I am in processes of creating an Off-line dating experience which would require registration for specific dates and times. Because this operation would initially be run by 1 or 2 people, taking on and manually imputing reservations would not be the most cost effective approach, additionally, having customers be able to see and register for times and dates several months in advance would attract more people.
Taking the above into consideration, the technical aspect of the website should be able to display a calendar with available slots depending of whether the male or female gender is selected.
For example - Lets say that out of 20 people so far 10 males and 7 females are attending an event this Saturday at 5PM. If I were to select the "Male" gender option at the previous screen, I would not see any available dates for this Saturday as the maximum number of male attendees has been reached, but I would be able to see the available open spots for next Saturday. If, on the other hand, I were to select the female option at the previous screen, I would see that 3 spots are still available for this Saturday and register for it. This would be a part of the checkout - so after selecting the date I would be able to pay for the event and be provided a confirmation number. I would also like to provide my customers the ability to cancel or refund the purchase (reflective of a refund policy) based on the order number and some personal details like name and birthdate - This would further automate the process.
Before deciding to actually sit down at your office face to face,I would love to see a rough estimate and the number of proposed hours associated with that estimate - as well as lead time options. For example - what would the cost be to build this website over a 3 month period vs. a one month period.
Email or text is the ideal way to reach me, however, I would be more than happy to answer any questions that would help create that rough estimate, over the phone anytime after 5PM.
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
