I need a simple PHP script/class to query the Ebay API and return to me the estimated closing price of a product. So here is what your script would do:
1) The input to your script is a query (e.g. "ipod nano 8gb")
2) The output of your script will be an estimated price. (e.g. "$76.54")
a) Query the Ebay API (in PHP) with the product name. Filter the results by "Completed Items"
b) The API will return a list of closed auctions.
c) Run some post processing to to clean the list (I can give you the list of rules for this)
d) Calaculate the final price and store the results in mysql DB.
I estimate that this is less than 1 day's work for a good PHP/Mysql programmer. If you think this is going to take more than 1 day, you have probably not understood the project correctly (Please PM me with any questions)
The right bidder should be an expert in PHP and MySQL as I have a lot of follow on work (so this project is just the initial test). Experience with XML is a big plus. If you have worked with the Ebay API before, that is a big PLUS. Please bid with samples of your work. I wont be considering applications with useless notes like "Can be done" or "Lets start". Please note: This is just the start. Please dont bid if you wont be available for follow-on projects.
We have done a lot of projects on scriptlance and usually result in follow-on work. We are very easy to work with and usually dont hassle on things (as long as work is done). If work is great, programmers will be aptly rewarded.
