About the Shopify business

I started a coffee company in 2019. And set up a Shopify webshop to sell my coffee to customers. As my target market was very nitch, I used social media to promote my product and made sales through Shopify. Everything was integrated smoothly and easy to operate. There are a few challenges around shipping and communication as I am running by myself, but definitely durable. Shopify gave me a great opportunity to start my company and sell without any prior knowledge to IT.

Describe the experience

I am very happy with Blockshop. The base design is simple, beautiful and easy to set up.Luckily I didn’t need to have a huge product catalogue or complex features in my website, this theme was more than adequate. The most I love about this theme is clean elegant design and it was easy to make a cool website with a handful of nice photos.

Feedback or suggestions for the theme developer

I am pretty happy with what it is to be honest. But it will be cool to see more examples of what else I can improve through looking at other websites who is suing the same theme and doing very well.

About the Shopify business

We sell 10 artisan chocolate bar flavours in our Comfort collection, and have Custom seasonal/holiday flavours as well. We have corporate or private (online and in-person) chocolate tasting experiences. Our target market includes mostly upper middle class, women or financial corporations looking to team build or looking for customer appreciation. We launched about 4 years ago. We are very seasonal and holiday oriented.

Describe the experience

Blockshop. We've been happy to a point with theme. The checkout seemed to cause the most problems and required the most research online to then manually "fix" the best I could. The default place people returned to after they chose a product was the "all products" page instead of just returning to the previous page they where buying from or the collection page they were on. The defaults for payment options should be changed so that it's easy/easier for the website's owner to choose what people see.

Feedback or suggestions for the theme developer

Mostly, concentrate on having the default options for the checkout more readily available to the website administrator.

About the Shopify business

My Shopify business is an e-commerce site where I sell hand-made, vegan and cruelty-free lipglosses, skincare, and more specifically, lip care products. I also have used this website to sell an exclusive line of merch for my Twitch viewers. While I have put this site on the back burner this year as I started a new career, the site still gets some traffic and is doing fairly well for no posts/advertisements. The target market is women around 14-30 years old. It was launched in 2019 so it is still fairly new.

Describe the experience

I really love the theme I am using as it gives me the ability to personalize and tweak the website to my liking with several separate options. It has absolutely met my expectations as I was looking for a minimalistic, clean website theme and it provides that! One piece of advice I would give to others considering to use it/buy it would be to do a little more research on the countless abilities/perks of the theme that I did not utilize in the initial phase of building the website.

Feedback or suggestions for the theme developer

One suggestion I have for the developer (or any developer for that matter) would be to add a bit more to the initial tutorial of utilizing the theme. For example, while finishing a section of the website building using the theme, a tip pop-up window could say, “looks like you don’t have a bottom of the page footnote, do you want to add your social handles to the bottom using our template?” This would be super easy to check off all of the requirements or benefits of this theme!
