I am in need of a programmer to create a script for me that will run a "deal of the day" website similar to [url removed, login to view] / [url removed, login to view] / [url removed, login to view] ect...
Please review the look/feel and function of the above websites prior to bidding and before continuing on. This will give you a better visual and idea of what I am discussing below.
The script must do the following:
Allow a product image(s) and description to be posted for sale with a specified quantity.
Allow the admin to set the time the "deal of the day" product will switch to the next product automatically. - example: If the admin wants the site to feature a new product at midnight Eastern Standard Time, they will set that in the admin area or config of the script and the site/script will automatically switch at midnight.
Allow the admin to setup several products for the deal of the day in a "queue" so that the site can run itself for several days, switching from one product to the next at the specified time the admin inputs in the config.
When the product quantity specified by the admin reaches zero (sold out) the site will no longer allow visitors to purchase that product.
When the quantity for the item is above zero (in stock and available for purchase) the script/site will display an "I want one" graphic. When the quantity reaches zero (sold out) the site will automatically switch to a graphic that says "sold out". The "I want one graphic" will link to a page where the user will specify the quantity they want and then transfer them to the payment gateway.
When the item quantity reaches a set low amount (percentage such as only 10% left or a specific number such as only 5 items remain, whichever is easiest to code) the graphic showing "i want one" will change to a different graphic that will be animated letting the viewers know that the item is almost sold out.
The script/website will need to work with several payment gateways but I would like it to start with paypal. I would like to discuss this in further detail with programmers upon request.
I would like to provide further details to interested parties upon request. The above is pretty much the scope of work. I would like it to have some sort of back end to manage the site with stats if possible (sales stats ect...) but am looking to keep the price down for the initial script and then pay as I go with the programmer on upgrades.
Important - I am looking for reasonable bids on this. I am hoping that the programmer I chose will give me some slack on the price because there will be more work and money for them in the future with upgrades and add-ons that I will need done by that same programmer.
Please contact me with any questions via PM. I would want this project started as soon as possible.
