SAN JOSE, CA (November  2014) –  CastCoverz!™, global provider of designer covers for orthopedic braces, casts, and crutches, announced today that it 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 the CastCoverz! website, shoppers can hover over the Google Trusted Store badge and see metrics on the store’s shipping and customer service performance.  CastCoverz! has a 100% rating for excellent service and a 99% rating for on-time shipping.  In addition, CastCoverz! far exceeded the 200 order per month minimum.  "Our mission is to serve our customers with exceptional customer service and quality products that make them feel better, so they heal better," said Annette d. Giacomazzi, CEO and Founder of CastCoverz!. "Being awarded the Google Trusted Store badge validates that CastCoverz! is America’s #1 trusted brand for orthopedic cover and comfort products.  Being the first in our industry to receive this award is an honor that we will continue to earn, everyday, one customer at a time.”

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 CastCoverz! 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 Stores is entirely free, for both shoppers and for online stores.  The program helps online stores like CastCoverz! attract new customers, increase sales, and differentiate themselves by showing off their excellent service via the badge on their website.
