    I am looking for a Web/Database developer with experience designing and programming Order and Delivery systems. Applicant should understand the business requirements of such a system, in addition to the technical ones. This will be a contract position for Gorilla Tactics, LLC, who are currently developing Kung Fu Kingdom.

    The job includes
    1) Setting up a Order system so that customers can order our company's products from our website, pay through systems such as PayPal, Amazon, and Google Checkout, and then once payment confirmation is received, redirected to a product download site.

    2) Setting up a product delivery system that provides download access to customers who have purchased the game.

    This system must be robust enough that we can track the customer from registration and sale through downloading. Again: we must have a solid digital paper trail from time of purchase through and after product download.

    The website is currently hosted on GoogleAppEngine, but I am willing to change platforms and technologies as necessary in order to get a cost effective, scalable system.

    I'm curious why you don't use BMTMicro? They handle payments, you upload the file to them and they handle downloads, they give you a control panel to track sales, customer relations are great and you get a decent affiliate system if you care to use it (I get more sales through my affiliate channel than come directly from my website).

    Because while it costs more up front to create your own personal system, the margins are better.

    BMTMicro charges 9.5% per transaction. Since they have a $1.25 minimum, if you sell for under around $15, its more.

    Paypal charges
    US Domestic: 2.9% + 0.30 per transaction.
    Foreign: 6.4% (assuming foreign purchase and currency conversion).

    Paypal's percentage also shrinks the higher your volume of sales.

    Until you are making serious $ I wouldn't worry about it.
