We want to develop an auction site where:
1. Bidding on an auction starts at say 0,07$, with no reserve prices.
2. The price only goes up by 0,07$ with each bid placed.
3. If a bid gets placed in the final moments, the time available to bid gets extended by up to 40 seconds.
4. There’s a small charge for each bid placed.
The site will have to be very interactive in order to:
- allow the users to see what the other users are bidding
- allow the users to bid
Towards the end of the time available to bid there will be a peak of activity among the users.
Besides the logic of the auction the site will have to include standard features like:
- user registration
- user account management
- purchase of the credits to bid (paypal and visa)
- management of the credits
