Ecommerce websites have become the future of shopping. It is more convenient for items to arrive at your door than standing in long lines to buy items. More brick and mortar stores are closing due to the power of online shopping. There are many websites competing for customers. If your website fails to present a user-friendly experience then you’re missing out on sales. An attractive website that is mobile optimized is the key to having online success.

Marks & Spencer is a major British multinational retailer located in London. This website offers a range of great filters, but our favorite is the rating system. This is a filter that many retailers don’t use on their websites. Potential customers like to view reviews when they are unsure of which products to purchase. Smart filtering makes the user experience helpful by narrowing down their product search. Filters can serve as search engines for products.
