Experience Level: Intermediate
The website in question currently contains approximately 50 products see notes below.
The plan is to covert the site into an e-commerce site enabling customers to buy product through the site.
Basic functionality / buying process
Each product will need buttons to allow customers to "add to basket". After this point customers will see a summary including a product description and will have the option to amend the quantity ordered. Customers also need to be able to review their purchases by clicking %u201Cview shopping basket%u201D where they can amend the quantity of items or remove items. Having added one item a button should allow them to %u201Ccontinue shopping%u201D. Finally having finished shopping a button should allow them to %u201Cgo to checkout%u201D after which they complete their address details and proceed through the payment phase. This is also an opportunity to capture their data to be used for marketing purposes. At this point they would virtually set up an account if possible within the brief. The purchase link is individualized to each product and includes the price, product code and description which is passed to the shopping basket. The review purchase function means the customer can check on the items ordered. They can also proceed to the checkout. These buttons will be placed below the product code on each product page. I would like large buttons in the companies%u2019 colours.
We will be using Paypal%u2019s functionality but I want this to operate in the background at no point should the customer feel they are operating outside of the companies website so in the Paypal payment section only the companies logo should show. I understand this is feasible using Paypal or through Paypal Pro.
Terms and condition pages need to be added as well as a page which thanks clients for their support which they see after PayPal has accepted payment this will have a standard piece of imagery included which I will supply.
Additional requirements, please quote seperately
Look and feel
The existing site has been designed to be a simple but well presented environment and the additional functionality and icons should continue in this vain. Buttons should be simple, well designed (within reason), large and clear and work within the existing brand identity.
Additional products and amends
Would it be possible to arrange for some copy amends and some additional products to be added approximately 10 which allowing for multiple sizes of some items will leave us with about 50 products?
Moving forwards there will be ongoing product additions.
Out of stock / special offers / clearance
Also we may run out of certain items so it needs to be quick, relatively cheap and easy to outline items currently out of stock and advise when more is expected or a link added to ensure direct access to the contact page to find out when more is due.
In addition we may run special offers from time to time. This needs to be quick, easy and relatively inexpensive to achieve
