    I want to hear your thoughts on this topic. I think there is a list of design features that every website must have to stay competitive in the market.

    A user-friendly menu;
    Advanced search function and filtering;
    Call-to-action buttons;
    Popups;
    Product catalog;
    Product page.

    What have I overlooked?

      What I miss (as software functions):
      – a shopping cart
      – possibility to pay
      – a page to enter your name and address
      – accounts for the regular customers
      – a contact address for complaints and warranty
      – an easy to find return option

      Nice:
      – chat option to ask questions

      And why popup’s? Those disturb the normal processing, so drive the user away.

      When designing an ecommerce website, there are several must-have features that can greatly enhance the user experience and improve the overall performance of the site. Here are some essential features to consider:

      Responsive Design: A responsive design ensures that your website adapts and displays properly on different devices and screen sizes. It is crucial to provide a seamless browsing experience for users on desktops, tablets, and mobile devices.

      Intuitive Navigation: A clear and user-friendly navigation system is essential for guiding visitors through your website. Implementing well-organized menus, search functionality, and breadcrumbs can help users find products or information quickly and easily.

      High-Quality Product Images: Compelling and high-resolution product images are vital for attracting customers and providing an accurate representation of your products. Users should be able to zoom in and examine product details for a better understanding of what they are purchasing.

      Clear Call-to-Action Buttons: Well-designed and strategically placed call-to-action buttons prompt visitors to take specific actions, such as adding items to the cart or proceeding to checkout. These buttons should be visually distinct, easy to locate, and encourage users to move forward in the buying process.

      Streamlined Checkout Process: Simplifying the checkout process is crucial for reducing cart abandonment rates. Implement features like guest checkout options, progress indicators, and the ability to save user information for future purchases. Minimizing the number of steps required and providing multiple payment options can also improve conversion rates.

      Trust Signals and Security: Building trust with your customers is essential in ecommerce. Display trust signals such as secure payment icons, customer testimonials, and security badges to assure visitors that their personal and financial information is protected.

      User Reviews and Ratings: Including user reviews and ratings for products can significantly impact buying decisions. Positive reviews build trust and credibility, while negative reviews provide opportunities for improvement. Encourage customers to leave feedback to enhance the transparency and reliability of your ecommerce website.
