SSNis a guide to the tested best shopping websites in the world. Our testing technologies have the ability to test many safety and reliability features of any merchant online. No other company possesses such consumer oriented testing software and results and our users know that. We have used these technologies to test thousands of top merchants from Amazon on down successfully mining useful safety and reliability information for consumers. We have used our data to create the first standard for Internet safety and reliability on the web. As visitors browse our listings they are able to compare each site to that standard.

We provide consumers with unbiased information, allowing the consumer to refine their search to find the best merchants on the Web. This all interprets to very high performance listings for our advertisers. Safe Shopping Network users are shoppers looking to buy - our average click-through rate to merchants is over 70% throughout our site and the average click-to-purchase rate is 5.4%.
