So, I spent another afternoon completely revising the postal charges on my site - all because the German Post revised theirs. Depending on the weight of the package, I have now created six different shipping rates for inland, EU and international. For safety's sake I put in the option of manually adjusting the rate, should something go awry during the ordering process, plus taking the four different shipping zones for int'l into consideration. I feel like I'm about ready to start working at the post office now that I've been studying their rates so intensely!
Remember I talked about putting up a photo of me on my 'about page'? Well, the photos didn't work out. The lighting on that day was completely off, and on that particular day I remember feeling under the weather...funny how that really shows in the pictures. No amount of smiling helped! They are just urggh.
So for the time being I'm putting up a cropped version of my birthday pic.
By now I've realized that a website is an ongoing process. There is an endless amount of stuff you can do with it. So many applications, extenstions etc. I'm just glad I figured out how to make my URL's search-engine friendly! I haven't uploaded all of my bags in the shop section yet and there are a few translations missing here and there, but the main text is all finished. The images of the products differ...still working on finding a consistent sizing for all.
On a positive note, I have added a rate and review function to each product image. You can also ask a question on each product, as well as suggest it to friends via email. I dearly hope I'll have my site up by the end of August, after all I've been paying my monthly hosting fee since January. Now that really bugs me!
So, while I'm putting the finishing touches to my site I also need to get working on two custom orders I received last week. Aarrrgh. I need more hours in the day!
