SIMPLIFIED CART HEADER

Hypothesis

The more distracted a shopper is during checkout, the less likely they are to complete their purchase. The Simplified Cart Header reduces the number of elements in the mobile shopping cart header, thereby eliminating unnecessary distractions during checkout and increasing the likelihood of online mobile purchases.

THE EXPERIMENT IN ACTION

CONTROL – MOBILE

TREATMENT – MOBILE

What We Are Doing

All items not directly related to the checkout process or the continued shopping experience were removed from the mobile shopping cart design to create a simplified view. In cases where the simplified headers proved not to be effective, we progressively added header elements back to find a balance for reaching a boost in revenue.

Why We Are Doing It

Typically, when shoppers reach the shopping cart page, they either want a speedy checkout or a quick way to continue shopping. Simplifying the header should create the easiest path to both, and improve the overall shopping experience leading to increased online mobile purchases.

ANALYSIS OF DATA

What It Means

Simplifying the mobile shopping cart header can lead to a boost in RPV across all devices. Finding the perfect balance between simplicity and functionality requires adaptive testing and we definitely recommend trying it for yourself to find the best configuration for you.

WHO SHOULD USE IT

The Simplified Cart Header Experiment is available to merchants with multiple elements in their cart header. It is recommended for merchants who are looking to decrease shopping cart abandonment.
