I'm looking to connect my company's sole web developer with a team or an expert developer with specific experience in the development or customization of a daily deals aggregation system like yipit, agriya, etc.
we aim to create an aggregation site very similar to groupon or livingsocial. The system needs to support automation of deals aggregation in as many locations as possible worldwide. It also should be able to pull deals from both current and future deal sites.
1. Ability to automatically aggregate all available daily deals for each location.
1.1. Site must utilise RSS/XML feeds provided by group buying sites.
1.2. If RSS feeds are not available, must have the ability to scrape content direct from the target domain.
1.3. Scraped data - Deal provider, deal image, recommended retail price (merchants price), discount price, discount percent, saving %age, Time left to buy (show expired if closed), Category.
2. Page layout ( TBA )
2.1. Filters should be in the form of drop down lists
2.2. Filters should include: City, Provider (eg. groupon, goldendeals etc.), Category (may have to be automatically detected based on scrapped keywords but should be an ability to change category in necessary from backend)
2.3. Ability to sort by Price, %discount, Time left
2.3. Ability for admin to easily add custom deals.
2.4. Social Media sharing buttons for each deal.
3. Allow users to click a daily deal listing link that redirects them to deal providers’ website page to purchase deals
3.1. Automatically utilize each daily deal provider’s affiliate program for all deals offered
4. subscribe to newsletter via e-mail.
4.1. Automated email system will send daily deals in accordance with user location and preferences.
