Looking for ways to add trust badges to your WooCommerce website?
Trust is a key factor in the success of any online store.
When customers trust you, they are more likely to buy products from you. Customers who are happy with their shopping experience will continue purchasing from your store and recommend people they know to do the same thing.
A trust badge is an icon that visually communicates to your customers key reasons to trust your store, such as a money-back guarantee or free/quick delivery.
Adding trust badges is a simple way to boost the credibility of your store and increase your conversion rate.
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to add trust badges to your WooCommerce store using a powerful WordPress plugin called Merchant.
Let’s get started.
