Creating Product Comparison table

A comparison is a usual process people do during purchasing goods. They want to consider all the parameters to make the best choice. It can be:

  • Price
  • Features
  • Shipping conditions, etc.

And, to tell the truth, the more expensive the product is the more time customers waste to learn more about it. One of the great examples of Comparison Table is on Amazon. Why? Here are some important factors:

  • It has a product picture
  • There are specific characteristics like screen, processor, memory, so on
  • It has a rating from users, price
  • There is a CTA (call to action) button.
