I'm looking for consultation and guidance on the best platform and tools to use to develop and manage a website which offers multiple unique stores each with their own ecommerce processes (checkout, reporting, communications, etc.).
Details: We are a company that provides customized apparel for different organizations (schools, companies, etc) and we want to create multiple online stores for our customers where we will sell items for them
Example - a church runs a fundraiser selling t-shirts for a youth group mission trip. We run a campaign for them with an online store with a specific deadline. Once the deadline is reached, all shirts are printed and the orders are fulfilled. We deliver the shirts and order details to the church to deliver to customers along with paying the church the different between cost and price for their fundraiser.
We want all of these stores to run from the same primary domain with each store having its own extension. So, if the domain is www.example.com, a store for XYZ company would be at www.example.com/xyz. The store would stand alone with no menus leading to other stores and it's own checkout process. So if the customer is shopping in the XYZ store, the checkout process should reflect that with details specific to the XYZ fundraising campaign (shipping/pick-up details, customizable contact info and "continue shopping" links that point back to XYZ and not example.com).
****I want to stress that every store will be a directory on the same domain and that every store needs to have it's own checkout process with no link or connection to other stores.
We are primarily looking for consultation and guidance as to the best tools to use to get this done. We are not programmers or coders and have limited experienced, but we are very comfortable with tools like Wix (including their store features), Squarespace, Wordpress, etc.). We want to find something that we can build and customize as needed with limited programming/code.
Feel free to ask any clarifying questions.
Also I know you don't want to provide the consultation before a commitment, but please provide anything you can up front to help us find the best fit for us on this project.
