I'm looking to build an online bookstore project that will sell books to a variety of buyers who will need to create accounts to make a purchase. I would also like to open this format up to sellers other than myself, so I would need sellers to be able to create accounts and manage their own inventories. The sellers will be responsible for their own shipments, but I would need some way of informing them that they have made a sale. Payment received would most likely be through PayPal at first, but I'm considering other online payment gateways. I would need a way to manage both payments received by the buyers and payments I would make to my sellers, minus my commission. A search option would be included that would allow users to search by multiple fields such as title, author, condition, publisher, date published, price, or seller, and should be able to search across all seller inventories. I'm basically looking for a project similar to <[url removed, login to view]>, but on a smaller scale. My question is: Is there a pre-packaged version of a multi-seller shopping cart/inventory database program out there that I could purchase and configure to do this, or do I put it up for bid and have someone build it for me?
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) Exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site).
This will probably operate on a Windows2000 server across IE and Netscape browsers.
