    Aaaaaaarrrrggghhh!

    I really really, really don't like anything that hijacks my viewing experience. So seeing the yellow sign up thing, push notifications, refer and win, cookie consent and sticky SM icons would put me off ever visiting your site again.

    Maybe I'm not a typical visitor but it's all really intrusive. Sorry to be so negative but it wasn't a good UX for me.

    The sliding popup was intrusive and annoying, the site looked much better when it first loaded vs when that thing dropped.. suddenly I felt like closing the tab

    You might want to look into on-exit popups, available from OptINMonster for example (http://optinmonster.com/exit-intent-popup-examples/)

    I agree with both fisicx and WebMedic. The yellow page that covers up your website is intrusive. If this is supposed to be a "Welcome Mat", it doesn't do it's job. It should probably say "Go Away", because that's what most visitors will do. You should also stay way from pop-ups of any kind, because they get in the way of the visitor finding what they are looking for. At least the "refer and win" slider needs to be clicked on to open it, so it's not "in your face" the way other pop-ups would be, but the whole idea is unnecessary.
    I also have a question. Why would visitors looking for a website review need to know that you are an official Shopify partner?

    Thanks guys, very constructive criticism, I'm gonna take it on board. Yes, I work with ecommerce websites, review websites for free and partnered with Shopify who hosts websites - I do not understand why the connection is unclear?

    ok, fair enough, I'll make sure to look into that and add some better structure

    OK, but still got the horrible sumo-mat thing and stuff appearing on all four sides of the screen. Try looking at the site on your phone - the UX isn't good.
