We're pleased to announce a final batch of enhancements to the Rezdy booking form. Minor improvements were made to the initial steps in the booking process, we've now completed enhancements to the final step: the checkout flow.
The list of improvements on the Checkout Flow includes:
- New Layout
- Dynamic Checkout
- Following Item Summary
- Mobile Device Optimisation
New Layout: Turning Lookers into Bookers
The new layout is cleaner and more compact. Important sections are made clear to the Customer with intelligent input fields. This means faster user input, less errors, greater cognition resulting in higher conversion rates. Keep scrolling to see the rest of the improvements!
Dynamic Checkout: Increase Conversions
Strong data analysis showed a large percentage of Customers were going back to the first step of the booking process just to correct mistakes with quantities and pickups. Your Customers can now do all of this on the checkout page without having to restart the entire process.
Following Item Summary: User Cognition
Customer experience has been improved with the Item Summary, which now follows the user as they complete their purchase. This results in a lighter, more compact booking experience with less need to scroll up and down.
Mobile Devices: Optimisation
The new layout comes with several mobile device improvements. Including a progression bar that follows the Customer as they complete their Order and shows progression as they fill out required fields. Both desktop and mobile versions come with a progression bar, but the mobile version is a lot more prominent.
