New GHI Catalog


#1

Hello Community!

In the process of supporting you better, and a part of the 2011 plans, we will be moving all product-ordering to the main GHI website. The www.TinyCLR.com website will still be the community website.

Please take a look at the new catalog. Please let us know if you have any concerns or if you find any bugs :slight_smile:
http://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog

The catalog is fully functional if you want to buy something :wink:

I like it. Much more accessible than the old store.


#3

Very nice one !!! :clap: :clap: :clap: (as usual, but who need to say ?)

Some very small things :
[ulist]
[li]missing/bad “Comparison chart” link[/li]
[li]in the download tab, about the Beginner’s guide, maybe a link to the wiki page would be better than the english .pdf now since there are many translations available[/li]
[li]I would also add a link to Fezzer (even if it’s still in beta) to better help beginners and more experienced people to find code already done/tested for their needs. This could be in the Downloads tab.[/li]
[/ulist]

As you can see, there’s not much to add, on my side.

All in all, it’s a very good catalog. Like its content :wink:


#4

Very nice.

Links from the shopping cart back to the product pages seems to be broken.


#5

Good start for beta!

One thing that I would like to see is the price when you look at multiple items.

Something like in the attached image.


#6

The sale prices on items like the Serial LCD are not reflected in the shopping cart yet.


#7

@ Architect : +1 Very good idea !

Maybe also a direct “Add to cart” in this section, too ?
For “old customers” who already know the products, there’s no need to go to the product page to buy one. We know what we buy :wink:


#8

Wow i see a sale!!!

Like the new interface… The tinyClr website game me a lot of problem with Chrome when paging through the components.

Great work guys…


#9

We actually had it and just removed it! The point was if you see the price there then how would you know there is a volume discount?
Like this one http://ghielectronics.com/catalog#category=cat_emx&productId=128


#10

You can put:

Price
Starting at: $77.80


#11

Then why not simply (?) repeat the same information ? Normal price and volume discount price.
Or saying something like “Volume discount available” below the price ?

My (personnal) thinking in general about sites where you have to “dig” to obtain prices is that those prices are too high :wink:

Edit: which is obviously not the case here, of course :hand:


#12

I have checked other sites (sparkfun, adafruit, etc.)
Catalog view shows one price - price for one unit.
Details view shows price list based on quantity.

Seems like pretty standard approach.


#13

What is “ODM” mean? OEM & ODM…


#14

I think it is original design manufacturer (ODM)

Good explanation:


#15

Well Done!
Very shoppers’ friendly! ;D

One little comment about the image of the Graphical Display 128x64,
should it be rotated according to it actual orientation?


#16

Good point on display so it doesn’t mislead users on how the actual graphics are oriented.


#17

Really love the new catalog. I wish that the price was shown when browsing through categories, like previous user suggested.

Also, I’ll drop the prices, but that just me :D…


#18

Looks much better, much easier to find things on. However just like these forums and fezzer - google wont be able to find anything on it. The over use of AJAX is kinda sad, it’s not done in such a way that Google can browse content.

http://www.google.com.au/search?client=opera&rls=en&q=site:fezzer.com&sourceid=opera&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&channel=suggest
Those 11 links come from elsewhere, not through google finding stuff.

In addition, your SEO is pretty bad - google doesn’t look at anything after a #… so if a user is searching GHI Electronics Catalog they are fine… searching for a Domino? GHI will never come up well. Same goes for Page titles.

Looking great! 8)
