Please note these are just fake pages to give a basic idea of the functions and flow.
so there is flexibility here in the layout.

This site is a charity based site done in WordPress where visitors can sign up and donate items, for each item they donate they are given a number of points, (laptop = 500, books = 50 etc) these points are all collected and stored in the members “my account” area. After collecting a certain amount of points over a period of time, the member can redeem these points toward the cost of a vacation at one of the hotels affiliated with www.tradefortravel.com.
This module is basically a rewards/affiliates system or very similar to collecting air miles for use at a later date for cheap/free flights..Same theory.
How it will work:
If it’s the visitors 1st time visiting the site they have 2 options to use the trade calculator.
1. Go to the trade calculator page on the main site,( [url removed, login to view]) follow the easy instructions on how to donate items and when completed they hit submit.
After hitting submit they go to a sign up / sign in page ([url removed, login to view]) if they already have an account (but for some reason didn’t log in first)..they are asked to log in and the information they “submitted” goes into their account automatically ([url removed, login to view])
If they do not have an account yet, they still go to the sign up / log in page and are asked to sign up. After sign up is completed an email confirmation link is sent to their email, after clicking the link in their email..their account is active and the items they submitted previously are added to their account along with the amount of points they have collected for these items ([url removed, login to view])
2. If they already have signed up in the past and have an active account, they can just log into their members area and can use the same page to donate items, ( [url removed, login to view]) they only difference is that they don’t have to sign up or log in after hitting “submit” It just goes directly into their account ([url removed, login to view])
When the items / points are added to the members account ([url removed, login to view]) the “status” has to be set to “pending” by default. this is because the site admin has to receive the items donated (via post) and has to “approve” them. (in case they are no good / broken etc) if the items are as described, the admin can log into their master admin area ([url removed, login to view]) find the members donation order (searchable via order #, name or email) and can simply “approve or deny” the order….if it is approved…it updates in the members account to approved and their points “active” and added to their total. If it is denied the status updates to “denied” in the member account. (maybe a note can be sent explaining why…)
Additional actions when user hits “submit” on [url removed, login to view]
as written above, the user hits submit and is asked to sign up or log in…BUT also a copy of the order needs to be sent to the sites admin email to be “approved” and as the admin has to know what donations come from what members, we need a numeric order number to be created for each new order and also a printable copy of the order needs to pop up or be available to the member so they can print it out and sent it with the item they are donating.
we would like a way to have maybe the “donator of the month” so somewhere on the home page we can have a box which “we would like to thank “member name” for collecting the most points this month” and as you can guess it is automatically populated with the member that has collected the most points.
We are aware that some people will use the system but may never send the items or just forget. So we need an expiration on the items that they have submitted and are sitting in their account…after say 30 days they are auto deleted (saves space on database)
I think that is it…I am sure we may have tweaks but this is the main project.
Dear Sir, We are very keen to work on this project as we have extensive experience in wordpress along with the various aspects of the website. So please see details in the PM. Thanks,
