The e-commerce.

Just another Tee Shirt Shop


Recommended Posts

I think I am getting the Hang of this and have done a few modes.

I am a Big Boy (I promise I will not Cry) so Honest Critism is appreciated :wacko: I have not put very many products in it as of yet - I figure the Store Prep is more important.


Terrible Tees


I have it framed in under one of my other sites (Domain Name redirected) and so far I have not noticed any problems from doing it.


Un Framed


Thanks in Advance for taking time to give it a Look

Hi Terry,

Thanks for looking at my site. I took a look at yours.


I really like the graphic header and the colours. I like your different graphics for account, etc. too, different from the OSC Stock version.


Why not change the buttons a bit too, as you've put so much time in by the looks of it ? The OSC blue buttons don't go with the colour of your site IMO.


You shipping and returns page has the Underline wrapping onto two lines though which looks a bit Front-Pagey. ;) Why not use an html horizontal line <hr> , or use CSS and make a thinner line ? :blink:


A lot of people still don't like frames, as they seem to 'restrict' movement. I use tables always and use a template so I don't have to update each page every time. :) Frames also prevent people from bookmarking (adding to favourites) a particular page.


Nice one though. Have you got your merchant account and postage sorted yet ? That's the most tricky bit for me I reckon. Postage is ???. :ph34r: ;)

I am working on my buttons right now. So I may have diiferent ones (mismatched)until I get them all done.



I will change the Frame thing after I get thru with the Store


Thanks for the Ideas

Here are a few things you may want to consider changing and are only my opinions:


In Shipping and Returns: continues United States. should be contiguous United States.


If you only ship to the above States, why do you have the Currencies and Languages boxes enabled?


On the Privacy page the first sentence needs to be restructured. It is way too long. Also on that page, and elsewhere, you need to change the fonts to set off different parts of the text. The font used for the paragraph title and the paragraph are the same which causes it all to run together. Try making the title of each paragraph one pt larger and only having the title in bold.


The font used for the body text is too large and bolded. It causes the text to appear unformatted and makes it harder to read.


Forget about the framed shop. It will only cause you trouble.

I had serious response time issues with your server when I tried to connect. Does that happen often? That will kill a sale real quick.

My advice comes in two flavors- Pick the one that won't offend you.
