I would like a quote for designing and building a web site for social ecommerce in Japan.
It is a site very much similar to [url removed, login to view] in U.S., or a social teaching commerce platform where users are allowed to both create and offer classes as teachers as well as sign up to classes as students to learn.
-log-in using FB or [url removed, login to view] account
-create a class (bio, class description, date, location with a google map link)
-browse/search for classes by location/date/rating/
-sign up and execute payment via credit card or pre-paid web account in Japan
-post rating, photos and comments from the rating
-watch and follow classes
-messaging between teachers and students for signed up parties
-user interface in Japanese (and English, but that is optional)
-simplest in design with intuitive and ergonomic user interface (i.e., etsy)
-allows for later continuous agile updates and ongoing developments
In the consultant(s):
-I am not looking for jack of all trades. Please specify whether you are a technologist / web producer / designer (I value user interface design as much as technical finesse).
-Some basic familiarity of Japanese culture and web standard a plus, but not required. I am looking for talented, agile worker, not the lowest cost solution.
-I am also interested in knowing your work style and deliverables. Please propose how you will plan and divide the delivery process and approximately how much time and how many sessions you estimate for delivering a mock-up, user requirements document, finished product, etc.
