Background

Trusted Shops is originally a German company founded in 1999, and has a presence in most European countries including the United Kingdom, Poland, France, Spain and Germany. The company brands itself as the "European trust brand in e-commerce", offering both a business solution and a consumer-facing money-back guarantee of £2,500 per purchase.

Working with over 25,000 shops in Europe, they strive to create a safer e-commerce experience for consumers, powered by authentic reviews, a money-back guarantee and a trustmark which aims to show consumers that a brand can be trusted. Trusted Shops' pricing is somewhat complicated, as it's correlated with a companies annual online revenues.

Final words

Trusted Shops offers a strong and time-proven service for the European market which companies big and small can benefit from. Given that they use reviews as one of three pillars of their service, companies do need to keep in mind the commitments required from the other two. Their pricing does seem to need an update, given that it requires a calculator to figure out a base price, and will likely incur additional charges given the setup.

We put this comparison together to help you as a business owner navigate the world of review platforms. There are so many different platforms to choose from, and this competition means that the power is in your hands.
