Design for
eCommerce

User experience for an eCommerce business could mean brand connect, product discovery, improved search experience, easy checkout process or conversion rate optimisation. Depending on the scale of your business, some or all of these eCommerce KPIs are addressed through UX design.

Our team of UX researchers and designers has collectively spent over a decade in helping eCommerce businesses achieve their business goals.

Our approach to designing for retail eCommerce

Our deep understanding of eCommerce platforms like Magento, Shopify and WooCommerce allows us to exploit the boundaries while creating development-friendly designs.

Enhance brand connect

Branding tells users about your page. Before we jump into working on the design process, we learn all the necessary information about your brand i.e. the USP of the product, target audience, positioning, tone, and choice of the brand, and more. All of these points directly influence the design and reflect the values of the brand through design to users.

Improve product search and discoverability

The ultimate goal is to sell the product, so it is important to ensure that the products are presented/made available to the customers in the most effective manner. Simply put, if the customers can’t find the product, they won’t buy the product.

Simplify product listings and descriptions

With eCommerce, customers cannot see, touch, or feel the product. The closest they come to know about the product is by its description and pictures.

Icon
Optimise the shopping experience

A few things we keep in mind when designing the checkout page are: Allowing guest checkouts, order confirmation after the purchase, showing all payment options, showing customers that the site is secure and more.

Icon
Traffic specific landing pages

eCommerce landing pages are like digital storefronts. These are pages where customers land when they click on a link, such as advertisements on social media platforms or emails, or similar places on the web.

Future-proof designs

There are innovations happening in eCommerce everyday. We create flexible, future-proof designs that can be easily incorporated with these innovations.

However, we don’t usually offer software development as a standalone service.
