Joomla C2B Matching System Component
1. Consumers want to get information about products or services from professional providers in their region.
2. Businesses or providers want to get in contact with consumers to offer to them their products or services.
To bring these parties together and to find the right matches based on matching profiles I am looking for a tailor made Joomla component to do this.
So from one Joomla installation I would like to control multiple (product or service oriented) websites where consumers can fill in forms for requesting services or information about products.
All form field data should be stored in one database where each product or service category has its own table.
On the same website providers of those services will be able to register themselves and after acceptance they will be able to define their own profile for the matching system.
They will also be able to design their own advertising page, which will be presented to consumers when there is a match.
They will also have overviews of actual matching contacts and further business.
All provider data will be stored in the same data withing category tables.
There will be two types of providers.
Providers with a signed contract and providers with only a registration and personal area.
Providers who signed a contract after registration will be in a preferred position and will be in a position to offer their services at first to consumers.
They will be invoiced on a monthly basis.
Registered providers will be able to offer their services to consumers when not enough (4) contracted providers will match with the consumers profile.
Operational: A consumer will fill in a form on the website to find a matching provider (ZIPcode, subcategory, size)
A first macthing result will be presented to the consumer about the availability of (sub) category contracted providers in the chosen area who can deliver services of a particular size.
The consumer can decide if there are enough providers and will fill in another form with more details and also contact information.
After email confirmation of the request form the consumer will get access to the personal webpages of the matching providers.
Matching providers will receive request information and contact information.
When not enough contracted providers are available matching registered providers will be invited to present themselves and to make a proposal and will have to pay directly for receiving the contact information.
So payment system should be implemented. Paypal or equivalent.
The admin should be able to control everything from the backend.
Looking for an experienced Joomla component developer.
System is not very complex and can be seen as a form handler and matching system.
