A little while ago we mentioned we’re running small tests on the look and feel of Envato Market. So far these have been tests around button colors, the checkout process and what happens when you click buttons.
We’re about to start a series of tests to the search and category pages which will help us understand customer behavior better. Currently our category pages look just like search pages, and we think they could be better. Also, we think we could do a better job of displaying and helping customers find items on both the search and category pages.
Over the next few months you may notice changes to the layout of search results, sort order, new panels, and other design changes to the search and category pages. Using data from the tests, we will assess both customer and author impact. This means you may notice small changes from time to time that you can see and others can’t, and those changes may or may not become permanent. We can’t announce when these tests will take place or help you get into them, as doing so could affect the results.
These tests are really important for us to ensure we’re looking at actual customer behavior and have quality data to help us improve.
