Time 2 Shine Launches Blazin’ New Site

BMX News - Time 2 Shine Launches New Website

We know better than most that designing, building and launching a new website is a big undertaking. And for a small team of people to work it in, alongside the rest of the daily grind takes a ton of dedication to the cause.

Time 2 Shine just punched the power-up button on their new site on Monday. Prior to launching this “2.0,” the site was the trusty original site that got them from day one of their business to Sunday night, so it earned a playful retirement romping in the pastures with the other retired websites.

The new workhorse is also a showhorse, racehorse and will definitely make the order takers hoarse back at T2S HQ in West Virginia.

We added a Stay Strong T-Shirt to our cart, and right away, we started seeing the new features in action. A place for discount codes (we promptly used: NEWT2S for 15% off), and a points system (more on that below). And PayPal as a payment option!

The product detail pages allow you to get social with your stuff right then and there, add a product to a gift registry (think about it: Your little Johnny Nagrider is having a birthday. Now, grandma is only a few clicks away from a new set of Profile hubs. BAM!). The site also has a “wish list” which allows you to drool in anticipation of the day your lotto numbers come up. Slick…very slick.

Rolando Camacho of Blot Out Graphics designed the site, and graphics. We dig his work, and here he laid it down strong!

We hit up T2S head honcho, Matt McEvoy to get a little 4-1-1 on how the site came together, and future plans.

The new Time 2 Shine site has been in the works for about six months now. As our brand selection and inventory grew, our site performance began to slip and some customers were experiencing slow load times, and crashing during the checkout process.

Our new site resolves all of the issues and adds a bunch of new features that will make the customer’s time on the site more enjoyable and productive. The speed on the new site is over 5X faster than our previous version. Navigation through products and manufacturers on the site has become smoother. The graphics are more crisp and modern. We also integrated a brand new e-commerce provider to make the checkout process flawless, and also added PayPal as a payment option.

We have also implemented a new loyalty program for our customers. Come register on the site, and earn loyalty points with each purchase. Your points will be stored on your account page along with order history, and tracking numbers.

These points can be redeemed on future purchases. Also, several manufacturers have partnered up with T2S for the launch of our new site. DKOI, Alius, Rennen, SNAFU, and DCSHOECOUSA will all offer free product giveaways to select new customers who register on Each manufacturer will have an advertised giveaway on our website for two-weeks, with a winner announced live on the site in our new “Blog & News” section.

The first giveaway will begin Wednesday August 7, 2013! The product giveaway schedule is listed below.

August 7, 2013 – August 21, 2013 – Alius Bars, Grips, Seat & Sticker Pack

September 15, 2013 – September 30, 2013 – DCSHOECOUSA Chris Cole Signature Shoe (Any Size), DC Snap Back Hat, Tees & Stickers

All you have to do is visit the site, and register with at least your name and email address, and you will automatically be entered to win!

In the time it took to copy and past Matt’s comments, we received our nice, formatted order confirmation, telling us that we “will receive an additional email once your order is shipped.”

Big props and congratulations to the T2S crew on a successful build and launch. Go give it a look, using the link below. Then, order something. Use Discount code NEWT2S for 15% off.
