Case Study Roundup: See how TrustedSite performed against top competitors in recent tests

At TrustedSite, we believe in the power of building visitor trust to increase conversions on ecommerce sites. We also believe that testing is the best way to measure the impact of TrustedSite.

We’ve gathered the results of 4 recent experiments that tested TrustedSite against competitor trustmarks and summarized the performance in each case. All but 1 of the following tests were conducted by third-party conversion optimization agencies (StealthBelt® ran their test in-house).
