I'm looking for a coder to build a site for the purposes of selling a few items.
* Payment will be in bitcoin only.
* The system should know when payment has been made.
* The fulfillment doesn't need to be automated, just a daily report (with the ability to mark fulfilled items).
*  You can use either myBitcoin.com or a server-based solution.
* PHP preferred, though my server situation can accommodate most other platforms?

I'm looking for bids on the project. Hourly rates are fine as long as estimate on total project length is included. I'm not made of money, but I'm not looking to squeeze anyone, either. All fair bids considered.

Do you not want to use one of the existing systems?

I'm open to someone coming in and implementing an existing system, not looking for a ground up re-invention of the wheel, necessarily. I don't really have time to do more than project manage an implementation (demanding day job), so I hoped to support the community a bit by going with a BTC friendly developer.

Fair enough. But if you don't have time to even be familiar with your options, are you sure you'll have time to sell things online?

1) I expect whomever I work with to be familiar with the options out there. While I have the chops to code, I'm not on the ground coding on a daily basis. I'm hiring someone else to help me because I recognize that I'm not the best person for the job. Henceforth, I am attempting to hiring someone familiar enough with the options and the methods to help me make those calls. If I had time, I'd just write it myself.

2) I really don't see the connection between not having time to code and not having time to sell something online. You don't have any visibility into what it is I'm planning other than the broad strokes of what I want the project to include, so I'm not sure why this is even a question.

3) Are you offering your services as a coder, or are you just griefing me?

I'm trying my best not to come off like an ass here, I'm just looking to hire a coder and figured there might be one or two hanging around here that were interested in earning some BTC.

If you already have the shopping stuff itself set up, I could fix up some payments for you Cheesy
Feel free to PM me..
But don't think you'll get any "Fancy Shmancy Portfolio", as this is my first "Commercial" product...

I'm looking for the full deal, needs the shopping cart system as well. I'm talking maybe only a few products.

Hmm, that might take a little longer, but I can do it.. Although it won't have any fancy graphics and stuff.. A table listing for items, and MAYBE the ability to buy more items.. That's harder though.
But meh, I have nothing to do so I'll begin prototyping

That's fine - no fancy graphics needed. Going to have one of my graphics guys do the images and branding for it.

Sorry, but I can't tell the difference between "not well thought out" and "details intentionally omitted" without asking. Unfortunately 95% of what I see posted around here is in the former category. As a rule I try to avoid "not well thought out" projects; if you've ever written code for someone else, you will certainly realize why.

And yes, as a coder I'm very picky as to what projects I'll take on.

I assure you, it's fairly well thought out (or at least as well thought out as it can be having spent a week of evenings investigating product and fulfillment and making sure once it's theoretically in place I don't lose my shirt), and if the project turns out to be a rabbit hole, well, I'm assuming the risk by commissioning it.

The one aspect I didn't fully investigate (and figured I'd be safe putting in a developer from the community's hands) is the shopping cart side of it. Shopping carts are fairly common on the internet, to say the least, and there are several options I've passingly seen for BTC centric sites.

I can see why you may perceive it as an ill-thought out plan, but from my perspective, I figured it'd just be more expedient to outsource my research and development than to do it myself.

OK, that sounds much more reasonable. Smiley

Unfortunately I don't have time for this right now, though I'm quite sure you'll find someone around here who will be able to help you now that it's clear what you need.

If you're interested, I will be open sourcing Coin Cart, the software that powers Bitcoin Bodega, sometime this week, through the Github account of Geekworks LLC.
