What this means to you
Based on client feedback, we believe that the Customer Certified Medal will be even more widely adopted (beyond the thousands who already use it), increasing the recognition and the value of Bizrate Customer Certification to bolster consumer confidence in your website and brand. This is the first phase of our upgrades, so to take full advantage of the new medal, please use our most up-to-date medal code on your site.
How does the medal work?
The medal still updates daily and prominently displays the last date in which it was updated (today or prior day), showing that you are actively using the Bizrate Insights Buyer Surveys to gather customer feedback. The medal also still links directly to your Bizrate.com Report Card Page with Bizrate’s Smiley Scale™, allowing your customers to verify and gather detailed ratings.
The medal has 3 status levels so that you can always gain the benefits of participation: Customer Certified, Participating Store and Registered Store. Using our medal code properly ensures that your medal will automatically update to the proper status and date.
“Customer Certified” – This status is reserved for retailers who have received at least 20 Order Fulfillment (FF) surveys in the last 90 days. The overall score for the past 90 days must also be at least 6.0 in the following areas:
- Overall Satisfaction
- Likelihood to Buy Again
- On-time Delivery
- Customer Support
- Product Met Expectations
You may choose to use either or both of the two medal sizes available:
“Participating Store”- This status appears for retailers who have ratings data within the last 90 days, but do not meet the Customer Certified criteria.
“Registered Store”- This status appears for retailers who have an account, but have not received any customer ratings within the last 90 days.
