We want to build a kind of shutterstock for designs (see patternbank / patterndesigns ) .
How it works :
Designers upload there designs (300dpi JPEG and zip with JPEG + Vectors, up to 100MB). Once approved by admin, designs are published and for sale to clients. Clients the design they like to their favorites or/and add them to cart. Clients pay with Stripe (3DSecure) and download the designs paid. Our company create the invoices in its name with or without VAT depending on the address and legal form of the client. Designers can ask for payment when they reach 50 Euros. We send payments per wire manually.
We would like to work with wordpress because we are used to this software and it seems pretty much flexible than other ecommerce softwares. It could be run together with woocommerce .
For the theme, we like Elementor theme builder because it's pretty easy for us to pimp the theme but we fear that it could lead to heavy load pages. The 2nd solution would be that the freelancer uses a lightweight woocommerce theme and customises it to feel our needs.
We want to work with a trusted freelancer (or team) that can understand our need and move forward pretty quickly.
We would like customized development on the "image" part of the site (upload / product page / list of product page) so that the site can display the images pretty fast. The rest of website could be devloped with popular (but reliable) plugins so that it can be developed faster.
We would like to get a first version in May/June so that designer can begin upload their pictures. Client should begin to buy pictures in July.
