We havent been on Shopify for 5 years and last time we were here we found that getting feedback from the community was really useful...so we were wondering if anyone could give us feedback on our new store www.herotoys.co.uk Any feedback would be much appreciated!!!
Our store is based on Clean Theme's Masonry theme, which is just awesome as a starting point..
I am surprised that after 5 years, there still doesnt appear to be any Shopify-based system for bulk upload / easy management of metafields - what a nightmare. I tried a lot of apps but ended up typing them in one by one. Am I missing a trick there? - I cant believe that isnt solved yet. Also Shopify's product reviews doesnt allow customers to post pictures of their purchases, so we had to use Jotform for that and place thei upload form behind a tab so we didnt hit the page-views-threshold for free-use. We used our own carousel for the home page which works by just shoving 5 products in a manual collection, and the carousel combines a product pic and th product's vendor collection pic to make a banner/slider. We didnt find a good / cheap solution for pre-orders so we do that by using negative inventory ranges to become a group, eg -3000 to -3100 inventory is "coming soon", -3100 is pre-orders for january, -3200 is preorders for feb etc.
If there is any help I cant give in return just ask .
