[url removed, login to view] is a poker site, where the poker players - in addition to the money they can win or loose - earn VIP Points by playing poker. Activity – winning or loosing – earns points.
Theese points can be used at the XXXX VIP Shop. The VIP Points is kind of a currency in the shop.
The shop is based on an osCommerce 2.2 RC2, where a number of small changes have been made. For instance is the display of choice of currency disabled, as is the Notification box and the review box, shipping module (the shipping costs are included) etc. But also “On The Fly Auto Thumbnailer” has been added to the shop.
On top of this certain jobs shall be done. Theese jobs are listed below:
A) Implement new design. Design Mock-Up is made and all the graphical elements (icons etc.) are provided by the customer. (mock-up is available)
B) Extra Custommer field – "XXXX User Name" (mandatory) – and XXXX VIP Points on account.
C) Change emails (order confirmation and status changes)
• - The XXXX User Name should be included in all emails
• - The product(s) should be stated in status change emails
• - Text and other stuff should be added
• - Formatting??
- In the shop we have small images (Thumbnails) to be shown in product listings and on the front page.
But the same small image is shown on the product page - where you can click to see a larger picture.
The customer would like to have a larger picture to be shown on the product page.
I should note, that we have already added a "On The Fly Auto Thumbnailer"-function, that makes the small pictures so very much nice to look at. And obviously we cannot have that the wish for different picture sizes would conflict with this.
E) The special currency – VIP Points – has to be displayed with a space after the amount. Today it is done like this 1234_Vip Points (with a _ )
F) We need to get XXXX VIP Points from the XXXX Database – pairing it with the XXXX User Name as identifier. These points should be put on “account” to be used. And if insufficient points on account – no purchase.
G) We need to update the XXXX Database with the deduction of points (not the new balance, as the player might be playing and earning points at the same time) from each order.
The XXXX Shop is hosted at [url removed, login to view]
The implementation of this shop to the site [url removed, login to view] will be done by the current IT company that has been in charge of the [url removed, login to view] site for a while. The implementation is probably going to be done via an iframe solution, whereby the user not will notice anything, but that the shop is a integrated part of XXXX.com.
The XXXX Database is a MySQL database, serviced by another IT company. We assume that access to this database can be granted. However it may be practical to co-ordinate with the current IT-company, how data is retrieved and stored from and to this database.
