Challenge

Customer identified several challenges impacting their Product Detail Pages (PDPs), including:

  • High Bounce Rate: Visitors were leaving product pages quickly, indicating a lack of engagement on the product detail pages without engaging further or making a purchase, leading to a high bounce rate.
  • Limited Customer Engagement: The existing product detail pages lacked interactive elements and engaging features, resulting in a passive browsing experience for customers.
  • Incomplete or Confusing Product Info: Product information wasn’t presented in a clear and compelling way. Confusing product information led to customer hesitation and abandoned purchases.

  • Improve conversion rates by providing clear product information and enhancing user experience.
