We are a small print shop in Canada who has a very outdated web site and we are in need of a calculator similar to many other companies online for business cards, postcards, etc. Our site is on a VPS with root access and the calculator will need to be for a LAMP (Linux, etc.) server. We would like the ability to update the variables such as products and prices ourselves. We also have our own merchant account and do not need a shopping cart.
We would like to see samples of any calculators or online estimators you've previously created.
Thank you for your time and we look forward to working with someone from [url removed, login to view]
We have our own SSL and do not use any canned ecommerce apps so any developer actually has a lot more flexibility with our setup
Required (Must Haves)
• No login necessary
• Database for products and prices that can be easily updated either through an Admin Panel (preference) or PHP MyAdmin
• File Upload: incorporate our existing upload script if possible (cgi)
• Populate an Order Form on our secure site/SSL to show customer total before shipping.
• NO INVOICING – there’s no backend accounting. We just want the ability to provide a price online to the customer before their order confirmation.
• Browser compatibility: we do not want “bleeding edge”. We want the calculator to work with existing technology, not future tech. We have both Mac and PC for testing purposes.
Not Required but Possible Add-Ons
• Add multiple products (mini-cart)
• Show Taxes: in Canada taxes are 13% HST (all provinces except Quebec, Manitoba and Alberta where it’s only GST at 5%). No taxes on USA orders.
• We have FedEx and UPS accounts and if you can connect to their servers for shipping prices (Canada and USA only), that would be great, too.
