Quick View on ecom sites

Does anyone have any good studies on the use of Quick View functionalities in ecom sites? 

For example Target offers a Quick View that opens a div with a limited set of information primarily focused on the product details.

Product Category Pages


I have been noticing a trend on many ecommerce sites recently away from providing category pages - that is, instead of providing top-level categories, a number of subcategories, some subsequent categories, and finally listing pages, sites are skipping some levels of category pages and going straight from top-level or subcategory pages to listing pages with hundreds of items.

Example: Men -> Shirts -> Polos (Listing 20 items) vs. Men -> Shirts (Listing 300 items)

Up-sell and cross-sell

Looking for good examples of sites that do a good job up-selling (items that are more expensive that what you're viewing) and cross-selling (items that compliment).

I KNOW I've come across great examples, but nothing readily comes to mind!!

Multiple Add to Cart/List in eCommerce

Hi all - 

I am looking for some sites/examples where users are allowed to add multiple items to a cart or wishlist at the same time from search results/browsing rather than having to drill down to product detail. Does anyone have any ideas/examples?

Thanks in advance!

Category Best Practice for eCommerce site

Does anyone know of any research that provides insight into the
recommended number of categories and subcategories a store should

I know best practice is to keep the options simple and easy to scan
(7-12), but for an ecommerce site it tends to be whatever is
necessary to adequately cover the breadth of your products. I need
some evidence on where to draw the line.

Looking for trends in the user experience design of e-commerce (shopping) sites

Hi all,

I am currently doing some research on trends in the user experience
design of e-commerce (shopping) sites.

- Which trends are you observing?
- Which concepts work/do not work based on your experience or user
research results?

(i.e., dragging and dropping products into shopping carts, facetted
search, etc.)

I am looking for trends in both fields:
- User research
- User experience design

Thanks a lot in advance.
