Major Content & Features Added Recently

Below are some of the most prominent research releases and features we’ve added to Baymard Premium:


UX assessment tests embedded at the end of all 700+ guidelines

We’ve just released a new feature that embeds the Review Tool’s assessment interface at the end of all 700+ UX research guidelines:

This means that each UX guideline now ends with a simple interactive UX quiz you can take to see to what degree your website is suffering from the observed UX issues. The tool also provides tailored advice on how to improve your site UX based on the more than 7,000 UI scenarios options found in the Review Tool.

Note that this embedded test is just a “sandbox” – so your selections do not get saved. If you want to perform a full UX assessment (across 1 or all 700 guidelines) and get a UX performance scorecard, use the Review Tool instead.


New 2020 Mobile UX benchmark with 6,300 Examples

We’re releasing another round of Mobile E-Commerce UX benchmarking in 2020 (publishing one in February 2020 and another in June 2020), with 55 large e-commerce sites rated across up to 220 of our mobile UX guidelines (form the new mobile v2 research study).

This provides you with 6,300+ new worst- and best-practice Mobile UX examples (3,300 more than in the February release), and 8,700+ new Mobile UX performance scores (5,100 more than in the February release).

You can view the Mobile E-Commerce UX performance and case-study dataset in the Benchmark tool, and you can see the 800+ new mobile design examples from leading e-commerce sites in the Page Design tool.

The 6,300+ worst- and best-practice examples are already embedded in the 200+ mobile UX guidelines.


New ‘Industry Views’ for grocery-, digital-, configurator-, and ‘physical store’-sites

We’ve expanded the existing “Guidelines by Industry” feature with 4 new collections:

  1. Groceries
  2. Software & Digital Services
  3. Product Configurators
  4. Sites with Physical Stores

If you work on an e-commerce site within any of these industries, we recommend that you start examining the 50-150 guidelines listed within the corresponding industry view page before diving into the full 700+ guidelines available in Baymard Premium.

We’ve created these industry lists by analyzing the UX performance ratings from our UX our past audits and using our benchmark dataset, looking specifically for which of the 700+ guidelines that — within each industry — have the largest collective negative UX performance impact. In other words, guidelines that most sites within the industry violate despite the guideline having a relatively high UX impact seen during usability testing.


New ‘Review Tool’ with 7,000+ Scenarios Based on 9 Years of Auditing Experience

Most of Baymard’s developer and design teams have spent close to one full year building a completely new version of the Review Tool available in Baymard Premium.

The Review Tool allows you to self-assess your own site(s), competitor sites, prototypes, and client websites, against any of the 700+ guidelines available in Baymard Premium. This enables you to:

  1. Identify and document UX issues across all 700+ UX guidelines.
  2. Get detailed research-backed instructions for how to improve UX.
  3. Get a topic-level UX performance scorecard and compare it to any top 60 site.

This new Review Tool builds upon our audit team’s nine years of experience conducting highly detailed UX audits, and have more than 7,000 site implementation scenarios available (or “UI patterns” if you will), that are each traced back to specific findings among Baymard’s 54,000+ hours of UX research, to determine the UX performance output. This enables you to create highly accurate and highly repeatable heuristic evaluations at levels that are otherwise unseen in the UX industry.

Try the Review Tool, or start by watching the below video intro:


‘Guidelines by Type’: see all guidelines that are ‘Quick Wins’, ‘UX Basics’, etc.

You now have a new way of navigating the 700+ research guidelines called “Guidelines by Type”.

This feature shows you different collections of guidelines that all have the same attribute.

The “Guidelines by Type” collections available are: Quick Wins, Missed Opportunity, Web Convention, ‘COVID-19’ Related, UX Basics. (More will be added later.)

The new guideline collections are good if you are interested in a particular type of guidelines, like “Low Cost/Quick Wins” or “UX Basics”.


New feature to see ‘Your Research Updates’

We’ve improved the “Mark as Read” feature in two ways:

  1. Both the Benchmark case studies and the Page Design collections now also have the “Mark as Read” feature, allowing you to say “I’ve read this content“. This helps you keep track of what you’ve read, and we’ll then also be able to inform you when there are research updates available to the content you’ve “Marked as Read”.
  2. We’ve now set up a centralized “Your Research Updates” page, that lists all the Baymard Premium research content you’ve clicked the “Mark as Read” button on, and that Baymard has subsequently updated with new research findings.

Tip: we strongly recommend that you use the “Mark as Read” button on all research content you’ve viewed – it’s the only way to keep track of your progress, to avoid duplicate reading, and to get notified about updates to the research you’ve read.


COVID-19 Relevant Guidelines

COVID-19 Relevant Guidelines we’ve assembled a list of the 58 existing Baymard UX guidelines that are the most relevant to consider in these COVID-19 times, covering user concerns such as like product availability, shipping, etc. - see it here

While Baymard haven’t done testing specifically during the COVID-19 crisis (as large-scale usability research simply takes too long to respond), the informational challenges users are facing right now. The list covers Baymard’s guidelines that relate to users’ general concerns over product availability, shipping speed, order returns, customer support, and similar.


New 2020 Mobile UX benchmark with 2,700 Examples

We’re releasing our new Mobile E-Commerce UX benchmark dataset. This provides you with 30 large e-commerce sites rated across the 120 new mobile UX guidelines (form the new mobile v2 research study), leading to 2,700+ new worst- and best-practice UX examples, and 3,600+ new UX performance scores.

You can view the Mobile E-Commerce UX performance and case-study dataset in the Benchmark tool and you can see the 400+ new mobile design examples from leading e-commerce sites in the Page Design tool.

The 2,700+ worst- and best-practice examples are already embedded in the 120 mobile UX guidelines.


New Mobile E-Commerce UX Study

We’re releasing our new large-scale Mobile E-Commerce UX study — the most comprehensive research study we’ve ever conducted. The mobile users encountered a massive 2,597 usability issues during testing, which we’ve distilled into 170+ new mobile e-commerce UX guidelines. These guidelines will reveal new mobile user behavior specific to e-commerce, where and how mobile websites need to deviate from desktop, which mobile design patterns consistenly cause issues and which perform well, and how to create a highly optimized mobile shopping experience. The new mobile guidelines also reveal which of the current approximately 500 “desktop” guidelines found in Baymard Premium that are actually “platform agnostic” and apply equally to both desktop and mobile sites.

Go see the theme overview page for the new extensive mobile UX study.

Note: The old mobile v1 guidelines are removed from the guideline navigation, but deep links to specific guidelines still work. The Review Tool will for newly created reviews use the new mobile v2 guidelines. Any reviews created before Feb 27 2020 will use the mobile v1 guidelines.


New 2020 Quantitative Research on 14 Different Topics

New quantitative 2020 research, providing you with the newest stats on user preferences and behavior across 14 topics, like: why users abandon during the checkout flow (see Checkout intro), why users shop online instead of in physical stores (see Product Page intro), mobile app install rates, utilization rates, and top 5 installed apps (see #930), what information types which will make users abandon the checkout (#731), which SSL and trust badges that give users the best sense of trust in a checkout flow (#587), how much more users rely on customer review averages if they have a higher number of votes (#517), and how users actually “save” products they aren’t yet ready to purchase (#798), frequency of order returns (here), why users unsubscribe from newsletters (here), how often users get new credit cards (#919), and more.


New UX performance graphs and improved Review Tool

After extensive development work, we’re excited to release a set of completely reworked UX performance graphs. The graph contains both improved UX scoring logic, improved visuals, and a new highly advanced prediction logic for unrated guidelines. The latter greatly improves how you can use the Review Tool right now, but also bring significant speed improvements to Baymard’s UX benchmarking going forward.

New prediction logic: the new UX performance graphs now include an advanced prediction logic for all unrated guidelines. This prediction logic uses the more than 57,000 UX performance ratings in Baymard’s benchmark database, to predict the score for unrated guidelines with a 95% accuracy. This means that the scorecards you create yourself in the Review Tool no longer need almost all guidelines rated before you get a UX scorecard - you can now rate just a small handful of guidelines to get a usable UX performance scorecard.

New UX scoring logic: the scoring logic itself is greatly improved, with better handling of guidelines that are not applicable to a site and with greatly improved “benchmark normalization” where all performance scores are adjusted on an ongoing basis depending on how the e-commerce industry as a whole evolves and depending how users’ expectations increase over time.

Improved Visuals: the graphs now include a sticky header and footer, there’s now gridlines to show the UX performance levels (“poor”, “mediocre” etc.), we’ve switched to a “swarm plot” instead of a “scatter plot” (meaning dots for sites with same performance will no longer collide).

New custom graph views for UX Audits: lastly, the UX performance graphs now support custom view structures. This greatly improves Baymard’s UX audit performance scorecards, where the audit scorecards can now be even more tailored to the specific client industry.

Normalized numbers: The UX performance score numbers are now also normalized on a 0-100 scale. This makes the performance numbers easier to interpret and makes them fully comparable across Theme, Topics, and scorecards. (Note the score range have two special cases: “-100 to 0” scores for “Broken” UX performances, and “101 to 200” for “State of The Art” performances).


New Product Page UX benchmark with 3,700 Examples

We’re releasing our new Product Page UX benchmark dataset. This provides you with 59 large e-commerce sites rated across the 95 Product Page UX guidelines, leading to 3,700+ new worst- and best-practice UX examples, and 5,600+ new UX performance scores.

You can view the Product Page UX performance and case-study dataset in the Benchmark tool and you can see the 265 new product page design examples from leading e-com sites at in the Page Design tool.

The 3,700+ worst- and best-practice examples are already embedded in the 95 product page UX guidelines. We recommend you start with the ‘Current State of Product Page UX’ analysis.


New Search UX benchmark

We’re releasing our new E-commerce Search UX benchmark dataset. This provides you with 59 large e-commerce sites rated across the 50 Search UX guidelines, leading to 1667 worst- and best-practice Search UX examples, and 2800+ new Search UX performance scores.

You can view the Search UX performance and case-study dataset in the Benchmark tool and you can see the 237 new search design examples from leading e-com sites at in the Page Design tool.

The 1600+ worst- and best-practice examples are already embedded in the 50 search UX guidelines. We recommend you start with the ‘Current State of E-Commerce Search UX’ analysis.)


New Late-2019 Quantitative Research on 9 Different Topics

Nine rounds of new quantitative research, providing you with new late-2019 stats on user preferences and behavior on things like: why users abandon their order during the checkout flow (see Checkout intro), why users shop online instead of in physical stores (see Product Page intro), mobile app install rates, utilization rates, and top 5 installed apps (see #930), what information types which will make users abandon the checkout (#731), which SSL and trust badges that give users the best sense of trust in a checkout flow (#587), how much more users rely on customer review averages if they have a higher number of votes (#517), and how users actually “save” products they aren’t yet ready to purchase (#798).


New Mobile Study (In Progress): 141 Mobile Guidelines Published So Far

The research team is currently conducting a new large-scale Mobile E-Commerce UX study — the most comprehensive research study we’ve ever conducted. The mobile users encountered a massive 2,597 usability issues during testing, revealing new mobile user behavior specific to e-commerce, where and how mobile websites need to deviate from desktop, and which of the current approximately 500 “desktop” guidelines found in Baymard Premium are actually “platform agnostic” and apply equally to both desktop and mobile sites.

Timeline:

  • Currently 141 ‘mobile only’ and ‘platform agnostic’ guidelines have been written and published to the theme “Mobile E-Commerce Version 2”.
  • The remaining 50-80 guidelines mobile guidelines will gradually be released as they are written during the next couple of months.
  • November 2019 we’ve started a new round of Mobile UX benchmarking, initially of 20 sites, expected to be out Q1 2020.
  • Early 2020 the old mobile v1 guidelines will be removed from the guideline navigation (deep links to specific guidelines still work), and Premium will switch fully to use the Mobile V2 guidelines (incl in the Review Tool).

‘Industry’ Feature: See the 50–150 Most Important Guidelines to Your Industry

You now have a new way of navigating the 700+ research guidelines called “Guidelines by Industry”.

This feature shows you the 50-150 most important guidelines to read first for a single industry (e.g. for apparel sites, mass merchant sites, etc.) and can be found next to the other research Themes in the Guideline tool.

The industry views available are: Apparel, Mass Merchant, Electronics & Office, Home & Hardware, Houseware & Furnishings, Health & Beauty, Sports, Toys, & Hobbies, and Business-to-Business. (More will be added later.)

If you work on an e-commerce site within any of these industries, we recommend that you start examining the 50-150 guidelines listed within the corresponding industry view page before diving into the full 700+ guidelines available in Baymard Premium.

We’ve created these industry lists by analyzing the 57,000+ UX performance ratings from our UX benchmark dataset, looking specifically for which of the 700+ guidelines that — within each industry — have the largest collective negative UX performance impact. In other words, guidelines that most sites within the industry violate despite the guideline having a relatively high UX impact seen during usability testing.

The industry view is meant as a starting point. Any given site within these industries should still pay attention to all the 700+ UX guidelines in Baymard Premium. To make that task more manageable, those 50-150 guidelines found within the “Guidelines by Industry” list will for most sites (within those respective industries) be the best starting point for improving their overall UX.


New Cart & Checkout UX Benchmark Added with 5,000+ New Examples

We’ve added a new Cart & Checkout benchmark with 59 sites benchmarked. This provides you with:

  • 5,054 new worst- and best-practice checkout implementation examples. These examples are added to each of the relevant 134 checkout guidelines
  • 7,906 new checkout UX performance ratings, added to the benchmark
  • All benchmark case study pages have had their checkout UX walkthrough updated
  • 427 new annotated checkout step design examples, added to the Page Design tool

A good starting point for getting an overview of the overarching insights from this new vast dataset would be to read the updated Cart & Checkout UX benchmark analysis.​


‘Compare Mode’ Added to Scorecards

The UX performance charts now have two features to make performance comparison easier:

  1. Select Sites for Comparison — All scorecards now have an actual “Compare” mode that enables you to load specific scorecards into your current bar chart for comparison. This allows you to make direct performance comparisons between: any Review Tool scorecards you’ve created yourself, any UX audit performance scorecards Baymard have conducted for you, and any of the 60 case studies from the Benchmarks. You can enter this comparison mode by clicking the “Compare” link found in lower right corner of each bar chart graph.

  2. Superimposed Benchmark Performances — All bar charts now have the entire benchmark scatter plot superimposed as small grey dots below the bars. This means that in all UX performance bar charts you now get 39,500+ UX performance ratings (from the top 60 grossing e-commerce sites in the world) summarized right next to the site performance you’re currently viewing, providing much better context for the bar chart performance.


Search Tool Added to Premium

You can now search within Baymard Premium and Baymard.com.

You’ll find the new search tool in the upper right-hand corner of the main navigation, and it allows filtering by both Research Theme and Content Type.


‘Importance’ Added to All Guidelines

The beginning of all guidelines in Baymard Premium now lists an “Importance” sentence that describes overall importance of reading a guideline in three levels; “Detail”, “Impactful” and “Essential”. This makes it easier to immediately understand the relative importance of a guideline before reading it.

The importance is mostly based on how much of an impact we observe the underlying UX issue have on end-users. This part is the “Severity” and “Frequency” data from our large scale test sessions we’ve now combined into a single “Importance” sentence. Generally, all of the 74 research topics list the guidelines by their importance — so those guidelines found first within a topic are always more important to read than those at the end of the topic. (In some instances guideline sequence within topics deviate slightly from this if we deem that it vastly improves the reading experience of the whole topic.)

Select guidelines are also tagged as being a “Missed Opportunity”, “Web Convention”, and/or “Low Cost”:

  • Missed Opportunity: Our benchmark reveals that many sites fail to address this UX issue, despite the issue also having a significant UX impact — making it a ‘missed opportunity’. Be sure to check your site doesn’t suffer from this issue as well.
  • Web Convention: This guideline is a “Web Convention” as our benchmark reveals that almost all sites adhere to it — meaning that it’s also an experience users are highly accustomed to having. Be careful about breaking this user expectation.
  • Low Cost: This guideline will often be relatively low cost to implement for the average e-commerce site (compared to other guidelines).

If a guideline meets any of these three requirements, the guideline Importance level is boosted beyond its “severity” and “frequency” test values — as we then deem it more important to read.


Account & Self-Service Benchmark Added With 2,000+ Examples

We’ve finished the Accounts & Self-Service benchmark with 42 sites benchmarked across the 65 Accounts & Self-Service guidelines.

This provides you with a total of 2,000+ implementation examples for the 65 guidelines, 2,700+ UX performance ratings in the benchmark, and 330 annotated page design examples available in the Page Design tool.

Compared to the other overall themes of e-commerce UX, Accounts & Self-Service is the overall theme with by far the fewest decently or well-performing sites, and the theme with the second highest amount of mediocre to poor performances (only surpassed by e-commerce Search UX).

We recommend that you read the “Accounts & Self-Service benchmark analysis” as it provides a good overview of the research and highlights commonly missed opportunities relating to the account management and the order tracking & returns experience.


‘Current State of the E-Commerce UX Landscape’ Analysis Added

We’ve added a high-level analysis of the “current state” of the e-commerce landscape as a whole (from a UX performance point of view), based on the 40,000+ current UX performance scores in our benchmark database, which cover 60 major e-commerce sites across multiple industries.

We strongly recommend this for those wanting the complete overview of the e-commerce UX industry and our overarching research findings, before diving into the specific themes, topics, and guidelines. For this reason, it’s also linked to from the top of the Guideline page and the Benchmark page.

Read our new ‘Current State of the E-Commerce UX Landscape’ analysis now. ​


Exam & Certification: Become a “Certified UX Professional by Baymard Institute”

All Premium users on the Medium and Large accounts can now in the Exam & Certification tool take a series of exams and — if passing all six exams — become a “Certified E-Commerce UX Professional by Baymard Institute”.

Certification also includes an (optional) profile page in Baymard Institute’s public list of “Certified E-Commerce UX Professionals” - certifying your high level of knowledge and expertise specifically within e-commerce User Experience to clients, partners, and current or future employees.


Upcoming Features & Research

Each year we conduct 12,800+ hours of new UX e-commerce research for Baymard Premium, on top of this our developer team then adds another 6,500 dev hours to add new features to Premium.

Here’s the roadmap of upcoming features and research:

  • Mobile E-Commerce UX benchmarking: The research team is currently working on benchmarking another 30 sites for the mobile UX benchmark, across the 200+ Mobile UX guidelines.
  • Product Lists & Filtering UX benchmarking: The research team is currently working on a new UX benchmark for the 95 Product Lists & Filtering guidelines.
  • ‘Share Scorecard’ in the Review Tool: the ability to “Share Scorecard” outside your company’s Premium account. E.g. sharing a Review tool scorecard with a client in its interactive state (incl the Compare tool). (The guideline titles will be obscured).

Changelog

How often are the research findings updated?

For Baymard Premium we conduct approximately 12,800 hours of new UX e-commerce research per year (on top of this our developer team then adds another 6,500 dev hours to add new features to Premium). How many new findings that yields depend entirely on the topics we research and what kind of evolution we see in user behavior (some e-commerce aspects change faster than others).

But from experience, we know that each year we will:

  • Create ~100 new guidelines.
  • Rewrite another ~100 existing guidelines with new findings and user behavior (combined with the new guidelines, this corresponds to around 1,500 pages of new UX research every year).
  • Conduct 4 completely new UX benchmarks, which will typically provide you with 15,000+ new best-practice UX examples and 20,000+ new UX performance scores every year.
  • Add 1-2 major features, along with 5-10 smaller improvements to existing features.

Important to note: generally, for usability research, there’s a big difference between the decay of aesthetic web style trends and the decay of actual user behavior. While style trends and aesthetic preferences change quickly, often every year, user behavior and the underlying causes of usability issues change much more slowly; for example, quite some users still double click online even though that hasn’t been relevant for 2 decades. That’s also why one of our audit clients saw a $10 million increase in annual sales from just a single checkout change, based on a checkout guideline dating back to our very first checkout study from 2010. At Baymard we, therefore, tend to go for less frequent, but more in-depth, study updates (tied to changes in actual user behavior) rather than superficial refreshes (on style trends).

  • (May 2018) Cleaning up Baymard Pro: All of Baymard’s old study structures have been broken down. Here we’ve deleted 32 guidelines, as these findings actually were better to merge into overlapping guidelines in other studies. That’s removing approx. 300 pages of text, and 1000+ best/worst practice examples that were actually redundant, but used to be required for the old 6 Baymard Pro studies to work as individual products. In addition, we have merged or restructured 29 chapters to allow for better reading flows within each research theme.
