We want to create a website that offers one product daily to members. The product is available for members to buy each day until sold out. The product changes every day at a certain time each day. The first page of the website should feature the product with photos of the product. Other functions on the website should include a forum for members, a log in section for members (and a database for our company), a blog, incorporate a shopping cart system using a third party payment merchant, and the ability to have automated emails sent to members each day. The site would be a variation of [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] but would be without advertising and would have a number of changes suited to our company and region. The site would be built on open-source software phpBB for the forum and osCommerce or similar for the shopping cart.
In addition, we would need to have substantial backend access to the site so that we can upload new products/descriptions in advance. For example, if we have 2 weeks worth of products ready, we would want to have the option of uploading all 2 weeks worth of products in advance with the product changing to the next available product each day at a specific time. We would have to be able to input the number of products available (out of sight from the public) so that the product would sell out automatically when the limit is reached. As in the above sites we would want a general section with product specifications, a blog, a forum, a FAQ section and a contact us section in addition to a refer a friend option. We would also want to have a contact us section, For further information please email me.
