The project entails a FULL FEATURED shopping cart solution based on the following criteria:
(1) an outright purchase - not pay per month
(3) EASY TO USE
(4) suitable for business-to-business invoicing - no credit card
(5) suitable also for receiving online credit card payments
(6) able to produce search-engine-friendly pages
(7) COMPLETELY customizable via HTML and CSS only - absolutely no other languages
** See more criteria in the deliverables section **
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform (i.e., the ipowerweb hosting service) 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
A solution is needed by Thursday (Sep 18, 2003) that behaves as described below.
When a "customer" directs their browser to the client's home page ([url removed, login to view]), the "customer" is presented with several main business categories from which he may select items to purchase. These main business categories are represented on the home page via simple HTML links.
Upon selecting some of these main business categories, the "customer" is immediately prompted for their unique username and password. If the "customer" enters a valid username and password combination for that particular main business category, then that "customer" is presented with the first of many product pages associated with that particular main business category. You can see an example format of the product pages (a SUB category of a "main business category") via the link: [url removed, login to view] (note the links to the example SUBcategories on the left). The "customer" is then able to submit an order for any or all of the items in that particular main business category. The "customer" shall not be able to enter or see product pages for any other main business category unless their unique username and password combinnation is also authorized on other business categories. The client will provide each "customer" of this type, via regular mail or other means, a unique username and password combination that the client will log into the shopping cart administration screens of the shopping cart software.
Other main business categories listed on the client's home page ([url removed, login to view]) do not require a login procedure until the "customer" has already shopped and "filled" the shopping cart via the associated product pages.
All visual features of the shopping cart software (i.e., all visual aspects of the shopping cart that a "customer" can see) must be customizable by the client with knowledge of only HTML and CSS - absolutely no other languages.
The shopping cart access needs to allow, for example:
* customer A to see all subcategories (e.g., sandwiches, frozen items, etc. as shown on the example product page) of ONLY the specified main categories accessible by customer A (e.g., ONLY "main category 1" as will appear on the "[url removed, login to view]" page)
* customer B to see all subcategories (e.g., sandwiches, frozen items, etc. as shown on the example product page) of ONLY the specified main categories accessible by customer B (e.g., "main category 1" AND "main category 2" as will appear on the "[url removed, login to view]" page)
Both modified off-the-shelf and REPUTABLE custom solutions will be considered. Only responses that can provide references (names and phone numbers) will be considered. The intent is to purchase a shopping cart solution this week and have it online by Sep 20, 2003. Only "top coders" with more than 50 successful projects and with at least 20 successful shopping-cart-specific installations need apply.
The shopping cart program must work properly on the "ipowerweb" hosting service ([url removed, login to view]).
