We are a US company to be formed that will resell Timeshares on our website.
We are looking for an individual or small company to develop our website according to the specifications provided below. Our goals are for low cost and high quality. Time is not a factor.
PROJECT BIDS (PLEASE READ):
Please provide a bid ONLY THE DEVELOPMENT of the site. If you think you can also design it, PM me the additional cost for the design. I may use an American designer to work with you if I feel like your services are perfect for the back end, but not for the front end. In addition, please address the issue of future support, changes, etc. Finally, please suggest what platforms, applications, or other resources you will likely use.
BIDDERS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED!!! Also, please don't start thinking this is a project to change the world of online timeshare reselling and bid $1000 to pad your budget. You will not get this job.
The only real development needed will be a real-time database that shows visitors our stock. There should be a backend control panel for our company to update the stock. Users will be able to search for items. Some items can be paid for directly online. We will use this control panel to manage all our online and offline listings, so the interface needs to be user friendly and robust. Think of a generic ecommerce package but modified. It should follow our company's work flow: shipped, emailed, faxed, etc. I DON'T REQUIRE A PERFECT CUSTOM CODED PROJECT. If you can mod an existing ecommerce or open source app to do this and get your fees down, power to you.
Implementation of a gateway or paypal payments will be a FUTURE [url removed, login to view] also request a message board/forums for our visitors.
