Coding experience with MySQL and PHP is ideal. The time frame is two weeks.
Here's some help: Open Source Bitcoin Marketplace Software http://bit-wasp.org https://github.com/Bit-Wasp/BitWasp
Something similar to how Silk Road and Alpha Bay are designed.
There should be a possibility for a user to register either as a vendor (sellers account), or a buyer (normal account). A vendor should be able to upload pictures and info to his items.
There should be an Escrow functionality. The site should get an adjustable percentage of the finished deals.
There should be an admin panel for maintenance, resolving disputes and support.
There should be a Bitcoin handling mechanism. It is recommended to run Bitcoind as client only to connect to blockchain.info. No blockchain download, no local wallet.
The site should be focused on speed, i.e. no big graphics, no CPU intensive computations, no java or java script.
The suggested architecture is a LAMP-stack, but other sort of arrangement could be possible as long it runs under Linux.
The forum part will be a ready made forum script and not required to be coded.
There should be three types of access permissions
Administrator: Access to every part of the site.
Support: Access to read and reply to support tickets. Resolving disputes, only access to funds placed in escrow.
User: Access to own account only
There should be no captcha on the site. A user should instead be UNIX-like blocked from access after 5 failed login tries for 20 min.
All EXIF data should be removed from JPG's when uploaded to the site.
