Case Study: e-commerce website Amwaj
Hello guys! long time no see…
This week, I want to share my case study for project 2, which I had worked on for the last two weeks. I worked on this project with my team members Maria Aljaroudi, Atheer Alateeq, and Rawan Almahfouz. Moreover, This is a group project for the UX/UI immersive course at Misk Academy. It was a long two weeks but we did it at the end….
Noon’s website was our major brand, and from this, we created our website Amwaj.
I will tell you briefly about Noon brand and some of their services, which they provide. Noon is a local Saudi brand, and many users were not familiar with Noon in the beginning. However, their brand started to expand among a variety of people.
- After the noon popularity expands, it starts to compete famous brands like SheIn, Aliexpress, ASOS, fordeal, Savvi, Namshi, and jolly chic, and these brands are our competetiors.
Regarding their shipping policy:
- If your order contains only express items, free shipping fees will applied hen the cart total is 200SR or above.
- If your order includes only market items, shipping fees of 12 SAR will be applied to the market items per seller.
- If your order includes market items and express items, shipping fees of 12 SAR will be applied to the market items per seller.
- If your order includes bulky items, shipping fees will be applied.
We want to understand our users deeply, so we asked the main research and interview questions:
Our interview and survey goal was:
- Reaching out to participants and know their feelings about noon beach products and online websites.
- Have an understanding of participants’ needs, struggles, and experiences regarding online shopping websites.
We wanted to understand their frustration about some websites, their best shopping experience, and some features that attract them to visit the website. We interviewed acceptable numbers of participants.
Survey insights :
- 61.5 % order monthly from online shopping websites
- 61.5 % give 6–8 out of 10 as a rate of their trust about online shipping websites
- 46.6 % choose Apple Pay as their favorite pay method
To create a good website, we need to understand our competitors. We created C&C analysis, SWOT, positioning marketing, leaf diagram, and heuristic evaluation.
Key insights of C&C:
Asos was our main competition and we want to reach their features level and added more features to create our website.
On the other hand, savvi website was a great example of having chart board , and well organized products.

Also, Savvi website provided clear content, good customer service support, and well organized products.
For the other websites, they need to label ,organize products according to their categories, and avoid stuffed the home page with irrelevant categories of products. Also, they need to focus on providing high quality photos, and put the ads in a separate category.
