Product detail pages are one of the most important factors for conversion for ecommerce sites. It’s typically the last stop a user takes before adding an item to their cart and is where they learn about the product. Like most retailers, this major liquor chain with a large online inventory has a lot of important components to juggle on their product detail pages: product image, item details, product recommendations, item name, item price, quantity selector, and more. While all of these components have a part to play in driving conversions and customer satisfaction, they must be presented and highlighted at the right time.
Figuring Out What Matters on a PDP
The original PDP displayed four main elements:
- Product image
- Item name, price, quantity selector module
- Extended item details
- Cross-sell module with product recommendations
The optimization team suspected that while the extended item details seemed critical, they weren’t actually that important to customers, or to driving conversions. In this A/B test, they removed the extended item details and brought the cross-sell product recommendations module above the fold.
This A/B test brought a major revenue boost. The new product detail page saw a lift of 8.5% in adds to cart. Order confirmations on the new page went up by 18%. Over the course of the year, the new page will deliver $1.1 Million in additional revenue.
Moving forward, the team released this variation to 100% of traffic.
