We want to move from our existing ASP ecommerce store to a PHP based one. We prefer using a wordpress plugin (WP Ecommerce or other) as we have experience maintaining Wordpress but are open to suggestions of other shopping cart solutions as well.
There will be no new design element involved as the current front end and cart design would have to be ported to the new system.
The existing store is at indianhanger.com. All existing functionality needs to be present in the new store including:
Multiple pictures per product
Coupons and other promotion options
Gift card system
Products on Sale
User accounts as well as adding to cart without account creation
Integration with Paypal
Integration with 1 international credit card payment gateway
Integration with 1 Indian credit card payment gateway
Category, Subcategory & Vendor wise product segmentation
Advanced product filtering (category, vendor, pricing etc)
Easily build landing pages for a product set, an event or a vendor
automatic shipping calculation and currency selection based on country
Good SEO out of the box and SEO friendly URLS
XML/RSS feeds of prodcuts that can be fed into google base
Flexible and efficient checkout procedure
newsletter integration (mailchimp)
Hide products temporarily
inquiry form on product pages
zoom-in product with mouseover
The front end design should be the same as the current website (plus some changes our designer is working on but we will not require any design input from the developer). All data (including product details, categoriees, vendors and users will have to be migrated from the old setup to the new one.
If you recommend a non WP based solution, please mention your reasons why its a better option.

The current ASP version of the website has a table heavy interface. Although the frontend design will remain the same, we would like to convert it into a table free (as much as possible) interface with proper separation of design and code. Please ensure that your bids reflect this. Thank you.
