Objective: To design a buy/sell site for free audio equipment (speakers, amplifiers etc) classified ads. Note there will be auction listings in the first phase. Note there is also no need for shopping cart integration at this point or payment system because the ads will be placed free.
1. Design a logo
2. Front Page
The front page will have the look and feel of ebay with a different menu structure. For quoting a cost assume the front page will look the same as ebay. It won’t be exactly but changes will not be major. The pictures that appear on ebay will need to be inserted automatically from random listings.
3. Implement a CMS/admin panel
This will be the process:
-Post/modify a classified ad, - will involve selecting category, typing in brand and model, condition, type in description, pricing, shipping, weight, option to load pictures from the hard drive.
- Show active listings
- Changed password, email address, shipping address,
- there is no need for any auctions functionality at this point
- implement a feedback system, need a system for leaving and approving feedback.
- Have the ability to save and delete listings as favorites.
- shipping estimate, so will need to build in shipping calculator
4. User new registration page
5. Search functionality – there will need to be search functionality so the user types in the item and it will be found.
6. Listing page
The main listing page for each item will include the fields from the “post/modify a classified as” above i.e.; brand and model, condition, type in description, pricing, shipping, location, weight, feedback.
Please put in a preliminary bid based on the above information. I will send more information to the people who seem qualified who will then be asked to place a final bid.
In your initial bid please include other similar sites you have set up before. Please do not waste your or my time with bids that say “when can we start” etc. I will only consider bids that have a PM and in the PM examples of similar jobs that they have completed before and proposed approach.
My preference would be for someone who has designed a similar classified site/CMS and then modify the previous site to meet my requirements.
Note this job requires both design skills and programming skills. So it will need to be a team approach. Note I am not sure how much this will cost so have put an estimated budgeted amount. I need this done properly and within a timely manner so will pay a fair price for good quality work. You will need to ensure the deadlines can be met.
Note I have 2 other sites that need developing after this so if you do a good job on this one then there will be more things to do.
Payment will be made through escrow based on the achievement of milestones mutually agreeable.
Feel free to ask any questions.
Thanks for looking.
