I have several self-coded websites that have outgrown their current code, structure and functions. The code and design needs re-developing and all sites need to be brought together to function as a single network.
My websites act as marketplaces, where creators sell video downloads to fans. Much of the content is classed as "adult". Please be comfortable working with nude images. I will provide links via direct message.
I can provide a more detailed specification upon request, but a few major points to note:
**Connect all of my sites** Currently, each individual site I have runs on a separate database, with a lot of duplicated structures. After re-development, all websites should communicate with each other (perhaps run from a single database). So, for example, all product data is stored in a single table, regardless of which site they are available for sale on.
**Introduce a credits-based wallet system** Currently, each transaction on my sites relates to a single video download (there’s no shopping cart). After re-development, users should be able to add “credits” to their wallet. These "credits" can then be used to purchase multiple videos from a shopping cart, or used to “donate” to sellers. I already have payment providers in place, but the new credits/wallet system will be in-house and work across all sites.
**Single dashboard/content management system** Currently, each site has a separate dashboard and no centralised reports. After re-development, there should be a single dashboard for administrators and sellers to add content, monitor sales, etc. Admins will be able to see stats of all sites and all users. Sellers will be able to see their own stats.
**Use existing data** These are existing sites with a lot of content and many users. The re-developed sites must be able to use all the existing data (e.g. user passwords, product details, etc.) without the need for re-entry.
As a reference point, what I'm looking to create is similar in functionality to the Envato marketplace (ThemeForrest, CodeCanyon etc). I have many sellers and many buyers and they are connected through my sites. Please note - this similarity to Envato relates only to the functionality (e.g. acting as a market place to sell digital downloads) and not to the content.
Knowledge of AWS S3 and CloudFront would be useful too, as this is how I currently host the videos.
Initially I'm looking for the re-development of my sites. If the work is of a high standard, I will look to expand to a longer-term on-going relationship to help maintain the websites.
Please ask me any questions about the project.
