I am seeking an assertive and professional individual/group with years of experience with OsCommerce and strong PHP and MySQL programming skills to customize the default OsCommerce store to specification.
1. Custom modification of the default OsCommerce store to approximate the uncoded template. The template, which will be provided to you once you are selected for the project, resembles templates available for purchase at [url removed, login to view] or other such stores. To re-iterate, the uncoded template and all related graphics will be provided once you are selected for the project. Although the entire site is expected to be finished in the style of the template, only the index page and product page will require extensive custom coding.
2. Implementation of a rewards system, cross-sell module, unique font usage, banner ads, separate pricing per customer, and a related links module. Although custom PHP coding will be required, the majority of these features have been completed already in the form of contributions, which I will direct you to.
3. Miscellaneous concerns including setup of an autoresponder and an automated system for emailing orders to suppliers. Again, much of this has already been done but will require some augmentation to suit my needs.
4. A professional end-product that is SEO friendly (not optimized), compatible with the latest browsers, easy to maintain, and has well commented code throughout. I also request that the service provider be available for contact up to 2 weeks after completion of the project to handle troubleshooting or other issues.
This is a demanding project and though I am unwilling to negotiate a higher payment than what is being offered, the details of the project are certainly open to negotiation. Upon selection for this project, a detailed specifications sheet will be provided that covers all expectations of the service provider. Thank you.
