This is typical of manufacturer vs. retailer relationships as manufacturers were not used to selling direct to consumers and had to go through retailers, until eCommerce allowed them to do so.

First thing on the homepage you can see that this store sells physical goods such as card decks or magic kits but also digital downloads.
Ellusionist Product Page
What’s noticeable in this store is the length and richness of their product pages. They are not just describing the content of the product. In fact, that comes at the very bottom of the page. Here is the magic recipe of what the team added to their product pages to maximize conversion:
- Big high resolution product image
- 90 money back guarantee
- Number of reviews and Facebook likes
- Customer insight i.e. what you might think and prevent you from buying
- Number of customers who bought the product
- Product emotional benefits: what Ellusionist wants you to think, feel and do i.e. “You’ll never be called boring again”
- Product functional benefit: what you will learn with the kit i.e. learn how to unlock code to any phone
- Who it is for i.e. beginners, no previous experience needed
- Videos of the reaction you will drive with your trick
- Product description i.e. content of the kit but not all as some component need to stay secret
- Monetary benefits i.e. get free drinks with your tricks
But wait there’s more!
- Info about your teacher
- Video of your teacher
- Detailed customer reviews
And when your product page is so long, you need to make your “Buy now” button/ banner sticky so it’s accessible at anytime.
All these efforts would go to waste if visitors abandoned their carts after finally being convinced to purchase a product. So on the cart page, the store offers to checkout with PayPal Express or Amazon Pay. Then if visitors want to pay with credit card, they land on our OneStepCheckout page.
