OpenX bidding module

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Question:

Currently, we’re looking for this module for our website. By the way I’m the OpenX Admin of my client’s advertising site. My client would have been interested in buying this product if it’ll satisfy our needs and requirements.

These are the following requirements we’ve talk about the Bidding Software which I hope can help you figure things out about the Bidding Software that my Boss wanted to buy.

The software will enable a Bidding Process where in the advertisers can place bids.

The publisher’s can choose whether to accept or decline the advertiser’s bid/s. We need to be able to keep the publishers identity hidden.

The advertisers can change their account information and see how much money they have spent/ earned.

The advertisers can search for available and space through this system and read a little paragraph about the publishers to help them choose if they like the publisher and the ad space available they can place a bid for that ad zone.

Please discuss the step by step process and requirements or everything that deals with this product. We would be interested to buy if the product will satisfy our needs at a reasonable price.

Also, I searched through OpenX Mods Website

about some of your plugins for sale. We are also interested for this product, mainly
Advertiser and Publisher registration module with all permissions, Billing System Integration with authorize.net or Billing System Integration with paypal

Could it be possible that this functionality are available also in the Bidding Software? I mean all this products were packaged into one Bidding Software?

Also please answer the following questions from my Client whose interested in buying your products..

Advertiser and Publisher registration module with all permissions:

- Is the price per month? or is it a fee we pay only once?
- What kind of access and control do we have in this system?
- Can we add and delete advertisers and publishers?
- Can we block publishers?
- Is our approval required before they can register or become available to each other?
- Can we edit any of their settings/ wordings?
- Is there a limit to how many advertisers and publishers we can have in the system?
- Would this offer geo targeting too?

Billing System Integration with authorize.net :

Can we set a limit as to how many impressions can be bought based on how many impressions the website receives per month?

Software System for Bidding Process
For you other suggestion regarding the bidding software, how would the ads be served? Would we have to do this ourselves or does this system do it?

Hoping to hear from you soon. I’ll wait for your reply. Thank you very much!
