Opt for a consolidated header that takes minimal space

Compact and Uncluttered The header is  the first stop for anyone using your site. It should announce who you are while offering easy navigation to the rest of the site.     The fact that the header appears on every page makes it doubly important for you to get it right. Your header should offer […]



Have as few menu items as possible

15 seconds. That is the average amount of time a person spends on one website.

The burger menu should be easy to close

A failure to […]


Best Practices Category Search

Have a cart button on the listing for low-ticket items

The amount of time people spend considering a purchase is often proportional to the cost of the item in question.

Avoid full-page popups

According to research by Hubspot, 73% of mobile users are annoyed by full screen pop-ups. But we didn’t need research to tell us that.

Simplify your logo on mobile

There’s less space on mobile. The ideal solution is to have a logo already so simple that it is just as clear on desktop and mobile. But perhaps that’s not your case. An easy solution to that is to simplify it. If on desktop it contains a slogan underneath, remove it on mobile. Make sure […]


Allow users to swipe through product gallery images

Given that 53% of global internet traffic comes from mobile devices, making accommodations for your mobile visitors is crucial for a great user experience.   Allow swiping Swiping is the second most used feature on touchscreens after scrolling. The gesture is deeply rooted in human psychology and even babies have been observed making it when […]


Test bottom menus on your mobile site

If you have used any mobile apps lately you may have noticed that a lot of menus are at the bottom. This is down to how people hold their phones. 49% of people hold their phones in one hand and do most of their scrolling with a single thumb. 36% hold their phones in one […]


How should you present language and currency options on mobile?
