How to Optimize Ecommerce Product Pages to Increase Conversions
An effective and visually attractive product display can make the difference between closing sales, or losing opportunities due to customers becoming bored or confused. Your product display should be tailored to the type of merchandise you sell. For example, with luxury items like wristwatches and jewelry, customers appreciate having the ability to zoom in for a better look at the detail work on the product. Other products like clothing or tools are more engaging when displayed in motion using either videos or gifs. If pictures and videos don’t tell your product’s whole story, you may want to incorporate 3D displays into your pages. Such displays simulate a “hands on” experience, which can make customers more likely to complete the purchase.
Interactive features are the key to creating an engaging website that attracts visitors and retains customers. Your website can offer customers a more personalized experience with features such as the interactive clothing fitter.

Functionalities To Highlight Product Details
The Internet and eCommerce have come a long way in regards to how consumers can view products that are for sale online. Typically, shoppers get to see multiple images of products and additional details about the products, like sizes and materials used. However, sometimes customers want to know more!
Image Hover Preview With Zoom Functionality
This functionality is a popular feature on many eCommerce websites. The concept of the functionality is simple: Users simply hover their mouse cursors over product images on websites and onscreen windows with zoomed-in sections of the product images are displayed. When the mouse cursors move over product images, the onscreen windows change to coincide with the product images underneath the mouse cursors. With this functionality, it’s easy for your customers to get a better look at product details quickly and without any effort at all.
Similar to the Image Hover Preview functionality, the Animated Product Listing functionality allows shoppers to get a better idea of what the products listed for sale on an eCommerce site are. This functionality is a bit more immersive than the Image Hover Preview functionality though. It displays product listings as short videos or gifs. Users on your website can view products in a more comprehensive way by seeing them in motion and from multiple angles.
The 3D Product Images functionality allows your customers to look at products for sale on your website from every angle by dragging sliders to spin product images 360-degrees. By getting a more realistic view, customers can better gauge the products and this can encourage them to complete the purchase. Additionally, customers are more likely to be satisfied with their purchases when they know what to expect before purchasing.
Functionalities For Customized Products
The Design Your Own Product functionality allows shoppers to customize the products they want to buy and view product images that include their customizations. You choose the products, customization options, etc. Then leave the rest to your shoppers!
Tell Your Customers How Many Units Are Left
Display Product Quantity Per Item Size Or Option
The display product quantity per item size will display the number of remaining items in your inventory per the particular size the user selects. This functionality automatically updates when users choose a different size or color. This information is displayed in the form of a badge
Display how much stock of a particular product you have directly on product pages. Build a sense of scarcity and encourage users to buy before you run out of stock.
