Have you created or do you have a template/code for an online Auction application?
These are the main functions required:
1- SELL-Timed auction- submission of item with a 'highest bid', 'buy now' and 'limited time' options.
EG: submit an item for sale for only 24 hours, thereafter remove the item.
2- BUY- Search for items on auction, or submit a request of a particular item which gets broadcasted to all sellers registered.
a) this application will be focused on the car industry, but it will also be slightly modified for other industries. So the settings of the app has to be versatile.
b) we need a chat/messaging feature where buyer and seller can communicate privately, and share pictures, files, location etc. Similar to Whatsapp, but built into the App.
c) A back end portal saving all users, items submitted, chat messages, and activity must be saved in an MySQL db . Management of users (enabling/disabling) and manual overrides on the items, seeing history of the activity etc must be done from backend.
After some research, this is not a unique concept. There are a few open source, or commercial templates available. I will need the source code.
Budget is based on the fact that there are templates which can be modified. Please do not suggest to me from scratch as that will increase the costs.
