With the addition of buySAFE to our site, we saw an immediate lift in our conversion and revenue along with a satisfying consumer experience
Arlington, VA and Port Charlotte, FL (Vocus) June 30, 2010
buySAFE, Inc., (http://www.buysafe.com) a leading provider of consumer confidence and website conversion solutions, and AquaSuperStore.com (http://www.aquasuperstore.com), a leading online retailer of discount swimming pool, pond, and backyard living products have reported an increase of over 5% in AquaSuperStore.com’s website conversion rates from implementing the buySAFE Bonding solution.
AquaSuperStore.com conducted a highly sophisticated website conversion impact test, where 50% of the traffic to their site experienced buySAFE and 50% of the traffic saw no buySAFE whatsoever. Controls were put into place to ensure that return visitors had the same experience – with or without buySAFE - on their subsequent visits. The A-B test took place over a multi-week period in May 2010 with over 120,000 website visitors participating, making the results highly statistically significant. AquaSuperStore.com’s over 5% jump in conversion and sales also produced an even greater increase in profitability as all of the additional sales generated via the buySAFE solution were completely incremental (e.g. no added spending on advertising).
“With the addition of buySAFE to our site, we saw an immediate lift in our conversion and revenue along with a satisfying consumer experience,“ says Chris Smith, Manager of AquaSuperStore.com. “buySAFE is a very effective solution to lift conversion and is a must have for every successful online business.”
“We are thrilled to have Chris and the team at AquaSuperStore.com join our family of over 3,000 buySAFE Merchants,” says Jeff Grass, buySAFE, Inc.’s President & CEO. With the buySAFE Seal and 3-in-1 bond guarantee option in checkout, shoppers can buy with total confidence. AquaSuperStore.com is committed to delivering great pool and backyard living products with a great customer experience, and we are pleased that buySAFE has contributed to the fast growth and continuing success of this innovative merchant.”
