Really Sexy osCommerce Shop

By | February 12, 2008

Check out this osCommerce Shop.  I think this might be the nicest design I have ever seen done with osCommerce.  It does have a couple little cosmetic things that could be done to make it nic, but overall, for design, I think it’s excellent.

What do you think?  Does your site come anywhere close to that in terms of design, layout and presentation?

    You’re right. It is a lovely site and miles away from the usual OSC look. What tells you it’s an OSC site? What gives it away?

    Lawrence – the easygerman site is a nice look – but a bit too “templatish” (if that makes sense). In other words, it looks like the templates you can buy at the likes of Template Monster. Not a bad thing of course!

    Edward – you can always tell an osCommerce shop in two ways: source code – even if it’s highly modified like the bboheme shop, you will always find the the img location of the buttons is the same. Also, you can tell by the page names – it’s using SEO Urls (one of the seo contributions).

    Thanks for your comments 😀

    Alex – the lingerie store is nice looking (with v nice models ;)) – very good! The other one is about the same. Both get 8 / 10 😉

    Alex – the lingerie store is very nice, particularly the quality of the photos. I think we all have the same issue with the template look of Os Commerce, but i believe we have all made the best out the sw. For a free platform, it is really great.

    I had my store for several months at http://www.pc-warehouse.at, but then I bought a template and it deleted my whole database. So starting from scratch. What do you think about the site sofar? Any suggestions?

    Markus – it looks nice – but it’s a template that 100s of other people are also using 🙁 What’s your thoughts on that?

    Hey,

    I have been installing OSC for weeks now, adding modules and functionality. Allthough I am used to PHP I personally think the scripting sucks. It misses some essential stuff. If it were well programmed you should not have to modify the source code to add modules. So I could not spend so much time, to develop a site design, I am currently working on a script to import and regulaary update products. One day I will have a custom made template, but it is also a money issue. I just thought the blueish style looks nice, but everything I saw is better than the standard template…

    Markus – I completely agree with you. But using a template is not the way to go (in my opinion) – but it is better than using standard osCommerce!
