Making small changes to your website could increase the conversion rate and customers progress. But you need to be sure the changes you make are an improvement in your order process. This is where you can use AB Testing. Make changes and display it to a percentage of your customer views and compare again the same number that view the original site. When you are happy that the change is giving you a return on conversion rate, then you can make that change permanent to your main site.
