    Shoebuy.com is recognized as one of the 35 'Best Performing E-tailers As Rated By Online Shoppers During The Holidays'

    “The awards are based on the direct unbiased feedback, collected at the point-of-sale and after delivery of goods, from more than 1,500 customers per merchant. 'As online retailing operations become more sophisticated each year, and consumer satisfaction needs become more demanding, we are particularly pleased to pay tribute to the outstanding 8% of merchants who actually exceeded this year's industry average,' said Chuck Davis, president and CEO of BizRate.com. While the majority of BizRate.com merchants provide good customer service - day in and day out, what makes the Circle of Excellence Platinum winners so noteworthy is they were able to surpass satisfaction standards during the busiest retail period of the year when a record-breaking level of online orders were placed.”
