Hello website developers,
I need an eCommerce website developed that allows members to search for and hire others to take care of their pets while at work, on the weekend or even when they are out of town as well as allow members to provide pet care services. **This website needs to be similar to [url removed, login to view], but just the pet care portion.** This portal will facilitate the process of finding the right match for those who need the service with those who can provide the service.
Please review the detailed section for a high-level overview.
**I need an experienced website developer, who can provide clean, professional, optimized and commented code. This website needs to be thoroughly tested before going into production. I am also asking that you provide two months of additional service in tweaking code and providing bug fixes after the site is in production.
**With your bid, please provide me your plan on programming language(s), database, payment gateway or shopping cart ideas, background check services, your thoughts on my vision, other ideas you have, and an rough project finish time?****
**After bid acceptance, you need to create a detailed specification of all website functionality and what the website will offer. We will then discuss it, tweak it and then you can start developing it.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I need an eCommerce website developed that allows members to search for and hire others to take care of their pets while at work, on the weekend or even when they are out of town as well as allow members to provide pet care services. This website will be similar to [url removed, login to view], but just the pet care portion. This portal will facilitate the process of finding the right match for those who need the service with those who can provide the service.
This website portal will allow users to become a member one of two ways, either a "seeking pet care provider" or a "pet care provider" member, but not both. This would require a separate login for that member.
If you are a "seeking a pet care provider" member, you will create a pet profile for each of your pets which will include the type of pet, name, age, sex, weight, breed, vaccinations, pet photo, likes and dislikes, etc... You will then post a pet job which will include your pet profile information, a brief description of the job, type of visit required (walk, drop in, day visit, overnight and extended stay, grooming, trainer), pet service required (feed pet, walk pet, give pet medication, etc?), length of job, pay, location, etc?
If you are a "pet care provider" member, in your profile, you will provide your qualifications/resume, experience, skills and certifications, education, major, hobbies/interests, religion, languages spoken, location and service area within 'X' miles, sex, age, smoker status, if your can provide your own transportation, pet preferences, type of visit you provide, services you provide, availability, pay expectations, upload photo of yourself, etc? Pet care provider members will also have an option to undergo a background check, whose results would be made visible on the members profile to potential customers (this may improve the pet care provider in landing a job with a potential customer).
Members can then search for other members in their area who have posted a pet job, or are a "pet care provider". "Pet care provider" members looking for pet jobs will have the ability to search within a zip code radius, type of pet, type of visit, type of service, pay, member rating, etc? Members seeking a "pet care provider" will have the ability to search within a zip code radius, type of pets serviced, type of visit offered, pay, member rating, age and sex of provider, if the member has been back ground check verified, last time member signed in, etc... After providing the search results, members can then communicate with the other party in a private chat, similar to vworker.com. If they agree on working with each other, the member will then select the pet care provider for the specific job and mark that job as "hired and in progress", which will then move the pet job to "CURRENT JOBS", within their profile. When their services have been completed, both members can review and rate each other and the job will move to "PAST JOBS", within their profile. The ratings would be visible on the member's profile.
If you are a non-member of the website (someone just browsing around), you will have the ability to search for "pet care provider" members as well as active pet jobs in your area, but you will not have the ability to communicate or see specific contact information from this listing. You will have to register and become a member of the website to do this.
This website will make money by the following:
- "Seeking a pet care provider" members will select a monthly, quarterly, bi-yearly or yearly membership plan.
- "Pet care provider" members will be on a BASIC and FREE plan, unless they wish to partake in a background check, which will be an additional fee and the results will be shown on the member's profile. Members having passed a background check will be marked as having passed a background check "Pet care provider".
**Do you have a better idea on how this website will make money through a membership plan or job posting fee plan? Should both parties pay a membership plan?**
This website portal will have an open forum/blogging area for members to post, answer and search questions about anything pet related. These questions will be tied back to the member, so they can easily search for questions and/or answers to questions they have posted or responded to.
The website portal will have a main page that jumps out as well as a help and FAQ section about the website, what it offers, how it works, membership benefits, common interview questions, disclaimer information, etc?
The website will be hosted through [url removed, login to view] using either Linux or Windows server with a well built mysql or mssql backend database. Programming language(s) to be used will be PHP, AJAX and maybe JQuery or ASP.NET. **There will be a payment gateway, OTHER THAN PAYPAL, which will be used to assess members with a membership fee.** **There will also be a background check service in place to verify members who are providing pet care service.** The final solution will be powerful, visually stimulating, user friendly and include admin management functionality.
