I need a script that does the following:
It is the meaning there is a “live” auction script. What I mean by this is; a visitor comes to my website and can see an auction of a product. He or she sees the product that is up for auction, and can see the bidding system. Let’s say we have a mobile phone up for auction, then the visitor sees a photo (or more) of the mobile phone, and the detailed description.
Underneath the product up for auction there is a counter. This is the current bidding price for the product. The pricing is reversed so the price starts high and ends lower then the starting bid. Every 60 seconds the price is lowered until someone clicks on the “Buy Now” button. When the “Buy Now” button has been clicked there can be made 5 bids above the first bid, however this must be done within a time limit of 5 minutes after the last bid and the first bidder always gets the opportunity to make a higher offer then the last bid made.
To start bidding on a product a visitor must be registered, so a registration script needs to be implemented. There also needs to be a reserve price on which the product won’t be sold.
There must be complete catalogue script on which people can enter their products up for sale. Let’s say it is now, March 01 2006 and the next auction is on April 01 2006, then people can bring in goods (uploading photo’s and place description), until 10 days before the auction starts. To bring in goods a person must be registered. The products that are brought in will be catalogued into the right category, and can be viewed by potential buyers. Every product must get a unique product number.
Now lets say there are brought in 500 in the time people can bring in items, then on auction day these will all go up for sale. This must be a automated process, so the product must come up for auction one by one. This process must take place on one page, so the bidders do not have to switch between several pages. One item comes up for sale, gets sold, and after the sale (lets say after 30 seconds) the page refreshes and the next item is up for sale. This must be a selected series based on the unique product number.
When an item doesn’t get sold, and the reserve price is met, then this item gets automatically put up for auction the next month. All the other products get archived in the sellers history off successful sells. When a non-seller is put up for auction two months in a row and still is not sold this product gets placed in a sellers unsuccessful sells folder. Both the system administration and user administration must be well detailed.
For the script there must be a complete user administration, and system administration. There need to be good statistics and much options to give the users. The script needs to be template and language file based. The security must be good, and server load must be low. I need the script to be written in PHP with a MySQL database. There must be a web installer for the script which will guide you through the installation. Scripting must be clean and well documented (no messy code). The design for the system will be provided by us, so there is no need for web design.
I have more detailed information in some documents which can be obtained by serious bidders.
I am looking for a team of developers who can make deadlines. There is a deadline of 30 days for this project, so you will probably have to work with more then three developers. The budget for this project is $4000 however there is a catch. Since this product is client based even for us, we can not make escrow or upfront payment. Payment is done within 14 days after delivery off the product!
So if you are a serious bidder, and agree with the above terms please respond. Biddings that do not meet these terms (price and deadline) will not be taken seriously and will not get selected.
When you reply take the time to make a proposal on how to handle some off this scripts function based on reading this description. I am looking for a development team that is creative in solutions, and not a team that simply does what is given in the project documents.
