Hi Annmarie :-) What a clever idea!
I have two thoughts: The first is trivial, and needs only a grammar change. On your order page, you have:
"All orders receive $5.99 shipping via USPS Priority mail (includes handling)."
That doesn`t actually make sense, so just change the sentence
structure. Do you mean all orders receive $5.99 "off" or that all
orders ship for $5.99 flat rate?
The more difficult problem is consistency in look and feel. When I go
to that order page, I lose the standard tabs along the top. Granted, by
that time I probably already have looked around.
However; another probable scenario is what I did. I wanted to know how
much is the product before I spent too much time on the site. I didn`t
see the price on the home page, so had to click the Order button. Then
I couldn`t see the navigation tabs and had to click "Home" to get them
Why not just put the price right there in your content, on the home
page? It`s a well-done page, tells me exactly what you`re selling, and
tells me how it`ll help my life. It`s a good "sale letter" type of
thing, and I see no reason why you can`t just include the price, like a
catalog page in a mail-order catalog.
Other than that, I don`t see a whole lot to change. :-)
Actually, thinking about it, there is one more thing. This has been
coming up lately in our own experience of online shopping, and it`s the
idea of how large a package are we looking at? You could add a
paragraph at the bottom of the order form that describes the package
(or even a photo).
The reason being that we live in an apartment with a slot-type box in a
wall along with other mailboxes. By having a sense of how big is the
package, we know that we`ll either have to catch the mail carrier, or
we can plan to go pick up the box at the post office.
