23 design examples manually annotated by Baymard researchers

What’s this? Here you’ll find 23 annotated “Store Pickup” design examples from Baymard’s UX benchmark of 60 major e-commerce sites. (Note: this is less than 1% of the full research catalog.)

Omni-channel e-commerce sites will often have a unique advantage over their “online only” competitors, in the form of “Store Pickup” option(s), which is typically free and fast. This is important because our latest quantitative study on reasons for checkout abandonments reveals that 55% of US online shoppers have abandoned orders in the past quarter solely due to “Too High Extra Costs Added” (typically shipping), and that 16% have abandoned solely due to “Delivery Being Too Slow”. Hence, “Store Pickup” is a strong competitive advantage as it’s (typically) fast and free.

Yet, our large-scale UX testing also reveals that several of the design patterns commonly used for displaying “Store Pickup” actually cause most users to overlook the pickup option entirely.

More ‘Store Pickup’ Insights

  • Our large-scale UX testing on how users interpret and select “Store Pickup” options also reveals that of those users who do notice the alternative omni-channel delivery options, several users are unclear on the exact implications of choosing ‘Store Availability’ vs ‘Ship-to-Store’ vs ‘Store Pickup’.
  • In addition, the exact interfaces used for “Store Pickup” often don’t sufficiently account for the fact that many users will consider “Store Pickup” an alternative to home shipping, and hence wants to compare the details for these to options directly to each other.
  • Overall there are several, often missed, implementation details that can cause severe user misinterpretations when it comes to “Store Pickup” and other omni-channel delivery methods.
