Benchmark Overview

Walmart’s E-Commerce UX

This is a case study of Walmart’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

Walmart’s overall e-commerce UX performance is acceptable. This is especially thanks to good On-Site Search and decent Cart & Checkout UX performances, but Walmart is impeded by mediocre Product Page and Mobile E-Commerce.

Walmart’s Homepage & Category performance is decent. For instance, Walmart’s category experience has good Site-Wide Layout and Main Navigation yet suffers from broken Intermediary Category Pages.

Walmart’s On-Site Search performance is good. It is especially a state of the art Search Form & Logic, state of the art Results Layout & Filtering, and good Search Query Types that helps Walmart’s on-site search UX. Do, however, watch out for their poor Results Logic & Guidance performance.

Walmart’s Product Lists & Filtering performance is acceptable. For instance, Walmart’s product listings have state of the art Filtering: Available Filters and good Comparison Tool yet suffer from poor List Items: Personalization and broken Filtering: Scope & Logic.

Walmart’s Product Page performance is mediocre. Walmart’s product page experience is particularly thwarted by usability issues related to mediocre Shipping, Returns, and Gifting, mediocre Cross-Sells & Cross-Navigation, and poor Product Page Layout. That said, their product page experience performs well within Product Video & 360-View.

Walmart’s Cart & Checkout performance is decent. It is especially a state of the art Payment Flow & Methods (Incl. 3rd-Party), Credit Card Form, and Shipping & Store Pickup that helps Walmart’s checkout UX. Do, however, watch out for their broken Account Selection & Creation performance.

Walmart’s Mobile E-Commerce performance is mediocre. Some of Walmart’s biggest mobile usability issues are due to mediocre Mobile Product Lists, mediocre Mobile Product Page Layouts, and poor Mobile Homepage, Navigation, & Search. That said, their mobile design performs great within Touch Keyboards.
