I have an add to cart button on my products page, and I am trying to decide if it is better to have an icon or not.

current button with icon

This is what my current button looks like, but I see companies like Walmart just have text no icons. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is better for conversion. I thought the icon would help attract people's eyes to it better, and immediately understand what the button would do, before they even read the text.

It's hard to say if an icon will increase conversions! It highly depends on the audience, the site, and how/when someone sees the button. Even a case study from another company won't be very helpful because it will only tell you what worked for them.

Try a Simple A/B Test

  • A: Product page with "add to cart" button (no icon)
  • B: Product page with "add to cart" button (icon)

Good luck!
