Project Description

I am looking for a programmer to build a unique Penny Auction site script with some features that are competitive and unique. First , I would need all rights to the code and in exchange we will offer ….in addition to the freelancer agreed pricing …a generous royalty that we can discuss once the site is launched. This part is due to the proprietary nature of the business model and cannot be posted or discussed here until the site is launched and you sign an intellectual assets agreement with us.

You must have prior experience with penny auction script sites and have examples of sites you have completed in the past. You must be able to program for multiple platforms. The bid is for a functional site….I don’t want a templated site with bid timers that don’t function.

It must function similarly and competitively in features to a Quibids or phppennyauction script. I need the site to have 2 back end admins….one for the auction site admin/owner and one for a charity to manage an affiliate relationship status with the site.

It must have the ability that when any user of the site sets up their bid profile they can choose from a database of charities. Once the charity is selected the charities logo will appear in place of a personal avatar like you might see on a site like Quibid. After their profile is set up, in place of, a user selected avatar icon, the charities logo will display on their profile. This will let the user know that whatever bids they use in bidding… will be supporting that particular charity they selected when setting up their profile. The auction site should be developed for multiple platforms ie Mac, Windows, Iphone, and Android with all the functionality of the main site and also across all the major browsers.

In the Charity admin, each charity can manage their member status, manage corporate logo’s, mission statements and any other social links and media that they see fit to add to the charities profile. They should be able to go into their profile and see status of bids placed, and totals of donations that they are going to receive once the bids close. They should have all the major social networking icon links for Facebook, Google +, Youtube and Twitter integrated on their profile page.

The main Admin will allow the owner to manage margins on auctions, set the percentage of profit for donation to each charity. Add, delete and set up accounts. Suspend accounts. And launch auctions via cron. It should have extensive logging capabilities capturing time and ip address of all winning auctions and flagging and blacklisting ip addresses for fraud. The admin should also have the ability to import in flat file, xml or csv files to write potential inventory into the product database.

My ideal product could be comprised of a lean os commerce type platform ( CREloaded is preferred…but it can’t be bloated with crap coding) seamlessly intergrated with a phppennyauction type script with wordpress type blog structure for the charity profiles. It should be designed with a simple but modern look that makes the branding seamless. It will be installed on a dedicated server and must be able to handle heavy loads of traffic. I would like to see a graphical mock up and examples of your previous work with similar requirements needed for the project before I close on any bid. If you can’t show your work……doesn’t matter how low your price is.

The site should have features of theses common scripts
