Reverse Bid Auction - Unique Bid

Unique Bid Description.

Sites with a similar concept include:

[url removed, login to view]

Some of these sites use the lowest unique bid and some use the highest unique bid to determine the winner. Some of the sites use sealed bids and others use visible bids. I would like to have all of these options available in my website/script.

The site/script will need to have a powerful administration area that is completely user friendly. All of the code and files MUST NOT BE ENCRYPTED so I can make changes and modifications in the future if needed.

Below you will find a detailed description of all the functions that the site/script administration area will require.

There should be a menu list going down the left side of the page with the following linkable options:

Go To Site

Manage Categories

Manage Auctions

Featured Auctions

Manage Pages

Manage Users

Manage Email

Manage Contact Us

Manage Feedback

Send Mail To All Users

Send Mail To Auction bidders

Manage Payments

Manage Payment Settings

Manage administration Settings

View Logs

Manage Advertising

Detailed description of what each option will do:

Go To Site:

This link will simply open a new window to the address of the website for viewing changes made from the administration area.

Manage Categories:

This area needs to have the function to add new categories or sub categories to the site.

Manage Auctions:

This area will be used for adding auctions to the site and viewing a list of the current auctions.

The following information will need to be added when adding a new auction:

1.) Select the auction format: Lowest Unique Bid Blind, Highest Unique Bid Blind, Lowest Unique Bid Battle, Highest Unique Bid Battle.

2.) Select the auction category: for selecting the category and sub category

3.) The auction title: for inputting the auction title/name

5.) Minimum/Maximum bid amount: for inputting the minimum or maximum bid allowed to be placed by bidders. For a lowest unique bid auction bidders will not be able to place bids below this amount. For a highest unique bid auction bidders will not be able to place bids above this amount.

10.) The description: For inputting the description of the product up for auction. This area will need a WYSIWYG editor that supports HTML for inputting the description.

11.) The terms: For inputting the auction terms. This area will need a WYSIWYG editor that supports HTML for inputting the terms.

12.) The shipping fee: For inputting the shipping fee. This area will need a WYSIWYG editor that supports HTML for inputting the shipping fee.

13.) Add new auction: This will be a button on the bottom of the page to add the auction to the site. If any of the information above has not been filled out, the auction should not be added to the site and you should be redirected to fill in the missing information.

The following information will need to be available when viewing the current auctions. This information needs to be in a table that is easy to understand and use:

1.) The auction title/name.

2.) The auction format.

3.) The minimum/maximum bid amount.

4.) The bidding fee.

5.) The auction status: active or completed

6.) The details: links to the details and description of the auction.

7.) The bidders: links to the bids placed on the auction.

8.) Edit: For editing any of the auction information.

9.) Delete: For deleting the auction.

Featured Auctions:

This area will be used to select an auction from the list of current auctions and make the auction featured on the home page.

Manage Pages:

This area will be used for adding and editing information on the different pages of the site. This area will need a WYSIWYG editor that supports HTML for inputting the page information.

Manage Users:

This area will be used to manage the registered users of the site. The information about each user should be arranged in a table containing the following:

1.) User: this should contain the users ID #, the users email address, the users IP address, and the status of the user.

2.) Login details: This should include the date the users account was created, the date the user modified their account, and the users last login date.

3.) Name and address: This should include the users name, full address, phone #, and referrer.

4.) Change status: Here you should be able to change the user’s status to either: Active, Inactive, Suspended, or Deleted.

Manage Email:

This area will be used to manage all automatic emails that will be used when people register, forget password, and bid. This area will need a WYSIWYG editor that supports HTML for inputting the automatic email system. Emails will need to be automatic for the following:

1.) Registration: The user will need to click on a link in the email in order to make the account active.

2.) Forgot password: Email telling the user their password.

3.) Successful bid: Tells the user their bid on (auction) at (auction site) was accepted and that their bid was unique.

4.) Successful bid: Tells the user their bid on (auction) at (auction site) was accepted but that their bid was not unique.

5.) Bid status change: Tells the user their bid on (auction) at (auction site) is no longer a unique bid.

6.) Auction half over: Tells the user the (auction) on (auction site) has received half of the bids needed before closing.

7.) Auction over loser: Tells the user that (auction) on (auction site) is complete but they were not the winner. All bids can be reviewed on results page.

8.) Auction over winner: Tells the user that (auction) on (auction site) is complete and they were the winner. All bids can be reviewed on results page.

9.) Contact us: Tells the user that their question was received and will be responded to shortly.

Manage Contact Us:

This area will be used to manage all questions submitted through the contact us link on the site. This area will need a WYSIWYG editor that supports HTML for responding to users questions.

Manage Feedback:

This area will be used simply to view feedback and suggestions from users.

Send Mail To All Users:

This area will be used to send emails to all registered users at once regarding site updates, status, changes, etc. This area will need a WYSIWYG editor that supports HTML for sending out these emails.

Send Mail To Auction Bidders:

This area will be used to send emails to bidders of a specific auction. The current auctions will need to be selectable from here. This area will need a WYSIWYG editor that supports HTML for sending out these emails.

Manage Payments:

This area will be used to manage all payments made to the site. You should be able to view all payments made to the site by all users as well as all payments made to the site from a specific user.

Manage Payment Settings:

This area will be used to manage the payment options available on the site. When the user deposits funds into their account they should be able to select any of these payment processors:

1.) [url removed, login to view]

2.) Direct Bank Deposit

3.) SMS Premium Service

These payment processors need to be incorporated into the site so when they select the payment processor it automatically redirects them to the site to complete their deposit. I also need to be able to add fees for the user to make the deposit. These fees will be the same fee that the payment processor will be charging the site to accept the payment. Example: PayPal charges 2.9% + .29 per transaction. So if the user decides to make their deposit via PayPal, a 2.9% +.29 fee will be added to complete the transaction. I will also need a way to add new payment processors in the future. The fee charging system needs a simple activate/deactivate control.

Manage Administration Settings:

This area should be an overview of all the other options in the administration area.

View Logs:

This area will be used to track all visitors on the site. This should be in the form of a table and should show the location, country, IP address, page name, and page visited.

Manage Advertising:

This area will be used to add and remove advertisers on the site. There should be advertising at the top of the page in the form of a banner. There should also be advertising down the right side of the site pages. These advertisements will need to be rotated in time intervals. I am not really sure what the standards are for this, so I will be open to suggestions here.

The following is all information/pages regarding the user end of the site/script.

1.) Home page

-The home page should be able to feature 4-6 auction listings / lots.

2.) Auction listings / Lots

- Each page should hold approximately 10 auction listings / lots.
