Project Description

This is an advanced project. Unless you really really know what you are doing please don't bother to bid.

We have software that we would like to sell online. this software has a few different versions, and the price ranges from $500 - $5000.
we recommend the use of existing ecommerce solutions to increase ease-of-setup and security, for both the cart (like magento) and for handling the digital download
we will probably be using google checkout as the merchant, but open to reconsidering
your job will be setting up the store, merchant account, and delivery mechanism of the purchase software.

The process:
When a customer goes to our website, they can download a 30-day evaluation version of the software.

When they complete a purchase, they will be sent a link with the full version software (unlocking the evaluation version is not possible, it needs to be uninstalled). This link to the full version software will need to be unique (for each transaction) and controlled (expires after a certain amount of time and or a certain download attempts)

The buyer will also need to provide a registration key, to receive a licence key back so they can use the software. Their registration key is generated from their computer, using the evaluation software or a small exe we make available (this ensures the software can only be used on the computer it was purchased for). The customer will copy paste this registration key and it will be used to generate their unique licence key. (this system is already built by us you do not need to design this, just integrate it into the checkout process)
the registration key from the customer can be provided during checkout (optional, resulting in the licence key being generated right away and set with the download link) but we will need to also allow for this key to be provided after checkout (so they will be provided with a download link for the software and a link to a page where they can paste their registration key and get a license key later on)

hope i was able to explain this as clearly as possible...

needless to say, this whole system should be:
automated (the user will receive the download link and licence key within seconds of purchasing)
fraud resistant (the user will only receive the info when the transaction is charged successfully)
secure (no one able to generate get to download links without purchasing)

one idea is to use a file hosting system modify it to handle what we need....
we are easy to work with and knowledgeable people ourselves, as long as we are confident in your abilities.
we are looking to have a working system in about 2 weeks
