I am building a one page Ruby On Rails application that allows users to buy postage. I can't find anywhere online that you can just buy a shipping label without signing up for a monthly account. This has been a personal project of mine for the last two years. I have been working on and off and would finish it myself but I just don't have the time.
I have a git and heroku repository set-up and I have done about a third of the work so far. Designs are complete (see attached images). The CSS and HAML are compete and I started working on the backend.
Here is a little more information about the application: I am only going to focus on USPS postage for both domestic and international shipments in version one. I want it to be easy to add more services/carriers. Since SnailIt is a one page web-based user interface to purchase postage, there are a lot of Ajax calls.
I want people to be able to jump right into the label generating process. After they enter the package information in the site they click "Add to Parcel Bag" button, then a modal will pop up with rates – the user picks a rate and postage is added to the bag. Once they buy the postage (through stripe), it goes to their history where they can ask for refund etc. The designs make all the necessary functions self-explanatory.
Postage will be emailed to the user (PDF version -- you can request that from the EasyPost API which makes it easy) after the purchase. When logged in there are two windows (modals) -- history and account. Those pages are self-explainable when you look at them (I've done most of the backend work for the history page).
There are also errors that come from the EasyPost API that need to be passed to the user. There is a error model already designed.
I am using the EasyPost API for the backend label creation and Stripe API for payments. I am also using Devise for logins and authentication.
I am looking for flat rate quotes for the project. I would like to get it done within a reasonable time.
Requirements: I need a Ruby on Rails programmer with git experience. The application needs integration and unit tests with rspec. Experience with the devise plugin for rails is a plus. I need a developer who is proficient in English.
Send me any questions you might have.
