Retail Web Design - Brisbane & Gold Coast
Retail Web design is a specialist niche within the Web design industry. Retail web design involves a higher degree of user interface design knowledge to maximise sales effectiveness.
There are three major streams of retail web design; vendor retail, department retail and portal retail. Vendor retail websites are the equivalent of a retail shop. Department retail websites are the equivalent of Myers or David Jones. Portal retail sites are the equivalent of shopping centers.
|Retail Type||Online Examples||Bricks & Mortar Examples|
|Vendor||VideoPro, Quantronics||JB HiFi, Dick Smith|
|Department||Deals Direct, Only Online||Myers & David Jones|
|Portal||Yahoo, NineMSN||Westfield shopping centres|
Each type of retail web design has different characteristics. The resulting store-fronts of each type present a distinct interface to online shoppers. For example, vendor store-fronts are built for finding products very easily. On the other hand, portal websites are designed to expose the shopper to many other products and services before they find what they want in order to maximise sales that are profitable for the portal.
