Let me start by asking if you have ever done anything in this area for t-shirts, please show me working examples.
I am looking for a web designer who can create me an e-commerce site. It would have to include some features listed below, but above all, I would like SEO to be priority for local traffic, as well as national traffic to our site.
We would like the ability to add products easily which would include different colors, different sizes of items, etc. We would also like the ability to create custom, individualized webstores for our customers to go to. There should be a cart, checkout, etc. We would also need to SECURE way to store customers credit card information to run their cards through our terminal, not though a gateway. We would also need some kind of way to collect the orders easily, as well as send confirmation. I may want to figure out a way to calculate shipping at checkout, or I may just keep a standard shipping cost.
Some other feature I am looking for are custom designer, where customers can create their own t-shirt by adding text, standard vector artwork, or upload their own image. There would have to be an price calculator which updates the customers total once they add of change different products.
A key concept also would be a redirecting script which would allow customers to "continue shopping" which would take them back to the previous place they were at, NOT back to home page, and a basic cart and contact us form.
I am very open to different ideas as my expertise is not in ecommerce web sites and web design, so with that said, I would like someone who is usually available on skype, as well as thoughtful into understanding our businesses to better create this site. I have examples of websites I would like to emulate, as well as the designer tool I would like. Again, if you have done something similar, please show me.
Please tell me why you think you fit best for this job, and please show examples of sites you have created that I may test and look at. Whoever we hire for this job, will also have first priority to another website we are needing created. Based on your replies, I will further talk to discuss price wise where we are, rather than set a fixed price, once you know what we are looking for.
