First of all, I want a Wordpress THEME, not a template.
Hi, I need an auction theme created and designed for Wordpress. The theme needs to be specific for music, so that means the auctions will be a single song music player, instead of the standard picture layout you would see on Ebay. I need it to look professional, since this is for a business I'm hoping will grow.
In the short term, this is for an auction site like Ebay, but just selling music instead of furniture or whatever. The music is mainly hip hop and all it's sub genres, so it wouldn't hurt if it had a sort of hip hop feel to it in the design and colors.
What I require:
Simple and small music player for each auction, along with a description. (Description should just be a text box, no drop down menus or anything, just plain text.) Of course there should also be space for the 'auction deadline' 'buy now' 'bid' 'make offer' etc. buttons.
Login/Members area. - Members should only be the ones able to bid and sell on the site, so that means I will need to have a form that will make people able to signup an account with a username.
Advanced auction features (Seller) - Reserve price, Buy now price, Starting price, Auction deadline. The reserve price needs to be shown for the bidders. If a seller puts a buy now option, there will still be bidding available.
Advanced auction features (Buyer) - Make offer (Buy now offers), Buy now, Bid.
If someone puts a bid 30 seconds before the deadline or closer to the dealine, the deadline will expand to 1 minute. This is to prevent people from ''sniping'' which in auction is when for example the highest bidder is 10 dollars, and then you bid 10.1 dollars on it just before the deadline, and is the highest bidder.
There should be a rating system, so that when someone sells their music, the buyer gives the seller a rating, which will be published on the seller's profile.
There is no system to the bidding values. By that I mean the buyer can buy at ANY price he wants, so if it's 10 dollars, you are free to bid 10.1 dollars. I don't want a system that says the next bid must be minimum 11 dollars or something.
I want the site built, so the main site is in the middle. This means there must be space for a banner and a sideways menu in the top. (Banner should be over the menu) There should also be space for graphic designs in the both left and right side of the main content. And last but not least, in the bottom there should be space for a collection of links, like contact, copyright, etc.
To prevent people from cheating, I want the sellers to upload their beat to the site, so people can listen and bid if they want to. This is to prevent sellers from refusing to give the music to the buyer, as the seller will upload his beat to the site, and the winner will just be able to download it right away.
That brought me a new idea. The seller will upload his music with a voice over, AND upload a copy of good quality. The voice protected version will be showed to the public, while the winner of the auction will be able to download the good quality version.
So perhaps you need some kind of cloud to store files too?
The paying method will be Paypal.
Don't know if this matters, but I also need to get a commission of 10% for each sale on this site, so the seller will get 90% of his sale.
Remember to make this theme editable afterwards, if I want to make a few tweaks or updates to the site.
If the description of my vision is a little unclear, don't let it bother you. I wish the freelancers that join this contest to show creativity and design when they come up with their own ideas for my site, because it's virtually impossible to explain in complete detail how I want the site to be.
Make this template working for Wordpress.org since Wordpress.com doesn't support customized themes.
So show your full creativity, and good luck in the contest!
