Project Description

Website overview:

An ecommerce website which will function as a sales and group buying site.

The site will be importing last call and clearance sales from various websites with the ability to change the price and the description of the products.

The sales will be grouped into categories which will change according to the seller or a manual display of the products.

The operators on the site will change the description and pricing into a different language (Arabic) so the site will be multi language as-well as the layout which will change to RTL when switching to Arabic.

The backend function of the website purchase will be as following:

My Site:

import products listed on sales site

operator will changethe listed pricing and will add a discription in other language and group them into a sales event (category)

The Customer

will see the product on my site

place the product into his cart

Press chuckout to pay for the product

My Site

recheck that the product is still available on the original sales site

purchase the product from the original sales site

the product will be sent to a predetermined address for proccessing


Eventually I want sellers to start placing there sales by themselves on my site without the need to import sale products from other websites but till that happens I’d want to be self-dependent and import the products from other sites.

I’m not interested in having a cooperation with the sites I’m buying from (or more accurately most of them aren’t interested in cooperation) so I’ll be doing the purchase and then the resell.

In order to motivate visitors to make purchases, the products in the site will be changed on a daily basis, and that’s why I eventually got to the conclusion that I’ll need it to be automated somehow.

From the research I made it would be rather easy to create such function if the online store have an api (sorry I’m not a technical guy), such as amazon & Ebay and harder to import from other sites.

The only problem is that I can’t guarantee if the products sold from these sites are original or replicas which would be a major so I prefer to get the listed products from other sites.

The list of sites I’m interested to import from are the following:

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

• [url removed, login to view]

to make it easiest for you to understand, I’m interested in creating something close to this site:

[url removed, login to view]

but instead of referring to the original site, I want to do the purchase and processing myself (in Arabic), since most of my targeted purchasers don’t speak English and will have trouble registering and going through the purchase process in English.

Main issue is that I will have constant translation teams and costumer service for my site which will cost me more than the referral fees that are paid from these sites, and reselling is the only thing that I can think of which makes sense, though most of those sites aren’t interested in such cooperation at this moment which is why I want to do it independently.
