OK we’ll take a look around the BedStore, starting at the homepage. On first glance it’s obvious what they specialize in and have a great looking site with simple navigation. visitors are immediately presented with the latest offers which are shown on the main homepage banner. Today they have 10% off all bed and mattress bundles but these discounts do change on a weekly basis. There’s also a preview of the latest sales deals offering up to 50% off items.
Ok, we move on, let’s check out the main product menu bar. All the main product categories are mentioned including bed frames, beds, mattresses, furniture and sale. All the menu items expand to a sub menu apart from the sale link. The sub menu lists all the product cats in detail, giving users a quick path to the products they need. Scrolling down the page shoppers can also find product type banners with starting prices if you like images rather than just links.
Now we’ll look at a test purchase just to see how easy or difficult it is to buy a typical product from BedStore. Let’s buy a guest bed. OK clicking on the guest bed link on the sub menu bar takes me to the main guest bed page with left hand links to choose by bed type, colour or size. I’m going for a Johansson Fabric Sofa Bed in Grey priced at £199.99 which was chosen using a price low to high filter. At the product detail page you can see a full description with pricing and product options such as size and quantity.
I will now add the product to the basket and see how we can use a voucher code to knock the price down. The voucher code entry box can be found at the checkout stage just below the product description. As it happens at the time of writing we have a 5% off code that it valid on guest beds. Applying the cost has knocked off £10 from the cost of the bed taking it to £189.99.
Paying is easy with Paypal or card options, Paypal are undoubtedly the quickest and most people have an account these days. Delivery is free for all products at the time of writing including smaller Items such as pillows and accessories, standard Items including bed frames and mattresses plus large Furniture. So no added cost, the price is what you pay. Free delivery is to mainland UK postcodes only with a typical shipping time of 2 to 5 days. Unfortunately next day delivery is not available.
