We are looking to create a more simpler version of the eBay research tool found at the homepage of www.andale.com. The output on the Andale tool is much more than we'd need. We just want to be able to go to a web site and type in a description (i.e., Palm Vx) and it would then output an average price for that item over the past X days and then provide links (to the eBay auction) and descriptions of these items. We would probably want to look at only Completed Auctions so as to ensure we are getting valid data.
There is a free eBay SDK you can download at http://developer.ebay.com. It's a pretty slick SDK and provides some simple functions which appear to work well with whatever language you're using.
I basically just want to get the average bid price for a given item over some period of time. If anyone has any familiarity with the eBay SDK or wouldn't mind getting up to speed on it, please bid.
I suppose we'd prefer to have the code written in VB Studio .NET C#, but if you're more comfortable getting this working in another language, that's probably fine.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
----- Added the following to this description on 1/11/04 -----
I forgot to mention the following:
1. This would only need to be coded in the eBay "Sandbox" and it will not be necessary to pay the $100 to work in the production environment.
2. We will, however, need the code to meet the eBay Certification Requirements listed here: [url removed, login to view]
3. We only need the basic functionality coded for use on the web. We will then take that a build a UI and look and feel around it.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
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).
Windows XP, but the tool will need to run on within any standard web browser.
