New company in need of an e-commerce consignment website. This isn't a simple site that can be created using something like WooCommerce.
In an ordinary e-commerce site, you have only a few vendors that supply you merchandise. For example, let's say you sell sneakers. You have a 5 vendors that provide you Nike, Reebok, Adidas, etc. When you sell 3 pairs of Nikes, your system alerts you to pay the vendor and order more. This is supported by most out of the box e-commerce software.
With a consignment website, EVERY user can be a vendor. So we need to have a database that can alert a user when their item was sold, deduct a portion of the sale, and send them the money. Now multiply this by 10s of thousands of users/sellers. This is not something that comes out of the box from Magento.
We are looking for a development team that has a strong background in e-commerce and can show us good examples of LARGE and well known e-commerce sites they have done. I also want to hear on how you would create this site, either using out of the box software like Magento plus 3rd party software/custom code, or create an entire site in custom code.
Note: I have posted this job before months ago, but got burned by the developer, finding out all his portfolio wasn't even his work. Before I accept a bid, I will require contacts of companies you have worked with for recommendations.

Questions: 1. Is it a marketplace website, something like Amazon, eBay? 2. How about a custom ecommerce website rather than using a readymade software?
