I want to develop an online retail store without an online payment option. All goods will be paid for on delivery.
The online store is like every other online store but it will be very Nigerian and that is why i want to have full control over it. I want to be able to create my categories myself, do my own graphics and so on.
The interface has to be CMS to enable easy editing.
There are various categories on the online store:
We have retailers: these retailers are store or business owners that send us their product description and pictures for us to post on our store.For instance lets assume the retailer is NEVIDA. Nevida deals in shoes, clothes and Jewelry.I can decide to shop at Nevida and see all Nevida's product by clicking on the shop by retailer option under the category. This does not mean i will not still see the shoes Nevida sell under the shoes category which will contain shoes from all retailers on the site.
Shop by products; this will allow me to shop by products such as shoes, electronics, gadgets and all product category i wish to create.
shop by price: this category will permit me to shop products that are within to my budget. I can shop for products below a particular price.
other categories will include hot offers, promotions and so on and so forth.
It should also allow shopping for services too: i can hire cleaners to clean my house, a driver for one day, maid or nanny for a day or week, personal assistant for a day, private security for a day and so on and so forth.
There will be a window sales offer, where products are up for ridiculous slow prices for a periods of time. like from 1 hour to 2 weeks depending on the parameters i choose to set.
There shall be a section for people to sell refurbished products. they will simple send us the products description and photos and we will post it for them in the refurbished section.
It should also have a section for a gossip blog where news can be shared.
It should have an API to stream my partners internet radio on it.
User of the website must open an account before they can shop or check out.
Retailers must have an account to send us their product description and pictures fir us to post on the site.
It is a free delivery and payment on delivery website.
the website has to be colourful.
It must be connected to our social network pages on facebook, twitter and google plus
Online chat suppurt;
It should have the function of allowing chat support in real time. Where i can help user on the site.
users shld be able to submit tickets.
I should be able to send newsletters to user about new products and promotions going on.
The interface must be sleek and should have slides that permit clicking of links.
The store should be able to suggest similar products and keep track of a customers use like recently viewed products and so on.
All products on the website should have the option of a customer sharing it on his/her social network page.
I will design the logo and graphics myself all i need is the platform.
There should be few pages for our policies on the website, about us, contact us, and few stuffs we want to add. do not forget the live radio and gossip blog option.
