Hi masters, I need your help!
I've got great products and a great idea. However I miss that very important person who can make my idea a reality. As I don't know what skills I should prioritize in a partner I desperately need your recommendations before I can post a job ad.
Please bear with me as I explain what I need in less than fluent English and without technical terms!
I need a clean looking online store, were function and form is equally important. It needs to be available in several languages and currencies. The product availability in the store changes depending on the region settings. There are two types of products sold in the store: downloadable material and customized products. In the customer profile, the previously purchased downloadable material needs to be stored for the customer's later use.
For the customer to order the customized products, a user friendly function for the customer to change the appearance of a product, directly in the store, will be necessary. With ease the customer must be able to see what the ready product could look like in a different color or with a different pattern, and place their orders from this function.
I'd love to see the store work on several platforms (mobile) if possible.
So, if you know, please tell me what skills I should consider obligatory when looking for a partner!
Or should my focus not be the experience but the creativity and artistic skill of a potential partner?
Would you say Elance is the right place to start looking for a partner? Other recommendations are very welcome!
Finally, what is a fair pay to offer for this job? As a professional, would you find it interesting to be offered a relatively modest sum for the initial creation of the store and then a fair part of the company profit for as long as you stick around to help out?
I'm extremely thankful for your help!
