I need an Etsy.com clone, in performance and style, marketplace website.
The website should be as simple and clean as etsy, but must absolutely respect their design copyright etc.
Requirements of the site include:
Registering is free
.20p fee for every product listed
4% sales fee on the total amount excluding postage
All currency in Great British Pounds
Fees to be paid via Paypal.
Fees to be automatically totalled monthly for each shop and then automatically billed with a Paypal payment link.
In other words the website will act as marketplace. The products sold will be tangible items. Vendors will sign up to sell their products, buyers will pay them directly. The website invoices vendors each month for fees due. The checkout system will be Paypal.If buyers add items to shopping cart from multiple vendors, the buyer must checkout for each one (as per etsy today). The website will have multiple level of product categories. Buyers can leave 1-5 star reviews and/or written reviews for vendors.
The system should generate and email invoices at the end of the month for each vendor based on sales/activity. Unpaid accounts will be disabled.
Ability for vendors to purchase feature listings at extra cost
New vendors must be approved before listings appear.
Vendors can pause/holiday their listings temporarily.
Prospective buyers/buyers and vendors can PM each other.
I will provide some files for look and feel reference.
I will be responsible for all static files on the website (e.g. help, terms and conditions etc)
So to review, the website will behave like etsy with the above exceptions/additions.
There will be three main areas of the website:
1) Administrator area - manage vendors, buyers, listings, website, reporting etc
2) Vendor area - sign-up, add listings, manage listings, reporting etc
3) Visitor/Buyer area - home page, categorized product listings, product detail page
If you have built shopping carts in the past this should be a good project for you to re-use your knowledge.
The winning bidder will be chosen on the strength of their submission and their history. That means if you have no Scriptlance reviews, you should put a lot of detail into your submission so that I know you can do the job.
I would love to build a long term relationship with the winning bidder.
I need you to be able to provide a very streamlined shopping cart experience for buyers.
