Merchandising quick guide

Merchandising definition

Online merchandising involves a range of techniques to increase revenue per visitor from new buyers and existing customers by presenting the most relevant products and offers to help the purchase decision.

This post from Siobhan McMullan gives some common ecommerce trading examples across category, product pages and navigation from different e-retail brands.  It includes examples of giving the customer the opportunity to choose the best way to select their product; selecting based on trends, narrowing down the products they're reviewing or choosing the best add-on products.
