What Is ECommerce Web Design?

To put it simply eCommerce web design is the virtual practise of high-street window dressing.

The main ambition of eCommerce web design is to create an online platform, for you to sell your products, that is both attractive and influential for your target demographic. It may just seem like colours, pictures and aesthetics on the surface; but as you get more involved you realise that it is much more than just visual preference.

Consequently, it’s clear to see that eCommerce web design entails a lot more than simple pattern choices. It involves psychology, repetitive testing and frequent customer feedback. It also involves a lot of research!

In a way, the design of an online store is much more important than the design of a physical store. Inside a physical store you hear music and you see other shoppers, as well as staff members on hand to help. Products are also a lot more immediately accessible and there is space and time to move around as you browse. When browsing an online store you rely solely on your ability to see/read content and you are only usually influenced by these two factors. Therefore, your content design increases in importance dramatically.

Maintain High Speeds and Conversion Rates

What do we mean by that last sentence? Well one of the most important consequences of your eCommerce web design rests within its conversion rates. As mentioned previously, the effect your design has on a customer online is a lot more profound than with a customer walking into a high-street store. Therefore, how you dress your products up has a bigger effect on your sales online than it does on the high street. In most cases, it really doesn’t matter what you sell either. If you walk into a shop to buy a bar of soap you get to see the product up close; you get to hold it, sniff it and feel the weight of it in your hands. It doesn’t really matter what the shelf looks like where you have picked the soap up from.

Whereas online, you do not have any of those privileges. You rely heavily on the dress-up of the product and the presentation of the content around it to convince you to make a purchase. The design of a webpage is therefore much more important than the design of a shop shelf. What triggers your customers will change over time though, hence why it is so important to keep updating your design. The exact same can be said for technology. As the digital world becomes more sophisticated and the technology advances, it is just as important to update your web design to ensure it keeps running quickly and seamlessly. Maintaining high site speed is beneficial towards your conversion rates and site design/coding overload is one of the biggest detriments towards that.
