My business will act as a third party between suppliers (Vendors) and customers. Our job Works in tow was.
A- Gather the products from different vendors and market it to customers
B- Take customer's order for specific product or service and inform the vendors about this order to make their offers.
For part A:
Vendors can add their products to the website so customers can search and place their orders, but vendors will not be known by the customers till they make their order by selecting a specific product. Customers can categorize their search by the city, country, price or some features that will be added later.
For Part B:
I need a system that will provide me with the following features.
Allowing customer to order products or services
• Customers can make their order for some products or services he/she wants with options such as: showing his/her order to all vendors or vendors in specific city or country. The customer will receive an email when he/she gets an offer from a vender/ supplier. The customer can see all the offers while the vender can only see his/her offer.
• When a customer places an order on a specific vendor’s offer I should receive an e-mail with the order’s conformation and that will be a formal paper that I will present to the vendor to gain my percentage. (If you have a better idea please let me know)
• All the venders in the same selected city or country will receive a message from the website informing them about the new customers' orders.
• Customers can't make another order till they close their first order by choosing a specific vendor.( this will be flexible by website administrator).
It is better if the website build on any other open source e-commecer and has most of the options there. (Statics, editing flexibility, supervision,.......etc)
please post some examples of your works and your bids
