CULVER CITY, Calif. — August 29, 2012 – Today Magento, a leading eCommerce platform provider and division of X.commerce, Inc., an eBay Inc. company, announced a custom integration with Google Trusted Stores that makes it easy and fast for retailers using the Magento eCommerce platform to join the free Google Trusted Stores program.
This integration expands the already robust offering available on the Magento eCommerce platform, which includes integrations with other partners and with existing eBay Inc. services and entities including Marketplaces, PayPal, GSI and others.
Potential benefits of becoming a Google Trusted Store include increased online conversions and average order size, as seen by other retailers. The badge can appear within ads on Google.com and in product listings in Google Shopping.
To earn the badge, stores must demonstrate fast, reliable shipping and responsive customer service. Scores in these dimensions will be displayed in a report card that visitors can see when they hover over the badge on a retailer’s site. With these metrics, merchants can offer greater transparency to the online shopping experience.
More information about the free Google Trusted Stores program can be found athttp://www.google.com/trustedstores/merchants/ or directly on Magento at http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/google-trusted-stores.html
The Magento eCommerce platform serves more than 125,000 merchants worldwide and is supported by a global ecosystem of solution partners and third-party developers. Magento is a feature-rich, open-source, enterprise-class platform that offers merchants a high degree of flexibility and control over the user experience, catalog, content and functionality of their online store. In August 2011, Magento was acquired by eBay Inc., and is now a division of X.commerce, Inc. (an eBay Inc. company).
