Hello.

I was asked to recommend the simplest shopping cart solution that can do these :

- the website will sells construction materials

- the website will not be in English, so it needs to be easy to change the language

- at checkout it either accepts credit cards AND / OR allow you to send an invoice that will later be payed on delivery [ this is the tricky part, at least for me as generally I only see paypal checkouts ]

- allows the possibility to offer discounts / codes can be introduced to obtain 10 – 30% discounts

- intuitive admin panel

- relatively easy templateing system and availability of templates

- good seo options

Since I haven’t worked with eshops in a long time I thought it would be wise to ask here for some suggestions.

I hope someone can help me out :)

This is an interesting experiment :)

Please be so kind as to record and share with us next month how making this change has impacted your total items sales.

I personally don’t think it’s a good idea to give the documentation out – as ThemeBlvd says a detailed documentation adds to the incentive of actually buying it and not ripping it off the live demo.

What I do though is provide a screenshot of the source code ( as I encrypt the live preview ) + a screenshot of a part of the documentation, mainly the table of contents.

This combined with the documentation rating and your author rating I think is enough to convince people to buy or not.

I know that there was another thread about this topic but nothing happened after it so I thought another one might be needed.

I’m a firm believer that the Marketing Category belongs higher in the dropdown, next after Wordpress.

Who agrees? even an +1 would be enough..

Maybe we can get an official response if they would consider rearranging the dropdown.

I like it overall but don’t necessarily agree with the ordering.

On smaller resolutions you have to scroll down to see the last items in the dropdown.

Taking this into account i think the sensible solution would be to put the more important things up in the list.

I hope most people agree with me that the new Marketing category and especially it’s Email Templates subcategory has always been a big chunk of the total sales made on themeforest and as a result is pretty important yet even so it is placed so low in the dropdown that I had problems spotting it out the first time after the change was made.

And the fact that it is preceded by the Blogging category which barely has files or the xcart subcategory of eCommerce which is empty at the moment makes no sense to me.

What I want to propose is to either move Marketing up ( right under WordPress if you ask me or at the very least change places with Blogging) and/or trim down some of the subcategories being shown that are not doing some well.

What is your opinion, does anyone agree?

Congratulations Bluz, very nice template, can’t wait to check out your BluzPanel :D
Thanks bitpub. But you can check it out only in the Wordpress version :P this file is the HTML version.

Dam for some reason I clicked on your featured file and thought it was the free file. I now see the free file and it’s cool as well :). I think I’ll see the panel soon though as I have a new project one of your WP files should fit just nice :D

Again, congratulations, well deserved!

Big companies main concern is to get their websites working in any environment (operating system, browser, javascript on/off etc ) not necessary to make the websites validate.

I have seen an presentation made by a yahoo front end designer and one of the ideas was progressive enhancement ( offering content and functionality depending on the users browser capability) and the second was the fact that they still support as low as Internet Explorer 4 ! and hacks are required to do this..

So rest assured that even if they don’t validate, those sites work in any browser. I find that better then saying that a website is valid but it doesn’t work in Internet Explorer 6…

Add my dislike to the border also – it adds nothing so why add it?

+1 Agreed.

What bugs me the most is the preview image resize.

For graphicriver items which have very long item previews it makes sense but for themeforest where the size is fixed it does not.

I usually try to keep to myself and respect the changes made but with this one I keep going back to my item previews and have the feeling they look horrible the way they are scaled down. The text is hard to read as well. I’m really afraid that it will hurt sales.

I hope this change is reverted or at least we get an official response on the matter
