I don't really want to wait too long for this, so I am primarily looking to leverage work that has already been done. Or an existing (working) script that is modified to include the details that i need.
I need a seated auction script prepared. I already have 2 different penny auction scripts (both work) So one of those can be used.
Here are the details...
The User will need to register and pay an entry fee in advance to enter an auction, entry fee to be set in admin.
Each auction will have a cost of entry to be added via admin.
There will be a set minimum number of participants for each auction to be set in admin.
User can only start bidding when timer counts down to a pre-set time (for example: last 5 minutes) 'start bidding' time to be set in admin.. ALSO.... A message in red font appears to say 'bidding in process'.
Each user will have a set amount of bids automatically credited to their account (1 to unlimited) to be set in admin.
Once bidding begins, user must be present (no bidbutler).
Auction ends same as penny auction or will have an auto termination time where last bidder wins after cutoff time.. forced termination time to be set in admin. This will be a time setting such as (this auction runs for a maximum of 3 hours, or 20 minutes or 24 hours).
Once auction ends, user bid accounts restored to '0'
User may join in any other auction that has an entry fee which is LOWER than the entry fee they paid for an auction. IMPORTANT!!... But once the auction ends that the user originally entered, then their account is set to zero and can no longer bid in other auctions.... ALSO...User can not join ANY auctions unless their originally joined auction is in 'bidding process'.
If you already have a seated auction script, or something close to it.... i will almost certainly award the project to you.... Time is the important factor. Please give details if you have any of any work you have done in this area.
I will only pay on completion, i will not use s/l escrow, i have been burned in the past. I will pay with paypal, and I may pay by milestone.
Must be php based and mysql, as i already have a good working knowledge of both as so can locate errors easier.
