I needed to purchase a particular type of LED light, and I thought instead of using Google, I would give another search engine a try. Bing offers shopping results, so I typed the specific type of light I wanted into the search field. The results I got were… a bit weird. Take a look: Granted, […]

I was shopping on my phone the other day just using the Google shopping results. The first retailer that came up with the product I wanted was Sears, so I headed to their mobile ecommerce site to find out more. The price was right, so I added the item to my cart and headed to […]

Ecommerce Snapshot: Disappearing Products on Rue La La

I was browsing through a sale on the ecommerce flash sale site Rue La La last week when I came across a little problem. Showcasing all your product images against a white background is a fine idea… unless the product is completely white! Having a picture is pretty useless when you can’t see the item at all: […]

Ecommerce Snapshot: what’s wrong with this picture?

I got this email in my inbox from Daily Steals, and at first I was so confused. There’s something wrong with this picture… Why would you offer desktop computers and Himalayan salt rocks in the same email? I showed a coworker who told me that it isn’t really so far-fetched. Apparently, one of the supposed […]

I came across a little something called the Buffer App last week. Basically, it’s an application that’s supposed to make it easier to share content across various social media accounts. Sounds cool!

Basically, when you perform a search for a product, the results page doesn’t show any product images, which can obviously make the shopping process pretty difficult. Well, we did a little more clicking around and found […]

Tag Heuer has recently released a new website. Besides taking an incredibly long time to load, it’s a beautiful site and why not? Tag Heuer has teamed up with some of the world’s most famous people to be the faces of their watches. The only problem is, they are impossible to find using their on-site […]

Ecommerce Snapshot: Moosejaw

I was shopping around on the Moosejaw website when I came across an odd filtering mistake I had actually never seen before–which is impressive considering how many filtering and refinement issues we come across on this blog! While browsing through the shoe selection, I wanted to narrow down my results by size. But take a […]

Last week, I saw that Nordstrom was having their Half-Yearly Sale, so I went on their website to check it out. I headed to the Men’s section, and clicked on the link for All Men’s sale items. I sorted by Price, low to high, and was pretty surprised by the results I got… Wow, Nordstrom […]

ECommerce Snapshot: Buy Buy Baby

I was on the Buy Buy Baby website, and noticed an option right under their logo: Turn Menus Off. “What does this do?” I thought to myself. So I clicked. It looks like nothing has changed, so what exactly is the point of this option? What does it do?? Is Buy Buy Baby just trying […]
