Please give me your feedback on this site: http://www.footbagshop.com

The site has been online since 1999, running on OScommerce until just a few weeks ago. Magento gives us much more control over product and order management then OScommerce ever could.

A couple features of the site:
- Quick View on the category page lets people see vital specs and photos without having to click into each product page
- Inventory status bar shows approximate inventory level of product
- Recently viewed products shows photo of product instead of text link, making it easier to go back through past products
- Reviews are integrated directly into the product view page
- We used OScommerce import module to transfer over all user accounts and past orders

Since launching the new site, sales are up 50%!

Looks good - congrats on the increased sales too!

Site has a nice professional look to it.

I like the pic in the footer - real nice.

Pages load nice, I noticed the header and side bars dont reload each time. How about that?

Do you mind sharing how you got the picture in the recently viewed products or the reviews on the product page? That’s sweet.

The only thing I would change, if it were my shop would be to put the newsletter subscription up top somewhere, though I’m not sure how many people you have subscribing now.

Best of luck!
