    No, everything looks like hundreds of Wordpress themes.

    It's convenient, I'll give it that much.

    I don't mean "it's convenient" as in "this will help budding young web designers find the themes of their choice to make their lives easier and spawn a generation of dazzling website". I mean "it's convenient" as in "you were nice enough to let us know that you used a TemplateMonster theme for your site and left several references to it within the outputted HTML so that I wouldn't have to guess at what it was." It was also nice of you to offer a discount on it.

    Mind you, this is where things become inconvenient. Your site uses frames, so I can't link to the template on your site to get you that sweet, sweet commish. Well...I could, but I really don't want to because silly rabbit, template tricks are for script kids.

    Maybe I didn't ask it properly, my point being, is it simple enough for users to get to a template?
    It's a template monster theme, selling template monster templates with discounts, I didn't ask for conspiracy detective works, just "is it nice". No one said it's supposed to be different from any other old shopping website.

    And like most of the design community, you missed the point completely (I'm a developer and not a designer, by the way). It doesn't matter if it's "nice" for three reasons:

    1. "Nice" is subjective.

    2. I'm going to quote Barack Obama, but unlike him I'm going to use the quote in the correct context: you didn't build that. You didn't build the templates that you're selling (and before you go down the "retailers don't build their products" road, I'm about to get to that). You didn't build any of the marketing materials for the templates that you're selling. You didn't write any original content to support anything you're selling. You just slapassed some templates onto a WooCommerce site with another template and called it a day. That's lazy, and it shows.

    You can resell other people's products and services successfully as long as you do it in your own words using your own materials and with your own knowledge of the products and services. You've done none of that.

    3. An important component of design is originality. If you're not doing something unique or original, or at the very least presenting it in a unique or original manner. then you may as well not bother. Your site is a thin affiliate site, and it's painfully obvious. It doesn't require "conspiracy detective works" to figure that out, either.

    Is it "nice"? It doesn't matter. It's not yours.

    It's exactly that: an affiliate site, selling with a 10% discount. Never said it was Mine.
    And it is not WooCommerce, developer.

    That's a whole lot of Woocommerce-related CSS for a non-Woocommerce site, don't you think?

    As far as whether it's "yours" or not, here's the thing: you asked us for a review. When you ask someone for a review of web design work, the express implication is that it's your work. You're not going to ask us to review amazon.com's layout because there's nothing to be gained from such an exercise. You asked us to review your site because you want to resell these templates. That's what you did, and there's no point in trying to deny that or come up with some bizarre linguistic gymnastics to attempt to prove otherwise.

    Now, the smart thing to do would be to give this silly site idea of yours up now before you waste any more time on it and generate nothing, unless you're doing this as a learning exercise...in which case you have just been taught something. If you're not doing this as a learning exercise, find another site to build and build it yourself.

    I thought the site was fairly good. It is easy to navigate and easy to find what someone would be looking for. I would say easier to use than some of the sites I have been on providing similar products.
