Project Description

I am a busy seller, I sell through online marketplaces including Ebay, Amazon and my owner Magento website (which uses Magento Community version 1.7 and runs on my own VM).

I am currently having a custom built php solution that I will host online. Its primary purpose is for me to manage my inventory. It has user management, inventory lists etc.

I am interested to have it expanded further.

I want my portal to be able to import unshipped Ebay orders from my Ebay account, unshipped Amazon orders from my Amazon account, and Magento orders from my Magento website.

*** Very important: I want to be able to approve every order individually for shipping, and then have them move to another "approved" screen. The is where my shippers will look at the orders that I have approved there and ship them and print the right shipping postage label.

Just because I get a paid order from Ebay or Amazon or my Magento website does NOT mean I immediately approve to ship, there are other factors I look at manually first. So I definitely need the approval step and screen. The orders can be broken out to a screen per marketplace before and after the approval step.

[url removed, login to view] needs to be integrated. When our shippers look at the approved list for each of the marketplaces I use, they should be able to click on the order and print a shipping label for the right label needed using [url removed, login to view], right there staying in the portal. I use [url removed, login to view] now but I will consider other services if they would be better for this, but I know [url removed, login to view] does offer integration with Ebay, Amazon and Magento.

Currently I approve orders using email and then the shippers use the [url removed, login to view] software for this, but it is painful and slow. Then we have to manually update and inventory spreadsheet. Is is not efficient and now we are sometimes getting behind in orders. So we want to be able to all this in one portal.

What would make me VERY happy is if the developer could also have this system reduce our inventory by the actual items shipped instantly. That would save us a lot of time with manually updating every item we sell.

*** Very Important: Please note that I am NOT looking for a new website or portal, I am asking that you add to the existing PHP portal I am having built. All features need to be built there. I want a one stop shop to do our shipping and inventory activities at.

Please ONLY bid on this project if you can develop a MySQL database, write robust PHP, and be able to extract and manipulate code from Ebay, Amazon AND my Magento store. In addition to this be able to work with [url removed, login to view] or similar shipping label service code to bulld the shipping system functionality I need. I suspect you will need to research on how you could do all this BEFORE you bid.

Please understand I need you to speak in good English and I need prompt responses when ask questions, you need a record of this. Also I do not use skype, I will chat to you using the chat on this website or by email.

For a good job I would like to retain the developer for additional ongoing customizations I will need.

Remember to research the items I ask for before you bid. You should include with your bid a link to another shipping portal you have made or similar. If you do not include this link with your bid I will send you a message asking for it. And that will be be annoying for us both, since I am asking for it here.
