**This website must be up and running by the end of August**
I need a website to purchase scrap precious metals from the public it needs to be a clean, professional design with a focus on the customer receiving the highest price for their metals, It is endorsed by a UK celbrity and I would want their picture on the home page along with a bit about us and the current prices we are paying for metals & Coins.
The customer needs to be able to input weights and to receive an instant buying quote for their scrap gold silver or platinum.
Registration would be completed on the website and the client would need to click a link in an email to confirm that the email address given is correct. I would also require a random sequence of letters/numbers to be entered to help avoid bot registration.
When a client enters details of their metal I need them to be able to print off a delivery sheet which will show the weights & carat of metal they have entered along with the price we are willing to pay, along with their details and chosen method of receiving payment, the system should then give this a unique reference number which will be printed on the delivery sheet and then stored in our back office system.
Once we receive the parcel we will change the status from “Expected” to “Received & Processing” The client should receive an email telling them that we have received their parcel and that it is being processed. They should also be able to see this if they log into our website. If the parcel is not marked received within 7 day the parcel information an unique reference should automatically be deleted, If we change the status to received then it should remain on the system for 6 years.
We would need to be able to log into the backoffice and see the amount of parcels and value that we expect to receive.
We will then check the contents of the parcel and update it accordingly via the back office, the client should be able to see their original details i.e. the weights and carats submitted and also our checked details, If the difference is more than 5% less of the original total order value the client should receive an email from us giving them the option to either accept the new total or to request return of the parcel. I would need to be able to edit the wordings of these automatic emails periodically.
If the weights are correct then we will change the status in the back office to “payment sent” once this has been done the system needs to be able to produce a purchase invoice based on the weights inputted from the back office. This will be a standard format invoice.
Invoices would need to be available in standard format and in PDF. I would need to be able to run reports on these invoices so that I can see for example all gold purchases from a specified date to a specified date etc etc.
Client registration – storing details of their parcel and the status – Sent/Received/Checked/Actual Weight/Settlement Amount/ Paid etc. etc. Client needs to be able to log in and view their trading history with us.
Back office login that allows us to view orders due to be received and update or correct the weights/carats etc.
The website needs to be optimised for search engines which shouldn’t be that difficult I have looked at the top ranking pages on google for the terms “scrap gold” “sell gold” “buy gold” and precious metals and they are all quite poor so I would want this website to achieve good results. I would require 10 key phrases for search engine optimisation along with search engine friendly content.
I would like a clean looking website that is easy to use and very much focused on the customer receiving cash in their hand, I would like the standard pages e.g. about us, terms & conditions, why sell to us, a history of precious metals, what happens to your metals….. etc etc.
The backoffice system should be very user friendly and be able to be operated by someone with little technical knowledge.
If you require any further details please don't hesitate to contact us.
I will provide images and some artwork to the winning bidder.
