Well, the coupon didn't work (course it's not working now either), the changing quantities in the cart or removing items didn't work, when you clicked on 'checkout' in the store with nothing in your cart you got an error, etc. Apparantly I've got a very different setup, so he had to write different code for mine, but it's okay, 4 pages is quick enough.

 

Where have you been girl???

ugh.. just around. I needed a serious break from all this.. and then on sunday my husbands friends spend the night, all 15 of them. In our little house.. so that was a LONG weekend.

 

Anyways.. that SUCKS that it didnt work. You didnt REALLY have that many contributions that changed your checkout, right? I mean, aside from the basic. Now it makes me scared to to something like that with mine as well.. i might just pay a REALLY good coder to do it from scratch for me. I cangt believe OSC does do this out of the box, but whatever.. I think its safe to assume that if it didnt work on yours, its NOT gonna work on mine either.

ROFLMAO!!!! It's a tree! ADD is ADarkDesire and the Tree is like from Eden....or it could be the Tree of Life....or a Woody *slapping leg and laughing*

 

Don't be scared to try stuff on your site. You're not even open yet. Go ahead and give stuff a go! What the hell!

I keep visiting your site to see whether you've done anything *nudge nudge*.

I have that one installed too, and I really like it. I'm hawking it to everyone....*laughing*. I'll be having some downtime this Sunday, so if you need some help with the header, give me a hollar.

PS: I just installed that cDynamic Meta Tags v1.6 and it was kick-ass easy and works!!!!

I got a chance to take a look at the site. My first reaction is, great another adult toy store. There are many of these online and will be hard to make any money due to the fact that there is so much competition. In my opinion the site is way too cluttered, the categories are not large enough, and there is no phone number visible.

 

Come on, let’s face it your a 53 years old woman. Basically a grandma. I find that to be disgusting at your age to be running a porn store. A good looking younger female would be a whole different story. That would actually would want men to buy from your store. I’m a 42 year old female and would be ashamed if I ran a business of that nature. I mean I would hate to tell my grandkids what I did for a living. I just wanted to give you my honest opinion because that is what people are looking for right?

Hmmm, well, the phone number is both on the contact page and in the left column.

I don't consider what I do to be porn. It's sex, sure, but I don't consider sex to be 'dirty'. *shrug* I guess it's in how you were raised. By the way, I am a grandma, and a hot grandma. I'm not ashamed in the least. Good thing you're not in the business.

 

You're right, it is a saturated market, and yet, I'm already selling fairly briskly and I've just started. I was asking for look and feel feedback, not for your frigid morality, which you can keep to yourself lady. Move on.

I must say, that compliment about you being a hot grandma reminds me of the fat girls that say they are hot all the time when you very well they are not. For Pete’s sake, did you forget that you had your picture posted on the forums? It would have been better for you to go into a mirror business if you know what I mean. Yes, you are right, I am glad I am not in the porn (sex toy) business. I do have class, not trash. P.S. you have a very attractive husband though.

OMG what a bucnh of butt munches. really, who cares WHO is selling WHAT. She wasnt jumping around saying i'm the hottest thing to walk this earth, but even so, who are you to judge? really. And as far as WHAT she is selling, she gave you a warning that it was adult content so its your choice to click past there.

 

And yea, she was looking for opinions on the look and feel of the site. Not the content and her OWN looks. Really, you women are too uptight. If her grandkids ask her what she does for a living, all she has to say is that "i sell things on my online store" and if they ask to see it, or what they sell, she can say they are for adults only. Thats all kids NEED to know. And really, if you both think sex is dirty and people past a certain age shouldnt be interested in things of the sexual exploratory nature, then i feel bad for you and your husbands. I'm 25, and i only HOPE to be as happy and open in my 50s.

Wow, so older women can't be hot? Fat women can't be hot? A bit narrow minded aren't we? You don't think Queen Latifah is hot? I happen to think I'm hot. Maybe I'm delusional. I don't care. I like how I feel about myself. You can't change it. Get over yourself.

 

Your judgemental attitude is not working here. Not on this thread. Please take it somewhere else. I'm sorry you carry the views you do, but there you have it. Now please go away, or at least take your beliefs to some other thread. It's off topic, and not what this thread is about.

Agreed. It's sad. But it's okay, differences make the world go round. She didn't have to be mean though.

agreed. I feel sorry for people who feel like that> obviously they havent been exposed to many people with many differences. There are so many types of "hot" that you cant define it as a tall skinny chick. The mean comes from her own insecurities anyways. If someone has to point out your flaws to make herself feel better, then theres something MUCH MUCH uglier under there. I doubt the person will be back> probably a troll. i mean those were the FIRST TWO POSTS>

All in all the site looks pretty good. I do have a few suggestions:

 

- On the product info page, the Add to Cart button kind of gets lost above the Manufacturers box. I would suggest maybe moving it to the empty space to the right of the large product image.

- When clicking on a main category, all the subcategory images are the same. I'm not sure why, but I thought that was a little confusing. I mean, obviously they are all different categories and you can easily read what they are, but all the same I found the same small images to be a bit odd.

- When looking the the DVD listings, I feel like there should be either more space or a separation of some kind between each line. As it is, the dvd images are almost touching each other, they seem a little smooshed.

- Actually, I guess I refine that to be all the product listings. Maybe a little super thin line or something between each listing. Nothing to bold otherwise it would seem too broken up, but I think some separation would be good.

- There is a black box above the "Newest Products" section. When I hover it says sale stuff, but I just see a black box.

- I think in general you could reorganize your product info page a bit. As mentioned above, the Add to Cart button seems a little lost. Also, the text seems shoved up at the top and the image feels a bit out of place.

 

I see you ended up without the 1-page checkout. I'm sorry to hear that didn't work out for you! It sounds like you've had your fair share of frustrations in all of this. I've been there! I may have to purchase an item or two from your site to help forget some of my troubles!! (:

LOL! Thanks for the feedback Gretchen. Good point about the product info page. I'll have to take a look at that. I'll relook at the product listings as well.

 

I have no idea what the black box is above the Newest Products section. I have a couple on the upper right. Could that may be the image you are not seeing? Hmm.

 

Yes, the one page checkout has been really disappointing. It's not that the app is bad, it's my setup. My ssl and my public directory are 2 different directories, and my payment gateway works differently than the norm, so it was not to be. But, 4 pages is not awful for folks to get through to check out.

 

Thanks again for your eyes!

The black box is on the leftis in between the Products box and the Newest Products box. When I hover over it the alt text says "click here for sales items". It looks like a black box with a blue border, but there is no text or anything.

 

Hope that helps.

If you are looking to streamline your checkout use the Fast Easy Checkout

 

With a small modification, you can set it to create an account when the customer enters in their address details.

 

You will cut your checkout down to three pages this way (same as Amazon).

 

All my website are running this checkout and it works great.

 

Cheers

i have heard that the fast easy checkout is riddled with bugs and all that.. I dunno about adding that just yet.

 

On a side note, WHY does your profile say you have contributions when none come up?

I have submitted updates on a couple contributions that have since been removed by oscommerce admins, why I don't know, don't really care.

 

As for Fast Easy Checkout, been using it for well over a year now and no bugs, just because you heard something doesn't mean its right, but then again I modify everything on my sites, rarely do I use the stock contribution code.
