We are two successful business partners who run a series of small companies here in the UK. However this is the first time we have required a web site to be created for a new business venture which will specialise in the sale of Sports Equipment.
The initial site need only have a few pages of detail about us and our operation - text and images will be provided by us. However the key requirement is to operate a shopping cart style site with some sort of link to manufacturers sites to utilise their existing catalogues and to save us from continually updating the product ranges, prices etc unless there is a better way of achieving this ?.
Those providers with a knowledge of linking sites to others will know how much the job is worth and we therefore leave the budget open to your recommendation. In an ideal world we'd like the site to be up and running by August 2008.
In your bid response we would appreciate at least one example of your work in a similar category where products are sold online utilising other suppliers sites/catalogues - with the understanding that if it cannot be achieved in the above manner we would welcome your suggestions to show how you can provide us with a solution.
