We are looking to have a website with features like Antiques.com and the payment options and features of the website Tias.com. Antiques.com does not allow online purchase of items. Tias.com, on the other hand, allows purchase transactions through Paypal and Google.
The website will be called AntiquesandTreasures.com. This site will allow other antique businesses (businesses) to publish and build their own website within AntiquesandTreasures.com, with the use of multiple website design templates to build and design their own site (features like Tias.com. We are wanting to charge for this feature (using Paypal) and would like to control how much we want to charge later In the future. In the beginning, we are going to keep the site free to generate business.
These antique businesses can tell where they are located (with the use of googlemaps), hours of operation, share pictures, how much they charge for space rental, etc.
Small vendors (dealers) can also set up their own website (like the website Tias.com (or something better), with multiple easy website templates to show where they are located, what dealer spaces they are located in, and what store they are located at. Again, we are going to charge to use this feature and control the charge amount but, in the beginning, we are going to keep it free as well. They can upload, edit, and delete pictures and information, and can add classifieds to their website (personal store) and their listings get listed on the main website AntiquesandTreasures.com section as well.
What we want added to AntiquesandTreasures.com unlike Antiques.com but like Tias.com is for the option of putting a price of what they want for an item and people can use a buy it now option or the potential buyer can submit a best offer option (using Paypal or Google as a payment processor). We would like to adopt like payment features and options used in the website Tias.com. Seller lists if they will ship the item or the item needs to be picked up. Each seller basically has their own admin section where they have control over all their listings, contact info, store, etc. Of course, all classifieds being placed by businesses and vendors will be indexed and be picked up by search engines for more traffic and increased sales.
In the owner admin section, we need to be able to change the layout of the website and be able to change all category names and links. We need the option to fully customize the website as needed (fonts, themes, wording, images, links, accounts, products, etc.) and control all the features of different sellers and businesses as well.
