I'm curious to know where others stand with regard to credit card logo
placement on an ecommerce site. We're of differing opinions here - one camp
believing that credit card logos are best placed straight on the home page,
right in the top - prominent placement - and have the statistics to
prove that there is an increase in conversion as a result of said placement.
The other camp comes from a design perspective, and believes that credit
card logos are aesthetically unpleasing to the overall design (cheapening
the look and feel) and that the credit card logos are better placed where
they are more contextually appropriate - that is - within an in-page
shopping cart box (which displays once an item has been added to the cart)
and on the shopping cart pages themselves.
