    Can I get some feedback for my site?

    www.techotoys.com

    Do you think it is too simple? My friend thinks there needs to be more content on the main page.

    The USB missile launcher is overpriced.

    Also, I would agree with your friend. too plain and you start to wonder if this is a legit site. Add some color or possibly textures

    I see what you mean regarding the legitimacy of the site. I was hoping the GoDaddy SSL icon would help put people at ease. I looked at lots of other templates, but those all seemed to work better with sites that had lots of products and categories.

    Can you show me a site that you think is good that uses oscommerce?

    I love clean templates and tbh that looks really good IMO, nice and simple.

    I think the gray background throws me off from trusting it. I think most, if not all online stores are using a white background. Looks much more inviting.

    Yea thats true about the background. The gray was from the template. I'll photoshop it white to see what it will look like.

    Also in regards to the price, I know it is more expensive than other sites, but I plan to offer coupons that make it equal or less than others. Do you think I should go that route or just lower the prices and not offer coupons?

    Maybe just lower the prices so that they are not as much overpriced w/o coupons and lower the discount rate of your coupon. If you have it set up the other way you'll turn down customers with no coupons.

    I'm with the nub.

    I like it.

    I'd add some rollovers to the left navigation and stuff like that.. make it a bit more eye-catching and less "static html template" looking.. but I like it overall.
