Today AT&T finds itself in the Ecommerce Outtakes Lion’s Den. Why exactly? Well, mainly for teasing users with a cool feature that doesn’t work. Take a look: I’m looking to upgrade my phone, so I logged into my account and began shopping around on AT&T’s ecommerce site. On the product page for the Samsung Galaxy S […]

I ordered and received a pair of shoes from ecommerce site GoJane.com about a month ago. Now, I admit I didn’t set my expectations too high. We have featured GoJane on the blog before, and wrote specifically about how the navigation and search are in need of some improvements. Despite this, I like the products, […]

As I scrolled to the bottom of the results, I saw an item that made me pretty confused. Target.com indicates to shoppers whether products can be purchased online, in stores, or both.

A friend steered me toward the Revolve Clothing ecommerce site, and right into today’s snapshot. When I navigated to the women’s dresses section, I looked to the left navigation for some refinement options to help me narrow down this selection.

I found the ecommerce site for Pitango Bikes on a list of websites with great design. And true enough, the design is clean and simple, and the site is easy to navigate. However, I have to point out one area where it lost me a bit. Pitango offers shoppers the option to order a custom […]
