The idea’s great, and your products seem reasonably priced.
If I were to want to order a case of soda from you though, I’d worry about the shipping cost. Since most of your products seem to be canned and heavy, why not consider setting up a place in Taipei where people can pick things up? Doesn’t have to be a storefront, but just somewhere for people to pick things up and pay for them at the same time. You could drive the previous week’s orders up on certain days of the week and leave the stuff at a friend’s house for people to pick up, even. The drive up and back is probably equal or less than the time you’d spend packaging and mailing each individual order.
That’s of course, if you have access to a car. If not, um. never mind.
Not to be offensive or anything, since I’m sure you spent a lot of time on it, but I find your website kind of intimidating. Everytime I click on a different link, it leads me to a completely different-looking webpage.
It’s be less confusing/distracting if you mainly stuck with one layout, like the layout on Taiwan Information. A heading and sidebar for every page so you can move around the site without having to scroll to the bottom or hit the back button sometimes. And decrease the font size so we don’t have to scroll up and down to read just a little bit of text.
Perhaps you could add a price for buying a case or a box of stuff instead of selling everything per item. Like :
Nature Valley Trail Mix Bars.
These make regular granola bars look like candy. Get real, get these today.
NT$12 per bar, NT$570 for box of 48
It would encourage people to buy whole boxes of things too.
You also don’t have to cram everything you can possibly think of onto your website, since you are mainly focusing on being an E-store that sells stuff, right? So why would you want to distract your potential customer by having them click on infoontaiwan/english lessons/chinese lessons/free motivational wallpaper/famous quotes/etc?
Tempted by the root beer, but not by the amount it would cost to ship it,
