Hi I am new to Shopify 

I have been busy trying to add items to the plan I have which is the standard online store where I can hopefully sell on social media. I just need some professional shopifiers to take a look at the store and give me some feedback ?

This is an accepted solution.

You're welcome! @Mkembroidery  I understand your situation. 
1. Regarding to the chat support, I see your concern, especially with personalized items where communication is crucial. You can try to add contact form (built-in feature in Shopify) or app Shopify inbox (it is a Shopify app too and it is totally free)...
2. About the collections, you can archive that by page builder app, most of them have free plan such as PageFly, Gempages, ...

 

Hope it helps and Let me know if you need further assistance!

@Mkembroidery Thank you for sharing the store URL and welcome to the Shopify community!
Overall, I find your design quite appealing and user-friendly. It seems like you're aiming for a layout similar to having all products on one page, right? I have a few suggestions that I hope you'll find useful:

1. Homepage

  • It would be beneficial to have a favicon. Though small, it can build trust and make your store appear more professional.

  • Consider removing the white background behind the icon in the header; it's a small detail but can enhance the overall aesthetics.

  • Incorporate a hero banner to showcase any promotions or featured content you want to highlight in your store.

  • Include a collection list: A collection list helps categorize your products into logical groups or collections. This makes it easier for customers to find what they're looking for, especially if you offer a wide range of products.

  • Some products are missing prices; please double-check those, or if they're intentionally price-hidden, you can consider placing them in a separate section.

  • I couldn't locate any policies; please make sure to include them for transparency and trustworthiness.
  • Ensure consistency in thumbnail images and the second hover image. Consider adding images of models wearing the products for better visualization.

2. Product page
I will take this page as a sample https://71307f-b4.myshopify.com/products/copy-of-dog-groomers-embroidered-soft-shell-gilet-for-men?v...

  • You've done well by including product features in the title; it's great for SEO.
  • There's an issue with color variants not updating the image when selected; review your settings. Additionally, consider using color swatches to display variants more effectively.

  • The product description seems a bit lengthy; you can optimize it by using images or implementing a dropdown element. Also, consider adding a pop-up size guide near the size selection for convenience.
  • I suggest adding a service such as chat support or providing contact information for users seeking assistance. Providing sufficient information for users to overcome any purchasing barriers will benefit your store greatly. 

You can take this as an example

In summary, having lots of helpful info and making it easy for users to find what they're looking for from your site will make their shopping experience better and boost the chances of them buying something from your site.

Hope my suggestions will be helful to you!

Cheers, 

Garcia

Sticky header is recommended, as it makes it easy for the user to directly jump to the menu at any point of time while they are navigating through the Site. Other significant observations for store optimization are as follows:

 

  1. The default search landing page is a bit off, I mean it's empty. You can show products on that page as well by simply updating the default search on the website with different search solutions.
  2. Put "Secured and trusted checkout with" in your footer.
  3. Taking someone to the cart is a challenge. So to make them buy from your site, add a longer product description as it leads to better SEO ranking in Google search. Ref article from Shopify
  4. Add a Contact Us page, add email address, phone number, and contact form for the visitors.
  5. You can add social media links, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram on the site footer.
  6. Finally, I would also recommend you to try Sparq product filters and search to replace the default search on your store, this app allows advanced custom tag product filters for collection pages, synonyms, spelling correction, and other such features. Visitors with the search are high-intent users and their conversion rate is higher than normal users. Check out the features live here.

 

I hope you find these suggestions helpful in enhancing your store's performance and providing an improved experience for your customers.
