Pay Attention to the Big Event

If your e-commerce site is having a flash sale or is launching a new product, expect that there will be isolated, increased traffic events. Test specific web pages and the overall lifecycle, to make sure each web page a shopper goes to – from the item page to the checkout – is able to field increased traffic. Lifestyle apparel brand Stance recently had a huge event – the launch of a sock line custom-designed by Rihanna – and used event testing to help 10,000 simultaneous shoppers per second have a positive, non-disruptive shopping experience. Knowing the problem areas before shoppers arrived let the sale go smoothly, with not one customer experiencing website downtime.

Believe it or not, the holidays are almost upon us, which means that the holiday shopping season is also here. With the majority of holiday shopping now taking place online – last year's online gift buying increased 7 percent - shoppers hold the power for whether or not your website has a successful holiday season. The best thing to do to ensure your e-commerce site is ready for the holiday shopping season is to test website performance automatically and frequently. In this slideshow, BlazeMeter’s Michael Sage has identified five performance testing tips that will help you meet the holiday rush.
