I currently use BidOrBuy, a South African auction site, to sell a number of items, specifically; rare stamps, bank notes, and other collectibles.
The actual manual downloading and posting of the pics on the auction site, up to a maximum of 13 pics per item, is now becoming too time consuming and onerous.
To alleviate this burdensome task the auction site has a bulk download facility that can be used. The bulk load facility reads a csv file and does all the posting for the auction. To automate the creation of the csv file as much as possible, I have written an Excel VBA module to do all the boilerplate stuff, with a minimal amount of input, apart from the scanning of the items, and the item description. The item description is imbedded in some HTML, and the pics themselves should be accessed via a URL in the HTML, with the pics residing on the server.
This is where I am having a problem and in need of some help. What I require from a developer is, initially, a very basic website, with a catalogue facility, that I can download all my pics to. BidOrBuy will then use the URL’s, of the pics on the server, to display them on the auction.
To facilitate the hosting of my pics I have obtained a domain name thru Bluehost and paid an annual hosting fee. Bluehost is where I would like to setup the webpage and add all the pics to a catalog. I need to be able to access the pics with URL’s, I would need some advice on that. And that’s it!
Later we can think about further development.
Please give me a quote on the above. If you need any further information, please let me know.
I have no idea how much work is required for this initial project, but we are on a limited budget.
I did see a theme which I quite liked in Wordpress and maybe you can use that.
