There are two connected websites here which are partially complete. It is for a Party Events Promotion. One website/event, Detention Parties, is aimed at teenagers between 13 and 18 years old. the second website, Common Room Parties, is aimed at young adults aged between 18 and 21. These events take place at four venues across London primarily (North, South, East, West) with Occasional Central London Special Events. The company is a start up, and has not launched yet, but the website must be completed soon as I needs it to be launched and online for at least 4-12 weeks before the company launches its first party event date. We anticipate that we will be selling up to 2000 tickets per week with (20%-50% being online) in 3 months of our first event launch date.

First major task-


The most major task here is the completion of the shopping cart/order process. The process is going to be different for each website.

- For Detention, The order process involves a user simply logging in and us taking payment from the user for the price of the tickets (£10 - £100) we allow anybody to log on using any details. For the Detention site, we will only Sell online tickets to verified users. During the login process. Any Internet Merchant account that allows DOB verification, as the Payer must be verified as over 18.

Users MUST be LOGGED IN, AND ALSO HAVE THEIR ACCOUNT MANUALLY VERIFIED, to be able to buy tickets online. We are selling party tickets to teenagers under 18 and are very strong on providing security to our partygoers AND their parents by being able to verify all attendees. For this, we will obviously need to add a login feature to the website. The login process involves asking more questions than just name and address. We will need to know the school they attend AND the parent whose permission they have to be buying these tickets. We will only fulfil orders for tickets from user account who have a parent we have VERIFIED can be responsoble for the identification of all tickets they purchase. We call the parent and do house visits sometimes just to check. this means that an adult (PARENT/GUARDIAN) of the child must also have their details logged into the system, given the option to do this when the account is registered, or when the ticket purchase is to be made. Ideally I would like some kind of 3d Secure / DOB bank check / Full name Verification etc from the bank So we can be more sure of the identification of the payer/adult. We do not accept prepaid cards for these purchases.

- For Common Room, The order process will a user simply logging in and us taking payment from the user for the price of the tickets (£10 - £100) we allow anybody to log on using any details. For the Detention site, we will only Sell online tickets to verified users. During the login process. Any Internet Merchant account that allows 3d Secure would be excellent to stop chargebacks.

Users MUST be LOGGED IN, to be able to buy tickets online. we want everybody on this list added to our e-mailing list. We also have offers for anybody who adds us to their facebook and myspace and bebo accounts, it would be good if we could inlcude this somehow in the registration process. For this, we will obviously need to add a login feature to the website. As all of the customers buying tickets here are over 18 the extra security and identity verification procedures employed above are not necessary. We will post out tickets. The cut-off time for posting out tickets is 72 hours before the event starts, as it needs time to arrive... We will only send tickets to the registered billing address of the purchasing card, and the purchasing card must be presented upon entry. We do not accept prepaid cards for these purchases.



- Anybody, should be able to buy our merchandise. This means people who are not VERIFIED manually can still buy our merchandise.

- Even though we sell tickets, the fact that each ticket sold is assigned to a particular person, their fairly low value, and the fact that tickets reported stolen or paid for fraudulently will not be able to pass through the door, we do not think card fraud will be too big an issue here. It would be good to know an experts view on this matter.

Notes To Service Provider:


I own 4 companies, one of which is an IT company. My companies are expanding so I will have lots of work on the maintenance of these sites, and outsource work from my IT firm as I am unlikely to have the time to fulfil any more programming requests.

I am a PHP (and some .NET) developer, so I know the issues you may come across during the work, and have knowledge of delegating tasks, so If any component of the job is an issue I can help...

I need to find skilled, honest, hardworking providers who can build long term outsourcing relationship. I am happy to work with anyone anywhere, but we must be able to communicate.

I can pay any way needed, but not before seeing what I am paying for. After the first few work, this wont be needed...

Unfortunately your work will not get you any linkbacks to your own site or anything like that. As a subcontractor of GC, we own the work and it is our product, our copyright, our intellectual property. Good Service providers may negotiate a link on the GC Site Only, not on sites produced by GC
