Yoox – Online Shop Review
Yoox was founded by Federico Marchetti in 2000 and has grown into a network of e-commerce, exclusively serving more than 100 countries.
Tasteful, colorful and fun, the Yoox website glows with yellow, blue and green hues within a subtle white and gray background. Images appear strong, with the advertorial depictions of the store’s feature sections. The straightforward navigation leads customers to shop within 5 main categories: Women, Men, Kids, Design and Art. A concealed search box is just beside the main links.
Customers can browse through the Yoox store by using different categories, designers and other groupings, including new arrivals, sale and special edition. Product galleries feature the items floating in a clear backdrop. Hovering on the images allows the user to take a glimpse into the product’s alternate angle. A wide number of items are shown on each gallery, but the website manages to load swiftly and switches to a responsive view on a mobile browser.
On visiting a Yoox product page, users can view the item closely by using the zoom feature. A color and sizing option is available for selection at the right side of the image. Product info and delivery information are printed in small fonts and are shown in the tab underneath the purchase button. Similar items are displayed in an array for further shopping and/or comparison.
Being a retailer of international brands, Yoox offers an abundance of different commodities with different prices. Here, one can find an overflow of clothing, bags, accessories, toys and home ware, each produced by international lifestyle labels. The Yoox Price is the store’s special feature, which is equal to more or less half of the designer’s original price for the item.
Yoox ships worldwide. For express delivery, a flat-rate payment of US$26 is required. The online platform also calculates potential taxes and duties for the order as indicated by country.
