I need a site built that allows members to exchange data. This site will be at data, swap shop dot com. There is a script there now but it was not designed specifically for a data exchange but possibly you can use it and modify it. Let me know if your bid is to modify or design a new script. Either way is fine with me.
This will be a membership site designed for a limited few that are data wholesale providers. Anyone can view the list of data types available for sale or trade but must be a member to correspond with members. When data is posted there will be a brief explanation of the data that was just posted on the main page.
Anyone looking for a particular data file can post what they are looking for and they also can post what they have to trade. Examples may be US Consumer Data, Business Data, Canadian Databases, UK Databases etc. Those offering data would upload samples of the data for other members to view and all data exchanged must go through our server. Person posting data for sale or trade would have the option of allowing anyone to view sample or require they first give a user permission to view the sample. All correspondence between members requires we first view and approve the message unless we set their account to allow messages without this feature. We need to be notified via email each time a message is left for another member. There will be a TOS applicants click on prior to gaining access to the members area and we have to approve new members. When members post data they have for trade there will be multiple fields explaining the type of data, age of data, if updates are available and at least five or six other related fields. New data for trade has to be approved by admin unless we set their account to post any data. We will charge members for access. They can pay per trade or per month for unlimted access. Posting data for sale or trade is free.
I would like the complete site built and SEO work completed which just means clean code with keywords added. You choose the time frame but agree that for any day late the project price drops 5%. Seems reasonable as you are choosing the time to develop this. All days are counted as days to completion including weekends your birthday or whatever. This point is not negotiable so if you can't do the job in 10 days then bid on it for 15 days etc. I will provide frequent feedback throughout this project and ask you keep in close contact during this project.
These are answer others had on a similar project so throwing these in just to be clear. Data will be stored on our server. Auctions will not be used. Size of data files will vary greatly. Some files are small and others can be a Gig. Primary goal of the site is to bring together people with data that can exchange the data so both end up with more data without spending any large sums of money. Members can sale data but we would not get involved in the sale other than a small transaction fee. Site will have a very limited market so we don't expect a great deal of traffic to it but there will be a lot of data residing there.
Here is a site that does some of what I am speaking of email results, dot com except I don't think samples are there and they put people in touch with each other for a fee. I would like all data to go through our servers so we can assure it is legal and valid licensed data prior to it being traded or sold through our site.
I'm open to your ideas so don't be afraid to toss them out. If any part of this is overly complex then we may be able to skip that part of the project just let me know prior to bidding. This project was previously awarded and the coder did not complete it within the time alloted and therefore is being posted again.
Thank you for your consideration.
