Project objective is to develop an e-commerce web site selling food oriented products from Madagascar. The initial number of products will be 6 with 3 variant each and 3 different packaging/volumes. More products will be gradually added.
One key constrain is the link with the production and shipping site which requires production orders,shipping slips and billing documents. These could be sent by Email "live" or twice daily. The site needs to accept Credit card payments and be initially able to include shipping costs to USA,Canada, the 25 EU countries, Japan and India. More countries will be added later.
The content of the site needs to be "upgradable" from anywhere so that updated content can be added. We initially think of using Lunix/MySqL/Php with Mambo but could be convinced to change by good arguments.
The timeline is to start work in January 06 and be online and selling by April.
Location of the hosting site will be decided after the financial and tax implications have been assessed.
The selection criteria will be :
1)Quality of proposed methodology and working links.
2)Verifiable references backing claimed skills.
