Hayneedle’s overall e-commerce UX performance is mediocre. On a positive note, Hayneedle has decent Homepage & Category. This is, however, curtailed by poor Mobile E-Commerce and Product Lists & Filtering performances.

Hayneedle’s Homepage & Category performance is decent. It is especially a state of the art Category Taxonomy and good Site-Wide Layout that helps Hayneedle’s category UX.

Hayneedle’s On-Site Search performance is mediocre. Notably, Hayneedle’s on-site search performance is hampered by broken Results Layout & Filtering, although this is helped somewhat by good Search Autocomplete and decent Results Logic & Guidance.

Hayneedle’s Product Lists & Filtering performance is poor. Some of Hayneedle’s biggest product list usability issues are due to poor List Items: Interface & Hit Areas, broken Comparison Tool, and broken List Items: Product Info & Thumbnails.

Hayneedle’s Product Page performance is acceptable. Notably, Hayneedle’s product page performance is hampered by mediocre The ‘Buy’ Section and poor Product Variations, although this is helped somewhat by good Cross-Sells & Cross-Navigation and Image Gallery UI.

Hayneedle’s Cart & Checkout performance is acceptable. Notably, Hayneedle’s checkout performance is hampered by broken Gifting Flow & Features and Shopping Cart & “Added to Cart” Behavior, although this is helped somewhat by good Cross-Sells and User Interactions & Distractions.

Hayneedle’s Mobile E-Commerce performance is poor. Some of Hayneedle’s biggest mobile usability issues are due to poor Mobile Shopping Cart, Cost & Account, Mobile Product Page Layouts, and Mobile Form Field Usability. That said, their mobile design performs great within Touch Keyboards.
