Project Description

--ONLY REPLY IF YOU HAVE DEMONSTRATED EXAMPLES OF CLASSIPRESS THEME MODIFICATIONS THAT YOU CAN SHOW US THE URL'S OF - ANY BIDDER FAILING TO HAVE EXAMPLES OF PRIOR CLASSIPRESS WORK WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED --

Our site is created in WordPress and in development has a separate WordPress installation that runs a classifieds directory. The classifieds directory is built using the Classipress WordPress theme.

We require 3 modifications to Classipress to allow for specific requirements that we have.

1. Recurring payments

We are using the in-built option of Paypal for payment processing and would like to modify this to allow recurring billing so our customers can create an ad, have it run indefinitely without the need to come back and renew the ad every month. Customers would be billed the same amount each month ($35 per month) until they cancel their ad. Paypal offers a recurring billing service so we wish to utilise this ([url removed, login to view])

When a user creates an ad on our system, they are brought to a page to create their ad.

At this point we want to offer the user the option of recurring billing and have it all flow through to Paypal

2. Areas that advertisers service

Built into ClassiPress is the ability for users to refine the search they are performing to only showing listings within a certain radius of a selected town/suburb, postcode or state.

What we wish to do is allow a business placing a classified ad to select whether they service all of Australia, a state, region or suburb. As an alternative to selecting a region we would consider the ability for a business to select whether they service a particular distance around a postcode i.e 10, 50, 100 or 200 kms from a business. There will be a default distance selected of a 200km radius from the business.

These distances selected by a business will then be used on the front end of the site when a user keys in a particular search and refines their result.

3. Geo targeting the display of classified ads on a separate WordPress installation.

We have another section of the site that is built using another WordPress installation.

Our requirement is to display relevant classified ads from the classipress wordpress site on a content page of our other site based on a user’s IP address. For example when a user is in Melbourne, the ads that display would only service that users location. The ads that service that users location would be based on what we set up in part 2 of this brief. IP detection is required to meet this requirement.

We will supply a map between what categories of classified ads would need to appear on what content pages.
