Project Description:
I would like to have a website that is much similar to FolioGrid Pro by Frogthemes, but instead of showing blog posts, I would like for the website to showcase submitted adverts in grid format, with different size boxes (the differences of the size will depends on how much the shop owner pay me to advertise their online shop. There will be an option where shop owner can buy ad space according to size).

This website will act as an interactive online directory where people can browse through the eshops to find the items they want to buy. This is much like a virtual shopping mall.

When they first arrive at the website, they will see different sizes of advertisements (.jpg images), contained in individual boxes. In the boxes also shows a star-rating (voted by visitors). They can browse through the website that features fluid grid based layout with infinite scroll (like FolioGrid Pro by Frogthemes).

The advert boxes should not be arranged in any specific order. It should be random, to provide fair and equal visibility to the visitors. But the grid-like form must be maintained.

When they click on a shop, a lightbox will appear, showing a detailed description about the shop, a rating star system on which previous shopper voted, a set of social networking buttons (Facebook Like button, Tweet this, Buzz this etc2.) , a map showing the shop location using Google Maps(can be disabled by shop owner when they submit their advert) and a nice link to go directly to the website.

When the shopper click the link, they will be redirected to the online shop, but on top of the browser window, there will be a bar, much like NetworkedBlogs have when people click their link to see the advertised blogs. On the bar, they will have the option to rate the online shop & share it on facebook. When they rate the online shop, their rating will be shown in the shop advert box on the website.

I need the website to be highly visible in the search engine. So i need the site to be integrated with SEO and Facebook connect.

I also need to have a payment gateway connected to this website so that shop owner will have the ability to pay for their advert directly from the website. Since this website will be targeting audiences from Malaysia, I would like to integrate iPay88 Online Payment Gateway into the advert purchasing system.

I would like this website to be on wordpress so that I can add in other plugins that i may find useful.
