For the sake of not wasting anyone's time, let me be clear up front on what I do not need:
** I do not need a website designed. ? We already have a website, and it is nicely designed.** ? We have a database mostly built. ? We are using PHP to talk with said database. ?
And let me be perfectly clear as to what I do need:
**I need a coder that will act as a collaborator with me, and stay in daily contact with me as to progress, what needs to be done on my side, until the project is complete.
I am looking to make a decision with a day or so.
Now, let me give a brief synopsis of the project:
The site is a paid listings directory covering a few related fields and industries. ? Businesses pay to list monthly, from the date of their initial listing payment. ? That's it - it should be pretty straight and simple.
Coding work to be done: ? Paypal integration, account login for updates and changes, shopping carts set up for listings AND advertising,? registration page, a bunch of menial coding tasks.. ? Some MySQL setup, possible reconfiguration. ? You handle the codes that make it function, I'll handle the design
A LOT OF THE WORK HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE. ? We just need someone to finish it off.
We would like to see this up by the 1st of January so that we can start our phase 1 marketing. ? If this is unrealistic, there is some extensions we can give, but not much.
I am willing to discuss hourly rate, or total job estimate, and even a small "thank you" bonus if this can be done by the first of the year.
We don't have a lot of money, and need to keep our costs low. ? My partners won't shell out any more bucks, so this is coming from my own pocket-lint.?
Serious inquiries only. ? Experience a plus, but know-how is king. ? Will respond privately to requests for more information.
I WILL BE ON SKYPE ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT - SATURDAY. ? Myotch is my skype name, and I will provide more site information there.
