We are looking for a developer capable of building a PHP group buying website.
The functionality of the site would be very similar to the website www.groupon.com, and prospective bidders should be very familiar with this site.
The site would consist of approx 14 pages, and would need parts of it to be edited on a daily basis through CMS.
The site would have to be able to take payment via our merchant banking service/paypal. The potential complexity for the site would be that (as with groupon and other collective buying sites) the deal does not go through until a predefined number of people sign up for the deal. This involves ensuring that customers are only charge once and if the deal reaches the required number of buyers.
The site would need to have the possibility to upgrade to building a database of user profiles, as well as to expand into other cities after the initial launch in London - to be discussed.
We have the initial graphic design for the home page, but the designs would have to be built up from this for the other pages. We also expect to include Facebook Connect, Twitter and LinkedIn interaction as seen on similar sites.
A full and detailed spec is available, and will be sent on request to selected bidders.
We would like bidders to supply references, budget and projected timeline. Please get in contact if you are able to bid. We are looking for a business partner to work with who we can trust in the long run to help us grow, and who can build us a website for a low cost in a short time in order for us to launch the site as soon as possible.
