hello there, to level the field I’d suggest getting rid of the ‘sort by sales’ filter

what do you think?

Hi Michelle!

In the ‘similar items’ on AJ item page often there’s 1 user taking over the entire similar items section. Sometimes I click on those items and go round and round between two authors. Can it be modified so that only 1 item per user is shown?

Regarding the “similar items” feature:

“Unfortunately we cannot accept your feature. Though there may not be anything wrong with your suggestion, [...] there is currently not enough demand from customers for this type of feature.”

(I thought I’d drop a joke here :P:) )

As a very longtime top buyer, I’d request:

1) Search RESULTS: Let us see MORE Items at a glance, not just 20-30. Other stock marketplaces let users browse 100 to 300+ items on a page; that’s important. You kill sales if you make buyers click lots of pages to see search results. Have a drop-down box that lets us “display (n) items”, so for those with slow connections they can keep down to 20-30 items, for us power users in the US etc let us see 100+ items as result.

2) Totally agree don’t show competing results “similar” from competitors, on individual item pages; this isn’t Amazon, that hurts your authors. A lot. Sales is all about narrow focus, not cross-selling others.

3) Search needs to have more checkbox options (like any other stock royalty free photo site has, look carefully at them). Us veteran buyers expect detailed options in search. With the massive number of projects/resources here, that’s even more critical for sales success.

Nice to see something’s finally being done about search all these years late… better late than never. Just make it a world-class effort (see other top stock photo sites for examples of how search should be done).

To success,

ken

4) better more relevant results needed, meaning better tagging, which is a big effort with all these files. things like color theme, specific functions, “show compatible with wordpress 3.6 and above only” for themeforest/codecanyon level results etc.

5) On videohive make sure to have auto-video mouseover play previews like every other template site in the world (except vh) has.

You guys are making enough $$ to have better search here, please speed it up, implementation.

Nice to see something’s finally being done about search all these years late… better late than never. Just make it a world-class effort (see other top stock photo sites for examples of how search should be done).

Especially important, to display 100-200+ results on a single page from search, not just a few dozen.

Not sure if this has been considered, but please do not implement a javascript “load more” feature where new content is dynamically loaded when user scrolls to bottom. Just my 2c
