A/B split testing of checkout pages (analysis to find out which checkout structure works better in an e-commerce site) has proven to be the best option for a better user experience during purchase.
This is becauseMulti-step structure helps customers feel more comfortable during the payment processaction as they better understand which step they are filling out.
During the checkout process, customers often need to add a lot of data on the same page, which can seem tedious and confusing. In a nutshell: frustrating.
Multi-step checkout helps to sort data and split them into different progressive parts: This makes the processClearer and tidier in the mind of the client. It avoids confusion and greatly reduces possible errors when filling out forms.As a result, cart abandonment, a common problem for websites with complex checkout features, has been greatly reduced and saved you from losing customers in the final stages of purchase.
