Study Q170036. What Sells?
Question -
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Hmm... maybe so, but on the Internet it's also worth quite a few more kbytes in transfer speed and 'waiting-to-load' time.

Text description offers speed and simplicity. A clear picture gives you definition and accuracy, but takes time to load. A thumbnail is a very small picture (quick to load), but it is not very clear.

So, when a site's product catalogue pops up, what do you want to see next to each product name?

3876508I like all the kind of products.Daniel AlejandroMexicoM35
3876421If a thumbnail is next to a description then one has to be able to enlarge that picture. I find it very annoying when I cannot see a product from all sides, clearly and big enough. After all in an offline shop one can pick up a product and examine it etc. Hence online one has to be able to see as much as possible prior to committing to a purchase.KarenSwitzerlandF73

3876117From a buy and sell website perspective, I would prefer a full description of the item and a clear picture since information which relates to the real product must be closely identical as much as possible with the website to prevent certain mistakes or misleading.John DavidPhilippinesM23
