  • Generally positive user experience
  • Consistent inventory control
  • Policy of returns and refunds
  • Possibility of both online and in-store shopping
  • Compatibility of a product with different browsers and devices

User experience is not just how a user reacts on fonts and button colors. It also includes checking for the presence of dead-end processes and confusing factors. It is needless to say that unpleasant bottlenecks like these should be eliminated as early as possible.
