This script is basically a link directory with some pay-per-click features and a custom affiliate program. Users can add a free listing ($0.00) or a bidded listing ($0.01 or greater) to one or more categories but only one listing per category. All listings are sorted first by the highest bid and then by the date submitted with the oldest listing appearing first. Unlike the usual Pay-Per-Click search engine, this script will not use keywords, feeds from other search engines, or have a search feature. Results are only from the internal MySQL database and are generated by a user clicking on a category link.
The script will also have an affiliate program for registered users that credits their account with a certain amount for every click their web site produces to my web site. These credits can then be used to bid on their own listings. Additional features needed are built-in fraud protection, payment systems for PayPal, 2Checkout and a Payment by Mail function, detailed statistics for both administrator and registered users, and a easy to use installation procedure. Everything that can be needs to be automated so that the administrator can concentrate on building his business instead of managing it.
The script needs to be powerful and capable of handling unlimited users, unlimited listings and unlimited clicks per day while still allowing rapid display of category results.
A clean and attractive web design upon install would be a plus. If this is included, I will provide examples of site designs which I like for you to consider.
