Project Description

Create an auction site that only I sell at. Every user that register’s is a buyer only. Auction model may be similar to [url removed, login to view] and layout similar to [url removed, login to view]

This auction style will be a little different than the normal auctions, using reward points as part of the bidders incentive to bid.

An auction is posted with several reserves. The number of reserves is determined by the seller or admin. Each reserve holds a specific outcome, also determined by the seller. A reserve may be reward points in which case if the bidder reaches that reserve and wins the auction at that reserve, the bidder wins the reward points without having to pay anything. A reserve can also be a reserve price met on the auction item for sale in which case the bidder is now committed to buy and pay for the item. There can also be other reserves beyond the reserve selling price which would include more reward points. In this case bidders are now bidding on buying the item, and also wining the reward points. Each auction should also have a graphic meter that indicates how close the bidding is to reaching each specific reserve. However, the bidder only sees how many reserves there is. They will not see what each specific reserve holds. If possible this may be turned on or off by the seller admin, to show what each reserve holds or not to show.

Auctions are also capable of being just a regular auction with no rewards or reserves

Example auction.

Starting price $ [url removed, login to view]

Reserve 1 @ $[url removed, login to view]– A bidder reaches this and wins 50 free reward points

Reserve 2 @ $4.00- A bidder reaches this and wins 75 free reward points

Reserve3@ $5.50- A bidder reaches this and commits to buy @ $[url removed, login to view] because this is the auction item reserve price. This may or may not include reward points

Reserve4@ $7.00- A bidder reaches this and commits to buy @ $[url removed, login to view] and wins 100 reward points

Reserve5@ $10.00- A bidder reaches this and is commits to buy @ $[url removed, login to view] and wins 150 reward points

Reward points will be redeemable for merchandise in an online store atmosphere located on the same site. Merchandise can be bought with cash, reward points, or a combination of both.

Also have separate auctions that bidders bid solely with reward points.

Payment methods should include pay pal and credit cards

This auction site will be heavy on local selling so local pickup needs to be an option. There may or may not be a fee associated with a local pick up item.

Users account functions should be typical of most online auctions but please refer to [url removed, login to view] as a model

Admin features should be robust and lots of controls over all areas. Again refer to [url removed, login to view] as a model.

You should expect many changes and additions to the look, feel, layout and functions as you are writing the script and I am testing. I have had many scripts written years ago and this usually seems to be the case.

Code and web site should be bug free

I will have 100% ownership of site and code

Web site will be hosted on [url removed, login to view]

I do not have a specific budget for this project. I will consider all bids.
