For a short time now, I have been working on my own ecommerce website. This has been something I have been thinking of doing for some time now. I finally got started on this natural progression from having my Sunshine Decals Etsy shop to opening my own SunshineDecals.com ecommerce website.
It is not complete. I just started working on it. At first I was focusing more on design and shopping cart features. I did so to make sure I was getting everything I want from an ecommerce solution for my store. So far, so good.
Currently, I am adding products to the shopping cart catalog. But the site is not active. Once I put in the final touches, I will make it live.
Once I have it up and running, I will share more details about my choice for this shopping cart, whether good, bad, or in between.
But right now, I just want to show it off a bit. So far I love the design and I hope it looks welcoming enough to customers.
Here’s the home page to SunshineDecals.com …
As you can see I already created my logo. I think I like this one. I am going to see how I incorporate it into my Etsy shop. I also created the large image you see on the screen. That’s actually a slideshow. I can add more photos and choose the number of seconds before it transitions into the next slide. But that’s all design.
As to functionality…
Before adding items to the catalog. I worked on making sure I was getting what I wanted from the shopping cart item selection features. For example, adding choice of color or size and making sure you can choose more than one color for different parts of the decal.
Once I add quite a few more items to my cart, I might take it for a test run to see how well the whole process of making a purchase from the customer side and receiving an order from my side work. I also want to see how well the shipping features work once I give it a run. But that’s later.
For now I just wanted to see what you thought about my design…
SunshineDecals.com caters mostly to interior wall vinyl designs for children’s room, bedrooms, nurseries, family rooms and so on. So I chose a pleasant design where my decals would look like they belong.
So, how do you like the design for my ecommerce website?
