There are many features your website must have in order to be successful online. Having a well-designed and attractive website is important, but it is not enough. Why should a visitor invest time and money in your products? How can you make a prospective buyer trust your brand?
One of the most important aspects of a website is Trust. Visitors form a perception of your brand within the first few seconds of viewing your site. Buyers need to be reassured that you are a legitimate business and that they can trust you with their email address, credit card information, and to fill their orders as expected.
If you are not a major supplier, this is not always easy to do, but there are some things you can learn from the most successful online sellers.
WholesaleCentral.com is one of the few human-edited directories, with very strict requirements. Because of this, buyers have learned to associate WholesaleCentral.com with trusted suppliers. The Wholesale Central Member Seal is a symbol of trust that can be included on the website of all active members to inspire confidence.
The Wholesale Central member seal is available only to active wholesalers listed on WholesaleCentral.com and is available in the supplier administration area. For more information on trust symbols, or how you can get the Wholesale Central Member Seal for your site, contact:
