I launched my store one year ago and I'm looking to make a bigger update of the store.



Here are some of the updates I'm looking at:

- New store search option

- Store speed update

- "As seen in" and include all the media our company have been featured in

- Notify Me-button after a product is sold out

- All category-tags visible in mobile-version


Do you guys have any more suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @soliplants , this is Opinew - Product Review App. Here are some comments I would like to add about your store:

The header: you may need to improve your header since the main menu is now under the Menu. Showing the Main Menu on the Header may help customers navigate through your store faster. You can show the full search bar on the Header too.



The Homepage

  • Banners: you may need to improve your banner since the information delivery is not really good. You can change the backgrounds related to the products or brand; add more attractive Headings and CTAs to banners too.


  • Testimonials section: you need to add a Testimonials section to your Homepage. Customers can read your stores’ feedback and rating which will make them feel safer and trust on your store.
  • The product list: the hover effect which shows the 2nd product’s image, can provide more information about the products. You should add this effect to your product list.
  • Discounts: some customers will only buy or hunt stores with big discounts. More discounted products will attract more customers. You can set a countdown timer as well to add more urgency.

Your Product page: 

  • The product images: your product images are good but not enough. You may need to show some more images. Or better, you can record short videos to introduce your products.
  • Review sections: the reviews about your product are important to prove your product’s quality and origin. You can give buyers rewards or discounts to motivate them to write reviews.
  • Delivery Date:  customers will want to see when they can receive their product. You can try to estimate the shipping date on your product page.


  • You show a lot of information about your product, but there isn't any information about your services. You can show other sections the Refund policies or Shopping policies on your product page. So that customers may read them without leaving the product page.

I hope these suggestions can be helpful for your online store. Please hit Like or Solution if you agree.

Good luck with your store!

Hello @soliplants 

Hope you are doing good. Your Store looks nice and here are few suggestions.

Add a nice Logo on the header section which gives Identity and Separates from the competition.

Add shop Now (CTA) on the Hero Banner. also work on the content on hero banner as they are blended in the background image.

Add Testimonials or Reviews on the Homepage, which helps in building trust with other visitors.

There are no reviews on your products. Add Product review app, so that customer can review on your products.

You can promote your products with word of mouth strategy. Boost your sales with the app from the shopify app store  which helps to increase your sales further. Improve your conversions by directly reaching those who close to your customers.

There is no terms and conditions checkbox at checkout. I suggest you to install an app from shopify app store which provides 'I agree to the Terms and Conditions' before checkout .As it makes easy for the customer to read your terms and policies.

You can also sell your products on Etsy marketplace as it is very good platform to sell unique, handmade and Vintage goods . If you are already selling on Etsy store consider our Etsy Integration app in the shopify app store. Etsy is a Huge marketplace, if you have any unique or Handmade product in your store, you can give further exposure to your products.

Hi @soliplants 

I took a look at your store, it is well designed and works well on mobile.

I understand that you're looking for a new store search option. I will recommend checking out Collection Filter & Search Bar by Sobooster

Here are 3 reasons to consider Collection Filter & Search Bar by Sobooster;

1. The search engine is powered by AI - this simply means your customers can find the products they are looking for even when they are not typing the exact keyword. You can also use the search bar for merchandising and product recommendations.

2. Advanced Collection Filter - the app also adds beautiful filters to your collection and search page to help your customers filter by any option type and get the current variant image

3. Amazing support team

Hi @soliplants 

This is PageFly - Free Landing Page Builder. I would love to provide my recommendation for your store based on 5 years of providing solutions for about 100.000 active Shopify merchants.

So I have just gone through your website and here are some of my thoughts the homepage:

  1. Plus points:
  • My first impression is that your site looks quite clear and it display a wide enough range of your product. It helps visitors immediately understand what you sell and the range of your product
  • I really appreciate the sticky menu header on your site. It enables customers reach the navigator whenever they want.
  • I’m also impressed by the Spotify playlist “Music for your plants” of yours. This might be something that set your site apart from others.
  1. That being said, I would like to give you some suggestions for improvement. Hope you find it valuable.
  • The sticky navigation bar has no background so the brand name some time blend in the text and images of your page. This heavily affects the aesthetics of your site. My suggestion is that you should add some background to this section. It will help to highlight the sticky header and improve the site’s aesthetics.



  • The text positioned on your first banner is kind of conflict with the image background, making it difficult to read. To ensure legibility, my advise is that you adjust the text color or change the image. Using a semitransparent text background overlay is also an option.  



  • It would really help to build trust with first time visitor if you display some great testimonials to your home page. There are many good apps on Shopify app store that you can use to use reviews to your page, for instance, Loox, Yotpo, Judge.me, etc. Here is an example of testimonials displayed on homepage:



  • Finally, the footer of your page seems to have many redundant spaces. My thought is that the text should be evenly divided or you can add some more information to utilize the space of footer.



Above are some of my initial thoughts on your store and I hope you find something helpful. If you are still looking for a tool to build a great website, I hope you can try our product: PageFly Landing Page Builder. PageFly has a free plan with 1 customized Home page, 1 customized landing / regular page, 1 customized Product page, 1 customized Collection page, 1 customized Blog post page as well as all our templates and I believe our product can satisfy your need.

If these feedback about the homepage is helpful, please give me a "like". Thank you so much and I hope your business is successful!

Hey @soliplantsThis is AiTrillion- an All-in-one Marketing Platform on Shopify. We are happy to help more than 100k+ Shopify merchants and would love to provide a solution to your questions.

- The first fold of the website should always have a call to action in it -and here’s why; in most cases placing the CTA above the fold works wonders for your campaigns. This placement immediately draws your visitors’ attention to your CTA which is always good for conversions.


- Issue with navigation - Make your store easy to navigate. Add a sticky header with a drop-down menu. If your store will be easy to navigate it will help you to reduce the bounce rate.

- Add the ‘buy now’ button- it lets your shoppers purchase the products they want faster and avoid extra steps of the checkout process.

Setup Newsletter Subscription with automatic emails with thankyou and discount coupon.

- Add a review carousel on the homepage. It helps to build trust with other visitors. 

Add trust badges in your store. With the help of trust badges, customers will know that all the processes taking place are safe and secure. 

- Make your announcement bar clickable and add a call to action button on it to let customers take an action.

- Add a review section on the product page as people read reviews before making a purchase. 

-  Give rewards to your customers. By offering rewards for completing actions like making a purchase or following you on social media, you show your customers that you care about how they engage with you and want to thank them for it. This encourages them to do it again in the future, transforming them into valuable repeat customers.


To add the above marketing engagement tools there are many apps available in the Shopify app store. Instead of installing multiple apps, you can install the all-in-one Shopify app AiTrillion and get all the benefits of marketing features in a single app to drive conversions. 

P.S- Free plan available.
