Size Chart is a must have for any e-commerce stores selling clothing. Without it, shopping online is like walking in the dark.

The problem is we often see poor size charts that are either a direct image from suppliers so each product page may have inconsistent styles. Most are also unoptimized due to lacking the unit conversion feature.

Why do you need to support unit conversion?

The biggest advantage here is that your customers can pick the unit they are most comfortable to think in to make a purchase decision. For example, people in the US are often more used to using inches while most people around the world can only understand centimeters. As your shoppers are likely more multi-national, it is a must to support both in order to further improve the conversion.

Even more important, it is extremely simple to set up the unit conversion using Kiwi Sizing once you have a sizing table set up.

Lets see how that works!

1. One simple step: Add units to the table

First you need a size table created. See our previous post for the process.

Once you have the table, click "Edit table" to open the table editor. Then you can see the "Table Unit conversion" button in the table editor.
