Hi

Just launched my site - www.component-warehouse.co.uk

Wasn’t ideally ready for launch, but my VirtueMart site went badly wrong so I put it up early. Just need to sort out the Royal Mail bits now, as well as backorders.

Alex

Thats a great looking site matey !

We’ve been live on Magento for about 6 months now. At Great-save.com we sell an extensive range of football equipment, primarily for goalkeepers. Previously we used an ASP e-commerce solution called Cactushop, but the switch to Magento really means we can take the business to the next level.

Just gone live. Needs a little tweaking still, but we’re up. Selling electric scooters, at http://zepii.com/index.php/

We started out by buying a template from Template Monster, which included a Flash slideshow on the front page. It looked great in the example, but we found it didn’t work with the UK extension in some browsers, so we had to scrap it and start over. TM still haven’t figured out what the issue was, and we couldn’t wait as we had offline advertising and press coming out.

My thoughts: Magento seems to work fine, but getting your head round how it works is an uphill task. The manual only covers the very basics and is not detailed enough. There ought to be more proper support for the free edition, instead of leaving us to figure it all out between us. This is the only let down in my book. I would have been prepared to pay for a cheap version (as opposed to free), if it meant some decent support that allowed us to get up and running faster.

We have done couple of other sites as well but they are US based. No point showing them off here smile

Any comments on the websites?

Hi all. This is the Magento Site I created for a UK Based Company.

The Store is maintained on a daily basis by my Company “Hex UK”.

I try to enrich the Store each visit by seeking out new Modules which ensure the public keep returning to see the Store.

Hope you like it ...

P.S I have created 3 spin off “Multi Stores” and posted the links for those also. Feedback either positive OR negative is ALWAYS welcome. Feedback is what moves me and my Businesses further each day.

ualstore.co.uk Electronic Products

infresco.co.uk Outdoor Heating
envirostat.eu Frost Protection
hecontrols.co.uk The Sister Company

Just launched Mad Dogs and Englishmen a furniture and interiors store in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. It has almost 3,000 products so there’s still a way to go in terms of product descriptions, but I’ve been very impressed with Magento.

Hi the sites I am looking at might or might not be using magento . How do I find out. I think it looks good, but i am new to this so am not really sure. The site is www.urbanara.co.uk for the company urbanara. I think their ecommerce model looks nice.

Any ideas.
