I want to start an e-commerce, but I don’t have web/app developing background. I took several courses to get me started so I can communicate with developers. I need the web to be done by end of Dec, and the app to be done by end of Apr. My plan is to hire a full-stack developer. However, I will also continue my education in full stack development.
Before I ask my questions, here is a brief description of what I need to be built:
1.A web+app with at least 4 pages
a.Front pg + Products (20-30 products that may be changed once every 6 months)
c.Login + Account info (Store customer data including CC info, use Paypal)
2.From my online courses and research, the following tools would be great for this job:
a.Web front end: Bootstrap + Angular
b.App (Android + iOS) front end: Ionic + Cordova
c.Back end: Node or PHP
Here are my questions:
1.I already have a detailed design with clearly defined specs and functionalities of the web and app. What do you think would be a reasonable time in hours to develop 2a, 2b, 2c? Please indicate your yrs of experience if you don’t mind. The answers might vary significantly depending on the person’s experience.
2.Are there better tools than what I mentioned?
3.Are there any particular areas that I need to pay attention to if I hire freelancers?
4.Given the timeline, how many developers do you think are needed for this job?
Thank you very much for your help. Your answers are very important for me. If you need additional information, please feel free to pm me.
Thank you again,
