Problems we found on e-commerce websites:

Costco: product page missing after redirecting from search results

In this case we located an issue on the popular e-commerce website costco.com that occurs when a user is searching for a specific product. The website displays the correct product title with images after the user completes the search process. However once the user clicks the link of the specified product, the website displays an error message for a ‘product not found’ instead of the according product page expected by the user.

Walmart: product search in a category shows unrelated products

When a user searches for a specific product in the “Auto & Tire” category, and then selects the “Tires” category on the left – the search is supposed to generate results in the tires category, but the listing results from the website show many non-tire products such as candle holders from the “Decor” category.

Indigo: no product images

Indigo is the largest bookstore in Canada. Their e-commerce website competes directly with Amazon for the Canadian online booking market. However, 3.7 million books on their website don’t have cover images. These product cover images are found on Amazon website instead.

Costco: store info missing

When users search for a specific store location such as “Dallas Texas”, no store info is displayed on top of the website as expected like on other stores.

Allied Electronics: products disappeared after selecting manufacturer on category listing page

When a user navigates through the website’s product categories they can select a specific manufacturer through the result listing filter function. Even though the manufacturer filter selection shows there will be results to be displayed for the selected manufacturer, the selection result from the website displays an error page where no results are found.

My website only has 50 products. What kind of problems can it have?
