we are in need of a programmer who has experience with wordpress (and if possible also with the woocommerce plugin). This project should not be highly difficult, as there also are resources and some pre-work by the woocommerce support.
We have purchased a wordpress theme (â€œMayashopâ€). This theme supports multiple different widgets. To establish the ecommerce functions, the theme runs with the popular free â€œwoocommerceâ€ plugin. This plugin adds the entire product category/archive ; product detail and shopping cart functionality to the theme. This means one can simply add products and product categories in the woocommerce interface.
However, the woocommerce plugin falls short in terms of some functions, which we are in need of.
Core Problem and necessary Changes:
The core problem is that the woocommerce plugin does not allow adding customized descriptions and widgets to its product categories (it is also not seen as a page by the Mayashop theme, so one can also not add in any content over the themeâ€™s menus). This means, we cannot have an individual page design per product category (e.g. we could not have a (SEO) description text in the woocommerce product category â€œAâ€ and another one in the woocommerce product category â€œBâ€).
We are in need of being able to add widgets, text etc. to each product category separately.
I believe there are 2 ways of achieving this:
1) Either one is able to implement the woocommerce product categories into the Mayashop Theme so they appear as simple pages --- then one could simply add widgets etc to each category.
2) By modifying/creating the woocommerce product category template, so it is 100% flexible. So when creating a product category in woocommerce, one is able to add text and widgets to the specific sections (so top, sidebars and bottom)
We have already consulted woocommerce support and have also received feedback (here for the solution to create a template):

[url removed, login to view] and
[url removed, login to view]
We are looking for the easiest solution. Either by somehow integrating the woocommerce product category design and functions into the Mayashop pages OR by creating a template page, based on the woocommerce templates, which allows us to add our content for each woocommerce product category. Of course any other solutions are welcome!
Attached please find a simple screenshot for further clarification
You will be given a copy of the Mayashop theme and of the woocommerce plugin. This should be all which is needed to come to the result.

Please give us some feedback before bidding. We are also in need of other changes, so we are looking for a wordpress coder who is interested in a long term relationship.
Thank you very much,
