From a list of nearly 10,000 online shops, we are proud to have been ranked #1 in Newsweek’s list of Best Online Shops 2022 in the Consumer Electronics category and proud to have been recognized once again in their 2023 list.
This is the third year in a row World Wide Stereo has been recognized by Newsweek as a Best Online Shop, and the first in the #1 position. The awards list can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website. This award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
The Best Online Shops were selected based on an extensive research effort that began with a thorough screening process. Newsweek cites: “On the internet, shoppers want the same things they look for in brick-and-mortar retailers, but they also want something else: sites that are easy to use and navigate.” To point their readers to the Best Online Shops, Newsweek performed detailed testing of nearly 10,000 online shops and conducted a nationwide survey of approximately 6,000 American online shoppers. Survey participants were asked to evaluate online shops on Trust & Security, Structure & Usability, Payment, Purchase & Delivery, Service & Communication, Technical Performance, and Likelihood of Purchase. Out of the thousands of online retailers evaluated, rankings recognize 1,000 shops across 39 different categories within 8 industries. Featured on Newsweek.com, rankings honor shops with the highest scores, recognizing them as a go-to destination for respective products/services and serving as a guide for their readers.
