If you hosting allows WordPress to be install, then you could hack it together yourself, but if going with a web developer, there main things to think about would be
- Back up your current HTML site
- You would be installing WordPress + Woocommece (WooCommerce is the eCommerce plugin for WordPress)
- I wouldn't go with a freelancer that quotes hourly (I always quote per project). As this is your business there will be future work on the site, SEO, security patches. You should be looking for someone you can have a good partnership with
- Also check into grants that could be available for this
I have seen lots of varying on the quotes and I have varied a lot myself. But you could be looking at putting in at least €1,000 for the project.
When getting quotes make sure to check that they aren't charging for hosting (this is if your current hosting does allow WordPress) and they aren't charging you for a theme, as you already have this
