question

A client emailed me today and asked the following:

.I’d love to have a website very similar to Ebay but its all craft stuff. Auctions for craft stuff. I’d allow people to create accounts and post their own items just like ebay, they would pay a listing fee as well as a percentage of what it sells for.
Is this possible?

So, I ask is this possible w freeway? or how?

Thanks

Julie

Well, there is already this site called Etsy, which is all craft stuff for sale at retail, not auction. As with many other types of site, yes, you can design the layout with Freeway, there’s just a lot of programming and database wizardry needed to get the rest of it to work. Freeway can only help you with the look of the thing.

Hi Julie,
Have a trawl through the auction scripts at HotScripts (PHP Auctions Scripts - eBay Scripts, Swoopo Scripts - Free, commercial and open source scripts) as there could be something in there that you can easily re-skin with your own design.
Personally I would consider keeping this on eBay or Etsy as you’ll get a lot more traffic than doing this yourself on your own domain. It maybe worth seeing if any of those HotScripts solutions use the eBay API so the auctions show up both on the main eBay site as well as (re-skinned) on your own domain.
Regards,
Tim.
