looking for developer for small site with file uploads

Hi everyone, I have a project I could use the assistance of an experience shopify developer on. I'm building a simple e-commerce site for a company that sells customized DVDs via the web. I am interested in using the shopify system if it can meet our needs. The system should allow the user, during the checkout process, to upload multiple photos, along with a brief description that will be used in the customized DVD they are ordering. Somehow, these photos would need to be tied to their order. A close example would be the following site: http://www.milospetpaintings.com/ They have an upload capability during the checkout, though I'm not sure how it's tied together. At the moment, our site would only feature one product. Though, this could expand as time goes on. Please contact me as soon as possible if interested. *This is, of course, a paid gig :)* Developer must available starting next week. We'll have about a month to pull this together. Thanks!

@hmnick,

milospetpaintings.com uses a wufoo account to produce the Photo Upload form you see on their product page. The way they ‘tie up’ the photo uploaded to wufoo with the order is through the information collected via the form’s submission, i.e. the required email address. FYI. No rocket science involved.

This can be achieved in 10 minutes flat by yourself. Wufoo tells you what to copy and paste on your web page. You go and edit your Shopify theme online to paste this code snippet in your product.liquid template.

No coding required to create the form in wufoo. They have a great UI for this.

The better way to do this would be to offer the upload only after an order is placed to avoid spam and customer confusion.

Wufoo’s spam policy: http://wufoo.com/docs/security/#spam

They must have made big improvements. When they first started spam was bad. I ended up switching everyone to jotform for the spam issue and also for getting away from the iframe. It does seem zippier now. I remember waiting and waiting on their servers to load the iframes and slowing a site down. I may have to re-look at wufoo again. Are you using it/happy with it Caroline?

I use it, or should I say 3 of my clients use it, and they’re happy with it. Or is it 4. I think Wufoo uses a service like akismet. A robot-server that gets smarter and smarter thanks to its users who submit ham as spam, or spam as ham. The robot-akismet sever is corrected/trained by its users to recognize spam.

Human spam is bad. But human spam is smart… well… most spammers have a very weak brain as we know… But human spammers spam for the purpose of creating link juice. Link juice won’t happen with a Photo Upload form.
