Benchmark Overview

Lowe’s E-Commerce UX

This is a case study of Lowe’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

Lowe’s overall e-commerce UX performance is mediocre. This is in large part due to poor Accounts & Self-Service, mediocre Cart & Checkout, and mediocre Product Lists & Filtering.

Lowe’s Homepage & Category performance is decent. For instance, Lowe’s category experience has state of the art Site-Wide Layout and good Category Taxonomy yet suffers from mediocre Homepage.

Lowe’s On-Site Search performance is acceptable. For instance, Lowe’s search experience has good Search Form & Logic and Search Autocomplete yet suffers from mediocre Results Layout & Filtering.

Lowe’s Product Lists & Filtering performance is mediocre. Some of Lowe’s biggest product list usability issues are due to mediocre Filtering: Available Filters, poor List Layout, and poor List Items: Personalization. That said, their product listings perform well within Filtering: Interface & Layout.

Lowe’s Product Page performance is acceptable. For instance, Lowe’s product page experience has state of the art Product Images and good User Reviews yet suffers from mediocre Product Descriptions and poor Specifications Sheet.

Lowe’s Cart & Checkout performance is mediocre. Lowe’s checkout in particular suffers from usability issues caused by mediocre Payment Flow & Methods (Incl. Third-Party), mediocre Gifting Flow & Features, and poor Validation Errors & Data Persistence. That said, their checkout performs well within Cross-Sells.

Lowe’s Accounts & Self-Service performance is poor. Some of Lowe’s biggest account usability issues are due to mediocre Account Sign In, mediocre Orders & Order Tracking, and broken ‘Your Account’: Addresses, Payments, & Newsletters.

Lowe’s Mobile E-Commerce performance is acceptable. Notably, Lowe’s mobile performance is hampered by poor Mobile Product Descriptions, Specs, & Images and broken Mobile Product Page Layouts, although this is helped somewhat by state of the art Touch Keyboards and good Mobile Product Lists.
