New Online Store Setup with Magento
Contractor claimed to be skilled in both the technical and practical aspects of making a successful online sales website. She was able to technically add some custom features, but left me with a totally dysfunctional website that needs to be totally redone. It is almost as if she had never worked on a online store before. The workflow and normal way a customers browses a website, selects a products, adds to their cart, and then checkout via shopping cart was a mystery to her. This contract was terminated after she went double over the time she quoted before she was hired and left with a website that is unusable and needs to be redone. I had to do most of the work for making the website even navigable myself. She then abruptly said she needed 2 months leave of absence. This contractor needs to stay in the background and deal with code. She can't be used for making a usable website and her communication was very poor. I expressed my issues with her multiple time and I never received any meaningful responses to my concerns. Over all this was a big waste and I wish I never hired her.
