Positive shopping experience at Angling Active, recognized via inclusion in Google Certified Shops program.
Angling Active, which offers fishing tackle, country wear, clothing and outdoors equipment, was recently selected to join the Google Certified Shops program. To help shoppers identify online merchants that offer a great shopping experience, the Google Certified Shops badge is awarded to ecommerce sites that demonstrate a track record of ontime shipping and excellent customer service. When visiting the Angling Active website, shoppers will see a Google Certified Shops badge and can click on it for more information.
“We are delighted to be recognised by Google for having consistent values within shopping and customer service. Having Google offer this certification confirms to both new and loyal customers alike that we offer a trustworthy service.” Chris Grantham, director.
As an added benefit, when a shopper makes a purchase at a Google Certified Shop, they have the option to select free purchase protection from Google. Then in the unlikely event of an issue with their purchase, they can request Google’s help, and Google will work with Angling Active and the customer to address the issue. As part of this, Google offers up to £1,000 lifetime purchase protection for eligible purchases.
Google Certified Shops is entirely free, both for shoppers and for online stores. The program helps online stores like Angling Active attract new customers, increase sales and differentiate themselves by showing off their excellent service via the badge on their websites.
