I work on an e-Commerce software project, and currently specifying the architecture (front-end/back-end/data layer) as well as the specific features of the software. These will include:

  • Credit card processing
  • Stock management
  • Sales reporting and analytics
  • Shipping calculation
  • Customer reviews, product ratings
