I need your help .. I am having a dilema! I have 12 days in which to renew my current website subscription, or change providers. The provider I am with, is OK, but I am frustrated by their limitations on postage options. For example, I cannot charge postage by weight, and I cannot charge postage by destination. I therefore have to charge postage on a sliding scale of product value, which I don't think is ideal but I have made it as accurate as possible and it works OK.
The new provider, can do postage options by weight and country, which means that the postage costs are more accurate especially for large orders.
The rest of it is swings and roundabouts - there are pro's and cons to either option with the new provider coming out tops on a couple of other things namely, the shopping basket is better and visible, there is a top menu, and a few other bits, BUT, I like the design of my current site and I cannot replicate it exactly on the new site (it's the colour scheme that I like and can't replicate).
I can't decide which one looks better from a customer point of view...
Can you tell me which you like better? In each case, the top or bottom image - which do you think looks more user friendly? The top images are one provider, and the bottom images are the other.
