Hey all,

I’m looking for some help from a WooCommerce expert. I’m wanting to preview my email notification templates that WooCommerce generates. Is there are way of doing this? I’m aware you can preview the header, footer and some generic content inside the WooCommerce email settings, but you can’t preview anything else.

Any help would be great!

My advice would be to look at the marketplace and position your concept within it. Does it stand out enough? Would you buy it yourself?

Yeah I would look at seeing what you can offer a user that’s a little more unique.

What you’ve done looks great, really nice and slick, but there are so many themes on the marketplace like this you’re going to struggle to get it approved.

The look and feel is great, I would maybe look at the structure of the site. Column based layouts are everywhere, that footer is just like most footers around – is there anything you can do to mix it up??

My first impression is that it looks a lot of like a lot of the other themes on the marketplace. But as it’s a PSD template it might get approved!

It’s a better response than what a lot of people get… so I would see that as a good sign! I like the theme, it’s not overly animated, it’s got a nice sprinkling of neat functionality. I reckon it could sell well.

I tend to agree with the typography. The way you’ve applied it is very nice, but the colour lets it down. If it was a punchier colour, it might improve it straight away.

The font choice, colour scheme, visual effects and animation are all quite poor.

My advice would be to return to the drawing board. Create some visuals first, post them on here for people to critique and hopefully, with some positive feedback, you’ll build something that might stand a chance of being approved.

There might be, why don’t you take a look on the marketplace yourself?

It’s a very nice looking theme but for me, straight off the bat, there’s too much animation. There’s literally no need to have a different animation for each separate panel of any one page. It makes the homepage disjointed and the whole experience a nightmare.

Secondly I would look at the color scheme. The color scheme is very Google and you’ve also used Roboto – it’s all very Google-looking.

Did you do some research of the marketplace before you started work on your theme? It’s very similar to a lot of other themes already available.

The hard rejection may be because your theme offers very little variation on what already exists on the marketplace.

Visually the site is very nice though.

I really like this theme, it’s far better than other examples users post up in this section of the forum who are confused as to why they’ve not been accepted.

There are a lot of similar themes on the marketplace, you could add in some unique elements to make the theme stand out.

Maybe a starting point could be the font you’ve chosen to use. It might be the case that the user can switch fonts. But as a starting point it might be worth changing it. Open Sans is all over the marketplace like a rash – it’s everywhere! A different font could get it over the line.

Hey, I think it could be one of the reasons behind the rejection. What you need to think about is that not all potential buyers will have a knowledge of HTML/CSS so you need to make your theme as user friendly as possible.
