The Sellerdeck Responsive Design is both a smart and modern page layout and also detects and responds to whatever device the visitor is using, re-displaying the store content in the appropriate format automatically (see image below). For example, visitors using a desktop PC will see the usual design, but anyone using a smartphone will see the page content laid out in a single column, with larger links and buttons.
Phil Rothwell, Sellerdeck’s marketing director says, “We wanted to find a simple and low cost way for Sellerdeck users to be able to start selling effectively online to all their customers, no matter whether those visitors are in their office, at home, in a coffee shop or on the bus.”
He adds, “Many other E-Commerce solutions offer a completely different set of pages for mobile customers, but this gives you the headache of having two sets of pages and two designs to worry about. The Sellerdeck Responsive Design means you just have one fantastic design and just one set of pages for Google to focus on.”
Rothwell also advises all e-tailers to, “take a close look at your website analytics to see the different devices your visitors are browsing and buying on. This dictates how quickly you need to adapt your site design for mobile users. But there’s no doubt now that the trend towards shopping on the move is an unstoppable one and you may well be missing out on sales already.”
Sellerdeck’s Responsive Design has the following features:
- Automatically adapts your design based on the visitor’s browser screen and resolution
- Customisable to support your own branding, look and feel
- Hides content that doesn’t work on smaller screen sizes
- Flags up phone and email fields in the checkout so handheld devices show the appropriate keyboard
- Tightly integrates with PayPal’s speedy checkout options.
The mobile-friendly design can be implemented via three services:
