Hope I posted this in the right place. I'm in the process of moving my grand father's business online as he's slowly running it into the ground and really needs help if it is to survive.
Therefore I'll obviously need an online store; so I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for web designers and/or hosts (preferably all-in-one) based in New Zealand who are capable of creating a great looking online store that looks like it's in the 21st Century, but who are also reasonable web hosts too?
I've so far sent off quite a few requests for quotes but only Zeald and Avatar have gotten back to me. Zeald wanted $10,000 (!) for their services, and Avatar are drawing up a cost break-down. But does anyone have any recommendations, or are YOU a web designer who would like me to throw money at you (but not $10,000).
For those who need it, this is what I'm looking for with the site.
- Interactive Slideshow of Latest/Popular/Sale Items
- Product Category Search Menu
- (Ideally) Wordpress-Integrated Blog
- Secure Shopping Cart Capable of Member and Guest Transactions
- Newsletter Script
- Help With Online Marketing
- Page View and Click-Through Database
- Currency Converter
I think that's everything for the moment.
