Uncovering the effectiveness of defaults in product design.
Great article Dharmesh :) :)
Hi, The Swiggy related annotation seems to be not there in the article. Am I missing something ?
great post as usual, Dharmesh. Always look forward to your newsletter!
the words - "No I will pay full price" is the one that hits very hard and forces users to avoid clicking that. Users tend to get swayed away with that kind of word framing. Many blogs use this mechanism too. "Click here to get a free 30 day workout plan" and the CTA being "Yes, give me" and "No, I want to stay unhealthy" - same level of dark pattern.
great post, dharmesh. a few points i wanted to add
1. is there a big difference between in the UX for donation at book my show and zomato? i didn't understand how the friction is different.
2. i use urban company a lot. i have never paid for their plus plan. while they have create a high visibility default, i feel like now that i have chosen to not pay more than 20 times, the default should change towards not adding that amount. in fact, i think by default, nothing should be added. not even a donation. these should be options, and there may be better, more benefit driven ways to do this. for instance, on urban company, if you choose to pay in cash, they will tell you to opt for online payment to avail insurance. this makes sense to me.
sorry for the long comment. thanks for writing again. :)
