We have no inventory; third-party vendors list their products
here, we process the transaction and take a cut, then forward the order and the
money to the vendor. (We might have some inventory down the road.)
One or more content areas with man small pictures of jewelry. May include
Clearance, Just Added, Best Sellers, Hot Buys, etc. These should randomly pull
appropriate products from the database at page load.
A Browse By Categories section with 10 or so categories. This will be the main
route by which customers search for jewelry.
An Advanced Search link.
The look should be a bit busy, but not junky. EBay is a pretty good example.
However, I'd like the look-and-feel to be a bit classier and sleeker than eBay.
I'm also quite fond of the scrolling list of products on Barnesandnoble.com.
They display information when you hover over them.
Customers can create an account and keep their credit cards or PayPal info on
file, or they can just do a one-time purchase.
Customers can search by any combination of Category, Price, Vendor, etc. Should
be a fairly straightforward SQL thing.
Display of Search Results
When customers perform an advanced search or just click on a category in Browse
Categories, a table or results is returned, say 4-5 pieces of jewelry per row.
Each one has a picture, price, description, vendor name, etc. Clicking on the
item takes you to a unique page for that item with more detail (e.g. a text
Items can be sorted by price, name, vendor, etc.
Items can be Saved For Later, Added to Cart, etc.
Customers can rate and review products. (This can wait for a later development

passwords and usernames.
Need an auto-mailing list that I can edit each month. Customers will opt in to
the mailing list when they sign up.
Vendors can create an account with their store name, description, and contact
information. This information will be displayed on the vendor's page, accessible
via links from products offered by that vendor
Vendors can upload their products, set a price, create a text description, etc.
all by themselves. In other words, there is no need for the webmaster to help
vendors get their products listed. It must be easy and intuitive.
Vendors can also set a number of flags for each product. There might be flags
for Featured, Clearance, etc., as well as special limited-time flags
(Valentine's Day Special).
When a purchase is made, the website should automatically transfer payment to
paypal account of vendor, or send credit card payment, without a human in the
Calculate fees based on formula that can be altered, and may be different
depending on certain vendor-specified flags. For instance, if the vendor selects
the "Featured Product" tag, my cut may be 15% instead of 10%.
Save purchase details in database
The system should send an email to the vendor with order details. In stage 2,
the system should interface directly with each vendor's ordering system so far

is some industry-standard way this is done, apart from emails.
