Phase 2 IVGAH Development:
I) USER INTERFACE:
1) OLD AUCTIONS:
Ability to transfer old auctions to reside in a permanent section on the web site - Old auctions should be searchable by key word and have the PDF catalog linked to that area.
this can be done by creating a new category and after sale auction item will be associated to that category.
ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIME: 5 hours
2) Current Auctions:
Can be Sorted by:
# of Views
Most recent bid
Currently Seller is only admin, because auctions can only be submited from backend, so sort by seller option will be added once functionality of adding auctions is added at frontend.
ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIME: 3-5 hours
3) Before the auction begins, the user should be able to see:
Picture - Description - Current Bid - # of views + Starting Date (after the start date - time remaining)
ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIME : 2 hours
4) There will be a reserve functionality (I believe WeBid has that already available) - I would like to this work like eBay - lets say an item is posted with starting bid at $100 but there is a reserve at $500 (no one will know this). Bids will work normally until the first bidder hits the $500 threshold - then there will be a note that the reserve is met
Webid has this functionality, have to check because lot of things were changed in the script.
ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIME 4-6 hours
II) SELLER INTERFACE:
The consignment section will give way to a &quot;preferred Seller&quot; area. The idea to offer a simple interface so that sellers can create their own profiles and sell their merchandise:
1) The &quot;Collection&quot; section will disappear and sellers will be given IDs. The only area with sub categories is the &quot;Categories&quot; button.
ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIME : 5 hours
OPTIONAL - IF WE CAN AGREE ON BUDGET TO GET THIS FAR:
2) Sellers profiles will the following work flow:
A) All &quot;users&quot; can be sellers
B) All applicants to become &quot;users&quot; must be approved by admin (this currently exists)
C) Once a seller is approved they can create their profile which includes:
D) - 500 characters to describe their background and who they are
E) - Ability to upload one photo (optional)
F) - Username will be displayed (mandatory) real name display next to it is optional
G) - Ability to add one link however, this will be a simple process
H) - Users will only have free form text fields - there will be no options for font sizes. All fonts and sizes will be standard
I) - to add a the one allowed link, the user can add in a form field named &quot;links&quot; which has two areas 1) Title of Link 2) URL to be linked to. All links in the site will automatically open to a new tab in browser.
J) When a user clicks on the seller user name, then seller details above will show.
ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIME : 6-8 hours
