NOTE: No more bids are accepted! Sorry. To all those who have bid, thank you. We will be making a final decision in the next 3 days.

UPDATE: We are still going through the information we received and doing our own research. We'll post the winning bid on Monday.

By the way, it seems there are many great coders bidding! To those who have made it into the last selection round, there are many more projects in the future - some bigger, some smaller. Don't be disappointed if you are not chosen. It's a rather difficult task and we need to rely on very little information and a lot of gut!

Thanks again to all of you for your time.


Please see attached GIFs and visit for a better understanding.

We operate a small dynamic ecommerce site written in ASP, which accesses data from an Access 2000 database. The original code was modified by our Web designer who now has trouble implementing additional features.

We use an Administration area to Add/Modify/Update products, view orders, view/edit customer and reseller lists, etc...

We would like to add a discount feature to allow us to create various "Promo Codes" which calculate a discount as either a pre-determined dollar value, free freight on orders above $XX.XX, percentage discount & quantity discount (6 or more price) on any individual item or entire order.

Whatever Promo Codes we create would be entered by a visitor on the "Payment Method" screen and subsequently shown as a "discount" field on the Submit Order and Thank You page as well as in the Order Confirmation email sent after a visitor places an order.

I have uploaded more information (html and Word doc) to the directory below. Please use this along with the attached GIFs make your bid.

I'm not a programmer so I would like to define what constitutes this "deliverable" together with the coder.

Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

Complete copyrights to all work purchased.

Site hosted on Windows NT 4.0 at

Code needs to run in all IE and Netscape 4.0 or greater

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:

Jun 7, 2002 EDT
Deadline legal notes: All times are expressed in the time zone of the site EDT (UT - 5). If the buyer omitted a time, then the deadline is 11:59:59 PM EDT on the indicated date.

Additional Files:
This bid request includes IMPORTANT additional attached files. Please download and read fully before bidding.

Remember that contacting the other party outside of the site (by email, phone, etc.) on all business projects < $500 (before the buyer's money is escrowed) is a violation of both the software buyer and seller agreements. We monitor all site activity for such violations and can instantly expel transgressers on the spot, so we thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you notice a violation please help out the site and report it. Thanks for your help.
All monetary amounts on the site are in United States dollars.
