Magento Project

1. A Magento master. To upgrade our website from 1.5 to the latest stable version 1.7 etc. Magento on our hosted sever.

Specific Details:

- Our host server for our website is 100% compatible with Magento.

- We simple don't have time to do the required updates and test them.

- Our website server runs two programs. The second program is custom php software and must not be altered with in any way.

- Performing the upgrade with Magento's community edition. All known scripts must be malware and virus free based on the knowledge base of Magento.

- Also third party protection providers will test the scripts and php code, etc to make sure it is hackproof, backdoor proof, and updated etc.

- You are to perform the upgrade in a timely manner and test the shopping cart and overall Magento settings to ensure a stable upgrade has been performed.

- Using our master template, which was originally written from template monster for Magento 1.4 has been altered to work with Magento 1.5 currently and must work perfectly with the newest version.

- We want to retain the layout from this theme package it is pretty basic in

the newest version of Magento.

- 90% of the way the shopping cart works in correct. A couple of tweaks and minor changes may be required for the checkout software and the way items are display need to chaged. The checkout software is currently working correctly with PayPal and Magento 1.5.

Also we need to correct the following:

* Customer Tax Codes for all provinces. Only Ontario HST works correctly currently.

* Add Federal Express, UPS, Purolator, Canada Post module shipping software to calculate shipping costs from two locations in a Canada-wide delivery to the customers location. You can use the shipping company's software modules to help with this.

* Import all the contacts, content, customers, data, etc. to the latest version also related to the theme pack and our website. Our last update took a total of 10 hours to complete from start to finished. Our host server is very fast.

2. To completely rebuild our data base from 4 wholesalers to approx 14k items total,. using XML,SVC, and Web scraping data. The Main XML database was upgraded September 2012 using access SVC, but its missing new product pictures and only has one line descriptions which is why we need a programer who knows XML to do this properly so that all the data is retain with pictures full page descriptions and missing information "stock levels" "weight" and warehouse locations that is inside the XML data is completely retain in Magento data base. The wholesaler also provides a SVC file, but it lacks the information the XML has and we need the optimize XML version in our database. We also have example of another website working with Magneto using this XML database and auto updating completely.

- Our major wholesaler uses XML RPC data. The majority of these products are PC parts, complete systems, laptops, notebooks, tablets, etc. You must correctly import this data into Magento using scripts or whatever tools necessary to work properly. The wholesaler data is complete. It includes product, pictures, descriptions, stock levels from two warehouses and is completely done already. You must make sure that it imports into Magento and displays correctly on our website.

- You must also write a custom script that will allow it to update, delete, or modify the products on each update which we would like done daily on an automatic basis using whatever tools are necessary. The wholesaler provides this data change every 24 hours and must work 100% with Magento. There are approximately 9,000 items This must be and automated completed process. We originally programed all in import fields that made sense. About a year this wholesaler has change there internal layout display making it confusing and unconscionable, So in the fields are the same, it's the layout that is the problem, so were are asking importance here to retain the original layout display as best as possible.

- The second wholesaler has approximately 2,500 items. The products are mostly Xbox, PS3, and PC software related. The wholesaler provides Xcel SVC complete file with pictures and descriptions. Again we need this imported correctly into Magento and must be automated. The process for this wholesaler is weekly. The product fields may differ from the original wholesaler so it can be done separately but must fit inside the original fields as best as possible. Maximum field display information is essential to the project.

- The third wholesaler is mostly PC accessories and their data can be provided similar the second wholesaler from a virtual web ripper-based software. The reason for this is their SVC is very limited and we find it better overall to rip their wholesaler website. You can do this rip your self in a couple of hours or we can provide the rip. It's about 2,000 items. The prices and products rarely change.

- The fourth wholesaler is the same as the third except for different brands and quality products of similar nature. There are about 1,200 products total.

- Finally, in Magento 1.5 there are about a hundred products of one type and three hundred products of another type that have been custom added from a small data base. We must make sure that it is brought forward. You can scrap rest of the data and start over and us the orginal data as a guide its up to you. Also staded before 90% of the main data fields are complete, its getting the data in there.

3. To write custom scripts that provide update information RSS feeds etc, daily, weekly, monthly as need, based on wholesaler data. Most of this is explained in detail in Point 2.

4. To change our front website main page with a page flipper new graphics and marketing ideas.

- We have spent time mastering our front page with correct links to various products in a skillful way. However, we need to update our front page to flip the graphics. We would like you to provide about six different page flips "ads" that link to the correct products.

- Page one to three would be images of Acer products. We are an Acer dealer and you would have authorization to already created images from Acer's website(s) and add or modify with our logo. We don't want this to be time-sensitive. You're basically taking pre-made advertizing and adding them onto our webpage flipper.

- Pages 3 to 6 will be computer related hardware products. Again we don't want this to be time-sensitive. Basic images with our logo snapped onto the pages with prices, etc. advertizing.

5. To provide on going updates weekly as need and provide us a monthly contract as well. separate 15 hours per month.

- If we are happy with the work, professionalism, and budget than we could possibly arrange a continuing maintenance and updating program. To make on the spot changes when needed or data flow changes as well.

6. Knowing computer hardware terms and data base programing. also phpadmin and webhost skills, C-panel an asset. Understanding English 100%.

- A Magento master, a complete knowledge of XML data base programming, access, sequel server, php scripting, automated scripting, debugging, graphic design, media design.

In closing; we want to establish a long relationship with the proper party. We understand the complexity of the project and we want to make sure that this is taken on with the understanding that it will be 100% completed and in a timely manner (say, 2-4 weeks roughly). Also, talking with our partners we understand the length of time it should take to complete this type of project accepting the scope. Based on your programming knowledge you should be able to accept and complete this project in a reasonable and timely manner.
