We are looking for quotes to design a web site for our new on demand book printing service.
The closest comparable site is blurb.com. We already have developed the downloadable software for laying out Photobooks etc and this will be integrated in to the web site.
The web site will undertake payment processing for the books ordered; payment will be via Google Checkout, PayPal or our existing Merchant Service, or a combination of these.
The site will also allow users to upload pdf files for printing like lulu.com.
The site will also have a bookstore allowing users to sell and publish their own books. Users will be able to set their own sell price for the book.
The web site will need to be able to calculate not only the price of a book but also the postage costs based on the number of pages in a book.
This is a very outline brief and we are in the possess of developing a more detailed brief
We are open to the site being designed in PHP or a .NET language.
