I need a directory component developed for Joomla 1.5, much like Mosets Tree but with an auction function added and the capability for users to add and update their own listings.
What I like about Mosets Tree is their functionality to add new fields and modify the layout from the back-end. I also enjoy the layout of Mosets Tree within the Details pages of each listing. The header displaying most of the fields of information, followed by a description and thumbnails for each listing.
The categories will need to be much like the layout for Mosets Tree, I will need a management feature to add, edit, delete, publish and unpublished categories.
*I will need the functionality to add new fields for each listing through the back-end of Joomla.
*I will need the functionality to upload new templates for the layout of the details pages
*I will need a filter and search function within the front-end.
*I like the listing style of Mosets Tree.
*Need to implement mxComment Component
Most like any other auction feature. Count down timer based on initial user preferences. Reserves, buy now button and minimum bids set initially by user. I'm sure you know best how this auction will need to be setup.
The Auction will end and the highest bidder will be chosen and the runner up will be notified that they are next in line if the buyer does not come through.
Obviously every auction system also needs to allow for logged in users to bid on the auction.
*Only three bids allowed to be placed until the buyer deposits $100 into the escrow account.
Users should have the ability to save listings to a favorites list, any auction that they bid on will automatically be added to this list.
Buyers will deposit money into their account.
Buyers can then create an escrow account specific auctions that they have won.
Buyers can then release the funds once they receive the transfer, buyers cannot cancel an escrow account.
Sellers may choose to cancel an escrow account
Either party may request the administrator to review the situation and post information about the situation.
USER CONTROL PANEL
Registered users will have the ability to add, delete and post modifications to their listings. All listings for a user should be posted to their Community Builder profile.
*Once all information is posted by the user, the user will then be prompted with a second page that will allow the user optional features for their listing. Optional features include:
*Become featured Listing
*Add reserve or buy now button
*Extend bidding time to 60 or 90 days.
*Add listing to more than one category.
*I will need the ability to choose whether or not to charge additional amounts for any new field that is created.
This will need to be a component for Joomla 1.5 if you need to add any modules or plugins to make this work, that is ok.
I would like to see as much Ajax and use of [url removed, login to view] as possible.
Consider this a draft, I will have very specific fields for the listings once I choose a bidder.
Price is obviously always a concern, but time is my highest priority on this project.
I will be choosing the lowest bidder UNLESS you elaborate on this draft and explain your ideas to me, showing me that you understand this project's needs.
