The site is intended to provide a service to the public.
Have a contractor look for you instead of you for him. The person uploads the specifications of the job (Opportunity) on the site. there after members of the site can purchase credits and place offers on the opportunities available.
Credits will be charged at a certain price for 10; 20; 50; 100; 300 credits. becoming cheaper the more they purchase. Every offer made deducts a set amount off of the starting bid and deducts a credit from the member.
John purchased 20 credits for $ 20.
Every time he makes an offer, he loses a credit and the Starting price (opening Price of the job determined by the creator of the opportunity) gets deducted with $ 5.
(this will obviously be in Rands instead of Dollars as the site is intended for South African currency)
It works similar to a Penny auction site except that the product gets uploaded by a user and the bidding price declines instead up escalating. Also the offer is available for a certain time frame with no additional seconds added if an offer is made in that time.
Once the time expires, the opportunity automatically goes to the top 2 offers made. The members will then be informed about the fact that they were rewarded the opportunity and the full details (Contact details) of the creator of the opportunity should be mailed to them.
The Creator should also receive an email informing him about the results and that thei will be in contact with him shortly. the creator will also receive links to the portfolios of the 2 winning members.
During the bidding period the creator will be able to view his offer that is online and see who is currently making offers and click on their names to view their profiles.
Neither the creator's or the member's contact info will be visible during the bidding stage. only after the offer has been awarded will this information be available to both parties.
a member must be able to search for opportunities within the following criteria :
Job type, Aria, and Suburb only. he can then continue to make offers on opportunities if he is logged in and has credits available.
The following functionality is not necessary at this point but we would like to be able to build this in at a later stage.
We would like a member to be able to sell his opportunities awarded in exchange for credits.
The motivation is to prevent people from disappointing the public because of unforeseeable issues. this way at least the job is not left undone.
We currently have a over 300 members waiting, so it is safe to say the sooner the better.
Even though we do have 2 months. Please do give an estimation of time required.
All artwork will be done by us, so if you need design will be provided in PSDs
