I have opened a fashion store with Japanese idiomatic designs, selling to customers in print on demand.
What I want to ask are two things.
1. First impression feedback on my store.
2. what you think of the products. (price, design, clarity of product description, etc.)
I am a native Japanese speaker. So it's definitely the right Japanese.
Your advice and critiques are most welcome.
Solved! Go to the solution
Hope the following suggestions will help you
The website looks great, I like that first photo that shows the product on someone, it adds trust. The price point and product looks good.
Curious, who is your target audience? I'm going to assume for the purpose of this example that it is English speaking people who love the Japanese language.
One of the first concerns I would think of is that the translation isn't correct and you've written here that "I am a native Japanese speaker. So it's definitely the right Japanese." That is amazing, you definitely want to make sure that point is known.
Another thing I looked at was your product SEO. Getting your SEO done properly is so important, it's how people find you in Google and helps you ensure you are not just getting traffic to your website, but that you are getting the right kind of traffic, your intended audience.
By default, Shopify will take your product title and the description and add that into your SEO. The issue here is that an English speaking person (again, assuming this is your target audience) searching for your type of products wouldn't know to type "Eien Fumetsu Short-Sleeve Unisex T-Shirt" into Google, they would type "Japanese writing shirt" or something similar. We’ve created a video walking you through how to do your SEO properly so that you can target your intended audience:

This is PageFly. I would love to share my recommendations for your store and I hope this can help you with my conversion rate optimization and design experiment.
1. Home page
1.1 Make the CTA buttons clear
Having CTA buttons with a high-quality image banner is a good point, however, I highly recommend you should add a border for the HOODIE and SHIRT button to make it clear and different from the quote on the banner.
They have a 14px font size and I recommend you should increase to 16 or 18px.
1.2 Consult to change the layout of the product
I recommend you can consult the layout as my template above. You can put the product image in the grey block with the title and price.
And you can add the ATC buttons under each product as well.
1.3. Remove the blank space
1.4 Add more customer's review
People love proof, especially when they visit a store and see many good reviews, they will be willing to shop!
I see that you have only 1 review so I recommend you can add more. You can check the available testimonial element here, just drag and drop it and you can edit as you want.
So you should add testimonial/product reviews on your store. They can be placed for each product or even a review collection on your home page.
1.5 Add social media
You can consider adding your store's social such as Instagram, etc with images. This is a good way to connect you better with your customers and keep them updating.
I also notice that you put your store's social media on the footer but it is less attractive, therefore I recommend you should add social media account with images, for example, Facebook or Instagram feed.
You can consult my store home page here if you want to have more ideas.
2. Product page
I take this page for example https://jp-tee.com/collections/kanji-shirt/products/suiteki-sekisen-short-sleeve-unisex-t-shirt
2.1 Add more 3-5 images from multiple angles
Showing a product from multiple angles helps customers have a full understanding as if they are checking and looking at it in person. Each angle must be unique and show new information about your product, this encourages customers to take action and increase more trust as well.
With this product, you can add some photos of dishes that use the sauce to make it more colorful and professional.
2.2 Add product quantity
It's important to show the product quantity for the product description so customers can choose more products if they want.
You can consult my template https://demo.pagefly.io/pages/jewelleri
A page builder would be a good choice for you to have attractive and powerful pages quickly and you will have lots more time focusing on marketing strategies, so you can consider checking PageFly.
In the holiday season such as Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc, I prepared a master guide with unique marketing tips and some checklists to help to most out of those holidays.
Above are my recommendations for your store and it's really important to customize attractive and unique pages to increase conversion rate.
If you feel my answer helpful, like it or mark as a solution. Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers!
Have seen your site and have some comments for you:
- Your first impression is good but not enough in my opinion.
Your banners should have clear CTA buttons.
You can see this banner, the modal will be shown more attractive. On your banners, your customers won't know where they need to focus on.
- Between sections should have some space.
Also, it would be great if you can add Quickview buttons to allow your customers to see more product details faster.
- With an apparel store, the Instagram gallery is a necessary section in my opinion.
You can check this app Shoppable Instagram Gallery. It will help you create an Instagram gallery with ease.
- On your product pages, you need to add:
+ The Quantity section
+ The Sticky Add to Cart bar
+ Title for your description
- Consider having live chat support to improve your customer service. WhatsApp can be a good channel to chat with your friends.
App WhatsApp Chat & Abandoned Cart will help you do that.
- About your products, I think they're beautiful and the prices. However, the prices are quite high, especially the shirts.
If you still want to keep the prices, you can try to have some promotion events to encourage your customers to buy more.
Hope this helps!
Hi @jptee !
Add about us/ contact us pages
Add clear CTAs - help to show what to do next. Hero banner on your homepage is a key to make a connection with every visitor. You should clearly communicate what your website is about.
Add a blog page, blog page helps you to share more about your website and products which increases your site visibility.Your e-commerce blog will not only drive more traffic to your website—but it will increase your conversions too. Your blog will make you feel more credible and relatable, which will provide new clients with a greater sense of confidence in their purchases.
90% of people read reviews before purchasing an item. I personally do not read the description too much, I go straight on to the reviews section because that is social proof. In my opinion that is essential for every site. I highly recommend (almost insist) and adding that feature on your site. You can use Growave for that, it offers automated emails within the Reviews feature as well.
For adding the functions above you can use several apps. However, if you want to get all of them at once just with a couple of clicks, try Growave.
We have 6 great features -Reviews, Wishlist, Rewards, Social Login, Instagram, Discounts, etc.
There is a free plan available.
Hopefully, I managed to help you. If so, please let me know by liking this post.
