Hi,

I am working on a new store. It is an ADULT store and it is LIVE. So if you are offended by adult lingerie and toys please don't look. I know that it is plain and looks like oscommerce out of the box but i will still value opinions and suggestions. Do all the pictures load for you quickly, would you shop here, anything noticibaly wrong that sticks out, etc. No orders unless you are interested in what i have. Give me some negatives :P . Positives to if you like. Thanks.

The very first thing I see is that spelling mistake on the front page... Can't seem to take my eyes off it either... :blink:

 

Change your page title.

where? Oscommerce won't let me put an ' in couples without giving me an error or are you talking about the banner-i tried it without the ' and it did not look good at all. Just confused about where the mistake is- i am not a great speller :blush:

Sorry I thought I typed where it was in.... On the picture in the centre of the screen is read "Al" instead of "All".

If you want to put a ' in you need to put a slash before it, such as \' to stop the sql fromtrying to interpret it.

bad colour choices. The header is terrible in terms of readability and yes - it is terribly plain.

 

Get spicy with it - yer selling adult stuff - live on the edge - be fun and sexy about it....

 

And keep some class about the whole thing at the same time.

What don't you like color wise- the navy blue, or the purple, font color, or the stars? Is there one color you dislike in particular. Sorry just confused. I have tried to make the banner text not blurry but it is difficult.

I want it to be a shop that couples could shop at without it being really obscene. Most sex toy and adult websites you can tell that they are adult from all the way across the room. They usually have large images of personal products and obscene women all over the the front page. I want the person who shops to be comfortable and not overwelmed by huge pictures of adult items and images when they haven't even clicked to look at an item yet. I am not sure how i am going to achieve that effect but i will continue to work on it. Thank you for the replies. I would love to hear some more.

I just noticed you sell pd9580, that is a very descriptive product name???? :( And in your options of that product some are Capitalized and some are not. I think what afterdark meant was blue is not a sexy color and I agree with him. Lingerie is usually red, white, or black and it is in those colors for a reason. If the big companies make it that way it is not because they are stupid, it is because that is what people want and giving people what they want is why they are the big companies. Your site is not going to change popular opinion in the world so just go with it, do it with class and respect.

 

Your product descriptions need some work.

 

If you only have 1 Currency then you don't really need the box there.

Adult stores dont have to be obscene at all - being the proud owner of several porn sites I know tacky - i build it all the time - i also know that subtle can be acheived - http://www.sexypants.me.uk

 

The headre graphics are terrible from a contrast point of view - the colors dont work together.

 

Select colors that compliment each other and have some contrast.... and still convey a warm sexy overtone... it can be done - trust me ;)

I quite like the colours.

 

Get rid of the DVD subcategories (unless you intend selling kid's movies along with the marital aids :D).

 

In fact, get rid of the category entirely until you have some stock to sell.

There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who do not.

 

To understand Recursion, first one must understand Recursion.
