Default Help us test our new web store

We all know that the current Van's Aircraft online store is - well - let's just call it lacking. We've been working on a complete store replacement and are getting close to go-live planning.

While there are still a few features to complete and a list of bugs/issues to eradicate, the end of the project is in sight.

Anyone who is interested in participating in our formal testing effort is welcome to send me an email (media@vansaircraft.com) to let me know. We have a handful of customers who have already tested (and are continuing to do so) and would welcome a few more as we continue to make changes and as we get closer to our initial release.

So - if you're interested in setting aside some time for testing and providing feedback, please let me know! I only ask that those who volunteer be willing to actively use the site and provide the feedback we need to make this project successful in the end (so there's some commitment and it's not a general access invitation for people who are merely curious - that phase will come later). For those who help us reach the finish line, I'll be sure to send some form of "thank you" gift when all is said and done, of course!

I can't commit the time right now to actively test it, but the screen shots show a lot of improvement and work. Love how you are showing photos of things that heretofore were only on "the list". Looks like it will be awesome!

Pretty much everything on The List (and then some) will be searchable in the new store. And a lot of it will be orderable online. Some items we classify as Call to Order only, and a few other items will require the customer be logged in and have an account with the appropriate aircraft model associated.

Default shopping cart

Congrats, great work!

I'm sure it's there, but just to confirm - can I shop over a period of days/weeks/months and then pull the trigger when I feel I've got a decent amount of stuff to ship?

There's a little "star" icon on every store item that allows you to add to the "wish" list. Both the icon usability and the name of the list need to be changed still (that's all on the list of stuff we're working on), but the functionality is there for sure. Your "wish" list items are saved in your account, so they are always there when you come back and sign in, until you remove them or purchase them.
