Takeaways & Next Steps
As a team and as individuals, we learned a lot from our work for Solipay. I had never worked for a client as a contractor before and quickly realized how valuable it is to bring those stakeholders into multiple steps of the UX process, not just the final presentation.
If we were to revisit this project with Solipay and build on it futher, we'd involve the client in a more active way where it makes sense to do so. Based on what we learned, possible next features to test include:
- A dedicated home page where users can learn more about key aspects of their app usage, like how much passive income they've generated or the kinds and amounts of data they've shared.
- A feed that shows information that shows information that users would be interested in (i.e. what kind of data is being bought by what company, how much a certain kind of data is selling for).
- An expansion of payment methods. Users in our testing made it clear that more payment options would only increase their interest in using the Solipay app, opening the door to test things like cryptocurrency as a form of payment.
When it comes to revisions on our design, we'd look to update the following based on our testing:
- Revising the Offer copy once we do further research on what users need to know and would benefit from knowing.
- Adding a transaction history to the app, likely on the Balance page, so users have a better understanding of when they've sold their data and how much value they've generated in using the Solipay app.
Given how important data privacy & security is today and how much more scrutinized it'll be in the coming years, I found this project to be invaluable to my development as a UX designer. It's the kind of project that will impact the way I think about designing for data for years to come. I'm grateful to my teammates for their comradery and to Solipay for this opportunity.View Next Project
