Introduction 

It is important to gain the trust of your clients.  Without trust, your bounce rate might be higher and your sales much lower.  How to gain their trust? The new trend to gain trust is to use the trust icons!  These are various confidence boosting logos and badges that could be put on the footer of your online store. There are various types of logos and badges that range from the simple SSL Certificate badge to some more sophisticated.

What are trust icons?

They come in various designs and have multiple purposes. Some assure the consumers that their transaction is secure (VeriSign) or that the site is free from viruses (McAfee Secure) while others indicate that the site owner has met an external standard for privacy controls (CyberTrust). Some of the most common Arabic ones in the MENA region are Mothoq and Maroof. They’re generally badges, icons, and seals, that when displayed on a site serve to gain the trust of your clients from a glimpse of an eye! Here is what they would look like in your store:
