Paperchase

Paperchase is the UK’s no1 retailer for exciting and innovative stationery, greetings cards and gifts, with over 100 outlets and concessions in House of Fraser, Waterstones and Harrods.

Head of Ecommerce Adrian Spence said, “We work hard to attract visitors so we have to maximise their spend and make sure they have a positive buying experience.”

Much of the merchandise is exclusive to Paperchase, and the company constantly launches new collections. “It is important that our customers can find what they are looking for and make their purchase quickly and easily” explained Adrian.

What we did

We found the weak areas

AWA conducted intensive research and analysis to find out where improvements could be made. Four ‘hot’ areas were identified as being ripe for improvement.

  • Product page
  • Basket page
  • Promotions
  • Mobile devices

We improved product details

Several new web pages were designed to take advantage of the opportunities discovered. Each one was split tested with half of all visitors to the website seeing the old page and half seeing the new page. No visitor was aware they were in a test.
