We are small retailer of higher end women’s casual clothing and accessories. We have been in business for approximately 8 years. We currently have a shell of a website which is not ecommerce enabled. Our domain www.thegreenappleboutique.com.
As soon as possible, we would like to create a website in Shopfiy that will be or online presence and allow us to sell online. We are looking for a fairly basic solution that will allow us to get started quickly. As a starting point, we need to be able to list 50-100 SKUs. This will be a mix of products, and much of it will be apparel, so we need the ability to specify different sizes for each SKU that is apparel. Some of the items will be accessories that will not require sizes. We would also like the ability to expand up to 250 SKUs. Because we are retail store selling the same inventory to our retail customers, we need to have the ability to easily manage our inventory regardless of whether the sale comes from our retail store or our website.
On our existing website, we have the following categories: Home, Core Box, Tanning, Shop, News, About Us, and Gift Cards. We would like to include all of these on the Shopify solution if possible. Some of them will not be fully functional to start with, but we would like to have all of these options included and we will work with you to bring up each one of these categories after we have established our ability to sell via the website.
The option called “Core Box” is a subscription service. We send out boxes of custom selected apparel to these customers on a regular interval, and customers can keep all of the pieces they receive, or pick and choose, and return any or all items they do not want to keep. I don’t know if there is an existing Shopify app available to manage this type, but I know many other retailers offer this type of service.
For payment, we will use our exiting Square account so all sales from the website would be processed through Square.
For the appearance of the website, we are fine with keeping the same look initially, but would like to improve that as well as part of the next upgrade. Right now, our top priority is to have a site up and running that will allow us to sell our first grouping of products.
Another service that we offer at our retail store is tanning. We would like our customers to have ability to schedule tanning appointments via the website. I don’t know how easy it is to plug in an existing Shopify Appointment Scheduling app but would like that included if that doesn’t slow things down too much.
Finally, we would like this set up so we have access to add and delete SKUs, descriptions, images and manage the inventory.
Please let me know if all of this is possible or if you see issues with any of these requirements. Additionally, please advise on the time frame to complete the site as described, along with the cost. We need the ability to sell online as soon as possible. Also please list your experience working with Shopify and Shopify apps. Thank you for your help.
