According to Baymard, 73% of stores don’t explicitly mark both required and optional fields. Only a few of the stores I looked at implement this – and it is very easy to do.

As a consequence, 32% of users during testing encountered a validation error because they did not complete a required field.

 

Add asterisks to required fields, and “(Optional)” next to optional fields.
