Improve the sales management of my website
I need a programmer to improve the management and functionality of my website. My website is HTML based and its got a sales system on it, I also have a shopping cart available in PHP. I need you to help me to make the website with the sales to run automatically by itself. Itï¿½s like this: I want to run my website only by changing the products on it, or ad more text or some pictures, just simple and basic things because the website donï¿½t have much more to do, the major thing is with the sales. I need you to make the sales run by itself in a way that I just have to insert the products that I want to sell, could have or not a sample that could be a simple image or a video sample, with the price, descriptions and a few more specifications. Then it will be added and upload to the server, from that on it will be available to sell, so far so good.
To buy the product the buyer needs to sign in, or needs to register so it needs to create automatically a database of all the buyers and members. That database must be simple and easy to manage in a simple software (it could be an text editor or could be a Microsoft Access type of program), because, I need to use it to know who are my clients to create a clientï¿½s file.
After they purchase (after they pay the product) the product will be downloaded, so it also must be automatic and hacker free system.
If the buyer purchased a product that itï¿½s not downloadable for example a cd, he only pays and order so I should receive an email or notice with the details of the buyer, in order to send him the product.
On the case that they purchase the product and download it the website needs to invoice the receipt (only for downloading products), so this also has to be automatic. Must be able for me to change the details of the receipt.
At the end of each day I should receive a complete report about the sells, how many, which products were sold, from where (country/region, etc.)
I must be able to change easily all the prices, put or change the promotions and the website will accept and manage all the changes on the prices and sales system and also receipts.
The buying system must be kept very simple and easy to understand, you can ad all the payments methods as long as:
- They are reliable and work well all the time
- Hacker free solutions/system available
- Easy to make the payments
The site administration must be very simple, very easy to understand and manage.
I donï¿½t need you to redesign the layout of my website because Iï¿½ve done it. Just use what I have to make it better, more effective, more efficient, more automatic and more self-sufficient, you can use my shopping cart and manage it in order to become effective and perfect for this purpose.
You could ad some Joomla based if you want to or similar but needs to be easy to manage from a MAC or you can use any other type of structure as long as you can make it like the requirements and implemented with my HTML pages.
So my routine work should be:
- check the sales
- receive the daily reports,
- check the website if itï¿½s efficiently working online or not
- ad new or more products or remove other ones
- and thatï¿½s it.
You have to tell me which ways are better to make a secure payment, I want to avoid risks with the transactions, tell me the best solutions for payments. I have trough paypal page, To make purchase they will have to login to Paypal to finalize the purchase to my paypal account which makes the purchase secure thru the Paypal https server, when the purchase is final. They will then be taken to a download link once paypal approves the purchase. The screen will tell them something like "Click to Continue With Purchase". Then they will have an automatic 1 time download
To become a member/register - After sign up for membership, a code is sent to member e-mail. This will be initial password. They can change it after entering the site.
This is good but if you have better suggestions and more secure tell me.
Remember Iï¿½m open to any ideas about how to improve the website and the sales, how to make it better, more effective, more efficient, more automatic, more self-sufficient.
Probably A BIG PART OF THE JOB IS ALREADY DONE.
I work with a MAC not a PC, I have the TACO HTML editor I don't know if it's very similar with the PC ones, but consider that difference and tell me if it will be different from a PC editor.

Additional Info (Added 8/20/2007 at 4:57 EST)...
I need you to make a product management system in my existing html or you can develop the structure the way you think it's the better solution that will take our business to the next level, if you know what I mean.
I need the whole process automatically from users side.
It could be a simple but powerful admin panel. Through which admin can manage(add/edit/delete) product,product category,product subcategory,product description. Manage users(can block any user), manage sales(look how many products are sold). Bulk email to users, Print the daily sales with all the information related to sale.
You could develop a content management based site so that I can manage everything from the admin area and I don't need any 3rd party aplication such as notepad (I can manage the customer info from the admin area) or html editor (I can do it directly from the admin area).
You can do anything as long you meet the requirements and create a successful, effective and efficient project.
Tell me your ideas, tell me what you think.
