The website will have an elegant design for the Irish and UK Market.
The successful company will design and implement the website end to end. The website will operate on a bv commerce or similar CMS system and have a 2.0 design
The website will operate as follows:
Couples getting married or engaged can place their interest on the website to recieve bids for any item or service they require for the wedding or engagement. On the front end customers can see what the highest bid and lowest bid is that is placed and the time left in the auction but not what company has placed the bid unless the company has gone public. The couple requiring the service can see who has placed the bids and what they are charging for the item or services in their account as the company would have placed their bid and information around their company (just like odesk)
couples when placing an auction will be asked to select an industry from a drop down menu and place information required for the supplier of that industry to bid on the service (example Church music - start time - fimish time - venue - address - start time - finish time - special requests which will email subscribed companies to that industry details of the auction and ask them to bid.
Companies can create an account for free. from there they can decide to pay per bid, buy a pack of bids or buy bids and advertising space or buy just advertising space. the company can decide if they want their company to appear as a bidder for the service or hide who they are to the general public/browsers of the website. The company will have a paypal account setup to receive deposits to secure the bookings. the company will make it clear when bidding the deposit required and payment required in full on the day. we will charge a set fee for the collection and payment of the deposit from the customer to the company the customer will be charged this fee along with the deposit.
Companies can advertise their business on the website and sign up for a monthly or annual package the different packages offering the company a number of bids and advertising space.
Companies will also have their own accounts allowing them to manage the services the require and how their ads appear on the website.
