I am in the process of improving an existing eCommerce site design. The client has asked that we highlight the best selling categories.
Currently all the categories are under the heading Categories and the customer can browse individual categories via the mega menu.
The client wants to split Categories into four different headings: e.g. category 1, category 2, category 3 and category 4.
There are few options:
- Add new categories, decrease the width of search bar and compromise on search bar visibility.
- Display links and search bar in different rows, e.g. links in first row and search in second row.
- Move search bar next to logo.
Which way is the best and why? Any alternate approach?
