Google has replaced the "Trusted Store" badge in the product results within Google Search with a "Top Quality Store" badge. Google said, "there’s no action you need to take, and the update will not affect your performance metrics at all."

Google added, "We’re updating the “Trusted Store” badge, so now when you score an excellent rating on your Shopping experience scorecard, the badge will say "Top Quality Store" instead." Note that the Shopping experience scorecard program is only available if you're participating in Buy on Google or free listings in the US, AU, NZ, and CA.
