Basicly I have a document (eBook) that I plan to sell and I want to be able to insert the buyer's name into the book/document where it needs to go, then make a PDF of the modified document and email it to the buyer automaticly. I would like to do this from a web site for the product (I currently use HostMonster).
If you have any ideas of how to integrate the process please let me know.
From the buyer's view it would be like this:
Go to the web site from a link or typed in.
Got to the purchase page and enter an email address , the name you would like to appear in the eBook and payment information.
Click confirm if everything looks correct.
Get a reciept via email with an attachment that is the customized eBook in PDF.
I would also like to capture all purchaser names, email addresses to create a mailing list and some location information to be able to plot on a map where people are buying from. The mapping can come later but if it is simple it would be nice to have it on the landing page with totals from each location.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
This should be optimized for internet access on the vast majority of platforms. My current web host is running Linux but I'm open to any suggestions.
