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%.
