Photographic proofing and e-commerce

We would like to set up a site in which our customers can view their own images and order our portrait products. Many services are available online but we would prefer to do our own in-house hosting with our own hardware and have the option to send resulting customer orders to a lab or print them in-house. Most of the online services have partnerships with particular labs and send the orders directly to those labs. This system will just generate reports for us to create lab order CD's to send to labs or create reports for in-house printing. Currently our system produces XML reports used for the same lab/in-house printing purposes and we would like this online system to work seamlessly with the existing method.

We work with specific organizations and provide multiple portrait images for the members of each organization from which those members can choose and place orders. Individual sittings (a person's group of their own images) within each group must have some level of security - this system should therefore be able to create passwords for each individual's group of images to keep others out of a sitting gallery that is not their own.

The online services that provide this type of service allow for very convenient uploading of images and automatic online image size optimization with zoom functions, automatically sorting the images into galleries, and many other convenience functions both for the consumer and the back end.

Some of the online services can be found at:

The final product will enable customers to navigate to their group's shoot by location name, find their own sitting within the group shoot (could be visual recognition of 1 image without names etc), view images within their own sitting gallery, zoom individual images for inspection within their gallery, select images and sizes of prints for purchase, see complete order in a shopping cart, pay for the order using credit cards, Paypal, or ACH, get instant payment confirmation or denial, input shipping information and email address, get an automatic order confirmation email, and send email to our customer service department as necessary.

On our end we must end up with order information on all orders with verified payments, have the option to generate emails to customers, easy content changes, and the ability to load and automatically sort images into group shoots and individual password protected galleries.

No budget amount has been established for this project as the e-commerce concept is new to the company. Please enter your bid as you see it to be reasonable yet competitive in light of your vision of the project.
