What We Are After:
We are looking for a developer to help build a website platform that enables users to search via various attributes to return a list of products that are linked to these attributes.
After selecting attributes a product code will be returned in which only products that hold these codes will appear. Working similar to a product refinement process.
All products which will be uploaded via a csv (or recommended method) must be found on Amazon and linked autonomously.
Once the user selects the product they wish to purchase a button will be available to purchase via an affiliate scheme such as Amazon Associates.
Prices and delivery status must be gained via an API linked to Amazon Associates ensuring it is regularly updated.
The site will have over 3 million products on it and need to scrap prices for the 3 million products in the background.
1 - Products need to be able to be uploaded via a CSV or similar facilitation, which can be customisable for additional columns where required.
The CSV will include:
Hyperlink to images, which need to be uploaded
Product Specification (various columns)
Fits - This will be a coded link for example 12abc, which may fit a variety of products. In some cases a product may fit more than one model.
Category - E.g. if they are looking for a certain product e.g. shoes
Link to where to purchase
2 - A Filtration System that enables us to use a drop down to select a number of options to then only present parts suitable for that model. For example after selecting five options it only shows products that have the code 12abc in their “fits” category.
Working on a similar level to this but adaptable not just for car parts:

It also needs to be real-time, with over 3 million products on it needs to be fast at looking up queries.
3 - When products are uploaded using new categories, categories are automatically uploaded to the application to provide more filtration options for example once or before filling in the filtration system you can select a category for example shoes, or dresses.
4 – All products must be linked via API to Amazon products, via suggested method. We will solely be uploading products with part numbers and UAN details so if they can be linked via this method great. Alternatively we are open to suggestions.
5 - An admin backend to add data, remove data, add content and custom pages
Developer Needs To Understand:
- Advanced MySql Knowledge
- CSV - Or Recommended method
- Web Scraping and Manipulation
- Coding Language - We leave this to your discretion but want to know which language you recommend
- Amazon Associates/ Affiliate platforms
- API Integration
