Calling all customers of Chinese shopping sites!

Hello everyone!

I'm looking for customers of Chinese shopping sites to help test my website. The main site https://distantfinds.com/ contains product reviews and the forum https://forums.distantfinds.com/ is for product discussions.

I would appreciate it if you could take a few moments to navigate the links above and provide feedback.

It would be awesome if you have time and interest to take it a step further and sign up. The website is completely free to use and by signing up you are allowed to post product reviews and in the forum.

    As I understand from landing your product is helping customer to decide on product based on your rating system and conversation with other customers. And so I think you should have integrated forum and main site.

      Thanks for the feedback! Each review has a comment section beneath it for users to converse. The forums allow users to optionally tag products from the main site to discuss more broadly (i.e. not about a specific review but products). Products tagged in forums show up in right hand sidebar (bottom sidebar on mobile) under "Latest Posts for Product" when viewing a product.

      Do you think this is a good approach? I might work on a video to demo this functionality and put it on the landing page for clarity.

        I think forum is redundant. Nobody will go back and forth between two places with too similar functionality.

        Video is good idea if you can communicate your main sell points.

    I use Aliexpress and visited your site, but I only see 1 product.

      Thanks for visiting the site. I plan on adding more product reviews. The site and forum are a bit empty as of now since there are no other members.

      Do you think I should add all the product reviews ASAP and then space out when I post links to them on social media such as reddit?

      If you have the time I would really appreciate it if you try to sign up and create a product review for anything you have bought off AliExpress.
