Yes. Almost forgot. Submit a PSD template first. Do not code it. If it will be accepted – you know you’re on the right track.
Thank you so much! Of course it’s pity, but I understand you and I hope, that your words are the same, as reviewer’s minds :)

Well, it’s how we got here. And thanks for clarification about OpenCart – never worked with it. Sorry my ignorance.

BTW, which CMS/engine is that? If it’s self-made I’m not 100% sure it suits ThemeForest.

It’s OpenCart ;)

It’s not a bad template but it’s not been refined, it’s like comparing a lada to a Ferrari

The lada looks ok and gets you from a – b

The Ferrari looks exceptional with awesome curves and a lot of design love gone into it

You need to make your template a Ferrari
  • Lada tuned by a good custom shop.

And you can’t drive a Ferrari in Kiev – you’ll loose all bumpers. Actually my LandRover is barely coping :) There’s even a city legend about a guy who gets his Ferrari on the evacuator to the city center; drives around a bit; and gets it back on the evacuator :D

Hello mate,
I know what you feel – I’ve been in your shoes. But things does not work here the way you used to think.

Your template is messy; it ignores basic design principles like visual hierarchy, balanced spacings and typography. This is a common problem among designers from a former USSR.

When you look at it it’s like OK from a first glance.. but when you start to look closer – it’s a mess. It’s like the girls on high heels and fancy clothes in the subway. I think you’ll understand what I mean.
Thanks for your reply, Dream-Theme! I’m trying to understand your answer, but I’m not sure if its clear for me. Could you give an example of the specific problem in my template (I mean a little more concretely), and the way it should be fixed in your opinion?

The problem is you don’t even consider problem as a problem :D Again, for the beginning: visual hierarchy / spacing and typography. When previous is checked – latest web design trends. (And stop reading articles in russian – most of them are outdated.)

You took a classical shop layout from beginning of 2000th added fanciness (big images of Apple stuff and candy main background) and voila – hard reject. Look at top sellers around here, look at their pages layouts – they are miles away. Darn, take a look at our (Dream-Theme) portfolio and see how our design evolved.

The sooner you understand that “western” design school is different from “ours” – the sooner you’ll start to sell stuff here.

rMBP but with more RAM (it is hard-soldered to motherboard and there’s no much chance expanding it). You wont regret it. Switching from Windows to Mac OS was the biggest event in my “computer life”. Actually I’m opening my high-end Sony VAIO with slight disgust now (and do so only in case I need to test something in old IE).

Not an official reply, but looking back at my statements it seems the referred users no longer exist on the marketplace. This makes me think the referred users may have been banned for some reason (illegal purchase maybe?), so their referral cut was taken back.

Thanks for explaining.

Sounds weird though: such mechanism sounds logical in case author purchases his own items using a referral link to boost his sales number/rating. But we’re not doing such things.
