I am creating a cashback website, where members earn cashback for shopping at my partners websites. It will be aimed at the India consumer market, and needs to be user friendly. The site will be very similar to cashkaro.com.
Basically, the users will go via my site before they start shopping on the Internet, and click on the specially formatted link to the shop they want to purchase from. They then make their purchase like normal, and a week or so later, they will get a set amount of cashback for the goods they purchased, as long as they used my link. For example, a user would go to my site, click on the special link to Amazon and shop there like normal. A few weeks later, they would check their account on my site, and would see 2% of whatever they spent at Amazon, in their account ready to spend.
I would be able to give users cashback, because I get commission for sending sales through the Trade Doubler affiliate program. The link to the shops would be specially formatted so that it includes a unique number that identifies the user that clicked on the link. When they have made the sale, Trade Doubler will tell me how much the sale was for, and which unique number made that sale. I can then credit that user with the appropriate amount of cashback.
What I need you to do is create a functioning site in PHP and MySQL with a member area, admin area and publicly view-able area. I will now explain the features/pages I need in the deliverable section:
- Register / Sign Up
- Transaction History
- Account Balance / Welcome Screen
- Request Payment Page
- Edit / View Profile
Both members and non members will be able to browse the information about the shops that offer cashback, however if the member is logged in, then the link will be formatted so that it has their special unique id in it, so that I can track their cashback.
- Login (SECURE)
- Stats / Welcome Screen
- Browse / Search Users
- Edit / View User Account
- List / Add / Remove / Edit Shop Categories
- List / Add / Remove / Edit Shops (See below)
- Email all users / selected users
- Manually add cashback page
- Automatically add cashback page
- View pending requests for cash
I need to be able to add information about each shop into the database using the admin area. I will put each shop into one or more categories that users can browse for the shop in (ie. entertainment, food etc). Each shop has its own cashback rate (ie. 2%) which members get. I will also put some text information about each shop, and its logo.
Please take a look at [login to view URL] to get a better idea of what I want, because I am hoping it will be very similar to this. It would be ideal if the chosen coder were on MSN messenger a lot, as I like to support and keep in contact with all my coders. Any examples of past work are much appreciated.
