Hi! My Shopify Template was rejected for this reason:
I think this template still needs a bit of work before being accepted on ThemeForest. My primary issue is with the the navigation area – it seems unprofessional. As I’m sure you know, with e-commerce templates, it’s extremely important that they look as professional as possible. I’m not seeing that here. Consider revising the entire navigation section, and a few other areas that are coming up short.
Could someone give me advices how to improve it? Do I need to think about complete navigation redesign? All comments are appreciated!
To be honest – i’m not sure as to what you are to improve. It looks pretty good as it is.
If anything i would move the nav under the header as it’s a bit more obvious as a nav there and not a sidebar like item.
Note how this template doesn’t scream “e-commerce.”
I’d agree. It looks rather like portfolio site, but a nice one.
I would agree that it looks pretty good, but you may want to move the navigation so it’s a bit more obvious. Navigation in the sidebar like that is usually reserved for subpages and not the main nav.
It still doesnt look like there is anything to buy/sell from the front page. I suggest adding some products to the front page along with prices so its more obvious its an ecommerce template.
A couple of things:
1) I still don’t think the navigation section is in the right place.
2) As I stated last week, this template doesn’t scream “ecommerce”. Take ThemeForest, for example; the front page is covered with items – not long paragraphs of text that people won’t read.
Pay attention to popular e-commerce sites – specifically the home page.
Yeah I would have to completely agree with Jeffrey on this one. It doesn’t feel like a store at all.
I don’t know about everyone else here but I like the modified version. It may not “scream ecommerce” as Jeffrey mentioned but based on aesthetics and functionality, I believe it deserves a chance. At least it’s something different than a traditional ecommerce site and people might go for this look. Just my two cents.
