I would like to invite you to submit a fixed price bid offer for the development of a website with a similar format to Ebay &
I am looking for someone to drive this project forward and work closely with a web designer and me to ensure regular communication is maintained and all the website requirements are achieved. It is important that you have time to focus attention on this project as completion is required as soon as possible.

Please do not bid if you do not have the time available to complete this website.

Site Description...

• The website shall be able to show advert listings dependent on user searches.

• At the top of each listings page a more advanced search can be used to further filter listings.

• Listings shall appear similar to those on Ebay and Autotrader (i.e. picture, title, short description, feedback rating). When the listing is selected, the full advert will be displayed.

• Listings to identify amount of pictures / videos, etc that are within the detailed advert.

• Listings shall be filtered/sorted by seller’s feedback rating, price range, and their location (i.e. distance from buyer), etc. The postcode locator shall work the opposite to how postcode locator works (i.e. the buyer shall enter a postcode or town and only the sellers able to travel to that location will be listed – Therefore when the seller registers they shall state in miles how far they are willing to travel).

• The buyer shall be able to purchase from a seller’s advert through the website and leave feedback for the seller once the goods have been delivered. It is important that only the purchaser can leave feedback, feedback is not open to the general public or general registered users. Therefore, although a 3rd party payment facility (paypal etc) may be used, it is important that the website can monitor transaction details internally.

• The website shall have user log-in (Sign in / Register) and a user account. The buyer’s account shall show details of purchases (i.e. purchase price, dates, descriptions, etc) and notifying of required feedback, payment of ongoing purchases. The seller’s account shall show details of sales orders, their editable listing, time until listing expires, etc.

• An email system within the user’s accounts page so buyer and seller can contact each other as well as the website contact (similar to Ebay).

• A seller, once registered, shall be able to construct & place an advert through standard category selection fields adding a customised description (i.e. able to change fonts, colours, add bullet points, etc) priced at a standard base rate. Then have the option to add photos, videos, make their listing bold, etc which shall increase the listing price. Once the listing is posted it will last for the duration the seller has paid for and be editable over this period. The listing shall automatically terminate, notifying the seller, when the duration period paid for has expired (similar to Ebay).

• General public shall be able to search and review all listings and adverts but shall only be able to purchase once registered.

• As well as the pages required to accommodate the above points, the website shall also have information and support pages to advise how the site works, Contact, buyer protection information, terms and conditions etc.

• I would like to work closely with the programmer and for the programmer to work closely with the designer to ensure the requirements are met without any misunderstandings. This will not be a go away, design a site, see me when it’s complete type of project. I would like to be able to review each stage of the build.

• Design programming specifications will be issued to the successful contractor once contracts / confidentiality agreements have been signed.

• The website shall be developed to ensure future modifications / updates can be easily incorporated and to facilitate easy control and maintenance of registered users and their account details. (CMS)

• If any of the requirements stated above, such as but not limited to, postcode locator, payment system, images, etc require additional funds. Please identify in your bid, otherwise they will be assumed to be included within your bid price.

Preference will be given to the bidder who has a good understanding and experience of accounts details such as payment methods, postcode locator
systems, CMS etc. And who is located local to Darlington, County Durham. All UK bids will be considered.

All rights and IPR will transfer to me on completion of the website.

As highlighted the requirements of this website are similar to those of Ebay and Autotrader, please identify any additional requirements not listed above that may need to be included/considered.

Please only bid if you are confident that you can complete the work required in its entirety. This includes all programming and possibly some design. I do not require a static website.

You have the opportunity to submit your best fixed price bid offer on review of this brief. Please do not submit your offer if you do not fully understand the requirements. I am relying on you as experts to ask the relevant questions in order to determine your best fixed price offer. The bid price shall not be subject to adjustment, for whatever reason, once the contract is awarded.

I am just an individual, not a company or organisation, so budget is limited and will be a large factor when considering tenders.

I will not be paying a deposit, but would like to meet the successful programmer to thoroughly discuss the requirements of the website functionality. After this initial meeting, if preferred, stage payments can be arranged as website milestones are completed, although 60% of the fixed price will be retained until contract completion.

Any questions are welcome.

Thank you for your time & I look forward to your response.
