We require a reverse auction site. If you have any questions, please get in touch. Many thanks.
We have been asked by a few bidders to provide more information.
Our requirement, as the project name suggests, is for a REVERSE auction application. By this we mean sellers will compete with each other to sell to a buyer. This is to be and end-to-end application. In general terms therefore the project has the following components:
1- A database (we prefer something like mySQL to SQLServer);
2- An admin function (this would include buyer/seller login and reporting functionality. However, we look to you to suggest the best implementation of this functionality);
3- Front-end design (a business-like, content-rich design. No Flash). This will naturally include T's&C's, Contact Us, About Us, etc;
4- A content management system or function;
5- Payment function/gateway. This must include credit card payment AND direct bank payment;
6- An automated confirmation email functionality;
7- A "save bids" functionality for the buyer (similarish to "My eBay" area;
8- The site will include documents in pdf format that users can download.
This is a long-term project and there will be other phases, e.g., SMS, video etc. So when bidding please consider future development and maintenance opportunities.
If you need more details, please drop us a line. Thank you.
