Thread: New OVEREADY website

  1. #1

    Default New OVEREADY website

    Announcement


    We are switching to a new web site, the transition will go like so:


    1) keep old site on the main domain: http://oveready.com


    2) establish new site on a temporary domain: http://overready.com


    3) spend a week kicking the tires and confirming functions (now)


    4) redirect the main domain over to the new site as well


    5) close the old site/server


    Things you can try on our temporary site:

    Visit your account page: http://www.overready.com/my-account/
    Buy BOSS Flashlights with our new flashlight builder
    Shop around and add things to your cart
    Test the new checkout
    Add items to your wishlist
    Test our new mobile skin

    Notes
    continue placing orders on the old site until the main domain is switched over
    quantities are fake. Items you see with stock that were out of stock are still out of stock
    payment gateways are in test mode so you can check out without your real info
    if your password doesn't work, request a password reset
    order history is only through october, november/december will be imported next week
    reply to this thread with any questions/concerns/issues

    I tried logging in and it's telling me my account can't be found, this would make my wife very happy.

    Beautiful accomplishment.

    The Big Sales black box on the left has what appears to have grey for the copy. Since we keep our device display brightness down, it is rather hard to read the grey letters on the black background. Not a big deal; was just trying to come up with something to suggest for improvement. The site really does look good. Go Overready!

    Wondering how many people will order their dream flashlights on this new temporary transition website?

    Found out I have ordered over 19 times from Oveready since December 2013, for a total of $1789. Worth every dollar no question, no hesitation. But will not be volunteering that information to my wife. One beauty of Oveready is that a person can do the a la carte thing stretched out over months/years, if desired.

    Typing in the address bar overready.com directly, revealed an e scout head purchase in the cart. I deleted it and successfully logged in again.

    One time my wife asked how much an Oveready flashlight that was in my hand cost. After telling her it was over $300 she never asked again.

    Turns out I have spent about $37 a month on Oveready niceties over the past 4 years. Well, since I pay about $14 a month on cellular service (Republic Wireless) then I figure it comes out even. Except the Oveready stuff could be sold, or continue to be used, or handed down...

    Bilmey, you've been busy Dan.
    The new site looks great. The old one was fine, but this seems more accessable.
    Another thumbs down for the Sale Box - seriously can't read the text especially using F.lux.

    Can we add items to our wishlist by now? It's good to be able to do so, as some folks like to surf here and there, add something, then add more later... until ready for a full cart.

    New site looks good.

    When I go to the new domain now, I still have a notice at the top stating that it is a demo site and that orders will not be fulfilled. I assume that’s a leftover from testing and the new site is where we should be placing orders now, correct?

    Just wondering if you are on the oveready.com site (without the extra 'r' in the address) and not overready (demo site)

    Tried oveready.com (with just one 'r') on my cheapo rinkydink cell phone this morning; worked fine searching products.

    I think I get it now... I didn’t understand that the ‘double R’ site was only for testing, I thought it would become the actual new website once the testing period was over.

    Real nice work, easy to use, nice layout with the fantastic pics per usual. Top job!

    Sorry for the confusion. We own both domains and RR usually forwards but became its own (test & preview) site during the transition. With R fully switched over, RR again redirects to R.

    Still cleaning up dust etc on the new site but its working!

    The site does have a nice easy look, but I miss the white cerakote light on the front page! Always made me want one...

    I was just poking around the website and I noticed that most of the moddoolar line lists the country of manufacture as China. Just curious if this is a change in the manufacturing operation or just a website error.
    Hello darkness my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again...
    I liked neutral tints before they were cool.

    The Delrin tailcaps are listed as made in China as well.

    One thing missed on the old website was the number of items in stock for each product. Sometimes that would sway a buying decision.

    I´m trying to order a BOSS 35 Titanium, not working out unfortunatelly.

    Availability says "In Stock" but not matter what I choose (tried 35, 70 and combo) after putting it in the cart and going to checkout it always says "Sorry, we do not have enough "Titanium XPL High Intensity Red 4000K" [that´s the only option right now] in stock to fulfill your order right now. Please try again in 30 minutes or edit your cart and try again. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.". I already tried it an hour later (twice).

    Anything wrong or is it not available anymore and the website not really working in regards to how many are available or not?

    Might get a quicker response by sending Dan an email.

    That is a website conversion error, we are not changing any of our manufacotring. Should have it fixed next week. Thank you for the report!

    I’ll see if we can restore that!

    Just FYI ... on one of the new titanium BOSS pages, they are referred to (confusingly, or in error) as "Select your copper BOSS"
    ... is the archimedes peak

    Thanks for the bug reports everyone. We are continuing to squash them while making other changes. Should have this all sorted and improved as the year unfolds!

    I'm unable to order from the new website. It says there is no shipping method available.

    Do I have to create a new account or can you fix that ?

    Don't want to miss the sale this evening.

    Thank you.
