HobbyTron now recognized as Google Trusted Store


HobbyTron, which offers a variety of RC products, Airsoft guns, and other high tech toys, was recently selected to join the Google Trusted Stores program. To help shoppers identify online merchants that offer a great shopping experience, the Google Trusted Store badge is awarded to e-commerce sites that demonstrate a track record of on-time shipping and excellent customer service.

When visiting HobbyTron’s website, shoppers can hover over the Google Trusted Store badge and see metrics on the store’s shipping and customer service performance. HobbyTron has a 99% on-time shipping grade.

“HobbyTron strives every day to ensure every customers order is shipped accurately and as quickly as possible. One of our biggest goals has always been to not only offer the best products but also the best service possible. From live chat customer service to fast shipping, we always want our customers to know they come first. Our past customers have helped us receive the Google Trusted Stores badge, and first time customers can look to it and know they’ll receive the best service we can offer.”

As an added benefit, when a shopper makes a purchase at a Google Trusted Store, 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 HobbyTron and the customer to address the issue. As part of this, Google offers up to $1,000 lifetime purchase protection for eligible purchases.

Google Trusted Store is entirely free, both for shoppers and for online stores. The program helps online stores like HobbyTron attract new customers, increase sales and differentiate themselves by showing off their excellent service via the badge on their websites.
