We are building a marketplace for used items very similar to www.kijiji.ca/ and craigslist.org
The users must be able to post their advertisements along with multiple pictures. Any advertisement should remain active for 30 days. After 30 days it should automatically stop appearing in the search results.
Customers should be able to search items by any keyword within the product description or title. The search results must be shown on a map with different items displayed by their locations.
There needs to be an option to show sponsored ads on the top and the actual results after that.
We will later add the cost of transferring the item from sellers place location to the buyers place.
The items can be of multiple categories like Car, Cycle, Book, Furniture, Home Appliance etc. This list can grow. Buyers should be able to browse through the categories by his current location within certain radius.
As we are more from business background, we will be dependent on you for the technology related decisions. You can use any modern web development technology like Django, ROR or any other framework/language.
The product should work in English and Spanish both.
Cost of servers will be borne by us.
We are open for more ideas from you even on business front as well.
Applications with a detailed proposal of cost, estimated time of delivery and quality checks, will be preferred.
PS: We need to close this latest by Oct 20-25 so please send your proposals before that.
