You can have a team or be an individual it doesn't matter. The main important thing for me is to keep the price down, have a cost-effective project and see the results.
Here is the scope of the project which is divided into 2 sections :
1 - Data Entry Website
2 - Android App - We will need AFTERWARDS an iOS version too.
So, part 1 of this project will be to create a simple but slick data entry website. Basically suppliers will need to login (username/password) and enter their product information and company profile including pictures (as blob). Extremely simple. I will provide you with the MySQL database structure. You only need to create the forms for suppliers to enter their data and design the website and user page. The emphasis here is on the design and usability of the website. I want it super nice but super simple. No need for fancy backgrounds, flowers etc... keep it nice, slick and simple. Send me samples of designs and i'll choose.
=> ETA for this will be 2-4 weeks - No rush, but NEEDS to be done properly.
Once the above is completed, we will need an App for it. The app will be linked to the data entered by suppliers. So basically, it will be a map app, where suppliers will display on the map. user will be able to click on a supplier and the products of the supplier will be displayed - customer can then order right from the app. (the order will be made via Apple Pay or Paypal).
=> ETA for this section of the project is 30-60 days but will most likely take less.
FULL Details will be provided to chosen freelancer.
We already have our iOS Dev. Program so all will be under our licensing and management (certificates etc etc etc) - We will also fully own the source code (as we may make some changes to the code / app in future releases). Your company will also be mentioned as part of the development team.
Just so we're all clear from the beginning. NO PREPAYMENT will be made. We will put the money into freelancer in instalments. So when sending your quotes, it's very very important to be sure that you agree with all the terms, that you are CONFIDENT that you will be able to START AND COMPLETE the project - No time wasters PLEASE.
We have already given you enough ETA for the completion of this work and if you are not sure you understand or can complete, please do not place a bid. I will most likely not go with the cheapest, but will go with the MOST serious company. UK based are preferred but anyone can bid as far as the skills are there :-)
So just to re-clarify :
Your quote should mention : Total Price and Total ETA - Please ADD in the description the price for the website + ETA AND the price for app and the ETA). Please note, once you start, you need to finish, if you don't think you'll be able to finish, please don't waste our time and don't bid.
-------- Payment Terms ---------
Payment Terms will be sent in 5 parts
- First Payment : Once HALF of the website is done
- Second Payment : Once website is completed
==> Website files will then need to be released to us for upload on our server
- Third Payment : Once design and main features of the App are completed (ie : navigation through the pages etc...)
- Fourth Payment : Once payment features of the App are completed
- Fifth Payment : Once submission to the App store is validated.
------- Notes --------
For the website, everything should be done on your server. You release the files to us once you receive payment from us.
For the App, you don't have to send us the app while in development, just send us screenshots or videos of it working properly on your device.
