I think what we can first look at here is any other options besides your popup. A couple that spring to mine quickly are: 1 - A dismissible warning above the cart - offering full cart scope - "Promotional items are no longer discounted when Urgent Delivery is selected". If this isn't prominent enough a dismissible (or, I guess, timed, but personally I don't ...

I don't think a red logo has a negative impact considering the many iconic red logos. Levi's, Coca Cola, Leica, Red Cross, Lego, Canon, Virgin, Mitsubishi... Red is the color of blood, and because of this it has historically been associated with sacrifice, danger and courage. Modern surveys in the United States and Europe show red is the color most commonly ...

I would recommend using positive UI feedback to tell the user where dropping is allowed. For any specific selection, there are usually one or two regions which are valid drop targets. Highlight those and allow other areas to fade into the background. Here's an example from Atlassian Jira: Transitioning an Issue As soon as the user begins dragging the ...

In addition to the suggestions offered by TJH, I would suggest another approach: blink the "discount" cell background in a different color when the value changes because of some (intuitively unrelated) other action taken by the user, such as selecting express delivery, to draw their attention to it in a non-intrusive way. You could also add a message bar ...

Things, you are talking about can be usually solved by cookie profiling, tracking and analytics. But thats not an easy thing to do, so the best way would be to buy some third-party applications for such tracking. For example Google can do it, becouse of gathering lots of different information about the user from lots of it services and account connections. ...

You should use points. Here's why: If you're interested in gamification, then points will give the user immediate feedback, which is important. Gaining a level might take too long for the user to bother, but gaining points, even small amounts, works quickly, easily, and gives immediate positive feedback. With gaining levels, it might take too long to ...

Yes absolutely. Every action a user takes should interrupt all other activities for several reasons: Data load. Loading data is (often) costly and we want to use as little as possible running a mobila app. Threading should be avoided. Expectations. User expect a mobile app to respond quickly at the time they do something. If you're ever used a search ...

You can use below button for your Non-signed up users As soon as user mouse over on the button Show the Little Signup Form - Followed by the Follow Button On Follow Click - SIGNUP THE USER + TRIGGER THE FOLLOW ACTION Hope this helps. BTW We a/b tested this approach. You'll see a way high conversion rate in this. Users love Quick Signups (They ...

Basically the number of choices given to the users should not be too many. How much depends on what the product is and what are the suggested products. Since, here its food, the lesser number of choices the more likely that people would actually make a choice. Sheena Iyengars famous jam choice experiment talks about choice overload. " At a luxury food ...

Firstly, if you are interested in mouse technology and how it works this article does a great job of it: An Overview of Mouse Technology To answer the first question, cpi (the correct term, but often confused with dpi) is pushed higher on mice for a number of reasons, but the tricky part is balancing out the different variables so that errors don't occur, ...

On our e-commerce site, we use RED for price drop because red stands out and grabs the user's attention. Also red is commonly associated with price drop; for example, in US stock, red means price drop and green means price increase. Also, major e-commerce sites like Amazon and Zappos uses RED to indicate price drop so assume they spend millions on UX and ...

You could improve user interface but because you are asking for why user leave your site within few minutes is because, your site is not offering them anything at all other then a timer. You need to add some content which will attract users to your site again and again...

You need to tell the user what to do. Right now it simply looks like a statement: YOUR EYES NEED REST Every twenty minutes Look at something at least twenty feet away For at least twenty seconds The most important part is hidden in the bottom right of my screen: Next eye-rest in: 03:53 Keep this web-app + your sound open. It will ...

It's possible to reshuffle the design with every added feature, but it's inefficient, takes up a lot of time, and occupies your thoughts with individual elements. A better alternative is to refactor once the strain of your current design becomes apparent, as then you get to look at everything at once, giving you a lot better picture of where things should ...

Honestly, I think it depends on whether or not a price drop is a good thing. While under the assumption that a price drop is a good thing (as in the case of a store's products going on sale), perhaps green is more appealing to the customer. On the other hand, red could be more appropriate if the action is bad. Using the example from Chairman Meow, a ...

There are two studies suggesting you are correct. This one and this one. From the first study: " this raises the question of whether, for non-experimental purposes, there is any benefit beyond marketing for the 5700 dpi mouse we used." From the second study: "Though other reasons may prevail, the quest for mouse resolutions above 10000 CPI does not seem ...

For a music-only site, I can't really think of a reason a user would require a mute button. As you said, if a user wanted the music to stop, they would pause, as opposed to having silent music playing in the background. However, if you were to include some kind of visualization or video to accompany the music, then there might be a case you would want a ...

I also agree that gender neutrality is very important with a default avatar, and breaking away from that default avatar is important. However since the goal of the avatar is also to help identify who the person is in a list, having variety can be important, and as designers we may have to accept the fact users may not upload their photos (so we may as well ...

I would link you to a few pages about Color Psychology. The color should somehow reflect the brand or feelings that brand evokes. Red color is always very intense and it evokes strong emotions (coca cola and its happy american dream with all those families and childrens), love and rebels (Rolling Stones logo). It also evokes strength (for example Red Bull) ...

People can remember on average between 6 and 9 things at a given time. I think this is one of the reasons why most website like Amazon and Ebay show a number of suggestions that is fairly close to this figure. You don't want to overload your user with suggestions.

Using some conditional styling in your CSS you could add icons to the ends of links inline with the content that would look for certain URL's or kinds of links for instance: a[href^="mailto"]:hover:after{ content: "\f003" attr(title); font-family: FontAwesome; font-style: normal !important; font-weight: inherit !important; ...

I'm not sure why, but this is one of the only meaningful discussions I can find for this. My take on this is that the app-centric approach is a symptom of efforts to lock users into a company's ecosystem. The app-centric framework makes it difficult to take content to a different platform, therby
