Our target is to serve the C2C market and make shipping less painless as well as eliminate some of the risk on the buyer's side. With the current climate for buying goods online companies serving the space are at risk for opening themselves up to scams like this one by buyers. The reality for anyone accepting credit cards is that you're at the mercy of the buyer.
But I won't, because I don't want to sign up to be able to window shop...
and I stopped looking at your site after about 15 seconds as a result.
a) Link either doesn't exist on main page or isn't immediately apparent enough.
b) Consider this page - http://www.boostclassifieds.com.au. Today is the first time I've seen it - visually it looks horrible and potentially untrustworthy. If I may say so, your site looks freakin' incredible. But on their site, the first thing my eyes land on is a gigantic list of categories. It takes me FIVE seconds to find the link to "turbos and superchargers" and one click later I'm where I want to be, looking at what I want to buy. Which I guarantee I'm doing right now - in fact I've spotted a couple of GT280RS that look pretty good to me.
I had to navigate through so much shit to find the search page and look for turbos on your site that I didn't actually want to bother.
I'm having trouble with the balancing act. I definitely need to improve the searchability of the site. At the same time if I put everything front and center it'll become pretty apparent that we don't have many listings yet. Will that just turn people away? I'm not sure yet, I don't have the data to say.
I'll think more on this.
But so will a site with no listings at all, as yours appears.
The first thing you should do is split the site: A big "For sellers" / "For buyers" right at the start, then each group can navigate their own section. Perhaps a third button to talk about what you do, what's special about your site.
The site has so much style it's unusable. And what's with the B/W photos? They look horrible. Even on the detail page I have to mouse over it to get color.
People go a site like yours to get stuff done, not to chill out and look around.
P.S. I apologize if I sound too harsh, I'm not always good at giving criticism online.
All they have to do is put it in a box and drop the package off.
This also means that we can eventually grow each seller's addressable market within our system as we'll handle cross-border shipping on their behalf.
