Looking to update ecommerce solution to something more professional, that would integrate into a wordpress website: passthecirkels.com
Open to suggestions on ecommerce platforms that integrate with Wordpress. Currently using WooCommerce, but not very happy with the experience. Want to transfer to something better, but we will reject any bids that request switching to a platform that is hosted by the vendor. This MUST be a very robust solution that is highly secure and competitive in terms of pricing.
We wish to transfer the site to a different host, whereas it is currently hosted by the designer of the website. We wish to transfer to a bigger host for performance and security concerns. We welcome suggestions, but are looking at BlueHost and HostGator. We have experience with Godaddy as well. If you have a recommendation, this is helpful, but again, this also must be a well known, secure, and high-performance platform.
All if this will be within the scope of the task price. Additional attention will be given to solution providers who can recommend improvements for the website design as well. We would like to see it updated and enhanced for ecommerce. We would also like to see it enhanced in other ways, as it seems to lack some professional polish. Anybody with expert wordpress skills that can recommend some basic, or perhaps major, updates to enhance the look and feel of the site as well will be favorably considered.
Before proposing, please visit passthecirckels.com on a browser and mobile device to see whether this is something you would like to do. Ideally this is something that one with aesthetic skills can enhance. We will pay even additional amount for improvements that are elegant and help us move closer to a high-polish and scalable design.
Again, the priorities are as follows, top priority first:
1. change ecommerce platform (if for whatever reason you recommend keeping, please explain and indicate how you might update the purchase process / user experience
2. switch the site to a new host, one high performance and security, scalable to large traffic
3. update site design, more simple/elegant, and optimized checkout. Ideally there would be a way to add content to reflect the brand, particularly highlighting lifestyle through imagery. Examples for inspiration available upon request
