I need a fully operations auction website developed for me.
The site will primarily feature one kind of product being auctioned.
The website will be available in many different languages (English, French, German, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, and many more...).
I will have full control of creating the product categories, and various subsequent conditions, options, and features available for products depending on which category they were listed in.
Naturally, the website will have a registration system that will enable visitors to register, and subsequently sell their items on the site. Visitors will also need to register, in order to bid on items.
Standard auction elements will be impletented as well (types of payment accepted, communnication/email system, etc).
eMail system will be encrypted, to prevent direct communication between the sellers, and buyers. Basically, when contacting a seller (or buyer) their email addresses will not be visible, and communication will be possible only via the website directly. Posting email addresses anywhere in the body of the email messages (or auciton text, etc) will be detected, and automatically removed, by the website.
The website will have a payment system setup, that will bill users for auctioning their items (the fees, etc, will be presented to the project developer, once the project begins).
There will be an age verification page in the signup process, with a system in place designed to ensure users are at least 18 years of age or older.
Sellers, will have the option to list their items in auction format (select number of days for the auction duration, opening bid, etc...) OR sell their items as a "Buy Now" price (and again, duration... 1 month... or Until Sold, etc).
Uploading images, item description, will of course be standard, and part of the user interface, when they wish to sell an item on this auction site.
Naturally, this is a large/complex website, so if I wanted to cover "every" aspect and element of the website, it would literally require dozens of pages of text. The above points cover the major elements of the site. Other aspects, considered "standard" or common, among most online auction websites, are assumed to be included in this project description, whether written or not, implied, or otherwise. By placing a bid, you will be in agreement with the above.
The project will be considered complete, only when the website is live, tested, bug-free, and functioning online, with full capabilities as outlined above. Full imprementation onto a server, configuration, etc, will be your responsibility.
Please ensure that the admin side, developed for me, will be as "WYSIWYG" as possible. I do not undersatnd any html/php, or other coding languages, so I want to have the ability to control the website, using as much of a visual approach as possible.
As is always the case on ScriptLance, I'm certain I will be flooded with standard cut and paste resumes, from people who barely even read the project description. I will only consider bids from programmers who convince me in their private message, that they have a real understanding of the project. I will of course consider your feedback, your bid price, delivery-time, and understanding of my project, when making my decision on choosing a programmer (or team).
