An Interview With An OpenCart Enthusiast — Timmy Yu [Timway Technology]

We have millions of clients around the world and we have built a strong connection with some of them for the past years. I would like you all to remember that we work in this business for 15 years now, so my previous statement should not surprise you.

Who are our clients? Some of them are just one-time buyers, who get a new theme for their personal blog, company web page or fundraising landing page. However, some of them are big companies who build their business in web-development and web-design. Our templates help them develop websites faster and get bigger results. So I guess, it's time to meet some of our most valued clients.

Today, I will start a chain of interviews with our top clients from different niches. Our today's guest will be Timmy Yu from the Timway Technology. His company is our biggest OpenCart client and I'd love to talk to Timmy about his company, about premium OpenCart templates in general and about our new OpenCart price policy!

Alex: Hi, Timmy! It's a pleasure to have you here, do you happen to read our blog?
Timmy Yu: Thanks for connecting. We enjoy reading your articles and our company would be more than happy to talk to you!

Alex: I'm really happy to hear that, can you please tell us a bit about your company?
Timmy Yu: Sure. Timway Technology has been one of the pioneers in Hong Kong since the early internet era. Its “Timway Hong Kong Search Engine” was first introduced to the market in 1997 and immediately became popular among local individuals and corporations alike. It revolutionized the online search method in Hong Kong as it was then the only hierarchical directory providing search contents in Traditional Chinese.

Timmy Yu: Timway continues to grow leveraging on our innovation and insights on digital search. We now evolved into a comprehensive company that aims at providing flexible and quality hosting solutions to business and individuals. The scope ranges from web design, web hosting, digital promotion to server collocation. eCommerce platform is definitely one of them.

Timway Technology - Inspire The Future

Alex: How long have you been a member of a TemplateMonster Family?
Timmy Yu: Since 2004, approximately 13 years already.

Alex: Why do you like working with OpenCart, not PrestaShop or any other eCommerce CMS?
Timmy Yu: We prefer OpenCart over other open source eCommerce solutions because:
  1. Stability - it’s relatively stable in supporting multi-language and multi-currencies
  2. Compatibility - highly compatible with various payment gateways around the world
  3. Flexibility - there are a wide range of service extensions available to cope with different eCommerce needs

Alex: Why do you prefer our OpenCart themes?
Timmy Yu: OC themes from TemplateMonster always come with complete source pack, we could be rest assured that theme will look just like its live demo after installation. Basically 'what you see is what you get’. Plus we appreciate that TM theme authors are just one click away.

Alex: Do you have your own favorites? The ones you used more than once in your projects?
Timmy Yu: We are an IT solution company that supports our clients to use OpenCart. So basically we’re purchasing the templates on behalf of our clients. We serve so many shop owners so it’s hard to pinpoint the ‘favourites’. However, we would advise our clients not to consider templates with 'mega menu’ as we always encounter bugs with that issue.

Alex: Have you ever had a situation when you couldn’t find a template for a niche OpenCart website? Can you tell us what kind of template you miss on our marketplace?
Timmy Yu: 'Couldn’t find any template' is a rare issue though it happens once in a few months. We’ll try to keep you posted if this issue arises.
