    Hi all,

    OKYO dot com - is an emerging British startup marketplace providing online pop-up shops for small business, they aim to take away the difficulty of setting up a business online. There platform is free to setup, with fees based solely on monthly sales (see here OKYO . com) there are no listing charges or any other hidden costs, they aim to be fair and friendly!

    You don't need any design skill to get started, simply having a nice background image and a logo will give you a presence, it takes less than 5 minutes to have your own branded store.

    Each shop created is listed in our marketplace, providing visibility.

    You get your own url and can even simply embed your store in your own website very simply.

    Whats your thoughts?

    Had a quick look, doesnt seem to reander well on iphone plus very slow, concept is a basic multi vender shopping cart, needs the right marketing as it can be easily copied.

    Hey truereddevil,

    Nice idea. I think your design has room for improvement. Your headers and sub-headers look a little "weak" to me- I would increase the font size and bold them to make a stronger impact. The cursive font in the logo isn't very readable, and your main value proposition isn't that clear. Try to direct your visitor's attention more boldly!

    Also, you should probably emphasize your pricing strongly from the start. :)

    Cheers
