Please visit the following site as a reference:


As you can see from this website, the revenue is generated from eBay sales, using the eBay API.  At present, the search API is pretty sloppy, and somewhat non-specific. I need the search parameters to be tightened, and I need the resulting eBay items to be displayed using javascript, instead of displaying them using PHP, as they are (displaying via PHP causes delays in page loading if the ads take a while to show up).

I don't really care whether queries to eBay are generated via SOAP or REST (or anything else for that matter).  I need a few functions to be written which can take some input and generate links to relevant products on eBay.  This list includes, but is not limited to:

- which eBay program (.com, .ca, .uk, etc)
- number of ads requested
- category number
- search string
- price range
- time delay (ie.  don't show ads ending in the next 2 minutes)
- 'auction' or 'buy it now' or both
- specific seller
- order by type (ending soonest, lowest price, etc)

I would like to create several related functions, so that I can get the right ads from the right program, and display them in different formats on the website (ie.  columns of ads or rows of ads, with timer, without timer, with image, without image, with number of bids, without number of bids, etc).

More details available upon request.
