PEMBA is a lighting retailer and automation dealer. I am interested in a Magento Community E commerce web site and an automated way of getting product information as well as product pictures onto a new Ecommerce web site [url removed, login to view] which will be linked to the updated pemba web site pemba.biz.
We have price lists in excel and pdf and have some access to pictures from manufacturers. I have a web site [url removed, login to view] that I developed which is hosted by VistaPrint.
I need the following help:
1) design the Ecommerce portion of our web presence with the goal of making it easy to add product information and to keep our monthly costs down.
2) develop a process of getting new product information for our eCommerce site- would like an automated process as we do not have staff to keep this up and prices change at least twice a year.
3) the process may need to be to automate using web scaping to get pictures into the site and for regular updates.
. so goals: 1) get ecommerce going with 5 product lines to start 2) develop this to generate lots of sales, 2) is easy to maintain, 3) has lots of flexibility, and 4) does not have expensive costs from cart services.
note: As a lighting showroom we use xologic service to sell online and allow customers to send us wish lists. XOlogic is good about product info but have limited product information and we can't add to it. Also their service is expensive. I like xologic's functionality but don't like how they present the information. If you go to [url removed, login to view] and shop online you will see the XOlogic online sales. We do not get sales this way.
Also we are a unique company and we sell: lighting and automation. We also provide design and engineering services for lighting. We sell and design lighting controls. We sell and install automation systems such as Savant and Fibaro. So image is important. I am not opposed to multiple web sites but I am looking for creative help on the strategy to do this and then someone to get product on the site and give us a way to maintain or employ you to maintain. I would like to hear how you can help and hear about examples of work you have done before. thank you
I like the web site [url removed, login to view] for image and because you don’t need to go to a new page for product you can keep scrolling down
I have attached a document that has E commerce web site requirements and notes as well as some sample product price files
I would like you to submit how you can help and hear about examples of work you have done before. thank you
