In recent usability testing of an e-commerce site in Sweden we confirmed the low motivation of signing up for an account. We worked on the problem and brainstormed a solution to “shop as a guest”.
One of the stakeholders is concerned about fraud and swindles, especially writing a wrong email address which we need for order confirmation. Some wrong person would get a confirmation about an order which he/she has not placed and contact the media about our uncontrolled customer data.
I started in information architecture in 2007, I got out of it and now I am trying to get back into IA/UX. I consequently do not have the 5+ years of experience or the mandatory "senior titles", but I do have the education! I came across this in a recent job posting: "5+ years of agency experience working on site builds. Someone who really understands the user experience." I was initially hired because I was a user experience professional.
