THIS IS AN URGENT JOB REQUIREMENT SO PLEASE DO NOT BID ON THIS PROJECT UNLESS YOU HAVE OSCOMMERCE EXPERIENCE. PLEASE ONLY BID IF YOU CAN COMPLETE BY END OF DAY 5 OF BEING SELECTED - DO NOT WASTE MY TIME.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES DO I WANT BIDS FROM 'COMPANIES' OR GROUPS. I AM LOOKING FOR A PROGRAMMER THAT WORKS BY HIMSELF/HERSELF.
Now that only serious programmers are reading this job after getting past the above notices, I can explain what the job is about.
The Job: To have a white-label type of SMS reseller. How so? Well at present there are numerous sms bulk sellers such as Red SMS, Clickatel and SMS2email etc and they all work by a customer buying bulk sms and then using them via logging in to the sellers site and using a 'send sms tool' or by using API docs to link the backend of the customers own sites to process sending SMS via the SMS bulk sellers.
What I want is to purchase hundreds of thousands of these SMS credits (1credit = 1 SMS) and then add these as products to the oscommerce store (i.e. 10 SMS pack, 500 SMS pack, 2000 SMS pack etc). When a customer adds the SMS to their cart and checks out the balance of those SMS are added to their 'account'.
For example sake, I may have bought 500,000 SMS from Clickatel as a starter. A customer registers on my site and purchases 1999 SMS at $13.95. Unknown to the customer that leaves me with 498,001 SMS but the customer has 1999 SMS to play with and when the customer logs in to the white label SMS oscommerce store they can send bulk SMS from there or you use the API and send it from their own website.
How will the API work? Well there should be no mention of the SMS bulk company (clickatel or alike), the only mention should should be my oscommerce SMS site.
I think I have given you the main idea... please post a message letting me know what your estimated time of start and completion are. Thye work will take place on a fresh/vanilla osc 2.3/2.31 store and this can be hosted on my server or yours. Once the work is checked and everything is to my required specifications then I will release the escrow and you will zip me the files so I can text-diff them on to a live store as well as overwrite them on to a fresh/vanilla store. If you prefer not to have an escrow and want PayPal payment after the job is completed I can do that too. I have all the required API documents and I can even add the SMS send functions on to a fresh/vanilla osc store if you want so the only real part of the Job is:
- to make the 'product SMS' to appear in a customers account balance AFTER payment has been confirmed
- to create a front end catalog/[url removed, login to view] file from where the customer sends their SMS (send group, send to just one person)
- to create a front end page where customers can add a list of 'contacts' and also create 'groups'
- send SMS page has to allow sending of SMS in various languages/Alpha Numerics (Greek, Arabic, Russian etc)
- customer must have option to save/delete any sent SMS
- send SMS date and time stamps must be accurate and be visible for customer sent messages page
There are other projects lined up after this including a big Auction website which will need a permanent trouble-shooter in case issues arise but access to those types of jobs can only be given with huge rewards if we can build up a relationship based on honesty and propmt delivery from a good sincere programmer.
Oscommerce related jobs will regularly be available so please keep this in mind when bidding. If you need to ask any questions before bidding then please ask :)
Under NO circumstances are bids to exceed $100. If the selected programmer can do the job to my specifications before the end of day 3 of being selected then a $25 bonus will be paid AND an immediate job offer on another project. Any programmer bidding more than $125 will be banned from all of my future projects.
