Lets’ face it. Web development is not easy by any means.eCommerce-website-design-development-san-francisco-e1364934858221 No matter what the project is, one needs to consider a whole lot of aspects ranging from UX to site performance. Developing an ecommerce website is a convoluted process and poses a number of challenges because, after all, users will be coming to the site to browse and buy products, developers need to make the site as intuitive and user-friendly as possible. However, that’s not enough. There are other things that developers must keep in mind, throughout the project. Those things include:

Responsive Web Design

Browsing Internet from mobile devices is commonplace now. Your site must keep up with the rest of the world and have a responsive design that will allow users to seamlessly browse and purchase products from their smart phones and tablets. You must also opt for mobile optimization to provide users the smoothest experience and make it easy for search engines to give you ranking.

Search Function

So, having a search function is vital if you want to keep them interested and it must be easy to find and use as well. Too many categories may just disinterest the visitors and influence them to go to your competitor’s website. In the search function, use autocomplete and faceted search to make sure that visitors find exactly what they are looking for and they find it fast.

Guest Checkout

Not everyone wants to or feels comfortable with creating an account on an ecommerce website as soon as they visit it. This you should know for a fact and let visitors select and buy products without an account. In order to do that, you need to enable guest checkout.

Site Speed and Security

As for site speed, here’s a fact that has been observed time and again. If your website takes more than 3 seconds to load, most users will leave it, especially those who are accessing it from a mobile device. You can prevent that by site optimization through steps like:

  • Merging all the CSS resource files and JavaScript files into single files
  • Using caching
  • Compressing images

Have a long and thorough talk with your developers and implement these to provide your users with a great experience and achieve greater ranking on search engines.
