The best fonts for Ecommerce

Home > Blog > Ecommerce > The best fonts for Ecommerce

There are many great fonts available from sites like Typekit, Google Fonts and Adobe Edge Web Fonts to name a few.

But in my opinion here are the absolute best fonts for Ecommerce websites.

Sans serif
Helvetica
Arial
Verdana
Serif
Georgia
Times New Roman
Monospaced
Courier New

Using a mixture of these fonts you can create an easy to read, well-designed website. These fonts are considered “web-safe”, which means they are available on almost any computer.

You DO NOT need to add a custom font to your site. The customer does not care.
It will slow down your website and increase the number of resources your page has to download before it is fully rendered.

Custom fonts are great on sites that focus on design and brand. In my opinion, they don’t belong on an Ecommerce website where every kb and second counts.
