We have a website that is about to sell couple of software products. The website is on Yahoo business account – business.yahoo.com.
The home page contains brief product description and links to a more detailed product page for each product. The detailed product page has lots of products details, screenshots, etc.
Both the Home page and detail product pages should have Download Trial Version button.
The button should be linked to user registration page (not to the download), where user should provide the following info:
First Name (mandatory)
Last Name (mandatory)
Country (mandatory selection)
email address (mandatory)
After user completes the registration he/she will receive email with the download link.
The link should be desirably temporary (valid for example for 24 hrs, otherwise it could be posted on Internet and will circumvent user registration). Clicking on it from user email will lead to direct download of the software package (currently it is EXE file but could be made ZIP file if needed).
The downloadable software package will also reside on the same website.
This scheme ensures that user provides valid email – otherwise he/she will not receive the download link. Any other valid schemes that serve the same purpose (obtaining user valid registration and email address) will also be considered. The registration data should be logged in a text file (.CSV), not database, and will allow simple download/viewing of the file.
Developer must have experience with Yahoo based websites (Merchant Starter) and understand how the pages/templates are edited, how to construct registration page, and how to construct/issue email to registered users.
The project was done in PHP but wasn't completed. The exact status is:
- PHP code exists for submitting user info to mySQL database and for sending email to the user that includes temporary download link.
- The email is being sent but it is empty
- The situation with mySQL logging is not clear...
The GOAL for a new provider is to debug the existing code or improve/replace it and make the whole think work.
The totall budget is $45. Must be completed within 3 days of bid acceptance. Must demonstrate working solution.
This is relatively very light task, however only developers with experience with PHP and mySQL should apply.
