[url removed, login to view] will be an international EVENTS CLASSIFIEDS website for theatre It is under construction.

In addition to making money from theatre ads, we also want to take a percentage of each ticket that is sold.
We need an online booking and ticketing system. A plugin.
Our website and all the services we provide will run automatically without moderation.
So the software you design for us is to be used by people who know nothing about coding - our customers. It needs to be intuitive and clean.
The software will have a FRONT END for ticket buyers and a BACK END for people who advertise events.
A 100x100 empty square grid will allow someone who advertises in our 'What's On' section to layout their seating arrangements for their audience. The seats will be green circles, and things like the stage, tables, bar etc will be grey. An automatic numbering system that works either vertical or horizontal should FILL the seat numbers based on where seat A1 is located. Text needs to be available so they can label things. Instructions on how to use this 'Seat Gridder' should be provided for them with a sample seating layout.
The advertiser will then select what kind of tickets are for sale. Adult, Child, Concession, Group 10+ should be alterable defaults. Next to each ticket type, the advertiser will insert the price.
The exact date and time of all performances will then need to be provided.
They will then provide their paypal account details and check an agreement box. I will write this agreement later.
When a user looks at an ad on our website that is selling tickets through us, they will see the seat selector at the top of the page and be able to choose the date of the performance and ticket types. This will look the same as the finished product the advertiser created but there will be no grid lines. Seats they select will turn red. By default they will be green. The total payment will be visible to them as they go. Then they click Pay with Paypal and pay.
The money will go directly to the theatre company. They will pay me afterwards as per the agreement.
The buyer will receive a ticket by email, and the advertiser will be able to access their database any time they log in to their account.

If you bid for this, please offer a suggestion of what else would be needed, such as special needs boxes for Vegetarian meals and Wheelchairs, or other imaginative ideas you have. Better still, provide a link to similar work youve done. Also let me know if you can make this software a plugin that will work on Wordpress and Joomla as well as the software already on Theaternetwork.co.
