While I am at discussing the usefulness of adding some memory to e-commerce sites, I thought I might as well take a stab at creating some wireframes on how the feature should be implemented. (The first two sketches were created using Penultimate on my iPad while the low fidelity wireframe was created with Mockingbird.
The first sketch is a suggested generic layout for a e-commerce site. Typically most e-commerce sites display the best selling or new addition sections right at the top. Without exception, even if the current user is logged in and the site has information about the user. Ideally (caveat this is my interpretation and obviously must be tested before being accepted in practice) the sections that make most sense to the user, the personalized sections on recommendations and user specific activity. This is what I have attempted to do here.
This is the sketch for the specific section in question here. Mostly self-explanatory so I will save myself some typing :) And if it is self-explanatory then I suppose the design works as well!
And finally the low fidelity wireframe built with Mockingbird.
How does this look?
