I would like the website to be developed similar to www.123print.com. It will have the choice of English and French at first. I will translate the French part of the website, so when you create the “French” link, it can be in English and I can edit it to French.
The website would be used for selling business cards. The website should be created to allow for expansion of these categories, i.e. labels, letterheads, etc. It will have a database of various industries categories and 1- 50 card images for each category. The customers would have the ability to choose standard card images or update their own details. The users will also be able to preview the card before ordering or uploading their own artwork. They will also be able to save their card design.
They will have various options like front / back printing, no. of color, fonts, quality of cards to choose from and quantity to order. (see [url removed, login to view]) All the options combined determine the sale price. All this information should be stored in the database.
Customer’s order information, the stage of the order, and payment details will be stored as well. Customer should have facility to login and check status of their order. Customers can repeat their order in future by selecting the order from past and entering the quantity needed.
The website should have facility to generate promotion emails / newsletters. It should allow to add categories / images / and more pages without development effort. The site would have some information pages that I can add using a CMS feature.
The website would accept customer’s payment using credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, & American Express.
The website should be developed in PhP / Mysql. You can use any standard open source utilities like OsCommerce, Zencart etc.
