Ecommerce Websites: 100+ Inspiring Examples

Last Updated April 2 2024

Written By Steve Benjamins

This is a massive list of the best ecommerce websites in 2024.

You’ll find a range of styles on this list — everything from minimalist designs to bright and busy designs are included.

But every single store I’ve included has one thing in common: their design moves customers to make a purchase.

I hope you find this inspiring — let’s get started!

Tip: Use ← and → arrow keys to browse.

Screenshot of Allbirds, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Allbirds sells men’s, women’s, and kids’ super comfy casual shoes. They are made with natural materials like wool and offer a unique style choice.

The ecommerce site features excellent copy, really good images, and a natural flow for potential buyers. Plus, everything is optimized for conversion rates — for example, notice the navigation bar: each link is to a commercial page; the navigation to non-commercial pages like the contact or about page is placed in the footer.

They also have great remarketing in-store: Whenever a visitor visits a product page but doesn’t buy the product, they are shown those products under “Take Another Look” right at the top of the homepage (whether the visitor is logged in or not).

Screenshot of Supernatural, from the ecommerce websites collection.

The Supernatural brand features an exciting, plant-based way to get creative in the kitchen. All of their powder products and recipes are vibrant in color, better for you, and fun to use in the kitchen!

The no-copy, no-CTA hero section gives the website a clean look. And the yellow-based color scheme matches with their packaging and ad & social media post colors, giving it consistent branding.

Their shop section has a lot of negative space, product image thumbnails that change on hover, and minimal captions. The product description copy is straightforward and well-structured, and each product has associated customer reviews at the bottom that add social proof.

Screenshot of Minna, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Minna is an organic tea company selling many different tea flavors in individual cans or a variety packs. Their teas are free of the excessive sugar you’ll find in most teas yet still taste light and delicious.

The full-sized header image, the white space throughout the homepage, the CSS parallax scrolling effect, and the appropriate colorful sections…all are examples of modern-day web design trends. Also, minor details like adding nutritional facts and relevant certificates near the “Order Online” CTAs elevate the visitors’ trust in the brand.

Note : The Minna website is more like a landing page for branding. The CTAs take potential buyers to their Amazon listings.

One minor error you should avoid: The navigation text isn’t contrasting enough to the background image, so the visitors will struggle to see the “Shop Tea” link.

Screenshot of Flow, from the ecommerce websites collection.

This is an outstanding example of using mixing photography and design. The homepage photo places the product front and center and uses green leaves to build a sense of brand. But here is what’s great: the photo doesn’t sacrifice usability at all. The navigation is still very obvious and the headline doesn’t run into the subject of the photo at all.

Screenshot of Stuff, from the ecommerce websites collection.

The design is very clean. Everything feels tight and orderly.

The typography is light and readable. Text is never too small. Occasional pops of yellow are used to call attention to buttons.

Overall, this is minimalism done right! And what’s great is it reflects the online store’s brand. They design simple and timeless products — and the website reflects this value!

Screenshot of Melula, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Melula is a children’s fashion line from Denmark with a focus on shoes. Their collections are colorful and unique and aim to reflect the fun and imagination of a child.

They show (not tell) their colorfulness and playfulness with their minimal website. For example, the website homepage has a negligible amount of text, only a couple of menu items, and one clear CTA, “Visit our shop.” Apart from that, the page is filled with images that show the personality of the Melula brand.

Their Shop page, like the homepage, is also minimal:

Overall, Melula’s is an excellent design inspiration if you want to employ minimalism for your ecommerce store.

Screenshot of Soilboy, from the ecommerce websites collection.

The Soilboy company is obsessed with plants, the benefits of owning them, and the care they require. Those with a green thumb will love the in-depth information they provide and the plants available for purchase from the website.

Screenshot of Jones Bar-B-Q, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Inspired by and located in Kansas City, Jones Bar-B-Q is famous for its delicious flavors. The restaurant started back in 1970 and has since grown to produce sauces that can be purchased online from anywhere in the world.

For the website, they have chosen a red-based color palette for branding, so the visitors instantly connect them with something hot or exciting.

From a hierarchical viewpoint, they have an image of the freshly-made hot sauce and a big and bold text⁠ that reads “SAUCE MADE WITH LOVE IN KANSAS CITY⁠” at the top. Then, there’s a clear navigation bar (with a CTA to their online shop) and a separate highlighted call-to-action button, “Shop Sauces.”

In short, the hierarchy leads to their store. Their store is a typical three-column store made with the Squarespace ecommerce platform.

Screenshot of Feastables, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Feastables is a chocolate bar brand created by MrBeast - one of the most popular and influential YouTubers.

Its website landing page with a semi-flat design uses the classic blue and pink MrBeast color scheme. It also has all the MrBeast elements sprinkled throughout the website - massive giveaways, philanthropy, an image of Jimmy aka MrBeast, quirky reviews from Chandler and other team members, etc.

Other than the whole MrBeast branding and modern web design, the website has snappy and easy navigation, accessibility settings, a live chat/chatbot, social media buttons, logical structure, and perfectly placed CTAs.

From a marketing-on-the-site viewpoint, they use popups and interactive spin-to-win wheels to collect emails for email marketing, they have a chatbot to increase conversion rates, and they have put average reviews at the top of each product page to give visitors social proof, etc.

Screenshot of ESNTLS, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Super minimalist design — lots of whitespace and room for bold photography.

The design reflects the clothes they sell: high-quality, basic essentials.

Screenshot of Oura , from the ecommerce websites collection.

Oura is a special ring that you wear on your finger similar to a fit bit that tracks fitness, sleep and overall wellness levels. It has a body temperature monitor that assists in analyzing your levels all day and while you sleep.

Screenshot of Dropps, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Dropps sells eco-friendly detergents, softeners, dishcloths, and other laundry and kitchen products through their Shopify store.

Their website follows the template of a typical modern-day ecommerce website: full-size header image, good copy, good navigation, USPs mentioned right at the top, and minimal and relevantly-placed animations. I particularly liked the website hero image ⁠— the image itself says a lot about their products.

The Shop page displays products in one column, one below the other. Each product is sort of a separate section with mini-descriptions of the features of the product and a CTA that leads to the product page.

Screenshot of West Bourne, from the ecommerce websites collection.

The homepage features a fast-moving slideshow (seriously — a new photo slides in every second) that goes between photos of women, avocado oil bottles and avocado trees. It gives a good, quick impression of who might be interested in this brand.

Screenshot of Oishii, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Oishii is a Japanese-based company featuring the Omakase Berry. The company prides itself on quality over quantity berry farming available at its locations in New York, LA, and New Jersey.

On their website, they use a fast-loading, high-quality, full-size background video for the hero section. The video showcases the freshness and the quality of the berry, which demands the visitor to react: ‘Nice! I want that!’. And as soon as you feel “I want that,” the next thing you’ll see is the CTA to their online shop.

Screenshot of Babocush, from the ecommerce websites collection.

If I took away the image, could you guess what the target audience of this website is? I’ll bet you could.

It’s light typography and muted colors immediately suggest that this is a children’s brand (and the target audience is parents).

Screenshot of Mingua Beef Jerky, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Even on your first impression, you’ll immediately know who this product is for.

Both the photo and the text are telling you this is beef jerky for adventurers! It’s a great example of storytelling.

Screenshot of Soko Glam, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Soko Glam sells Korean beauty products for skin, hair, and body. You can find just about anything from body washes to makeup here at reasonable price points. This company is run by Charlotte Cho, and she loves to encourage others to think about beauty from a new perspective.

Screenshot of MNML, from the ecommerce websites collection.

MNML is a men’s fashion line featuring modern and sleek styles with a clean-cut finish. Based in LA, they sell clothing, outerwear, and accessories with a modern twist.

Screenshot of Maple Street Biscuits, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Here’s a great example of using bright, bold colors. You’ll often see food-related online stores use bright, bold colors — especially for snacks, condiments and drinks.

Screenshot of Ocelot Chocolate, from the ecommerce websites collection.

In 2013, newlyweds Matt and Ish started the company Ocelot Chocolate right from their apartment. Their passion for organic, quality chocolate, combined with their design skills, has helped their company flourish, reaching customers worldwide.

Screenshot of Grind, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Grind is a coffee subscription service. Customers pay for monthly deliveries of coffee pods. It’s good example of how to design an ecommerce website for a subscription product.

Screenshot of Malco, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Malco sells wooden names that you might hang in a baby’s nursery. They even include an interactive name-designer to create custom wooden names.

The website color palette is similar to a color palette you might decorate a baby’s nursery in: soft colors and pastels. There are no bright colors used. This immediately signals that the target audience is parents.

It’s a good example of an ecommerce site that communicates a brand through their colors.

Screenshot of Kith, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Kith is a unique company that was established in 2011—offering clothing, footwear, and more for men, women, and kids. They also have retail locations that offer build your own treats with ice cream and candy!

Screenshot of Little Giants, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Screenshot of Good Beer Hunting, from the ecommerce websites collection.

This is the site for all things beer-related. From apparel to artwork, you can find unique pieces focusing on beer. You can also listen to podcasts and find events to be a part of if you love an ice-cold beer!

Screenshot of Prevail Boxing, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Prevail Boxing is located in LA. They offer super sweat boxing sessions for different fitness levels. You can schedule classes, view pricing info, and purchase gear from the gym as well.

Screenshot of R.E.D.D., from the ecommerce websites collection.

Selling snacks online can be difficult. Customers want to see and touch food. This is why most food websites use bright, bold colors — they are trying to give you a sense of the food!

Screenshot of Henry & Smith, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Chinos galore for the modern man. They offer chinos in several different cuts and price points, so you’re sure to find the perfect pair for him. Their fabric usage focuses on superior comfort and functionality.

Screenshot of Love Billy!, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Love Billy sells clothing, jewelry, stickers, and more. In their jewelry lineup, they can give you a permanent bracelet showing commitment to the ones you love, with the option of cutting it off at some point, of course. Less intimidating than a tattoo!

Screenshot of Contra, from the ecommerce websites collection.

I really like this bold minimalist design but I do have one concern: could having some much text uppercased make reading and navigating a bit tiring?

Screenshot of 100% Pure, from the ecommerce websites collection.

You can figure out this beauty company as it says it all in the name. Super cool skincare products that find their color from natural fruits and are infused with other powerhouses like green tea.

This clean, D2C website focuses on just one thing: Sales! The first three sections of the website focus on selling: 1. The hero section shows the best offers. 2. Below, they have a “Most reviewed” section that showcases best-sellers. 3. Next, they have CTAs for their collections. And sections below that build social proof and uplift their brand⁠—something that compliments the goal of the ecommerce site well.

Besides focusing on the goal, it also follows the modern website design aesthetics elements. For example, it uses a great font, a suitable color palette, high-quality product photos, a hover-to-reveal-further navigation bar, and more.

Screenshot of Casey Neistat Apparel, from the ecommerce websites collection.

A minimalist site design like this works best when you have eye-catching product photography!

Screenshot of The Obove, from the ecommerce websites collection.

There are exceptions to every rule — and this online store for a music artist is a good example of that. Instead of having the navigation at the top of the website, they’ve moved it to the bottom of the website. This is a more unusual placement for navigation but it possible suits the surreal tone of the artists work.

Screenshot of Tonal, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Tonal is endorsed by Lebron James — so they put Lebron front and center on the homepage. A good example of leading with your brand story.

Screenshot of AKA, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Here’s a minimalist ecommerce website example.

Most of the website is a simple white background with black text — punctuated by sections with a very light grey background.

Screenshot of Mile-X Equipment, from the ecommerce websites collection.

The site’s layout is user-friendly, showcasing their products with clear images and detailed descriptions, enhancing the shopping experience.

Screenshot of Tee Links, from the ecommerce websites collection.

A decent example of an online store for travel. Though what’s with the watermarked “G” on the homepage image?

Screenshot of Bushwick Tea, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Here’s an example of a minimalist design — but I’m a little concerned that the navigation is too subtle and might be missed by some visitors.

Screenshot of Lost & Found, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Asolid example of an online store for apparel. Clean navigation, big bold photos and solid branding.

Screenshot of BLANK, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Here’s a sunglasses brand that doesn’t put their sungalsses front and center — instead they have user-generated content (photos from actual customers). It’s an interesting approach to put testimonials front and center!

Screenshot of Rocks for the Spirt, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Here’s a simple design — the homepage is simply a grid catalogue of the products. You can sort or filter them but it’s all there. Nice example of minimalism.

Screenshot of Oskar Gydell, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Oskar Gydell designs necklaces and bracelets in simple and casual pieces. Although casual, they are high quality and can endure daily wear while maintaining their appeal and beauty.

Screenshot of Brooklyn Grange, from the ecommerce websites collection.

To me, this design is communicating a brand that is artsy and grungy. They are using a monospace font which is typically used in computer code — an interesting choice for an online store.

Screenshot of Dark Horse Coffee Roasters, from the ecommerce websites collection.

This an example of a gritty, bold design. The typography is all capitalized which makes the design feel loud and impactful. They also use a felt marker font throughout the site that gives it a DIY feel.

Screenshot of Strange Daze, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Another example of a simple, minimalist storefront. Strange Daze just has a two-column grid of products you can buy.

Screenshot of Ashley Chloe, from the ecommerce websites collection.

Ashley Chloe sells products that have a seamless merge between technology and fashion. They create sleek pieces like earbuds that won’t throw your entire outfit off while in use and are additionally comfortable.

For the dirt bike fanatics. A huge range of products is available here from helmets to replacement parts. The categorizing makes what you need easy to find, with labels like “street” or “race”, as options. From the inside out, they have everything you may need in your riding adventures.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I create an ecommerce website?

To build your online store, follow these steps:

  1. Clarify your goals
  2. Decide on how you’ll make your store. We recommend you use Squarespace for smaller stores or Shopify for stores of any size.
  3. Choose a relevant template from whatever platform you choose. And edit it as per your need.
  4. Get the domain name for your store, and publish the website.

What kind of payment methods should I offer?

E-commerce websites should offer a variety of payment methods. For example, Apple Pay should be available on iPhone mobile devices — but wouldn't make sense on an Android phone. Website builders such as Shopify offer lots of features around multiple payment method support.

What is best ecommerce website builder?

Shopify is the best ecommerce website builder. It includes everything you fundamentally need to build a successful ecommerce business. For everything else, there's the Shopify app store, where you can find 7000+ extensions to add all the functionalities you need to build your ideal store.

What about WooCommerce/WordPress?

WooCommerce is also a solid platform for ecommerce, but you'll need some technical knowledge to build your ideal store + managing it is harder than ecommerce builders like Shopify.

What makes an ecommerce website design good?

For me, great ecommerce designs boil down to two critical elements: brand and usability.

  • A brand is communicated through the typography, product photos, colors and web design. They should all work together to give customers an immediate intuition what this brand represents. 75% of consumers judge a company’s credibility based on the website design so it’s critical to get this right.
  • Usability means the store is clear and user-friendly. It shouldn’t be difficult to browse product pages or find important product details. The checkout process should simple and clear. And it shouldn’t ask for more information than necessary.
