November 10, 2020 - COPENHAGEN, LONDON, NEW YORK - Trustpilot, a leading online reviews platform, today announced it has surpassed $100 million in annual recurring revenue (ARR) in the third quarter of 2020. This is generated from the more than 19,000 businesses who subscribe to its software as a service (‘SaaS’). In total, Trustpilot hosts more than 100 million reviews of more than 400,000 businesses and websites worldwide.
“Reviews are second only to family and friends as the most trusted source of information about businesses, with 89% of consumers saying they check online reviews before making a purchase,” said Peter Mühlmann, founder and CEO of Trustpilot. “Covid has accelerated eCommerce growth by as much as 50% in some areas. I believe the need for trusted consumer reviews from a trusted source is critical for every company.”
