Hey there, I'm looking for a reverse auction website script to be created, similar to www.uniqueauction.com. (please visit the website and have a play around to get a better understanding of what I require).
What is a reverse auction?
A reverse auction is an auction where the bidder places a bid that they feel that no one else will bid i.e the lowest unique bid. Therefore if I placed a bid of $0.01 and someone else placed a bid of the same amount it wouldn't be unique (because two people bid).
Every auction will have a minimum number of required bids, once this is met the item can be sold. A bid fee will be charged per bid, this fee will be charged in credits which can be purchased through the website using paypal.
Once the auction closes the bidder with the single lowest unique bid is the winner of the item. In the event that there are no single unique bids then the "most unique bid" would be the lowest number with the least amount of bids that was picked first.
> Admin cp to add/edit/delete categories/auctions and manage users, including the ability to ban and e-mail them all.
> Ability to setup "promotions" such as voucher codes, signup credit and special credit match bonuses.
> Usercp for members to edit their profile, buy credits using paypal, refer a friend and earn credits, enter voucher code for free credits and a summary of items they're bidding on.
> Registration page with e-mail verification.
> On the homepage there will be some "featured" auctions, an area showing auctons closing soon and a menu with the various categories.
I have a detailed specification going into more detail on the above points. Please provide a quote and time estimation.
Payment can be made by paypal but I would like to see a working demo before hand.
