Today there are a lot of different choices, and product types. You can filter by color, size, materials, and other features. It is very easy to get lost in a wide range of available options. So, the comparison process is one of the most important activities users perform during purchasing. To simplify this, you can design a comparison table putting all the crucial item’s attributes in one place. As such, users can quickly get an overview of your offerings at a glance.

When you need a comparison pricing table?

Comparison pricing table is a great way to illustrate all the product’s advantages and disadvantages. It is well-suited not only for goods in e-commerce but also for:

  • Services
  • Membership levels
  • Software packages
  • Tuition rates.

Pricing tables are the most used for “large” purchases when people tend to doubt about their decision. In fact, when customers do not know which product to choose they are likely to end up not buying altogether. Such a phenomenon is called choice paralysis. So, to avoid these deadlock situations, retailers create comparison tables.
