Hello Well.ca community,
Our team has been tirelessly working away at developing a new and improved Well.ca over the past months. I am really happy to be able to announce those changes today.
The new design for our site is improved in so many different ways and all the changes are directed at making it easier for you to find, explore, and purchase products for their homes.
Product pictures are larger, more products are shown at once, search is larger and improved, and we’ve changed our header to make it easier to explore all the categories of products on our site.
We hope you like the new colour theme and the new design. Thanks so much to everyone on our team who helped build all the little parts of the new site.
We’re really interested in your feedback — are there parts of the new design that you really like or think still need improvement? Let us know in the comments below.
And remember, this is only the beginning. We have so many new features planned for the site in the near future. So stay tuned!

We’re excited to show you some of the new changes we’ve added to Well.ca
Based on your feedback, we’ve improved ways to find products, navigate our site, see what’s in your cart, and calculate shipping.
Take a look at our new shopping cart — when you add products to the cart, you can hover product to get more detailed information on what’s inside. Here’s an example:
Another new thing we’ve added is the “Recent Reviews” box — this lets you see the most recent discussion on our site. Do take part!
To help you find products more easily, we’ve been doing work to link related products together. When you’re in a product that has different sizes, for example, you can use this dropdown box to select different options:
One of the most useful things we’ve just added is dynamic shipping time calculation. For Canadians (we’ll be adding US support soon), we can give you a more accurate estimate of how long it’ll take to get your order based on your postal code and province. Take a look:
Have any more suggestions for our site? Let us know, we’d love to hear from you!
I am excited to show off some of the new stuff available at Well.ca!
Today (October 10, 2007) was an exciting day for us at Well.ca as we launched one of our biggest set of updates to our site.
Our first new feature is this blog. You can read our blog by clicking on the “Blog” link on the top of every page. Our well.ca/Beauty site has a separate blog that will contain news and articles that have to do with Beauty and Cosmetics. Stay Tuned!
Reviews and Ratings
This new feature is what’s got me the most excited. We’ve spent the last while designing an easy, friendly way for our community to share information about products. If you visit the home page of any product (such as this one), you’ll see a Review section like this:
You can use this as a way to give information about products you like (or dislike) or ask questions to other visitors.
AJAX Shopping Cart
One thing you may not notice is our new shopping cart. Now whenever you add products to your cart, you will see a spinning “Calculating…” wheel which indicates that your browser is dynamically recalculating the value of products in your shopping cart. All this happens without leaving the page, which makes shopping smoother, faster, and more fun. Try adding something to your cart right now to see what I am talking about :)
Thanks for stopping by and we look forward to making some new announcements soon with new features and ideas we have. As always, send an email to email@example.com to say hello!
This is the first posting in our new Well.ca Blog. This blog will be a place for us to update customers and friends about new features, sales, and announcements regarding Well.ca.
Wow! We’ve launched our brand new site, Well.ca. It’s been a lot of work over the last week: our Category Managers have been furiously finding you the newest and best beauty products (we’ve added more than 1500 products over the last two months!). Our developers have been redesigning the site, making it nicer to look at and easier to use.
Thanks to all the staff at Well.ca for working so hard. Thank you, too, to our customers and friends for all your valuable support and feedback. We’re really excited to show off our new site!
The new thing that we’re most proud to show off (and the part of our site that is generating the most discussion) is our new beauty site. You can visit it at well.ca/beauty — we’ve got hundreds of products your favourite cosmetic brands including Almay, L’Oreal Paris, RoC, CoverGirl, and Revlon. Take a look!
Making our site easier to use
One of the places our software developers have spent a lot of time working on making our site easier to use. Try adding a product to your cart — it will dynamically fly through the air, making it clear when you’ve expanded your shopping cart.
Take a look at our new purple menu on the left hand side of product lists. You can click on items to expand them out and see more of the products that are available.
You ain’t seen nothin’ yet
This is only the first step for us at Well.ca. We’ve got plans to build more of the features you’ve been asking for including:
- A simpler and faster way to checkout products
- The ability to rate and review your favourite products
- Linking products together so you can see more of the products you like
- Forums for our visitors to build communities and get to know each other
We love to hear from you
