The e-commerce site must put all artisans who want to sell their crafts in direct contact with all potential customers who want to buy them, thereby eliminating intermediation in this type of economic transactions that disadvantage artisans. Artisans should have the possibility to publish their own products and contents in the store, but they will be helped to reduce the complexity of the sale by managing the logistics of the payment and shipping system.
The platform must be conceived as a large market and virtual community where the buy of a craft becomes a cultural experience. The objective is to enhance the artisanal production in Mexico, highlighting the tradition, meaning and process of making each craft. Unlike other online stores selling handicrafts, direct contact and interaction between customers and artisans, as well as social and cultural contents that are related to the craft activity will be privileged.
The store must include 3 main users who must have differentiated sessions:
1) customers (buyers)
2) artisans (sellers)
3) advisor (people who advise both artisans and clients in cultural, commercial and financial matters)
There must be 4 levels of possible interaction:
For the interested developer there is the possibility of maintaining a medium-term employment relationship. It is necessary for the developer to display his portfolio. The quote must include the cost of putting the store on the air, although the cost of the domain and hosting is at our expense. Technical support must be efficient and cheap for the subsequent adjustments that the store will register.

• Customized and scalable design and structure in terms of sections and functionalities.
• Must have a simple and intuitive navigation and interaction that is easy to understand
• Must have communication channels (forums and chats) between different users, in addition to communication with administrators. All communications between customers and artisans must pass through the site, and may not exchange phone numbers and addresses within the site.
• There must be a tool to detect and eliminate unwanted communications and information.
