I have a client who is trying to imitate Etsy.com. Need to clone the idea.
The purpose of this site is to have a multi-vendor ecommerce store. Every seller needs their own admin/control panel area and also an area on the site which would be designated as their store and only their listings would be seen (ebay stores, or etsy seller pages). The only solution I've seen for this is using Wordpress MultiSite. I don't know if a multisite set up works in such a way that items are viewable outside the sellers own installation. How will you create a backend where buyers and sellers have the tools available to them to properly manage their accounts. How would you handle creating a "shop" or "store" for each seller (http://www.etsy.com/shop/loverdove
Need a good solution to determine the next steps and to build out the site. I prefer it's on Wordpress, but I know it's limited so we can do PHP. I can provide a custom design but need it programmed. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Skills: ebay, etsy, design
