Hi tarandip,

Sorry for the late feedback. No hard feelings ya? Juz jotting down my first impression of your online site...

1) Too few varieties. More likely to be forgotten unless that very few pieces you have are truly unique.
2) Any reason why your prices in a shade of lighter grey?
3) Is 'blogroll' necessary? High chance of losing customers because when they enter into those websites, if stuffs are more interesting over there, it's good-bye to your website.
4) "the designer", not "the desginer"
5) Is handling charges ($0.30 to $1.50) justifiable? Always put yourself in the customer's shoes, if you buy a pair if earring and
6) If yours is a new site, consider offering some promotional discount.


Overall looks plain (other than the top header Candysnatchers with some really nice floral graphic which attracted me but only for a split second). Recommend you go into bagoflove.com and take a look at their website. I not related to them but stumble upon their website once upon a time and I'm still a frequent viewer.

Ignore the above, was half way through typing and hit the wrong button. See below for feedback.


Hi tarandip,

Sorry for the late feedback. Juz jotting down my first impression of your online site... No hard feelings ya?

1) Too few products/varieties. A website that is more likely to be forgotten (too many blogs, online sites, ebay stores these days!) unless that very few pieces you have are truly unique, one of a kind.
2) Any reason why your prices in a shade of lighter grey?
3) Is 'blogroll' necessary? High chance of losing customers because when they enter into those websites, if stuffs are more interesting over there, it's good-bye to your website. Did I not see a mediacorp artiste in one of those sites?
4) "the designer", not "the desginer"
5) Is handling charges ($0.30 to $1.50) justifiable? If these represent required expenditure on your part before you can dispatch the item(s) to your customer, then it will help to explain to customer what this handling charges cover, say, to cover bubble wrap, etc etc. Otherwise, out of 10 customers, probably 9 will say "huh? got handling charges, then dont want lah, so expensive!".
6) If yours is a new site, consider offering some promotional discounts. Already it is difficult to attract hits, so for those who visited your website, don't you think there should be at least something to attract them eg free postage for 1st purchase, buy 2 get 1 free, etc.


Overall looks cool but plain because of the choice of color. The top header Candysnatchers with some really nice floral graphic... well that attracted me but only for a split second. Recommend you go into bagoflove.com and take a look at their website. I not related to them but stumble upon their website once upon a time and I'm still a frequent viewer. Look at how they have photographed their accessories. Nice job.

maybe you should try visiting http://candysnatchers.wordpress.com/ .

oh yeah tarandip, maybe getting your customers feedback through your website is a big plus. So your newer customer are much convinced to buy from you. Insert online tag boards would be the finest / neat way.

neway I am new here... so hi guys =)

Thanks cripperz but I thought the link you provided was tarandip's old blog which I have already commented above. Thought the 2 links she provided was to show me the different themes but I can't seem to access them. Letz wait for her to return... maybe busy with study...
