Require a PHP developer to provide modifications to a shopping cart
catalog. Site Builder experience a plus. The project will require direct
edits to two catalogs (two pages per catalog; 4 pages in all, but 2 pages
will just be copy/paste whatever you did on the first 2 pages), very
little table management (adding one column to a table), and perhaps a
For someone who knows the catalog, I believe it shouldn't take any longer
than about 4-8 hours, and could even only take a couple. For someone who
doesn't know the catalog, because it's fairly straightforward code, it
probably still won't take too much longer.
The concept is to add a new field, "Shipping Cost", to the "Add/Edit
Product" page (on the admin side of the catalog). This catalog uses the
Mals shopping cart, which has built in shipping, but the client would turn

the order button). It would then get added to the order total when the

Add/Edit Product page, but it won't help for what they're looking for.
Although I want this added to 2 individual sites using Site Builder, I want whatever I need to add this modification to other Site Builder sites down the road.
