## Deliverables


I want to convert a VB EXE program to a web application using PHP and MySQL.
The program is called FAME (Feedback Ad Maker for Ebay)

The Sales page decribing what FAME does is at:
<[url removed, login to view]>

You can get a Windows EXE demo version at:
<[url removed, login to view]>

Instructions describing how the programs operates is at:
<[url removed, login to view]>

I have also created a narrated SWF video to explain it better at:
<[url removed, login to view]>

The EXE version uses a local Access database, and a MYSQL table on my server
to control registration.

The new version will be a 100% web app using PHP and MySQL.

It will do VERY little HTML scraping. Instead it will use the Ebay API.

Here are some important links:

The Ebay Developer program:
[[url removed, login to view]][1]

--PHP Page.
<[url removed, login to view]>
We'll be using the following(look at the above page)
"eBay Accelerator Toolkit for PHP" is the most established SDK. It supports the complete set of API calls and works under PHP 4.

**NOTE!!! eBay charges $[url removed, login to view] per 1000 API calls, so the design MUST use the MINIMUM # of API calls!

This is going to be a WICKED COOL PROJECT to work on! :-)

The EXE program installs as a demo. It runs for 14 days and then dies. While it runs, it scrambles up the vowels of the feedback
We need to work out a demo mode for the PHP version that does the same.

So here is what you will do:

* I will give you access to my web server.
* I already am signed up for the eBay API program, and have the Authorization codes. I will supply those to you.
* You will install the "eBay Accelerator Toolkit for PHP"
* You will write a script that will allow us to pass an eBay USERID and have it bring back all of the feedback they received for SELLING ITEMS ONLY!
NOTE!! We only bring back feedback for ITEMS SOLD, NOT BOUGHT! This info will include all the info about the sold item.

* Next, you'll write the logic and create the MySQL tables to store the data

When you're done, the web app should be a working copy like the current EXE.

You will also need to handle the security aspects and back end logic.

You will deliver a complete ready to run application and agree to fix any discovered problems with it for 2 months after sign off.

If you look at my feedback you'll see a lot of repeat jobs I have handed out. When I find someone who does a good job and delivers the goods, and who can be relied upon, I like to give more and more work.

I hope you are that person.

Here is something you should know about me:

*** I have LITTLE PATIENCE for wasting my time. If you cannot debug and test your code, I WILL NOT DO IT FOR YOU!
*** If you do not know your stuff and cannot deliver then DO NOT BID THIS JOB!
*** I will give you the help and assistance you need, but WILL NOT DO YOUR WORK. That is why I am paying you.
*** I treat my coders with respect and dignity. Take care of me and do a good job, and we'll do more together.

Here is something about you:

*** You have a portfolio showing jobs you have done. DON'T BID WITHOUT IT!
*** You write professional code and deliver what you promise within the time frame promised.
*** You are looking to PROVE YOURSELF to a buyer who has a lot of work to hire out, and needs someone who is smart,can be trusted, and can deliver the goods.
*** You get embarrassed when a buyer discovers bugs in your code, or links don't work.
*** You triple check your work to make sure the buyer doesn't get mad by releasing bugging code.
*** You stand by your work and are proud of what you do.
*** You quickly learn what you need to know and are a problem solver!
*** You are enjoyable to work with, and love what you do.

Most importantly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This job is to be done by a single individual, NOT A TEAM!!!

If you are a development team that farms out work, DO NOT BID!!!!!!!!!!!
