This will be an extremely large project. I will only hire a company/team with EXTENSIVE experience in all aspects of web/software design. This will be strictly an Auction-oriented site.
***This PROJECT assumes you have an EXCELLENT understanding of Active Server Pages, VBScript, database methods, etc.***
What kind of work to expect:
1. PSD/Dreamweaver files are a MUST and must be readily accessable to me for future updates on website appearance.
2. my client will be contracting out company logo...so do not worry about creating a logo just use CLONE and it will be changed before website becomes active.
3. my clients host uses cPanelX, so all work must be compatible
CURRENT cPanel Server info is as follows:

Some other web examples/ideas and (color schemes primary palette), of quality-type-work and to help give you an overall idea:
1. [url removed, login to view]
2. [url removed, login to view]
3. [url removed, login to view]
4. [url removed, login to view]
5. [url removed, login to view]
6. [url removed, login to view]
Notice the layouts are beautiful...simple yet sophisticated!
5. This site will be 100% online auction oriented so it needs to have: multilingual interfaces, admin console with customer database, all working forms (i.e. registration,site search,contact us,etc.), payment method will be done initially through PayPal...so PayPal integration like ebay is a MUST. Later on we will expand to different forms of payment and depending on your fine work we might continue to use you for more projects in the future. AGAIN FUNCTIONALITY IS KEY.....more advanced functions that emulate Ebay type actions the better. a Stats/Updates/new-auction type functionality on the homepage will be key. The ultimate desire for this site is Auction Automation!
6. Remember! This site should be an exact fully functioning clone/replica of Ebay and bid4assets.com....this is key.
Finally! I do demand nothing but top-quality work, I am VERY PICKY, and I must remind you that FUNCTIONALITY is key to this project. I am willing to pay top dollar for great work but I do ask for nothing but top notch work. PLEASE if you do not have the portfolio to back up your bid.....this project is NOT for you. I will also need an after service guarantee...meaning I will want to test out functionality/structure of site before purchasing. Please reply ONLY if you are prepared to work hard, have A LOT of experience and again are prepared to back it up with a flawless portfolio. Thanks for taking the time to check out this post.
