Surely you are trying to keep up with all the updates and news in the field of e-commerce. It does not matter whether you already have a working site or it is only in development, in any case, you need to follow the trends that change every half year.
For January 19th, the statistics for the 2018th year are already summarized: how many users used the desktop version, and how many mobile users for online purchases; what design affects usability and conversion; which of the functional causes the greatest involvement and clickability of users. After reviewing all the data and hearing the opinion of experts, it is possible to make unambiguous conclusions about what should be an online store in 2019.
The design of desktop versions should be close to the design of mobile versions, which are increasingly getting used to by users. Conciseness and simple navigation - this is what you need to strive for when creating websites.
In the desktop version, the usual thing is the top menu with 5-10 items. In the mobile version, all these sections are placed in a single "Menu" button, which in clicking opens a convenient list.
The search string in the mobile version is also simplified: it is usually a small icon that, when clicked, expands to a string where it is convenient to enter a search query. The whole design should be simple, and not confuse the user, make him “wander” for hours on the site in search of the right product.
In the product card, you also need to remove all unnecessary:
1. Long stock button
2. Extra text with information about delivery and payment (this information may be in one section of the site)
3. Comparison of goods
4. Likes and comments
How to arrange a product card for user involvement?
1. Large, clear product's photo
2. A short but informative description
3. Feedback from social networks (number of comments, likes)
Trends of eCommerce 2019 suggest a decrease in banner advertising on sites, as more and more users develop banner blindness and a negative opinion towards banners.

But no, they are all similar in their functionality, the location of the menu and search, and users on an intuitive level quickly find what they need. In the online stores should also be developed a generalized structure that will help buyers quickly maneuver across all pages. So, another eCommerce 2019 trend is a generalization.
