You have chosen to sponsor your bid up to a maximum amount of .
This website is at its core a craiglist/gumtree/freelancer/ebay/peopleperhour type website where businesses will post a listing in a category and users will be able to search for that listing in a category and then buy the service. Not all services will be available for purchase some will just be adverts.
The actual listing results of the adverts/services should be laid out something like the results on www.autotrader.co.uk with the same distance from your location functionality implemented.
I will be selecting the person/team to do this very carefully so please don't send me generic bids.
Please can you tell me what type of web technologies you will be using to create this site in your bid.
I also have a detailed specification and wireframes to get you started right away with the project.
There obviously needs to be a dashboard/my account area for:
1: Website Admin
2: Website Users
3: The Users that create the listings on the website.
And a profile page (like the freelancer one) for Businesses/Users that create listings on the website.
The website will need to accept and handle recurring payments and 1 off payments. Have payments histories, be able to cancel/manage payments etc. I will be using paypal and other CC processors so the site will need to be compliant with all UK/US/International rules for taking payments online.
The site will also need to show listings by location (postcode, town, city etc) so a good grasp on Postcode query's and MAPS API is essential.
The Website users (businesses) that create listings on the site will need to have a membership. There will be a few different types of membership ranging from free to fully paid membership. The Website admin will need to control which type of membership can use what features, as only some memberships will allow certain features.
There will be all the usual type features you would expect, such as reviews (a cross between the star system on amazon and ebay ratings), listing/advert upgrades etc.
Please add "npi202" to your bid if you have actually been reading so far.
Things to keep in mind.
The site will be receiving lots of traffic within a short amount of time so will be needing to upgrade from a VPS to a dedicated then to a cluster when needed. So the site will need to be fast loading and the database will need to have proper indexes and queries so that it doesn't slow down the server, therefore the programming will need to be clean and very good. Ease of moving the site/database to a different server is also a must.
On receipt of milestone payment all data (including coding/design & anything else you have done for me) will become my copyright.
I have a few pages of wire frames to get you started on the design side of things.
The design will need to use bootstrap to give that 'new web' look to the website.
The whole site will need to have excellent SEO and admin editable SEO options. I would like the individual listings and businesses profile pages to be indexed on Google. Also no php? links I want a properly laid out linking structure please.
Please only bid if you can:
Show previous experience of this type of work
Communicate via speaking on FREELANCER.COM at least once a week for updates and queries. All other communication can be done via typing on FREELANCER.COM .
Be able to give a quick half-weekly updates (can be a short voice call or typed)

I will be willing to pay more than $2000 if the website can be designed to a very high standard with all the functionality I am after, I am very focused at the moment on the functionality and programming of the website at this point. Please tell me in your bid exactly what you can do.
