We are scoping out work to re-do our shopping cart. Our current shopping cart is not very user-friendly, always times out, and we can’t edit/add product skus, free shipping/handling, and do int’l purchases.
We would be open to purchasing and then customizing “off the shelf” ecommerce solutions such as cubecart v4.0. However, I wanted to offer this project up to highly experienced shopping cart designers to see what you can come up with.
Specifically, we need:
• Domestic AND International purchasing capability
• USPS/ UPS shipping calculation + a small handling charge (this is typically done by weight estimates)
• Discounts to include a $$$ reduction, a % calculation, and free shipping/handling promos
• A check box option for gift wrapping at a small charge
• Ability for the web admin to add/subtract product skus when they become available and/or are out of stock
• Ability to export all buyers’ data (not financial stuff but contact info, skus, date, shipping address, quantities bought, etc.) to excel
• Email order confirmation to buyer and administrator – format of the email should look exactly the same as the final invoice
• An email thank you for purchasing
• Easy check out process – very clear steps
• Ability to register before purchasing for future ease of purchase AS WELL AS opt out
• SSL – and logo to ensure the buyer that this is a secure site
• SEO optimized
• Multiple tax classes
• Statistics – for reporting capabilities
• Multiple pics per product
• Size chart pop up
• Ability to use paypal
• Ability to edit shopping cart before checking out
Those interested in bidding must provide 2 to 3 samples of ecommerce sites completed by them. Additionally, I would consider a pure customization of an off-the-shelf solution.
