I need to upgrade to the latest version and fine-tune the Credit Card Gift Voucher contribution (CCGV) on my highly-customized OsCommerce store. If you do it well, I will have a ton of work for you in the future.
The store URL is www.glass#$of#$venice#$.com (just remove the #$).
1. General considerations
• I am a programmer in the past and will review your code. Do not create dirty patches, do it right. If I just needed to install a couple of MODs and fix cosmetics, I would have done it myself. I need you to test everything you do inside-out. And when you are sure you tested everything and it works fine, TEST AGAIN!
• No Payments and no escrow until the work is finished. Check my feedback – I pay promptly as long as you deliver. I need a stable responsible IT partner for long-term relationship.
• You will create a copy of the Production database, and call it glassofv_oscDEV. This AND ONLY THIS is the database where you develop. Then you will create a folder /DEV under root, change htaccess and configs, and point it to the DEV database. This will create the development environment. This is where you will develop and test your code. You will never touch the code or database in Production unless I test and approve the change to be migrated. Only after my approval, you will migrate the change(s) to Production. If you like, you can develop on your own server and then sync with this DEV environment so that I can test.
• Every change you make, you will put two comments, one before and one after, like this “// Change by <YOUR NAME> on <DATE>, and what the change is for”
• I will create a file on Google Docs and we will share it. For every byte of code you change, you will update this document with the line numbers where you made the changes for each file you touched. For example: /[url removed, login to view]: 10, 202-213, 500-550
• No bid is accepted unless you state in your reply “I have read and agree with all items under “General considerations” section.
The CCGV MOD was installed a while ago and there have been modifications to it since then. I need you to upgrade to the latest version, then test everything, especially the gift vouchers. I need users to be able to buy and use gift vouchers, i.e. full gift voucher functionality of CCGV mod. As a user, I need to be able to buy and send a gift voucher. As a recipient of the voucher, I need to be able to pay (partially or in full) with the voucher, and see what the remaining balance is. We will discuss cosmetics when we get the mechanics to work. Please include this cosmetics piece in your bid.
The coupons and rewards points portion of the MOD works fine but after you upgrade, you need to retest everything again and again, including coupons and points.
After you install and test everything, I will test it, We will fix all outstanding issues and cosmetics, and then you will move it to Production.
