Project Description

I am looking for someone to write me a piece of software that will work with the [url removed, login to view] website

[url removed, login to view] is an online ticket brokering website similar to stubhub and ticketmaster but only 1 broker is able to post
their tickets and whatever broker has the best price their ticket price is the one that shows up.

For example is I had a pair of tickets to see an event say Alicia Keys on July 12 in Philadelphia at the wellsfargo center and
my tickets for section 201 were priced at $200 a piece and another broker came in with tickets for the same section and
priced his tickets at $190 his tickets would show and not mine.

TicketNetwork gives the ticket brokers who are selling tickets on their website a point of sale desktop application that they
can use for reporting, adding tickets, managesell tickets etc all without having to login to the ticketnetwork website.

All of the business is conducted thru this point of sale desktop application that I use to interface with the ticketnetwork website.

So I wanted a program written that can automatically reduce my ticket price to $189 or a $1 lower than the next price until
I reach a min. level say I don't want to go less than $150 so the software would automatically keep lowering my ticket price
by $1 if someone keeps lowering their ticket price. Then when the ticket price reaches my minimum the software program will
send me a notice or an alert to manually approve any additional price reductions.

Now if the software lowers the price and no other person or broker puts in a lower price then the price will stay until or unless
someone else puts in a ticket for a lower amount per the example above.

Now this person will need to be strong with hook and eject dll because this is not a web based application this is a
desktop based application. So extensive knowledge of dynamic link library and the ability to edit and modify a proprietary
desktop application is preferred.

If you have questions please ask but basically i need a software program to automate what I have to do manually and that is
log in every few hours or so and see if my ticket prices are still the ones showing up or if someone lowered their ticket
prices below my ticket prices like in the example above if I priced the tickets for an event and I priced the tickets for section
201 at $200 and another broker priced their ticket for section 201 at $199 their tickets would show and my tickets would not
so I would have to manually change the price to $198 so that my tickets would now show and their tickets would not.

Hopefully you understand what I need, if not let me know and if all goes well, I definitely have more programming needs in
the very near future.

I did create a short video demonstrating what I have to do manually every day that I would like to have this program do for me automatically,
please pm me for the link to view the demonstration of what I manually have to do every day that I would love to have automated.

I would prefer someone with a background working with ticket brokerage sites but is not necessary if you understand
the requirements.

***If you want to be considered you must pm me with "pineapple" in the subject line so that I know that you can follow directions anyone who would does not pm me with the word pineapple in the subject line will not be considered.

***Please also include in your pm some sample desktop applications that you have either modified or created.

Thanks,
