The Baymard Pro: Checkout Usability include four tools:
All the tools within this rather complex and intertwined dataset are heavily interlinked so you can easily navigate from one context to another. Pay close attention when you change from one tool to another as the purpose and features change accordingly.
Below is a walkthrough of each of these four tools.
The "Top 100" tool documents the checkout processes of the top 100 grossing e-commerce sites in the US. You're able to go through the checkout process of each site and see what they are doing right and wrong.
Note: some Highlights aren't pinned directly on the screenshot as they are generic to the checkout step and can only be found in the "x Highlights" fold-out in the white sticky header.
In the "Step-type" tool you navigate by type of checkout step, so you can see e.g. all the "Payment" steps. This is useful for getting inspiration on design patterns for a specific checkout step, but also for learning what guidelines you should pay particular attention to (via Highlights).
Note: not all sites have all the step types in their checkout process (e.g. some sites don't have an "Deliver options" step), and some checkouts have multiple steps of the same type (e.g. account creation spread over two steps) - therefore the total number of specific step types will often be either below or above 100.
The "Guideline" tool is an extended online version of the 63 guidelines you find in your E-Commerce Checkout Usability report, that not only represent the report findings but also integrates with the benchmark data from the top 100 grossing e-commerce sites (the "Top 100" tool).
Note that a few guidelines will only have a couple, if any, highlights. Typically guidelines related to a flow or to a specific page state that aren't feasible to pinpoint to a specific checkout step, e.g. "#4 Preserve all customer input despite errors in the form". If you want to further investigate those guidelines use the "See detailed ratings" page to get links to the checkout process that violated or adhered to the particular guideline.
The "Review" tool is an interactive checklist that you can use to review your own checkout process (or your client's) according to the 63 checkout usability guidelines. Once you've reviewed a site, the Baymard Pro system will automatically calculate a usability score for it so you can compare the site against the "Top 100" benchmarked sites.
