I have made this in macromedia all pages are dwt tempalte based

I like the flow and constant calls to action of this site
[url removed, login to view]
I would like to have a comprehensive php based contact page for customers to contact me.
The PB logo is not changeable but the color scheme can be.
I will provide a staging server to upload the lot to
please do not email a pasted bunch of information as these are deleted straight away and reported
if you reply please write in your own words and how you prefer payment
We would like to use JShop out of the box commerce as the base for the site
We like this software suite because we have already paid for the liscense and it does 90% of what we require from a site.
It has built in features to change the language and the currency.
Documentation to this software can be found here: http://www.jshop.co.uk/jssdocs/jss_documentation.pdf
We have our own MiniServer set up to that you may work on one box, then load to another to test and finally we can have fresh installation so house the site for the user.
We will enable payment gateways for this site at a later date
We will not be employing a secure server for this site as it is not a requirement
We prefer fast loading css styles sheets with smart html for a design base. Heavy graphics are not needed
When building pages we strees that they must be focused on three keywords per page. This can be reflected in the image names, alt text, page title etc. We know from past experience that googl indexes jshops quickly (that is in the design)
A brief on the company:
ProBay is a Online Sales and Management Company
We have a very niche market
We target struggling online sellers and businesses that have sellable product but mostly we target brick and mortar businesses that have no online presence or are looking for a channel to market to unload distressed stock.
These channels are places like eBay.
Therefore because it is our business to sell - the probay web site has got to sell itself on every page and call to action on every page.
We want to give the impression that there is no other company in our professional that could do this job better than us.
Themes are boldness, confidence, and straight to the point.
We believe that less is more and our design should reflect that.
This is why www.ameritrade.com is a very attractive model for us.
The message is clear and the structure is very clear and simple.
All the content on the current site is good enough to start with
Ideally all the content would be easy to change and upgrade at will on our end.
If you could duplicate this in a suitable format that would accomplish our goal.
We like the idea that we have a customer log in
We would like to encourage out customers to login so that we may gather some information from them and then give them a follow call with a brief assesment of what we could offer them.
We would like the banner system enabled and advertising out clients with direct links to product
For people that dont want to register we would require a form (again this is already set up in jshop) that would ask all our questions to contact a client.
The main Flash Movie that is on the index page - if this is something that could be fine tuned that would be a plus
we have a very difficult time showing what we do without lots of text - a flash movie would be great to descripe the company.
Moreover we are looking for a hot shot to learn the Jshop because we have many projects an although we could do this we are not the best suited for it. The probay.co.uk site was done by us and we are sales people not web developers. Having said that we understand the difference cause the truth be told we love to make sites and understand MYSQL but find ourselves lost quickly.
success on this project would lead immdeately to www.musichotline.com.au then www.comsecgroup.com.au and so forth
One colluegu of ours has installed this system sucessfully here www.aireguitars.co.uk
