04 Jan Make Your eCommerce Website More Credible with Card Brand Logos
As an eCommerce merchant, you want a low rate of abandoned carts. Unfortunately, the reality is that online shoppers abandon nearly 70% of their purchases during the sales process. However, you can do things to reduce abandonment rates and increase sales.
When addressing a high rate of abandoned carts, you first want to look at your website design, flow, and checkout process. You can do a lot with your website to make purchases more straightforward and encourage completing checkout with a full cart.
After you’ve done your due diligence examining and altering your overall website design, you may want to look at your credit card icons. Many people neglect to address this aspect of eCommerce website design. You want to make sure that:
1. You’ve placed credit card icons in appropriate areas
2. Your displayed credit card icons represent the payment methods you offer
3. The credit card icons you have are high-quality images
When shoppers see their payment options represented with high-quality credit card icons in well-placed locations, it adds a sense of legitimacy to the checkout experience and your brand in general.

Now that you have your free credit card icons, it’s time to determine where to place them on your site.
Many online shoppers look to the website footer when assessing their payment options. The footer is an excellent spot for card images because it’s centrally located and easy to find. Shoppers can glance down, see the available payment options, and know their preferred method is accepted.
Another common location for card icons is the checkout page. The checkout page is the cash register of your eCommerce site; it’s where people step up to pay for the items they want. When card images are on the checkout page, it reassures shoppers that they can trust your brand and that their transaction will be safe and secure.
When used correctly, credit card logos can reduce the number of abandoned carts and boost sales. When shoppers see big brand names like Visa, Mastercard, and American Express, they gain trust in your brand and reassurance that their transactions will be safe and secure.
