I would like to make a website similar in functionality to ConstantContent dot com, or iWriter, or a similar freelance site.
Main Functions Required:
Users can sign up either as a contractor or a client and create a profile.
The contractor uploads a digital product to the site, fills out a form with some details about their product, the product goes through an editorial review on the back end, it gets added to the database of available products for purchase, and the contractor automatically gets paid a commission when a client purchases their product.
Customers can preview the product before purchasing (with a graphic snapshot representing some of the text in the product, for instance).
Naturally, there's a mess of pages that would need to be included such as article topics for written content, and clients could select a category type and browse through the product previews for that category.
Clients can add special requests for items which are then broadcast to the community of contractors.
Hope I haven't forgotten anything huge; I've tried to be as clear as possible but I'm not a developer.
Is this possible to do with Drupal for someone who doesn't know code? Also, if you could recommend any plugins (modules? sorry, prior WP user) to achieve this, or just point me in the right direction generally, I would be much obliged. I was hoping not to hire a developer if there's any way I could figure out how to do it myself.
Thank you so much!
