Want to build a community marketplace site, and looking for some tips on what theme might help get the job done.
Simply put, would like a freelancer type marketplace, where the payments are not only real money, but can also, or only represent the value created.
So when You finish a project for me, you get the 50$ but only in form of “societal value” rather than actual payment ( i.e some form of paper payment, without actual payment flows). So when project is completed the value/ payment just gets added to your profile, without actual paypal/ other flow needing to happen
This way users can still show up as having worked for 15 000$ total value etc.
(Potentially the market place will later progress to allowing paid-for jobs…) great
Ideally multiple candidates should be allowed to bid, and more than one could be chosen for job.
Looked at Hirebee, and func seems to be there, except( as far as I can see),
- cannot make the payments happen( as far as I know).
- cannot select multiple “freelancers” for job, must post multiple listings?
- a little heavy on the back and forth interaction, before project starts.
So wish list
-marketplace ( post items/ projects) for sale or as to-do
-users with profiles, categories, reviews, and some sort of “wallet” feature
-bidding for projects/ items
-ability to sell/ award to multiple users
-interaction after awarding item/ project
-review of users
-payments that can be manually completed
- the sleeker and faster the interface for interacting the better.
Perhaps something similar could be realised with e-bay type marketplace, by turning model around. but allowing seller to sell multiple items( allow multiple people to participate in project)
would love to have access to “total sold value” and “total value purchased” if possible.
which would then give the same result as above.
Do you know a theme that is close, or does all or most of the stuff needed?
Appreciate any help and suggestions ,thanks in advance
