We have been using an online service called Sellfy to store files and deliver download links.  They have recently added extra steps to the download process that make it look like we are trying to steal PayPal passwords and are scaring off customers.  And their buttons don't work right with Chrome on Android.  I've decided to find a new fulfillment service, rather than upgrade with them and hope paying for advanced features fixes the problems.   >:(

I've bought an SSL and well be revamping pages to work with "https:" security.  Since I have to touch every page anyway...   Do you like the current quirky neon-bright design for the Tri Tac sales site, or would you prefer we tone it down or even move to a more generic webstore-in-a-box "clean whitespace" look.  Or something new altogether?

New store is WIP.  Check out gumroad.com/tritacgames.

I will be adding a cart and spiffyness as I go.  If it works better, I will make the switch from the main site.

I do love a bit of wacky lava-lamp style, but when it comes to handing over money I think that most people want uncomplicated, professional and reassuring.

The WIP looks good: clear information about the product (price, length file size and description) and a nice clean format. The tricky part might be keeping things grouped appropriately together for ease of navigation without it turning into a huge list.

Looks basic, maybe a little dark with the black background, but simple and functional is the key.

I got the gumroad store set up so you can get to it through store.tritacgames.com. 

Applying the SSL cert to existing content is being a PITA.  The https: versions of the pages lose access to the contents of the site's Graphics and CSS folders.

So... if I can move the actual sales to store.tritacgames.com, what is useful to you from the general website?  In particular, I am wondering about killing the menu bar on the left of the index page at this time, in the name of de-lavaing the lamp.  Richard loved bright and I think the style of Thor Ragnarok is amazing, but I know that is a minority opinion.

Not sure I can make the most useful suggestions, since I normally access the site on a mobile 'phone. I do think that a straightforward list can make finding a particular item much easier than a selection of larger tiles, if you already know what you're looking for.

I've emailed my hosting company to force redirect to https://.  Please let me know if anything goes wonky.

Also, I can set a redirect for mobile devices for the main tritacgames.com website.  Would you prefer I set it up do pop directly to Gumroad?

We have secure webpages now.

The main sales website is overdue for a major makeover.  I still got nothing. 

Any suggestions?
