Etsy Discovers That Showing Price Ranges Might Be Inferior

Perhaps this little and rejected a/b test by Etsy might teach us something about price formatting. Sometime in August of 2022 I noticed that some of Etsy's product pages showed price ranges. In other words, prices were showing both low and high end prices for products with customizable options. View Leak

Etsy A/B Tests And Implements Required Field Labels

Here is a very tiny a/b test from Etsy - the marking of two product personalization fields as required using red asterisks. If I had to guess, I'd expect the effect on checkouts was probably very small if any (based on the pattern data so far). View Leak

Airbnb Retests The Infamous Infinite Scroll

I believe Airbnb just a/b tested infinite scrolling and rolled it out. Sometime this year they evolved their homepage to include specific property listings. As  these property tiles appeared, a month ago I also managed to capture a screenshot of two versions of their homepage: one with 40 results per page that would load more listings with a "Show More" button; and another version with an endless or infinite scroll.  View Leak

Etsy Runs An A/B Test Suggesting That Less Isn't Necessarily More

This interesting experiment was discovered a month ago on Etsy's product listing screens. In a nutshell, more traditional and elaborate product tiles was aggressively shortened by removing a lot of information such as product names and customer reviews. This had the additional effect of shortening the tested listing pages. One more later, the experiment looks like it was rejected - hinting that less is not always more. :) View Leak

Amazon Discovers A Better Product Option Selector In This A/B Test

Amazon has been experimenting with different formatting of product choice selections. Think of books being customized as hardcover, audio or paperback. Think of product quantities and colors. I've been observing Amazon run a sequence of such similar tests over the last few months and here is one such experiment with at least 3 properties that now have been implemented - hinting at higher optimality.

Bol A/B Tested A More Padded Button

Last year I captured this button experiment from Bol (a leading online retailer in the Netherlands). They tested a smaller button with less padding against a slightly more bloated one. It's now clear that the variation was rolled out completely - consistent with the bigger form fields and buttons pattern. View Leak
