Why should my company use the Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee program?
The Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee is part of the D&B Shop Smart Program which helps your business establish credibility online and reach more potential customers. Your business can win more sales, stand out from the competition, and give customers peace of mind.
What type of business is the Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee right for?
The Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee is designed for online businesses (or businesses with an ecommerce component) that are reputable and reliable, so not all merchants may qualify. The Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee sets your business apart by demonstrating that your product is authentic, will be delivered on time, and that you will provide outstanding customer service if something goes wrong.
How does the Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee benefit my customers?
The Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee gives your shoppers peace of mind. They can make their online purchases while feeling less anxious about information security, merchant reliability and getting a good price. After a purchase is made, your buyer will receive an email with a Certificate of Guarantee. This reinforces your brand and increases buyer confidence, thereby reducing costly chargebacks.
How does the Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee work?
Here's the beauty of this unique program - you don't have to do anything! If something does go wrong, the customer can file a claim directly on the Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee website to take advantage of one or all of these free shopper benefits.
If your identity is stolen or damaged, you'll get access to recovery services and be reimbursed up to $10,000 for expenses like attorney fees, removing criminal judgments, and disputing credit reports.
The Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee helps you get reimbursed up to $1,000 of the purchase price if you do not receive the products/services ordered, in accordance with the merchant's terms of service.
Online prices change all the time. If a merchant lowers the price of an item on their website, the Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee helps you get refunded up to $100 of the difference.
In all three scenarios, it is the Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee that compensates the customer, not your business. So not only can the Dun & Bradstreet Shopping Guarantee help increase your revenue and repeat customers, it will save you time and money by acting as an extension of your Customer Service team.
