Arlington, VA, and San Antonio, TX (Vocus/PRWEB) April 07, 2011
buySAFE, Inc., a leading provider of consumer confidence and website conversion solutions, and CopShoes.com, a leading online retailer of footwear, determined during a recent A/B test that buySAFE significantly increased their website conversion rates and sales.
CopShoes.com utilized an A/B testing methodology to objectively measure the conversion, sales and profit impact of using the buySAFE Bonding service. The results were clear and impressive. buySAFE increased the CopShoes.com website conversion rate by 7.2%. The test was conducted over a multi-week period in August 2010 with over 425,000 unique site visitors included. The results were highly statistically significant. Over the course of a year, this conversion rate increase will translate into significant increases in sales and profits for CopShoes.com as a result of using buySAFE.
“Understanding the positive impact our organization received through buySAFE’s A/B testing has allowed us to make an educated and well thought out decision,” said Matthew Alper, CEO of CopShoes.com. “With our use of buySAFE for our websites, our conversion has increased and our consumer experience has improved. By simply providing a 3rd party guarantee, both we and our customers are benefitting from this service. For us, this makes complete sense, as our focus is making sure our customers continue to enjoy shopping with us.”
