TrustPulse - WordPress Social Proof Plugin


Compatible up to: WordPress 6.4.1

TrustPulse is a powerful social proof plugin that can instantly increase site conversions by up to 15%. It displays recent customer interactions on your website (social proof) which is proven to grow trust, boost conversions, and increase sales.

We designed TrustPulse to be really easy to use, even for beginners. It only takes a few minutes to set up and works straight out of the box.

Of course, we also made sure it’s as flexible as possible. You can customize every detail of your notifications to match your branding, and you can set custom display rules that let you show your notifications to the right people at the right time.


You’ve likely already seen TrustPulse in action some of your favorite websites. TrustPulse notifications appear as a small popup on the right hand side of the screen. They look like this:

TrustPulse isn’t just for sales. You can show live notifications of other actions too, like demo registrations, survey completions, email newsletter signups, and much more.

You can even use TrustPulse’s “On Fire” notifications to show how many people are taking action. This is a great way to leverage FOMO (fear of missing out).
