I'm looking to setup a website similiar to [url removed, login to view] but with less features. All I need is the backend/frontend coded, but I will be providing the design for you to use for the script. The features from Merger Network that I would require are:
Search by state, price, business category type
Where buyers & sellers can register for an account free but the system should block buyers from contacting the sellers unless they've upgraded from the "Basic free registration" to the premium registration" where they can review all listings posted by sellers. Basically the description, title and other general details will be available, but *no* contact details will be available for viewing by "free members" until they have upgraded.
Users should be able to update their profile with options to change email, change password, change address and telephone number, and also review billing history.
Contact Seller Function
Once upgraded the buyer would be able to view all contact details including phone number and address, and be able to use the contact form to contact the buyer through our send a message form. When a buyer uses the form to contact the seller, it would send email notification to the "seller" based on the email address they have on file.
Browse Function : where you can browse the listings based on State, Category Type or Price.
Ability to post listings (sellers)
Payment System: Integrated with Paypal, and Linkpoint for making the payments for upgrades.
Confirmation emails of sign up details should be sent to both user and admin upon successful user registration. Admin should also be emailed upon user being successfully charged for upgrading.
Option for registered users to "close" their listing once the business has sold or if they decide take the business off the market.
Option for users to cancel their premium upgrade membership
A simple contact help form that registered users will see in the user area. When this is filled out, it would send an email message to admin, along with also storing the message in the admin area.
When listings are posted it should go into "Queue" in admin area for approval. The admin should also have the option in admin area to "auto-approve" if he wishes to do so, but it's important that there is the option to turn this on/off. If set to "off" the listings submitted will go into a queue for admin review, before going live on the site.
Option to email all buyers/sellers, separated by type. You can email "all" or you can email buyers only or sellers only.
Option to change admin password.
Option for admin to edit or delete listings
Option for admin to edit, delete, or suspend users.
Users whose payment are not automatically renewed when payment is due (credit card declined) would be sent automatic email stating the card was declined and to update their card on file or paypal account on file. If after 3 days no update is made, their listing goes into the "free mode" and their priviliges removed until they decided to sign up again for the premium service.
