Magento Go has become a powerful eCommerce platform that enables small and emerging merchants to quickly build and launch an online store.
Recently, we had a chance to chat with Pamela Thompson of Tiny Frock Shop, the online resale fashion shop for dolls. She described her experience using aheadWorks products for Magento Go.
Q: Pamela, how long have you been running your store?
A: The shop has been online since July 2010.
Q: How did you come up with Magento platform?
A: We were using WordPress WP-Ecommerce and found it unreliable. We have many repeat customers and wanted to move to a platform that would give them the easiest and most enjoyable shopping experience. We chose Magento Go over all others for its reputation and customer support.
Q:. Why did you choose aheadWorks as a Magento extensions provider?
A: Magento Go is a great platform but they don’t provide good templates in our opinion. We tried to customize the few that are available from them and none were yielding the look we wanted. aheadWorks luckily came along just in time to offer the theme which is much more creative and design oriented than any available from Magento.
Q: What Magento Go theme have you set your eye on?
A: Our store is built using the Furniture Shop for Magento Go which has been customized to fit our needs.
Q: Did you experience any troubles customizing the appearance using the Furniture Shop theme?
We really liked the look of the Furniture Shop theme but since it was geared more toward interiors we had to customize it a bit to work with apparel and a high end fashion feel. I worked closely with your team at aheadWorks and received outstanding technical support to make the site work perfectly for our needs.
Q: In some cases a core Magento Go functionality is not enough. Did you customize Magento Go with additional extensions?
A: Yes, we also have the GoSlider extension installed on our home page to rotate our mini shop posters which feature a new trend in fashion monthly.
Q: Any last words for other Magento fellows?
A: We are proud of Tinyfrockshop.com’s professional appearance while still being able to maintain our design oriented look. Positive customers’ reviews about the improved design of our store prove that we are on the right track! aheadWorks Magento Go themes by far are better than any out there and the customer service can’t be beat. I am thrilled to have worked with you.
P.S. Such posts will be published monthly, so you still have time to drop us a note about your online store at korol @ aheadworks.com.
