Please read this project carefully because all the proposals which seem like copied and pasted won't be considered. Okay, I want to create a freelancing website like [url removed, login to view] for my country Macedonia. I've already gone ahead and purchased the domain [url removed, login to view] where I plan to have the website.
I understand that creating this website from scratch would cost too much and frankly, I don't need all the bells and whistles that the big freelancing sites have. So I think that purchasing a script like [url removed, login to view] and then modifying it would make it work for me. The server hosting [url removed, login to view] has all the requirements for the script to be working.
If you go to [url removed, login to view] and click on "Pricing" you will see the that the full installation and configuration of the script costs $60. If you can do it for less I would gladly consider it.
Now, the biggest modification of the script would come with the payments. To be more precise, the employers paying for services and the employees receiving their money.
The employers will only be able to pay via credit cards using the [url removed, login to view] payment processor and the employees will receive their money to their bank account. So that means that all the current payment methods (2CO, google checkout, etc..) that reside in the phpprolance script have to be deleted and this new payment processor ([url removed, login to view]) will have to be installed/integrated.
The [url removed, login to view] payment processor will be linked with my bank account and from there I will manage all the payments as well as the escrow and the refunds. As for the employees receiving their money I will manually release (send) them the funds via my bank account. I'm looking forward to start a longterm relationship with someone who fully understands this project. This project (the installation and modifying of the script) is only the beginning.
