OH pretty! I would say though that having 2 pages to go through before someone who hits your site gets to the store is a bit much. Maybe that's just me; I've never been a fan of opening page before one get to the "real" site. Kinda feels like a superfluous publishing holdover from cover sheets on letters, reports, and faxes. There it wastes paper, but on the web it wastes time and the web is about doing things quickly. Just food for thought.

 

NOW, I love your designs and layout adjustment. Nice stuff, the arrangement gave me some ideas of my own. :)

 

I would though... consider... making the pictures on the first catalog page clickable to take you to the product. My first impulse was to click those and nothing happened. They feel like they should lead somewhere; if your customers sees a product that interests them anywhere on your site it might be a good idea for them to be able to click it to go to the items page. Like it-click it-buy it. Same with the pre catalog page; before going to your site I already knew the actual catalog was deeper than the second page, but will other people? If you do want to keep the current sequence to get to the catalog I can understand, but for example when someone in the second page looks at necklaces or whatnot, when they pull up a picture of a design they should also be able to go straight to the catalog page for that design from there. Again, like it-click it-buy it. Having to hunt down a particular picture by hunting through your catalog could be frustrating to some users when many expect to be able to click things on the web. Yeah, they're lazy, but part of sales is allowing your customer to BE lazy. ;) Some won't like, if they like an earring they see up front, to have to hunt through 8 pages of earrings to find it. They could hunt for it based on the stone, but... not every customer is going to know what stone is what. Nor do they have to. They only have to like how it looks. :) But I also realize the website is selling one-of-a-kind jewelry so that could be tedious to manage as a webmaster.

 

Some information on types of stones could be nice too. Nothing particularly complex, but some personal impressions by the artist and why she likes this or that particular stone would be a beautiful touch and I think it would strengthen the site's theme.

I agree about the pics on the mainpage not being clickable.it's just an instinct..also the font color is really hard to read on the left navigation and product descripstions.And to me feels kinda empty on the right column.

Lose the splash page.

 

Move your store to the root of your site, and start selling your goods from the index.

 

The purpose of your website is not to tell people about your artsy-fartsy outlook on pretty rocks, its to sell them. There is nothing said on your non-store areas of the site that can't be said in the store in relation to actual products.

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

Hi,

I noticed you asked for feedback on the Os Commerce forum. I just had a look at you site and I think it looks good - it's user friendly with good descriptions and I think your pictures look good, overall I think it will do well in the right target market. One thing...I noticed your using worldpay, we had heaps of trouble with them...paypal is much better.

In return I would really appreciate if I could get some feedback from you too -

 

My website has been running now for 3 months and has had thousands of unique visitors, but no one has ordered. Can you please give me any feedback of what you think about the products, prices, and the website in general, I would really appreciate it!!! The website is - www.naturalbodyskincare.com

 

email me - [email protected]

 

Much Appreciated and Merry Christmas to You!

 

Cheers

Timon
