The mistakes we mentioned in this article may not cover all the mistakes of all website but they are the most common. We hope that this article will be helpful for the online shop owners who are finding the answer for big question “Why their website does not run so well?”.Here is the list for you to refer:

  1. Asking for too much of information:


Of course, you may say that asking information is also the way to show that you are taking care of customers. But, you should recognize what is enough. A lot of customers feel annoyed just because you ask too much information related to details in a registration form, especially in checkout processwhile they just buy a very simple product. In ordr to deal with this problem, you should:

  • Letting customers place an order without requiring them to log in
  • Minimizing question amount in checkout step
  • Keeping maximum payment options
  • Minimizing the shipping charges as much as possible
  • Following delivery date and time accurately

  1. Poor product details:

Poor product details will reflect two cases: one is your product is not good, the quality is also poor as in product details page and the other case is that you are also not confident about what you are selling, so how can you give customers the proper advice? It is the shortest way you break customers’ trust. You should display your products effectively in terms of images, text, font, etc. Some tips for you:

  • Uploading high quality product images that are big enough but can be loaded faster
  • Mentioning every minute detail about the product
  1. Overdoing


It means complicating. You may want to show all the best things for visitor but have you ever thought that visitors feel overloaded and confusing, especially when you overdo with your homepage. When they want to search some information but there are too much things on your site but it lacks the basic information, we beg that those visitors will leave your site just in few seconds. You know the statement: LESS IS MORE? That’s so useful for this case. What you should do is:

  • keeping the font styles and colors to the minimum
  • Adding meaningful text and sufficient images


  1. Making it device specific:

Your customers do not just use desktop to approach your site, they have smart phones, tablet, laptop, etc. Don’t forget this fact when you design your website because the amount of smart devices users even exceeds desktop users. You don’t want to lose, you want more sale revenue? Making sure that your site will work well with both desktop and those smart devices.
