You have chosen to sponsor your bid up to a maximum amount of .
This will be a web based business to business platform that allows users to post product listings, send bid messages (not an auction house... just messaging bid terms) and search products. You will develop this initial platform and create a working, user-ready version.
Here are the target base features:
-Internal message service to include a blind bidding function (basically just a special messaging function that sends over bid terms)
-The ability for users to upload product pictures
-Ability for users to provide product descriptions
-User feedback forms for each page
-Unique user ID/Passwords
-Basic account analytics (what has been bought, sold, etc)
-Function for users to sort and search the listing database
-A database that stores all listings and activities
-A backup to that database
-15 or so unique pages in total, I think
The finished product will be a working version I can begin showing to users.
If your bid is accepted, you will need to sign an NDA before additional details are shared. Once we begin work, the first thing we will do is develop a project plan with key milestones/benchmarks. Work will be tested continuously throughout the development period by both programmers as well as potential users to ensure we are on track.
Depending on the quality of the work and the success of the business model, you may have the opportunity to build out a full feature "launch version" and, eventually, this could grow into a position with a start-up.
