A shopper who spends a lot of time on your e-Commerce site and doesn’t convert may have been unable or unwilling to complete the purchase due to confusion.
Confusion can occur because a product’s description is incomplete or inaccurate or because the checkout process is difficult to navigate or presents surprises.
Unfortunately, many online shoppers who have successfully selected items to purchase ultimately abandon their shopping carts due to confusion or a lack of confidence.
Eliminating confusion increases conversions and opportunities.
Detailed, comprehensive product descriptions and a fast, easy and secure checkout can instill confidence, provide a positive customer experience and encourage the buyer to complete the purchase.
