3. General good practices

3.1. Keep customers informed at all times

3.1.1. Giving customers the right information at the right time can minimize confusion and set correct expectations

3.1.2. Show the checkout progress in a diagram or numbered steps

3.1.3. Show the cart / total amount on all steps

3.1.4. When user changes shipping / payment details, display the cost involved & recalculate the total amount dynamically

3.2. Mobile experience

3.2.1. 3/4 online shoppers browse online offers using their mobile devices. Only 1/4 actually buy using those devices...

3.2.2. So be responsive...

3.2.3. Use larger fonts / buttons

3.2.4. Place call-to-action buttons at the top and bottom of each step

3.3. Accounts

3.3.1. Don't force shoppers into creating an account

3.3.2. Give them the option to create one after completion (now they just have to choose a password ...)

3.4. Input fields

3.4.1. Ask only what you actually need to complete the order. Extra information can be obtained after the ecommerce conversion

3.4.2. So go easy on the number of input fields

3.4.3. Display fields dynamically & try to auto fill-out based on the previous input (Postal code vs City, Vatnumber for companies, ...)

3.4.4. Validate the input asap, don't wait for the submit
