SIMPLIFIED CART HEADER

Hypothesis

Simplifying the cart header can lead to a dramatic 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.

THE EXPERIMENT IN ACTION

CONTROL – MOBILE

TREATMENT – MOBILE

What We Did

All items not directly related to the checkout process or the continued shopping experience were removed 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 Did It

Typically, when shoppers reach the 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.

ANALYSIS OF DATA

What It Means

Simplifying the cart header can lead to a dramatic boost in RPV, particularly for mobile-driven revenue. Mobile users are often multi-tasking and highly distracted, so it makes sense that any measures taken to simplify the checkout process and remove distractions will have a positive impact on revenue. Finding the perfect balance between simplicity and functionality requires adaptive testing and we definitely recommend trying it for yourself.

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.
