I'm looking for a programmer who can help me make a web based research tool. The tool will be similar to a shopping comparison site, but have different filters and compare specific prices on specific sites.
Similar to [url removed, login to view], how one search is done and all the different hotel sites prices are compared, this tool will let the user search the price of a certain product, and automatically get the cheapest price for that product from: Amazon, Ebay, Overstock, Craigslist and a few more.
The results will show the cheapest price, the most expensive price, and the median price.
In addition to simply being a price comparison tool, I would like to have other search filters for comparing prices that would allow the user to search by keyword, price variance, and more. The goal being to have a tool that not only compares prices live when a keyword is typed in, but a tool that can show the user price differences in products they are not yet searching for....
In other words, if I select to search by price discrepency in a certain category, ...say "patio furniture" or whatever, and a discrepency of price of say "$50" the tool would find products in the various marketplaces and show the user which products have a price discrepency with a minimum difference indicated by the user ($50) in the patio furniture category.
The tool should be web based, and require a login and password to access. Usernames and passwords should be generated by the site after access to the research tool has been purchased.
To summarize, the tool basically has two research functions:
1.) Specific: Type in a product description, and have the price results given by marketplace, with lowest, highest, and median prices highlighted.
2.) General: Select a category, and filter by price discrepency, and the tool looks for exact match products within the chosen category on all the sites chosen to crawl, and returns only the products with a price discrepency greater than or equal to the minimum price difference entered by the user.
The basic version 1.0 of the tool should work with the main online marketplaces:
Ebay (using advanced search, completed listings, average sale)
Craigslist (by state/city)
Version 2.0 would include more marketplaces like [url removed, login to view], and others....
I'm looking for a developer who can build this on my server, and provide support for updates and upgrades in the future. I would like a price quote for doing version 1.0 of the tool, password protected, on my server...Tested...And ready to provide access to users.
If you think the tool would be better built as a desktop bot, such as [url removed, login to view] (similar tool with different focus) Im open to your reasoning on that.
My thought on making it web based is that Mac users will be able to access it, and changes should be easier to roll out.
Please also include a turnaround time for version 1.0 to be completed. Those who do not submit an ESTIMATED turnaround time will not be considered.
Also looking for an English speaking developer. Doesn't have to be your first language, but for communication purposes, it's the only language I speak.
Nice looking user interface is also very important to me. The tool should be very user friendly and intuitive.
Thanks in advance for your bid!

I would like my own version of this tool, but BETTER with a cleaner UI and a few more features. But for all basic purposes, I want a tool that does what this tool does. Please watch his video and provide a quote to build a better version with details on how you'd make it better. Thanks!
