My website that i am currently designing is similar to a CSA platform website. Which stands for "Community Supported Agriculture"
This will be the design of the back end of the website. The platform side for the users, and for the farmers.
Basically, users will sign in and they will have a profile with their personal information displayed to them. They will then be able browse the website by category for farmers. They will be able to select from a drop down and select how to search through the farmers on the website. Browse by produce.
Example: Potatoes, Meat, etc.
There will also be a Farmers side of it as well. Which is separate from the users. Right now, at this time users can register on my website, and they are "consumers" I will need a separate registration for Farmers built. Which in the database will be separate, and when a farmer is logged in they will have a different interface than a regular user.
The Farmers side of it is what i will call the "Farmers Panel. The user side of it i will call the "User Interface"
The farmers Panel will have features such as:
- An "Orders Tab" where all orders placed by users to that farmer, will appear in this list.
- The farmer should have the ability to "reject" an order which will send an email to the user who placed the order, notifying that the Farmer has rejected their order because the Farmer is out of that item.
- Each Farmer account will be able to create their own "farmers page" which a farmer can edit and type, add pictures etc. This farmers page is where the farmer can tell the story of their farm, etc.
-The farmers panel will also have what i call the "Newsletter Platform" which will allow farmers to easily, with no computer skills needed create a newsletter that they can choose when to send out, Automatically, once a month, once a week, on a certain date, at a certain time etc. and it will be sent out to the email address on file for every user who has purchased food from that specific farmer.
The newsletter should allow, withing the browser the ability for the farmer to add text, templates and graphics and images to create a stunning Newsletter in their browser, simply and easily
Their will be many more features added, but this is the main outline. Basically my website will be an experience where users register and can shop fresh produce from their computers. And where farmers can easily and simply use this platform to receive and manage orders, and most of all, connect with their customers.
Serious inquiries only, as this is an entire Platform i need designed. I look forward to speaking with you all, and happy bidding.
EDIT: My website is based on Joomla. Just some information i thought i should provide.
