I am an amateur VB.NET programs, just moving from VB6. What I need is some modules created that I can add to my application already under construction. We would like them to be strictly XML based so they can easily be revised for future eBay and PayPal changes in the future.
We will provide the source data tables, the modules need to be used for on timer or on button click events. They need to do the following:
• Add new auction item
• Test auction item – responds that all fields contain proper data and also returns the listing costs.
• Revise auction item
• Update auction bidding activity, bids, views etc…
• End auction item
• Fetch PayPal Payments and buyer data
All auctions will have pictures hosted elsewhere than eBay other than Gallery picture which will need to be posted to eBay.
Each modules needs to be documented within the code and have extensive error handling including readable explanations for returned error codes.
We assume they can be simple HTTP XML posts and the response need to be parsed and entered and new records in the database. Again we will provide the tables with fields for the sources data and location to insert response data.
We are open to other ways of exchanging data between eBay PayPal and our applications but want to keep it simple and XML is what we feel is the best.
We are hoping there is someone who has done most if not all of this type work and can provide the modules at a reasonable fee. If all go well we will likely have greater opportunities for the developer.
