Project Description:
****you MUST have extensive experiences developing and modifying Joomla extensions****

My company sells guided tours primarily for Asian customers. I have an existing Joomla CMS http://www.bskytravel.com/ all setup for displaying and searching the tours, now all I need is a checkout system that integrates with my existing web pages.

\* Checkout process for customers */
Calendar with pricing and availability overview -> select # of passengers -> hotel room distribution -> pickup location -> drop off location -> tour pricing calculation (visual breakdown) -> checkout (Credit Card & Offline Payment option)-> optional registration -> form for customer information -> payment options -> confirmation email

Here is an example of my competitor that does exactly what I am describing above (Scroll to the bottom)
http://www.lltours.com/cgi-bin/v.fcgi?nm=1598&a=product_view&p=4788#inclusions

\* Order processing */
receiving order notification -> review order
1. Confirm order (charge credit card)
2. Pending order (limited availability, waiting for offline payment)
3. Cancel order
send notification via email regarding order status

\* Order Management */
a panel showing all orders with color codes, status filters, order state and departure date sorting
Statistics (to be discussed, a matter of combining tables)

\* Data Entry */
- Pull all the articles under designated categories and list them as individual tours
- Set pricing structure & dates (I should be able to input repeat patterns like how it is within Google Calendar)
- Set available seats per tour & waitlist
- Optional items (such as airport pickup)
- Input departure & arrival locations (independent of the price)
- Pricing rules (Buy 2 get 1 free)

\* General Requirements */
- You are welcome to utilize and modify existing POPULAR Joomla Components with my approval. Here are some of good ones I like

* Breezingforms + ContentBuilder CCK
* RS Form + RS Event
* Jom Social http://www.dragoman.com/ is a great example
* Payment Form

- Surpass the checkout experience (Feel and Look) in every which way in comparison to http://www.lltours.com/en/

- No Joomla Core Hack - Fully compatible with Joomla MVC Framework. The Extension you build must work on a fresh Joomla 2.5 installation and compatible with general Joomla Extensions.

- Multi - Payment gateways support (Paypal, authorize.net)

- I must be able to import/export all data entry records into CSV files (For Example, Tour, Dates, Seats, Single Cost, Double Cost, Triple Cost, Departure Location 1, Departure Location 2, etc etc)

- Call the front-end module within articles
<div>{Checkout_Calendar_ArtcileID|settings}</div> -- this would pull up the Calendar corresponding to the Article ID
If you want to wrap everything into one module and assign it to a template location that is fine too, as long as everything looks good and works well

I am looking for a long term partner, I don't like to shop/hire around. If you prove your self very much capable you will win all my businesses.

Lastly, if you can please show
* Portfolio
* E-commerce Sites +
* Booking Sites ++
* Joomla Extension Experience +++

Skills required:
AJAX, Javascript, Joomla, MySQL, PHP
