Mike, is the 1/32 P-26 cockpit really $0.25 before discount code?

December 6 2017, 2:14 PM 

I was able to put it in my shopping cart and I am guessing that it a pricing error.

Put the site/business name or a link in your post...

December 6 2017, 3:09 PM 

If you're going to announce a new site, it is a good idea to include it in the announcement. Not everyone reading this post knows who you are....

For those that didn't know, it is: http://www.lonestarmodels.com/

Well, it's not a new site, just a revamped one, and the URL is the same

December 6 2017, 3:14 PM 

But your point is well-taken. I was just asking myself if the site had a new URL, too.

Looks good, Mike!

The landing page is nice; I like the B-10 as wallpaper. All of the pages look good, easy to navigate to. I like the filters on your catalog pages, too, and the paging is easy. Kudos to your IT guy!

Some Site feedback.....

December 6 2017, 3:52 PM 

Mike,

The site looks very nice. However, as I browsed around, I noticed some items that I think need correction/improvement. I was going to send this as a private message, but decided to post it here instead- to save other volunteer proofreaders from the task of reporting items you already have had reports about.....

All of this is offered in the spirit of constructive feedback-- we all benefit if your site is a huge success, and leads to the production and sale of even more goodies.....



1. No scales are listed in the product titles, and some don't have the scale mentioned in the descriptions, either.
When I arrived at the site. I clicked on the "store" button. That loads the "all" view by default-- so I was presented with a screen full of image tiles for the various products. That view allows me to go straight to any product item I click on, and the info often isn't there, either. I discovered that there are filters, so I can limit my browsing to "1/48 scale kits" for example, but this is the only way I was able to figure out what scale the Sparrowhawk kit is. (After I had wrongly guessed 1/72 and then 1/32!)

2. Typo: "LSM CC44006 C/KC97 Tab=nker"

3. Shipping charges for orders of "$0 to $50" and $50 to $100" orders are listed, but nothing for over $100. (And which charge appies to a $50 order?)

4. On your main page welcome, the last sentence needs a period.

5. Contact Us page: Need a space after the period before the letter I:
....send me a message.I generally....

6. The Model Repair and Construction page needs a title and an introduction at the top of the page. Something like this:
Model Repair and Construction Services

I offer repair services for all types of models, and also offer completed models for sale. Scroll down to see some examples of my offerings and cababilities.

Interested in these services?

6. I didn't check the prices for everything-- but I saw someone else already reported a possible pricing error....


All of the above are based on my first 10 minutes or so of browsing the site-- and this feedback is meant to help you improve the site and the customer experience....

I'd be happy to elaborate on any of the above- feel free to contact. me directly.

-Bill

+1 my suggestion ...

December 6 2017, 5:32 PM 


...would be to have the filters static
(in a sidebar for example) rather than
a popup. Popups are easily missed.

Looks nice tho Mike.

I just like airplanes.

Suggestion

December 6 2017, 4:34 PM 

Mike, nice site. Here's one suggestion. Get the shopping cart to add in shipping cost, at least for domestic orders. As it is currently, you have text at the top of your store page specifying shipping/handling to add to order. But the shopping cart will take a customer all the way to payment without any mention of shipping. I suspect many customers will blow right past your shipping cost announcement, load their cart, and place orders that don't include any payment for shipping/handling. In fact, even for customers who do see the shipping/handling notice, I don't see any way to edit the amount calculated by the shopping cart to add a shipping/handling payment.

Okay, so how should a customer pay?

December 6 2017, 6:30 PM 

If we go through the checkout process you're not going to collect any shipping/handling payment. Are you going to just eat those costs and fulfill the orders anyway? Or are you going to ask customers to PayPal you the extra $8-$10 in a separate transaction? That would be inconvenient for the customers and probably also for you since you would have to manually match up the orders and the separate shipping/handling payments. I'm not complaining or trying to be critical, just trying to understand how this is supposed to work.
