Hello and thank you for taking your time with us.
We need an original and professional website which will be in 95% similar to Penny Auction sites like: [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], quibids.com. The script must be tested and 100 PERCENT bug free. A full working demo is needed asap. Also, a full support of 90 days is needed upon purchasing the script. Upon completion of the projection, and testing by us, it is agreed that WE OWN THE SCRIPT. You must also install the application on our server and make it so it is relatively secure from any kind of hacking.
We REQUIRE experts who have experience in building or customizing Penny Auction scripts and Penny Auction websites or similar. Your experience in this area will make the communicate easier and faster. If you have never built a penny auction website, please don't bid.
If you've done a Penny Auction website prior, we would like to see the completed work. Please send us a sample of your auction site.
We need all auction platform that includes everything from the bidding process, to registration, buying bids, Autobidder.
Quality work is in top of priority. Preferably need to be done from scratch, but if you have something ready to go and just need to change it maybe could be fine. Need to have the ability to add new features as we grow with time.
Our goal is to get a site built, modified, customized a new type of Penny Auction software. If you have previous built Auction software, it'll help speeds up the process but other than that, the original version is not much valuable to us.
Code must be customizable, changeable and adjustable in the future. We need to get SOURCE CODE to be able to change ourselves everything what we would like in future with no restrictions.
The site must have an easy to use administrative control panel. It is very important how it looks, it is also important to function correctly because users only see final product off course. Actually we prefer to be able to easy change more of everything on site as much as we can.
The site should function normally using any of popular browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Google Chrome, Safari and more)
The design should be simple but good looking and easy to navigate for users. The point is more on functionality and easy for eye using purpose than fancy design with a bunch of graphics floating around. So seeking a clean, professional design that will be easy to navigate. So we want to avoid the repeating look of the other sites out there and to give our customers the best that we can offer with our unique service.
Must be off-course fully functional after tests.
- User registration and account verification by e-mail
- Function with more languages and simple changing and adding with CMS, function with more currencies
- Buying bid packages
- The ability for users to get free bids for registering and for buying bid packages for the first time.
- General pages such as terms and conditions of use and a help section which we can edit. Add another pages too.
- 'PayPal' and 'Click and Buy' are default payment gateways. We will use the PayPal merchant account gateway and you must integrate this. We will also use bank direct pos payment method at the same time.
- The time increased anywhere between 10 to 30 seconds every time a Bid is placed. (there should be a place where the site administrator can change the Number of seconds per auction and as the default.
- The automatic bidding system – set price range and number of bids
- Voucher function with adding bids to winners account automatically.
- 'Buy Now' function, which enables to buy the product for spent bids and additional payment up to the retail price. So, this function must be able to count this additional payment.
- Content Management System (CMS) Platform.
- Add, Edit, Delete and Clone Auctions.
- Use macros to start, stop and publish auctions.
- View the winning bidder and update the status of the auction e.g. pending, running, ended and completed.
- View, Edit, Add, Delete and Suspend users.
- View user's Bidding history and Purchased Bid packs, give the user free bids and refund bids to the user.
- Manage the website content such as the terms & conditions and help page content.
- Set the bidding packages and prices to buy bids.
- Administrator can set the Number of wins allowed per user per day or month. Each product should have a category so the Administrator can limit the Number of wins per category as well per day or month.
- Administrator can limit the number of Live Auctions and number of featured auctions which show prominently.
The administration section should be easy to use. The administrator should be able to set override settings per auction and global settings for each auction. The look and feel should be similar to the BEST auction sites available with similar functionality along with auto pilot bidding.
The site should be able to handle thousands of people per day and more.
Additional Features we want
1. Referral but must buy credits to use referral credits (people can refer other people and get credits)
2. Buy back option - if the user wins an item but would like to get out of owning it, we can buy it back ( for what he/she spent less a buy-back fee ).
Payment will be made once the application is installed and working on the server.
We will also pay for support or bug fixes on a monthly basis.
We may add additional features later so make the code such that additional modules can be added on later.
The website should be SEO friendly and should be fully search engine optimized.
