What is product quickview?

Product Quickview is not a strange feature for both sellers and buyers. It is a landing page that allows your customers to have an overview of the products without going to the details page. This feature makes it possible for customers to view product summaries in a cascading or pop-up window.

Why are so many famous brands choose to use Product Quickview? Let's see what features it brings!

1. View multiple images in a quick view popup 

You can allow customers to view an image gallery with multiple images in a quick view popup without having to visit a product page.

2. Enlarge product image 

The quick view pop-up supports image zooming, customers just need to point the mouse, the image will be zoomed in automatically so customers can see close-up versions of the product. This helps customers not need to go to the product's detail page and still be able to choose the product they need.

3. Increase average order value 

When using Quickview Product, customers will see the necessary content not only of one product but also many other products. They will easily be attracted and click on more products than they originally intended. This can increase average order value by keeping customers on the product board page throughout the buying process, encouraging them to purchase more products

4. Show more product information and improve performance 

You can display more product information, such as a short description, in a quick view popup without taking customers to individual product pages.

Furthermore, you can improve performance by choosing Product Quickview over the add to cart column. Your sales page only needs to load the right product customers are looking for, instead of loading a long product table.

3 common problems with Quick View to avoid

1. Quickview but not really “fast”

With Quick View open, customers can preview the selected item without leaving the product listing page. However, there are many Quickview pages that provide too much information, causing customers to mistake this as a product page

Fix: You should only put a sufficient amount of information on the Quickview overlays. Furthermore, when designing the Quick View overlay, you should leave enough room for the product list to be clearly visible and easy to tap when the user wants to close Quick View.

2. Quickview is placed in the wrong place:

The Quickview button needs to be placed in the right position so that customers do not confuse it with the product detail button. Things can get worse if customers really think of Quickview as a product detail page. They may assume there is a lack of product information on your site and decide to leave.

Fix: You should have a Quickview button at the top or bottom of the list item element or in the corner of the thumbnail and show the element only on hover. This button can be wrapped in an eye-catching icon instead of an icon of the same size as the “View Details” button.

3. Customer cannot turn off Quickview

Typically, online stores will design several different ways for users to exit the Quickview overlay, for example, clicking the Close button (x) or Back button, tapping the product listing. However, many websites do not allow them to do that.

Fix: To avoid misunderstandings, we recommend using the Close button (x) instead of the “Back” button. Also, you can allow customer to exit the Quickview overlay by clicking on the product listing in the background
