Let the company propose a solution

Half finished project, then no contact.

Paid $1400. Website was started and ready to test. Nearly nothing worked. Can't edit orders, can't create new products, and much more. Some work was done to try and fix it, but we've now had to moved to a pay per month cart as no contact for months. Anne is apparently in the USA, but Pakistan was where work was done. (IP address)

User's recommendation: Don't use!

Website Designer Fraud/Thief

Picaflor Azul - Website Designer Fraud/Thief
Buyers beware: On Jan 18th 2018 I paid Anne AKA Jennifer Espinoza of Picaflor-azul $830.00 to do a responsive website for my business. Just read below we made the payment per the agreed terms for a 3 - 4 week turnaround and I have nothing but the missing money. Here we are June 20th. I have sent her multiple emails demanding my refund in full. I post I want a full refund and I get nothing back I have all the emails to show how unprofessional this woman is and how many other customers have been ripped off and stolen from by her as well. www.facebook.com/pg/Incredible.Websites/posts/?ref=page_internal Zen Cart Design @picaflorazul Here is the email from Anne: On 2018-01-18 , wrote:Quoting info@***r-azul.com: John, Completion time is approx. 3 - 4 weeks once I receive everything that I need to complete the job.

I would like you to install the Responsive Sheffield Blue v2.0 template I am Not sure what the correct logo size is that you need. I did attach a copy of the Logo. If i need to resize please let me know. or if you just want to resize to what you think looks good I am ok with that, your the expert. Thank you for your help and taking the time with me to answer my questions John, Hello ;) Yes, I believe that you would still have to upload the large image or else there would be nothing to magnify. If you name your large images the same as the small images are currently named, they can just be ftp'd over to the server and they will replace the images already there.

I think i need one last question answered before we proceed. With the image handler as you outlined below am I correct that I would have to go back and upload new Bigger size images for each product I carry 5000+? If I had you install Magiczoom would I need to do they same. IE upload new bigger images for the site? or will Magic zoom work with the existing images I have?

Same problem. Paid $1000s for an upgrade and it was left half done.

Can't add categories, edit orders or use the site anymore. No more replies for 2 months.

Have had to shift to Shopify just to get open again. And shift 8000 products etc.
