My small e-business is growing and my website needs to grow with it. I started with a self made website using 'antenna web design' software, linked to 'Mal's e-commerce shopping cart'. I now need a proper ecommerce website with the basic shopping and admin features (order history, combine previous orders, wish list, shipping notification, inventory based on paid orders, and VERY importantly, printing out tear-off shipping labels and invoices on 1 page, etc.) I also have a large amount of product info to display, and the layout would basically need to follow my original website. I prefer a quick loading website, using text links, instead of images. The site needs to be search engine friendly (.htm catalog which links to the .asp pages). I also need to maintain my original .htm links, so that I do not lose my forum referrals and search engine ranking. The cart needs to link to PayPal AND 'BuySafe' (a Taiwanese version of PayPal). 'Buy Safe' is easy to link to, and has clear English documentation with their requirements.< Once the website is designed I need to be able to self upload products, categories and product details.

Dear bidders, this is the first time I have used RAC, and I am still finding my way around. I want to thank you all for your bids, it will take me some time to look at all your samples of work. However, I have realized one thing. By having a ecommerce / catalog site designed for me, I will lost control over many aspects. At the moment I am using a simple site that I have designed myself with a WYSIWYG editor, the best part of it is that I can put "buy now links" anywhere I want, and they link directly to a remote hosted secure shopping cart (Mal's ecommerce cart). I have therefor put this bid on hold, and have placed a second bid (Bid Request Id: 935409). If a coder is able to do what I want, I will have no need for an ecommerce site, if this is however not possible, then I will go back to looking at the ecommerce site. I base this decision not on cost, but on the ability to have complete control of my site at any time. I invite you to look at my new bid (Bid Request Id: 935409), and hope that someone is able to make this work. So far 48 views but no bid offers :-( Regards, John
