this request is for something similar to big cartel
I would like the final product to be wordpress driven for me to easily edit appearances and templates.
ideally, i want my site to have a very similar clean/simple design like big cartel. some of the major components that i would like included are:
-store owner chooses which package they would like to sign up for (the default option being free, and allowing the least amount of customization) and the ability for them to upgrade/downgrade/cancel
-store owner chooses their store name and subdomain name
-allow the same type of progressively more enhanced store customizations for the store owners who choose more expensive packages (theme style changes via an online tool or offline code editor)
-store owner able to upload their own products/pricing (including multiple images for each product--depending on the package chosen)
-store owner able to add/remove extra pages or sections to their site (about this shop, blog, faq, contact--# of pages to be added depends on chosen package)
-store owner able to link back to their own site (again, depending on chosen package)
-Store owner to be able to customize the colors of their store and potentially have different pre-designed store layouts for them to choose from.
-Store owner should have the ability to use their own url as their store.
-recently added items listing on store owner sites
-support of multiple currencies
-store statistics made available to each store owner
in addition to the existing features of big cartel, i also need the following differences:
-the front page of the site should show the 5 most recently added stores and featured products/stores that the administrator can change/update
Look at bigcartel(dot)com before bidding for this project and make sure that this is something you can do.
I will need to see similar projects that you have completed. Please ask as many questions as you need to, I expect this to be an ongoing conversation-type project.
