We need ebay auction feed integration into the ecommerce platform.
We are looking for the following functionality:
1. Create an auction -
Post certain product to ebay auction using one of pre-existing templates.
The relevant fields - title, description, initial price, buy now price, category etc - must be pre-populated from the product database - and the seller must be able to change those values before confirming the posting.
2. Manage the auctions -
need the functions to retrieve the open auctions summary, and the functions to retrieve all relevant info (bids/messages/disputes etc) on particular auction and to provide seller interaction (posting messages, premature auction termination etc)
3. Seller Notifications -
need the functions to extract the latest seller events - as well as event history
4. Checkout Capture -
the ebay checkout will be redirected to the seller's site, need to capture the product data and buyer info.
This is not a standalone script, it's a part of proprietary ecommerce project, and has to be developed within existing frameworks in co-operation with me - i'll provide any information you need.
The central part of this project has to be a module that provides abstraction layer for ebay auction interaction.
The frontend scripts are not critical, they just have to call the module methods. Usage of 3rd party components is not appreciated.
Promptly communications (Yahoo messenger) and at least partly availability during EST/EDT business time (GMT ~ 2pm-11pm) are desirable.
P.S. I'd like to work further with the one who'd perform well on this project - i have a lot more work to be done.
