Why Your Customers Abandon Your Site Before Buying?

You have a great looking site, fantastic products, and a killer shopping cart app. So why aren’t your customers buying?

Research shows that 56% of abandoned shopping carts are due to unexpected costs. If you ask your customers to pay $10.00 in shipping for a $5.00 item, they will balk. This is especially true now that shipping carriers are advertising low flat rates. Consider posting shipping costs within your product listing (i.e. Price $5.00 plus $10.00 shipping and handling). Also note from whom you must collect sales tax (i.e., “California residents add 9% sales tax”).

When Apple announced the iPad Air they also updated the whole site’s design

When Apple announced and launched for sale the iPad 2014, they also launched a make over for their website. In our opinion it’s cutting edge and looks great. They use captivating, larger and images your want to dive into as a singular focal point to sell their products. The simplicity is brilliant and “doesn’t make the user think” and is directed to buy or find out more. Also the navigation is still in the same familiar place so people can get around in a familiar easy way. Here are some screenshots of what we liked:
