NOTE: If you intend on creating this with WordPress, do not place a bid.
NOTE: If you do not have a passion for up-to-date UX and UI design trends, do not place a bid. (This is an example of quality interactivity [url removed, login to view])
NOTE: Domain, hosting, branding, SSL, etc will not be required. I've got those sorted.
To all those web developers who hold a deep appreciation for gorgeous design and elegant functionality, please read on. I'm on the hunt for an individual or team of experienced developers to create me a minimal, yet beautiful e-commerce website for the sale of digital goods, specifically, video games. Thus, to my proposal:
Before beginning, please inspect these two websites: [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view]
I'm sure, almost instantly, you'll recognise the layout and style that I am seeking: A boxed layout that utilises the full-width of the screen. The use of the right amount of white-space is perfect, specifically in GOG.
Moving through the features, from top-down, we start at the header. It's important to note that [url removed, login to view] is what I'm trying to achieve. The fixed header at the top of GOG is perfect: Non-intrusive and functionally serves its purpose wonderfully. That mega-menu: WOW.
An image slider is critical, along with the ability to promote 'deals' around the slider that have the ability to contain a countdown as shown in GOG. I need to maintain customer retention.
The filtered product list on both GOG and Kinguin is the component I love the most. It's a very basic feature, but in my eyes: rather effective. This needs to utilise AJAX/JSON functionality to keep the customer on the page without a refresh.
The headlines/news/blog next to this filtered list is also perfect for SEO and maintain customer retention and interaction.
Onto the category pages for the products: A dense filter system of the products is absolutely crucial. This also needs to utilise AJAX/JSON for a seamless, same-page filtration.
Product pages also need to be designed beautifully. GOG does this perfectly. A good amount of media, with all the crucial information placed densely throughout.
An account page is a must, with an elegant dashboard for their profile and purchases. Additionally, a 'wishlist' is also necessary.
A forum is not necessary at this point in time. However, if something like the 'community wishlist' is possible, that'd be legendary.
Regarding the delivery system of the games: I'll need to integrate a REST API (that I already have) to the store in order to dropship the products instantly on the completion of the payment.
Payment methods/merchants: currently, Stripe is my go to. However, I'll also need PayPal (braintree) if possible.
