Have pre-existing established e-commerce website (php/mysql). Was working closely with 1 programmer for past few years, now he's up and disappeared so trying to develop new relationship with a freelancer to keep site improving/growing.
Happy enough with site but need to add some improvements - this project can easily lead to multiple improvement projects if we can establish good working relationship, decent english skills are a must for long term partnership.
I currently accept credit cards and paypal at checkout - but would like to add a robust/intelligent feature to allow customers the option to pick up product at one of our multiple physical locations.
Besides a slick box to choose 'Pick up at Store West' or 'Will pick up at Store East' - code will also need to know to NOT charge s&h options when customer selects store pick up, and depending on time of order generate on the fly information letting them know (product will be available for pick up after 1:00pm on 5/18/11) - (product is only physically taken to locations twice a week and this information needs to be able to be changed from an admin point of view for weeks with holidays, emergencies, etc.).
Since we also allow some customers to pay via money order - this option needs to NOT be allowed when customers select in-store pick-up - items must be paid for before hand.
