I am looking for someone to design a marketplace website similar to Sitepoint.com. I want VBullitin integration like Sitepoint but I want the layout and graphic design to look more like [url removed, login to view] colors and flow.
The point of this website will be for consumers who are looking for wedding photographers. They will be able to login, post a request for a photographer, and receive multiple bids from photographers in there area. There will need to be a very detailed zip code search and notification for the photographers, and Google maps with directions to the photographer's studio.
When the photographer posts a bid they will be able to choose any amount to bid, it can be higher or lower than the previous bid and they will be able to add comments to there bid also. There will also need to be a comment section at the bottom, similar to a Sitepoint auction. This will allow them to post questions about there project before they bid.
Each photographer will have there own profile so when you click on there name it shows you there avatar, map of there location, little bit about there company, previous sales, and attachments they have.
Paypal will need to be integrated to the site to allow the photographers to purchase "credits" from my site. Each bid on a project will cost 1 credit. I need to be able to change the cost of each credit through the admin section and the photographers will need to be able to purchase credits instantly through paypal. This way I can raise or lower the cost to bid with one field change.
There will need to be an admin section that I can login to and easily change what is said in the text boxes throughout the site. I want to be able to change the main page news but logging in to the admin instead of editing the script. I also do not need the books, contests, kits, and videos section that Sitepoint has. I do however want the forum, marketplace, articles, and member area.
There are a lot of additional small things that I need such as notifying the photographer if someone in there area posts a project within 50 miles or so. Also I need to ability to add or remove credits from photographer's accounts, or give them unlimited credits, etc, etc.
