you will setup the server and database with a focus on security in mind. The database, the authentication methods and the transfer of data and what you as the professional can think of should be secured.
I am thinking Amazon Services but would be open to other big name services.
Basically we have 2 groups of user
enduser / consumer
employees with different levels
superuser/admin of course
The idea is that every user has one and only one bid per auction. Nobody can see the other bids. The one with the lowest bid, which is entered only once will win.
In order to bid a user must have a paid subscription. There will be different subscription plans, including free or paid trials.
You will map the database to accomplish this.
The employees can add/edit products for auction, add/edit auction and manage/view users.
Obviously there will be a very detailed complexity to this for every page needed and I can provide this
!!!IMPORTANT: start your bid with the word "auction". all other applications will be ignored!!!
Please only provide a realistic bid no low for attention and then upbidding- I hate that!
