Please refer to the enclosed project specification.
VirtueMart with Joomla have been installed on the website. However, the configuration according to the enclosed spec is incomplete, and the previous developer quit before finishing. Now, I also have discovered that the multi-vendor feature of the VirtueMart project (not this project) is itself still under development, a "work in progress."
I don't care which cart software we use, except as follows: In order to consider you for this project, please explain which cart software you recommend which will:
A) most elegantly achieve each feature in the enclosed spec, and
B) do so at the lowest overall cost and time.
So, you could:
1. continue to modify VirtueMart,
2. install a commercial multi-vendor package and modify it as needed, or
3. choose another open-source solution to be modified.
Also, when you reply:
C) quote the cost to implement 1, 2 or 3
D) quote how quickly you will do 1, 2 or 3
E) address all other items in 1 - 17 of the enclosed spec.
