We are seeking assistance from developper(s), preferably in the Los Angeles area to do a complete re-write of an existing custom shopping cart from a flat file based cart (improved flat file) in perl to a full fledge possibly mod perl/mysql cart.
The actual shopping cart is being outgrown by the traffic volume at a rapid pace, and we need to find a solution asap. The new system should be "clusterizable" and should be able to handle 40,000 visitors/day and up.
The existing shopping cart has many features:
Client side: tell a firend, search tool, manufacturer search, item flagging (new/special etc), shipping calculation, cross selling etc.
Thanks. Although I had looked for open source shopping cart, I did not found this particular one. It seems very promissing. Are you used to setup developpe for this particular software? Where are you located?
Anyone has good experience with this software? Can it really handle very large traffic? Does its architecture permit for clustering etc? How flexible it is?
We are still interested in developping the new cart from scratch... but this is definately interresting.
The nature of this project may make it difficult to work on a "out of the box" solution...
We would rather explore the possibility of developping the software based on the existing cart with the underlining importance of handling lots of traffic (not clear oscommerce is strong in that). Also, part of the project might require to be in the Los Angeles area.
