This approach is not limited to product presentation alone, but also includes visual elements throughout the entire purchasing process, from website navigation to the checkout process. This involves a careful selection of high quality images, demonstration videos, explanatory graphics and intuitive page layouts that facilitate the customer’s search and purchase decisions.

E-commerce has experienced exponential growth. in recent decades, and its importance in the global economy is undeniable. This growth has been driven largely by the expansion of the Internet, the convenience of online shopping and, more recently, by the COVID-19 pandemic, which further accelerated the adoption of e-commerce. Spain has almost 25M online shoppers out of an internet population of 31.7M, as IAB points out in its 2022 report.

Visual Ecommerce plays a key role in this boom. Online consumers are becoming increasingly demanding and visual, and they expect shopping experiences that resemble the experience in a physical shop.
