About a week ago, I was working on a Friday night and found out myself hungry. I thought to order pizza, however, the bit lengthy ordering process made me lazy to fill my tummy with it. So, I thought for some alternative options.
Now, no more worries. Domino’s comes with Zero Click option. Users just have to download an application and link it to a Domino’s pizza profile, where you have a standard “Easy Order” saved. When you open an application, you will have 10 seconds before your Easy Order is placed.
If you want, you can pause the timer and review your Easy Order details. When you are ready, you can resume the timer and let it reach zero to place your Easy Order.
It’s a Domino’s strategy to reduce unnecessary friction to increase revenues and conversions.

Complexity Friction makes things more difficult. Having the more complexity means the higher risk of friction.

Moreover, removing the navigation bar simplifies the website’s purpose and makes it easier for users to concentrate on the task only.
Information Friction that can be omitted, if it is of No use.
- Example – Enhance pricing page for multiple packages.
Having a poor set of the pricing page can dramatically decrease in sales. You can use different ways to improve the layout of different price points and features to minimum friction.
Time Friction deals with the things like load time and speed.
- Example – Website Loading Speed & Conversions
One of the most important parts of the conversion rate optimizations is Page Load Speed. According to study at Amazon, 1% decrease in sales for every 0.1-second decrease in response times. less credible and quality observe Slow web pages. Your web page should take less than 3 seconds of loading time to reduce friction and increase higher conversion rates.
Visual Friction having different types of visual elements that reduce friction like background patterns, button color, font kerning, video placement, etc.
- Example – Must Have Bigger “add to cart” button
An “add to cart” button should be the leading button on the product page. It should fluidly guide the user toward to the upcoming phase — clicking the ‘add to cart’ button.
