A few important points for you to read before you bid please:
This work is for a UK site. There are several questions at the bottom of the project description. Please answer them in UK English, not US English.
1, BIDDERS' LOCATION
1a. I would prefer a bidder from within the European Union, but will consider strong candidates from elsewhere.
1b. I cannot accept bids from any country where the UK government has a trade embargo in place.
1c. Because of site content I will not accept or consider any bid from any predominantly Islamic country.
1d. Because of current and planned US legislation I cannot accept bids from the USA or US dependent territories.
2. BID CONTENT
2a. I ignore generic bids. I can spot them a mile off.
2b. I ignore "Let's do it", "Hi pick me" and similar bids - please do not insult me.
2c. I DO NOT WANT A LONG LIST OF WEBSITES YOU HAVE WRITTEN. THAT IS OF ABSOLUTELY NO INTEREST TO ME WHATSOEVER.
2d. NO PCB messages.
2e. I report bids breaching site rules.
I have two websites.
The first is written using Menalto's Gallery3 v 0 software. I have not upgraded to v3.2 as I find a couple of features of the later version unsatisfactory.
The site uses Paypal for it's shopping cart. I wish to replace it.
I am planning on installing an alternative payment system and the one I am most likely to use is [url removed, login to view]
I need you to write a new Menalto Gallery3 module to do the following:
a) produce the same functionality as the current Paypal-based shopping cart software, plus ...
b) allow me (as Administrator):
(i) to apply discount voucher codes in "view cart" - see note A below;
(ii) to apply multi-buy discounts in "view cart";
(iii) to apply regular visitor discounts in "view cart";
(iv) to apply shipping rates based on best price for size, weight and destination - see note B below;
(v) to add, amend, block, unblock and delete users manually - see note C below;
(vi) to add, amend, suspend, un-suspend and delete products manually - see note D below;
(vii) to download / upload the inventory as an Excel spreadsheet;
(viii) to download / upload the customer records as an Excel spreadsheet;
c) On checkout pass the order value to the payment gateway to handle credit card processing;
d) On successful payment notify me by screen pop-up and warning tone (a bit like Skype on the corner of the screen) and by email of the full order details;
e) On payment failure, notify me by email and flag the client record.
I will provide you with the current version Menalto / Gallery3 / Paypal module for you to modify.
A. Discount voucher codes
Discount voucher codes will identify the client (where he is returning with a discount code) or the referrer (where the referee is using a discount code). Each client's identity must be recorded against the other client to track performance.
B. Shipping rates
I use Royal Mail ([url removed, login to view]). Most paper items are packed in a C3 or C4 board back envelope. Block board mounted fine art prints are packed in a padded cardboard box. I will provide all weights, measurements and destinations in an Excel table to the successful bidder.
C. User records
I will supply all user record fields in an Excel spreadsheet to the successful bidder. IP address capture and validation against shipping address is required.
D. Product records
I will provide all product record fields in an Excel spreadsheet. Suffice to say if you are familiar with Amazon's shopping fields, these will be a subset.
Finally the second website, (a simple subscriber adult TGP site), currently uses Soholaunch with the Verotel payment gateway and I wish to move it to Menalto Gallery v3.0 with the new payment gateway.
In your PM to me please provide me with THREE, (NOT 2, NOT4, NOT 100), just THREE websites on which you have worked with a shopping basked / payment gateway integration. That's THREE and only THREE!
Answer this question please: which carrier do I use?
