We are in the need for an E-commerce shopping mall. The shopping mall must allow for multiple shop owners. The shop owners must be able to log in and manage their inventories, product descriptions, and images. The mall will carry up to 500 E-merchants, with 50 merchants ready to sign on at initialization of the project. The backside administration must run on a network, allowing admins to log in and add/delete/administer accounts. The front side will allow merchants, once setup, to log in and manage the content of their personal shop within the mall. Management must include the ability to lay the page out with copy text and images, and manage the pricing of items. A method of collecting data and analyzing the success of each merchant account must be included, so that our merchants can receive reports on the success of their E-Mall Shop. Payments will all be made through a single central merchant account, or possibly allow the merchant to add their own payment methods.
The E-Mall must integrate with our current template engine (in-house developed). This includes using the existing authentication tables, client table etc.
2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. Or installed on our servers, since it is a Web based application
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).

PHP/MySQL applications in an Apache/Linux server environment. The application will be Web based and able to run on any machine with IE 5 or newer browser. This is a large project. Only serously experienced coders need apply. You must include several links to completed work, or be able to prove your ability in some other way. The Successful completion of this project may earn additional projects that are currently in the planning stages.
