Looking for Web Content Management System Developer who can build an auction site for multiple users and limited to law text books only. Server is Apache/Linux.
Here are the Basic Requirements of the Auction Site.
I want the members to only have to follow a few basic and very clear prompts:
1. Enter "a description of the book(s) they wish to sell ie, title, author, condition of book and date published.
2. Enter the Starting Bid price
3. Upload a photo of the book(s) they are selling
Like any other ordinary online auction site but it must be limited to text books only.
All text books being auctioned will automatically end after 10 days of listing.
Once auction has ended and a student has won a book on auction, an automatic email notice should be sent to the seller and the purchaser advising of the other parties email address (which is on our membership data) so that they can get in contact with each other and arrange for payment and postage without my involvement.
This is a free service for law students to sell/auction their unwanted used law textbooks and make some extra cash. However in order to be able to sell a book on auction or bid for a book, each user must become a member on my site.
Therefore, the home page should be a display of the law text books currently on auction (eg. like ebay displays its items) with a search engine to sort by price, state, time ending soonest, time ending latest). If a user clicks on a book in the auction display then the advertisement for that particular textbook should open up and the user should be able to read the description etc.
The "Become a member" button should be displayed in the corner of the homepage with a notice that states " To sell textbooks on LSW, students must become members. Please note that membership is free. The on-line law textbook auction is a free service".
The Membership Registration Form should have the user submit the following info:
State you Reside In:
It is also important that the registration form has a box that must be clicked by the new member which states that they "have read and understood the terms and conditions of use of this website".
If they do not tick the box, then they cannot proceed to the next step.
Once they submit the registration form, an automatic "verify your account message" should be sent to their email address which they must click to confirm that they wish to become a member. This is to ensure that they have not provided a fake email address.
I would like the background of the auction site to be a sky blue colour. I want the top of the display page to have the Slogan in big nice font "MAKE SOME QUICK CASH AND SELL YOUR UNWANTED LAW TEXTBOOKS HERE.....OR BUY A USED LAW TEXTBOOK AND SAVE MONEY!!!"
Obviously their needs to be a bidding function on the site as well. So users can bid for a book on sale. I will leave this up to you but just please make it very user friendly as it is university students only that will be using this site. So it must be tailored to them and the design must appeal to university law students that want to sell their used law textbooks on my site.
The benefit for me is that this textbook auction feature will attract more students all around australia to my existing website: www.lawstudentsworld.com.au where i offer law tutoring services.
