This application was built by another coder in its using python 2.5 ~ 2.7 and it has stopped working effectively .whoever can fix this i would like them to be able to fix it again if it stops working....also when ebay makes changes to the site i would like the same coder to work on it again. hopefully a lasting relationship for as long as ebay is around :)
Its a very simple program.
it searches though all of eBays categories, finds all auctions for .01, does not have any bids, and free shipping, to include all countries.
The program then bids .01 for me using my eBay account.
I just need somebody to go through the code and find out what’s wrong with it and why its not working.
All of the functionality of the program must still stay the same. right now its just not bidding on anything.
here is a quick rundown of what the program did, and still needs to do.
1. Search all listing categories in all countries for this criteria:
A. Free shipping to the US
B. Starting bid is .01 (or equivalent currency)
C. No current bids. ( I must be the first bidder)
2. Logs in to search the adult category.
3. Bids on all items that meet the criteria
4. Bids on the items in a random time interval from 30 seconds to one minute from the last bid.
Not sure on how it stored the item id number. It had been keeping the url. However code has been reworked since then.
Please have prior work experience on this website.
you will need your own ebay account as a test account to make sure the program works. This is probably a 30 min job...... i just dont know where it is broke.
Files will be attached later today. input username and password as example. would need actual password and username of your test account.
Would like to be a US account to test the adult section as the previous coder was UK and apparently they don't have a adult category in the UK.
Current program only seems to be bidding on about 150-300 items before quitting. I would like to be able to not bid on certain keywords.
I am open to other ideas for programs, and not python.
Pay attention to the budget. I prefer not to go over. lowest bid with work experiences will get the job. Seeing how this is a pretty simple program I dont anticipate it being anywhere near the 250........
