How Professional Customer Service and On-boarding Works at Trusted Shops
As an online retailer, you have a lot of different tasks that you have to coordinate on a daily basis: online marketing, logistics, shop systems. And then there are also regular legal updates that you need to implement in your shop to avoid breaking any laws. Because we know that, we, at Trusted Shops, want to support you in the best possible way. In today’s article, you’ll get an inside look at how that works. Get to know our Customer Success Team!
At the initial consultation (and, if necessary, at the conclusion of a contract), our sales staff will be at your side as experts for the right starting solution. Depending on your budget, the size, and the history of your shop, different packages are available. For example, the trustmark combined with the review system or just the review system.
"Not every solution fits every shop. Our staff will sit down and figure out what suits you and your shop best through our many years of experience."
Veronika Kaioukova, Director Sales

You can get in touch with your contact person for many reasons. Check with them regularly on how to best use the Trusted Shops solutions and find out which new features and product updates could help make your business even more successful.
Your contact person proactively approaches you and discusses which steps are currently the most sensible for your business. Since they have your most important KPIs in mind, they can help you figure out what the next logical steps for your business are.
As we mentioned before with our sales colleagues, we put a strong focus on the fact that not every solution fits every shop. Your Customer Success expert is there to help you develop your online shop. And if you have more in-depth questions on other topics like legal issues or marketing-related issues, your contact person can also help direct you to our other experts quickly and easily.
On-boarding in detail
In general, you’ll go through the following steps during on-boarding, depending on which products you’ve booked with us when starting off.
1) Integration of the Trustbadge®
The Trustbadge® is the technological basis for almost all Trusted Shops products. The code can be integrated into your shop quickly and easily. For most shop systems, we offer plugins that make integration easy even without programming knowledge.
If questions arise about integration, one of our technicians will assist you and carry out the integration process with you.
2) Start of the audit process
Once you have decided on the trustmark, your shop will be checked by a legal expert for different criteria. If you do not fulfil them right away, it is normal and not a cause for concern.
After the first check, you’ll be sent a report with the points that you still need to address in order to obtain the quality seal. If these are not clear, your legal expert will be available by phone and/or e-mail.
You then have time to improve those open points and have the shop checked again. If all points are met, your shop may bear the trustmark and you can start offering your shoppers the money-back guarantee.
3) Collect the first reviews
If the Trustbadge® is successfully integrated, you can start collecting reviews right away. The audit process can run in parallel without any problems.
To start off, you can, for example, begin with our Review Collector within a few minutes without any technical effort. With this tool, you can begin collecting a variety of new reviews. Send review requests to your current customer base with just a few clicks.
