I have partnered with Customer Care to deliver online shopping and website evaluations. This enables you to truly get an insight into the customer experience on your site, receiving reliable data from real people.
Let’s evaluate the methodology involved and then define how the overall process works.
Mystery Shoppers For eCommerce Websites
An eCommerce website is essentially a store just like any other, except everything is conducted online. You need to understand from a customer perspective what shopping in your store is actually like.
Real world stores often hire the services of mystery shoppers to visit, make a purchase and evaluate various aspects of the experience. The same can be done for eCommerce stores, where a mystery shopper visits your online store and documents their experience so you have real world, valuable data to work with.
Full reports are provided so you can accurately gauge the true customer experience and their level of satisfaction overall. If any changes need to be made, these will be detailed in the mystery shopper report.
Some things evaluated in the report include:
- How they found your website
- Ease of site navigation
- Making a purchase from your eCommerce store
- How simple the checkout process was
- Delivery times and customer service
Once you’ve received objective reporting on your eCommerce store that we provide, you’ll then be able to understand the level of customer satisfaction and any areas where improvements may be necessary.

Your Website User-Tested By Real People
For your website to be truly user-friendly and error-free, it really needs to be user-tested by real people. We develop a customised program to test the functionality of your website. This process gathers the data necessary to make adjustments and improvements to your website, which in turn will result in higher conversions and more sales.
Some of the functionality that can be tested includes:
- Functionality and website design
- Easy product location
- Shopping Cart functions, including modifying and deleting items
- Postage & shipping options
- Costs and time frames for shipping
- Contact options – live chat, responsiveness to emails
- Total delivery times
- Quality of packaging
- Product returns and time taken to receive credit
How the Process Works
STEP 1: SURVEY DESIGN
We’ll devise a questionnaire specific to your requirements in measuring key indicators for online performance – THIS PROCESS IS FREE OF CHARGE!
The questionnaire, complete with your branding and logos, is uploaded to our platform. A complete evaluation at NO CHARGE to you is then performed to ensure we are capturing the data you want captured.
STEP 2: FINE TUNE
At this point any necessary changes and adjustments can be made.
STEP 3: RECRUIT MYSTERY SHOPPERS – LOCAL, REAL PEOPLE
Mystery shoppers will then be recruited from our database of over 2000 mystery shoppers from Australia and New Zealand to evaluate your eCommerce site and complete the process. The number of shoppers used depends on your specific requirements and budget.
STEP 4: TESTING OF YOUR WEBSITE IS UNDERTAKEN
The mystery shopper will be fully briefed on the instructions, the process gets underway and the shopper returns a complete and detailed evaluation of your site.
All of your site can be tested, or you can specify certain aspects of the site to be tested. For example, the Live Chat function or the checkout process.
STEP 5: REPORT ISSUED
After the process has been completed, the full report will be emailed to you in a PDF. Alternatively, you can access all this information via our platform by logging in with your Username and Password. This will give you instant access to all data, enabling you to determine what’s working and what needs to be improved.
Using an integrated customised dashboard, both you and your designated staff can access this data.
