Ecommerce Discovery Report

Klevu has ranked retailers in this report using the Ecommerce Discovery Index, designed to help retailers simplify product discovery for shoppers.

 

Executive Summary

Industry research into product discovery methods on retailers websites reveals that there are usability and accessibility issues with the search experience on 80% of UK ecommerce websites. The main issues surround the ability to process complex or natural language phrases such as those involving price range or product attributes, or handle misspellings.
 
In the most critical cases, 26% of ecommerce websites couldn’t process simple misspellings and were unable to return relevant results and 30% showed zero results when faced with a complex query. This signifies that a vast majority of retailers are unprepared for the future of product discovery, including voice search, bots, and other zero interface interactions.
