tasks and errands marketplace - Wordpress

I want to build a tasks and errands marketplace which helps people get things done. Laundry, cooking, yoga, and everything in between. A place locals can connect with other local providers and get amazing services right at their door.

I am interested in building this site using wordpress as the base and custom posts with listings linking to googlemaps and integrating a member to member chat and rating system to make the site work as i need. I am interested in using plugins that are already available within wordpress but making them all work together to provide the service and streamline the functionality. Payments for these tasks and errands will be made in advance via paypal then we will pay the provider on a job done once completed by the requester of the job.

Please see screenshots of a similar site I found online. This shows exactly what i want and where i am heading with this project.

I don't have a big budget for this project which is why i am thinking it could mostly be done with preexisting wordpress plugins and designed simply to make all the elements come together. In its simplest form the functionality is as follows"

There are two levels to the site users & providers

A user post small errand projects, they select the category, location and the amount they are prepared to pay and write a brief description.

There are different categories where errands can be posted.

Providers who have chosen that category as particular skill in their profile receive notification that a new job has been posted which suit their skills.

providers can then review the project and make offers to do the project by private messaging and having a conversation with the user.

Once the user accepts an offer made by a provider the user immediately pays via paypal.

We hold the money in escrow until the user confirms/completes the project (-minus our commission amount)

Once completed, the provider then gets the money into his 'wallet' on the site and can request to withdraw the money to his paypal after the amount reaches $50 or more.

Once the request is transacted the provider is then sent the money via paypal

Both user and provider can rate each other for that project.

Both user and providers have profiles with basic information about themselves and a photo and their ratings.

nb. Providers have to apply to be providers, they are interviewed must agree to be police checked and have to have two character references. They must be approved by us before they can become providers on the site.

I have been looking at preexisting wordpress directory and market place templates like [url removed, login to view] and on [url removed, login to view] to see if there is something there with similar functionality that could simply be tweaked to make it work how i want there are a few that could be similar but i am open to suggestions. The important thing is costing and keeping costs as low as possible but still being able to provide a stable environment for users.

i like the idea, and this can be a simple and low cost website, but you're using e-commerce, that might add an extra cost, also you can find preexisting templates other than the ones in [url removed, login to view], more suitable, More
