I want to know how I can make this site http://minibits.weebly.com/ better
I will pay .20 BTC to whos ever idea I use on the site.
And I will give .01 BTC to whoever comments with there idea of the site and if they like how it works (please be honest you will be paid either way.)
I will pay up to 20 people for the .01 BTC and any amount of the .20 BTC ONLY if I use the idea.

A serious and more professional revamp to styling and layout would be a great idea. You should follow more or less the same general layout of all e-commerce websites. It's clean, simple and recognized. When people spend money they like to feel secure and visuals are a huge part of this when it comes to e-commerce since there really isn't much interaction between you and your customer.

If you are trying to bring people in from outside the community, Google Analytics is your friend.

Ditch weebly and get a proper domain and hosting to begin with.

That's understandable, but you also have lot's of templates you can use available for download for free.

Also, the width of the div id main gives it an horizontal scrollbar even in my screen, and my screen it's not that small with 1366px width. So you might want to fix that. Probably it's not the width itself that causes it but some margin setting.

I found the problem.

It's with a padding of 20px you have on that weebly header.
It's an inline style:
Code:
<div style="padding: 20px; width:100%; text-align:center;">

Search for that, if it's not injected by weebly, just remove the 20px padding rule and you're good to go.
That div is right after the closing of the wrapper div, at least on the site source that I see in my browser.
If it's weebly who's injecting it, I guess you can't do anything about it

BTW, there was no need for the bitcent, but thank you Smiley

I've been semi-privately trying to get a PayPal <-> Bitcoin exchange for a while now, and the top priority is speed. Green Addresses only work one way, but you might want to drop minibits into a series of Instawallets or Coinapult, and start emailing those out. I've been trying to get something working with VirWoX now that BitInstant has an in and you wouldn't have to deal with PayPal at all in theory, but the fees would probably eat your margin and then some, and I dunno what to do about that, outside of deposit in bulk?

Also, a mobile friendly website is a happy website.

You should say either on the home page or the FAQ what exactly the site was for. At first I was like "What's a MiniBit? Why should I buy one?"

Your site is clean and simple which is cool, but you spell out your very flaws in clear text for the user to read in your FAQ.  You should really have an about bitcoin question or link.  You should point out that paypal has a problem with bitcoin, but they don't care about this small of transaction (because they do and will kill your account if issues arise).  Also, its ok to talk about your fixed price, but you would be wiser to not start out by saying why your prices are so 'high'.  Its an immediate turn off from what your trying to accomplish.  Your not trying to slide around that fact, but no need to yell it at them.

Also, if you had some feed back, a way of rating the transaction or at least a link to your ebay rating or something like that, it would inspire confidence in doing business with you.

Selling bitcoin for paypal burned me when I was brand new at this.  Good luck.

You mention a bitcointalk.org post for contact, which would mean that anyone without an account here can't get in touch with you. How about a contact form that sends you an email?

I like the clean and minimal design.

What I still didn't figure out what you actually do. A few words about what the site actually does, and what miniBits are would do wonders!

I sent BTC to some people, I am going to write why you should use MiniBits but a few people put that and I said I would give .20 BTC. So please make sure to give me your address if you want to get paid for it.

Me too.  I think that should be almost the first thing you see.  Also, effectively $10 a bitcoin? That's kinda steep I think, but I guess that's all you.  Anyway to adjust so it's not so over-inflated?

It took me a couple clicks to figure out what exactly the site was for.

A simple sentence like "Buy small amounts of Bitcoin with PayPal!" above the main links would probably be enough.

Also, having to wait an unknown amount of time up to 24 hours with a high markup ($10 a coin when it's $5 at an exchange?) is not the greatest.

You will probably get hit with chargebacks like a lot of people who have tried to use paypal.
