    Hi guys.

    I got my first client. I need to do a Webstore, for Kid's shoes.

    But there are some prerequisites that the client needs. And I don't know what platform to use. I'm comfortable with Wordpress, but don't know if WP can handle all the stuff that the client needs.

    Here's the list:

    The client gave as example the Crocs Website
    and the Geox Shoes site

    ? It will have to have filters for easy navigation: for example we can filter by (size + color + kind +price + .... + ....)

    ? In the article detail page, he needs several photos from the same article AND one must be able to zoom the article while the mouse over the photo Example: ? He needs to have a "Friend brings Friend" system, like this one: This system need a simple backend so that customers knows how many points they've accumulated so far, bringing friends.
    And the Client need to check those, as well.

    Does WP and some plugins manage this?

    Appreciate your help, guys.

    Greetings !

    I will not suggest since WP will not get you what you are expecting ...go for Magento you get all what you are looking so far we have gone through the site you posted . the reference site is too detailed so better to have full understanding from client since yours is 1st client ...Magento is also tricky to play around but u can do all what you need for this client . We have done almost 20 + eCommerce site for client with customisation.

    As far as WP u will not get the exact plugins to manage all at once

    Regards
    Adroit

    Hi No.Rulez.
    Fist off all, let me tell you that my last post was exactly what I meant. Later I saw that paople were very angry because they didnt pay for a long time (I run out on the day they payed me late). Didn't mean to upset anyone here, or be an asshole with other people's misfortunes.
    I really earned a lot from them, and the Aff's there always helped me, when I needed it. As you can see I didnt talked about the owner. The rest of the team there didnt get their payments also, and they were always responsive to me. So, I really enjoyed the help provided by them. That's all. And the -rep that people gave me here is enough. Don't need your sarcasm.

    Thanks anyway for dropping buy and take the time to see what I wrote before, in order to help me or not.

    You need to switch over other ecommerce platform as WP do not support such plugins.

    Good to know that, you got 1st client with -68 rep points.. I guess that wasn't from BHW.. :)

    Anyways, Do very best for your 1st client!


    Cheers!
