I have a few questions about the limitations of Shopify and whether your platform can accomodate my website functions.
I'm looking to build a dating website, with user profiles, search tools matching users based on certain criteria, price plans for the website's service, user profile restrictions based on plans purchased.
Can you advise me on whether your platform can provide these key functions? If so, how and with what tools?
I'm a web designer, so if it's light frontend coding I can manage.
If these functions are not possible can you advise me on an alternative.
I am Scott.
I have a group of PHP developers with me and we have an experience of about 10+ years. So its always a pleasure to help you people out there.
Shopify is an ecommerce platform and it hardly support functionalities of a dating website. As Shopify has some limitation in customizing functionality at code leave so customization is also challenging in shopify.
It's better if we do this by using some other plateform instead of shopify because we need to manage many thing in dating website rather than normal ecommerce system.
Other platforms could be Wordpress or any other PHP framework.
I have a very basic site on Joomla, just for the reference purpose: http://alphachristianaupair.co.uk/
I suggest you to visit it once and come back with your findings or else you can add me on skyp-e at cis(dot)scott so that you can share your complete requirement and inturn i can help you better.
Hope it will help you.
This is exactly what I'm looking for! Funily enough I'm creating an AuPair agency myself but was using a dating app as an anology for the functions I need to spare confusion.
What platform is this built with? Is this kind of project possible with Wordpress?
I've added you on skype, please proceed to answer through that channel.
It's great that you can create a side project yourself! I didn’t think about creating such a site, but sometimes I use online dating. For me, a very important thing when I choosing a site for online dating is the security of personal data and protection from scams. Nowadays, there're a large number of dating sites, but not all of them will properly approach this issue. Therefore, I use applications such as Tinder or trusted sites like this one for example. I’ve been using it for several years, and it’s very convenient there're reviews of people who used it, this allows to choose the most suitable option and most important- it's safe! But if you create a new good site, let me know, I'll definitely try it
