We are looking to have a site developed, similar to Liquidation.com to allow sellers to post items for purchase. In most cases these items will be used or refurbished. We do not need the "auction" portion, but rather a direct sales model. While we plan on using this platform for surplus and refurbished items, we want it built in a way that we can also use it for other applications, ie. Agencies and Applicants... or in some sense, similar to Upwork or eLance.
Sellers create an account, sign in and can post their products using "user definable" fields and in this case we'd use fields like Asset name, Asset condition, Detailed description, Photos and videos, age, orig price and asking price, location , and availability.
Buyers can create an account, ask sell questions, make an offer, and/or purchase the asset. These negotiations would be tracked in a message center between buyer and seller.
We'd like an area for buyer and seller comments.
For the eCommerce part, we'd like the option to charge for the listing, and we can be the middle man for the buyer and seller taking a portion of the sale for our service.
There can be various upcharges for product placement, additional photos, videos etc. The site will also have adsense type of affiliate advertising incorporated into the design. We'd either use Affiliate.net or Paypal or similar type of payment model.
We are on a restricted budget but have many projects in the pipeline. We are looking for fast page loads, and be extremely easy to use for both buyer and seller. Typical social media integration and google analytics will be used.The site to be responsive so that it runs on all devices.
We are looking for consultants who specifically have worked with this type of project and are looking to develop this project in a way that it can easily be used for other web properties that we own, where we are looking to unite buyer and seller.
We own a laundry list of domain names and just started to build some of them s we are looking for a partner, consultant or company for the long haul. if you work with us on the price, the money will come in time. The more experience you have, the better and mobile development is always a plus.
