This paper examines and summarizes rules, guidelines and methods for how an e-commerce site should be designed, which elements it should contain and where these should be placed. Our approach consists of two phases. First we comprise relevant research within the target area. This is then divided into logical themes and is used as a foundation for an interview guide, which will be used in the second phase. After this, in the second phase, we conduct qualitative interviews with designers that are actively working with design of e--‐commerce sites. These can be part of a larger team or work more or less alone, i.e. the participants are not limited to being part of a larger or smaller company or project. The purpose of this is to establish if the relevant research is coherent with how designers work within the area of Västra Götaland. The result will also serve as a kind of general template, which can be used as support or inspiration while creating an e--‐commerce site, supported by the research material as well as the interviews. We concluded that the research and the way the designers work were mainly coherent. The difference between the research and the result of the interviews were mainly that the people in the business develop more methods and guidelines in a faster pace than the research can keep up with. This is because they are actively developing the business as part of the design community.
