Yesterday I stumbled across a really interesting article, you can read it here. Basically, this article talks about the size of a BUY button which set me to thinking…
How about changing the BUY button to something bigger and brighter.
The BUY button has to be the most important button in any e-commerce site so why not make it stand out and proud?
A basic osCommerce install has buy button that looks like this:
Which doesn’t do too much for your buyers experience in my opinion! Of course you can make your own buttons easily I previously posted about an online button generator that I found…
But how about using a totally different style of buy button, such as:
Doesn’t this look so much better than a plain flat, boring button? It’s certainly more eye-catching in my opinion. What do you think?
Would you be brave enough to swap out your tiny little buy buttons for something more outstanding like this?
Do you think that changing would hurt or help your sales? Let’s get a discussion going on this!
The Top 20(ish) osCommerce stores have these buttons:
In my opinion, the more “interesting” buy buttons are nearer the bottom of the graphic.
So, what next?
I am going to make a new buy button for my own oscommerce site! Once I have it made, I’ll post the URL so that you can see if it makes any difference!
