I want a quality product so I will only consider those with extensive knowledge, experience and can show examples of their work. Please do not bid unless you meet these requirements.
Handle all technical aspects of launching a Turn-Key shopping cart such as Magento or similar type cart and assist me so I can manage routine aspects the day to day management of an ecommerce site such as promotions, change home page photos, and any other basic functions. We do not have a dedicated IT person, so it needs to be simple to manage or we need to discuss an ongoing support/maintenance arrangement.
Use [url removed, login to view] as an example to follow for a clean, user friendly site without a lot of colors or flash. Our site will be much more basic than example.
share inventory between multiple websites but allow for different prices and product names
Site will have discounted retail prices, site will have higher retail prices and ability for customer to log in for preferred (wholesale) price
calculate freight shipping based on SOAP-based web service built and implemented using the Axis SOAP engine. (The freight company can assist with these details)
UPS and USPS shipping as well for US and Canada only
Buyer should be able to know shipping costs by putting items in cart and clicking checkout and calculate shipping charges by entering their zip code. It is not okay for the buyer to have to enter their name, address and CC number before they find out freight costs.
Ability to checkout as a guest or create an account to save wishlist, etc.
Enable or disable features or callouts as needed (or help us learn to manage this aspect)

Anything else that is necessary to for the site to be attractive, user friendly and above all, functional. Do not assume that if I do not specifically request something it means I don't want it. I tried to think of everything, but I'm not a techie, so I may not know what I need or should have...please ask if you think there may be an omission or error on my part
Developer should able to set-up, configure and fine-tune the store to fully functional. Technical support and any bug fixing should be taking care by developer after hand-over the project.
