Comodo's eCommerce Accelerator Kit Boosts Online Sales

A new package of eCommerce services helps customers feel safe trading with eMerchants.

Jersey City, NJ, September 29, 2008 - Comodo CA Limited, a leading Certification Authority and Internet security company, has announced the eCommerce Accelerator Kit, a new bundle of services for eMerchants looking to increase conversion rates and sales. These services have helped many merchants build sales relationships through trust, social authentication and privacy protection.

"What we hope to accomplish at Comodo is to build a trusted internet, one where people feel comfortable interacting with each other online," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. "For eMerchants, trust means that visitors feel safe becoming customers. Comodo's eCommerce Accelerator Kit is meant to comprehensively make sure trust is never a road block"

The eCommerce Accelerator Kit provides businesses with an EV SSL Certificate, HackerProof, and the UserTrust website review platform. EV SSL Certificates, featuring the famed green address bar, are the most rigorous digital certificate on the web, requiring the eMerchant to go through an extensive validation process. HackerProof gives visitors assurance that a daily vulnerability scan on the website was passed indicating that the site is free from major known vulnerabilities. UserTrust, a free social authentication platform, allows users to rate and review an eMerchant and have that rating on display for future customers considering to do business with the Company.

The eCommerce Accelerator Kit provides multi-dimensional trust building tools to improve web conversion. The unique combination of visual trust assurance and the ability to read peer reviews of a website means all prospective and existing customer's concerns are addressed up front. When using this kit, merchants have seen as much as a 250% increase in the value of each sale.

"People looking at new websites with whom they hope to do business often first look for trust marks and information about the site," said Abdulhayoglu. "The eCommerce Accelerator Kit should overwhelm new visitors with information about the site. Numerous eCommerce websites have already seen boosts in sales after using these services, and it should be no different for eMerchants in the future."
