Benchmark Overview

GAP’s E-Commerce UX

This is a case study of GAP’s e-commerce user experience (UX) performance. It’s based on a full-performance review of more than 550 design elements. 59 other sites have also been benchmarked for a complete picture of the e-commerce UX landscape

GAP’s overall e-commerce UX performance is mediocre. The main culprits of this are poor Accounts & Self-Service and On-Site Search performances.

GAP’s Homepage & Category performance is acceptable. For instance, GAP’s category experience has good Main Navigation yet suffers from poor Intermediary Category Pages.

GAP’s On-Site Search performance is poor. Some of Gap’s biggest on-site search usability issues are due to mediocre Search Query Types, Results Logic & Guidance, and Results Layout & Filtering.

GAP’s Product Lists & Filtering performance is mediocre. Notably, GAP’s product list performance is hampered by mediocre List Items: Interface & Hit Areas and List Items: Product Info & Thumbnails, although this is helped somewhat by good Filtering: Scope & Logic and Comparison Tool.

GAP’s Product Page performance is mediocre. Notably, GAP’s product page performance is hampered by mediocre Specifications Sheet and poor Product Page Layout, although this is helped somewhat by decent Product Images and Image Gallery UI.

GAP’s Cart & Checkout performance is acceptable. For instance, Gap’s checkout has state of the art Field Design & Features and good Cross-Sells yet suffers from mediocre Payment Flow & Methods (Incl. Third-Party) and poor Account Selection & Creation.

GAP’s Accounts & Self-Service performance is poor. GAP’s account experience is particularly thwarted by usability issues related to mediocre Account Dashboard, mediocre Orders & Order Tracking, and poor Account-Wide Navigation, Structure, & Information.

GAP’s Mobile E-Commerce performance is mediocre. Notably, Gap’s mobile performance is hampered by mediocre Mobile Shopping Cart, Cost & Account and poor Mobile Checkout Information, although this is helped somewhat by good Mobile Product Page Layouts and decent Mobile Product Lists.
