I want to create a penny auction website similar to that of [url removed, login to view] and www.bidrodeo.com. I do not want a cheap rip off and have a couple templates of what I want to look like. I want it to have the same concept as the sites listed above but I will be requesting different additonal features. Below is a summary of more or less what I want.
*User registration and account verification
*Buying bid packages
*Paying per bid and the price increasing by a set amount
*The time increasing by 10 seconds everytime a bid is placed(ability to change this in CMS)
*General pages such as terms and conditions and a help section which I can edit.
*Ability to add pages at my own free will
*Ability for members to login, update their account, purchase more bids and pay for auctions won
*Payments are to be automated through Paypal only
*Fixed priced auctions and variable priced auctions as well
*Ability to give users free bids
*Ability for users to receive bids for registering, winning their first auction and for buying bid packaged for the first time
*Add, edit and delete articles from the latest news page
*Content Management System (CMS) - ability to add, edit and delete multiple auctions
*Use macros to start, stop and publish auctions
*View the winning bidder and update the status of the auction e.g. pending, running, ended and completed.
*View, edit, add, delete and suspend users.
*View users bidding history, purchased bid packages, add free bids to the user and refund bids for the user.
*Manage the entire website content such as the terms & conditions and help page content.

*Address Book importer (To invite more and more people)
*Rewards points system (when packages are purchased)
*Credit back on lost bids (Users get credit for bids on lost items to pay for won items)

*Nail Biter (Auctions without Auto Bids)

*Product Inventory (Add a product once and then create as many auctions as you want)
*A suggestion page/order form
You will have to complete both the front end and back end of the project along with the Admin and User account settings as well. You will be working with me to create and design a logo for the website and be in charge of completing the entire site layout and its functions.
Since I am new to freelancer, I do not know how the system works here with bidding and whatnot, but I need to know:
* how you like to be paid
* if there are any contracts involved to ensure security on my end
* how long it will take
* you must have a valid portfolio of your work with reference numbers
* I would need constant team support and communication
* Designer/Programmer should be familiar with AJAX, JOOMBLA, HTML, PHP, etc...
This is all I can think of at the moment. Any questions please don't hesitate to ask and I hope to find someone who can do this job for me.
I do not understand this whole bidding process, so no one please jump right into bidding.
