SNIPES’ primary focus was on reducing return rates relating specifically to shoes. The wide range of brands carried by SNIPES had long posed a challenge in terms of providing consistent sizing guidance to shoppers. SNIPES was also keen to increase overall conversions and provide a boost to shopper confidence via improved user experience around sizing.
“We were looking for a solution that could reduce size sampling while protecting growth - Fit Finder delivered on both counts. In particular, Fit Finder’s role in reducing footwear returns helped us tackle a core business concern. Its intuitive UI has also been a huge hit with shoppers.”
A typically smooth platform integration saw Fit Finder quickly implemented on SNIPES’ primary German site with no negative impact on either internal IT resources or page performance metrics such as loading time.
The aim of the A/B test was to measure the overall business impact of Fit Finder’s presence on the site. During the test period, all site traffic was divided into two funnels: one group with Fit Finder enabled, and a second group who saw a generic “size help” button leading to a static size chart
Impact was then tracked for all traffic, rather than just for those who sought size advice in either funnel.
The two-month test period on snipes.de resulted in a 3% increase in conversion rate for shoppers in the Fit Finder funnel. This group also showed a steady 2% decrease in return rates and an impressive 8% decrease in size sampling for footwear sales.
