This is a DRAFT (not the final version) of a PRD I did while working at Jewelry Television (JTV). Serving as a E-commerce Product Manager was part of my job at JTV, and I wrote many of these PRDs and BRDs (Business Requirements Documents), of varying lengths and complexity. This one, though not complete, is fairly detailed.

    • 1 1.1 Introduction Purpose The purpose of this document is to define the Business Requirements (the “vision”) for the JTV auction platform on www.jtvauctions.com. Components of the platform covered include the consumer-facing auction site, auction management functions, and reporting (site metrics, merchandising / inventory, and sales). It is intended to be a flexible, “living document”, and will change and expand throughout the development of the platform, as work is completed in multiple sprints and releases. For now, its primary purpose is to identify the platform’s high-level features and minimum functional requirements. 1.2 Background and Goals JTV recognizes the value of its auction business and the potential opportunities that a world-class auction platform can provide. Consequently, JTV has set the following near and long-term strategic and tactical objectives. Our goal is to build the best business-to-consumer auction site on Earth. One significant reason we need a new auction site is that our current site compares poorly to Bidz.com and others. In order for us to take market share away from Bidz.com, we need an auction platform that offers advantages to our customers that Bidz.com does not. The platform as outlined in this BRD will do that. 1.3 Near-term Objectives The near-term objectives include:   Easily navigable by new users, with strong drill-down capabilities.  Integrates into existing systems and tools (Order Pipeline, Omniture, Microstrategy, Jupiter, WMS, etc).  Has powerful, but easy-to-use, administrative and scheduling tools.  Is cosmetically attractive, but designed with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) in mind.  Ability to scale to and handle large numbers of auctions per day (in the thousands).  1.4 A stable site with maximum uptime, eliminating many existing issues. Has a wide variety of features that customers have asked for, including (but not limited to) alternative payment methods, comprehensive bidding histories, watch lists, dynamically updated bidding and timing data, complete product detail information, and more. Long-term Strategic Objectives  International auction capabilities.  The longer-term objective is to have an auction platform which can share multiple sources of inventory (from multiple retailers, not a consumer-to-consumer model) among multiple, separatelybranded auction sites or storefronts. For example, Zales, ICE.com, and JTV could all supply jewelry to the same site. See the Future Enhancements section for details. PAGE 8 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 2 Gap Analysis / Site Comparison: Bidz.com vs. JTVauctions.com (v. 3) PAGE 9 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 3 Listing of Major Requirements (Phase 1) The following are the absolute minimum requirements for site launch. This list is a summary of the major requirements – it is not a complete list of all requirements.  PayPal payment integration.  Amazon Payments integration.  Endeca navigation / search integration.  Color Scheme / Brand: The site should use a different style guide than JTV.com.  URL: www.jtvauctions.com and www.jtv-auctions.com (jtv-auctions will redirect to jtvauctions).  A staging site IS required.  A simple Content Management System is required.  Browser compatibility: same as www.jtv.com.  Screen resolution: same as www.jtv.com.  “SmartBid” capability (aka, proxy bidding or max bidding).  Overtime bidding (“Bid Extend”) must be available and administratively configurable.  Administrative controls must have the ability to set opening bid prices according to cost, either by percentage of cost or by setting straight dollar amounts.  Free Shipping Flag capability, configurable by the “Auctioneer”.  Aggregated orders: items won by a single bidder on the same day will be shipped together.  Consistent global site header & footer.  Home page - Designed in accordance with SEO best practices.  Category pages with image rollovers & mini-details pages, dynamic countdown clocks, list view option, - Designed in accordance with SEO best practices.  Product Details pages (Bidding pages), with detailed product information & dynamic countdown clock.  Sign in page.  Registration page.  My Account page & My Account Edit pages.  My Current Bids page.  My Watch List page.  The My Bid History page. (Includes sections for items won and items lost).  Recently-Ended Auctions Page.  Privacy Policy page.  Terms of Use page.  Help & FAQ page - Designed in accordance with SEO best practices.  A variety of automated bidder notification (“transactional”) emails.  The platform must be PCI compliant.

    • 6 6.1 Auction Site Pages Home Page 6.1.1 General Requirements  Global site header & footer.  SEO Plan (Page should be designed in accordance with SEO best practices). Title tags: “JTV Auctions: Jewelry, Colored Gemstones, Diamonds, Online Auctions”.  Endeca navigation section will appear on the left side of the page, in a “semi-expanded” state, below the canned search button stack. See the homepage mockup at the end of section 5.1. Also see the navigation hierarchy at the end of section six.  The site should provide a personalized greeting whenever the user comes back, even before they sign in. 6.1.2 “Canned Search” Button Section  These will be in the upper left-hand corner of the page, immediately below the text bar, in a “stack” of buttons.  Closing Soon button (brings up catalog page of soon-to-close items; it should FIRST display any items in the user's current bid list or watch list. This button will be at the top of the “stack”.  Hot Items button (brings up page of 12 hottest items [i.e. Items with most bids and lowest current gross margin]).  Recently Ended button (brings up separate page for customer reference; it shows items closed within past 24 hours. See 5.17)  Newly Listed Items button should use a cookied solution, and only display items added since the last user sign-in. (If this can't be done, then it should list items that were added within the past 24 hours). Show items in order, newest to oldest.  Lowest Bid button will list all available items, sorted by current bid, lowest to highest.  Upcoming Items button (brings up list/page of scheduled but not yet available items). 6.1.3 Today’s Top Auctions Product Module Section  A horizontal row of current jewelry auctions will appear at the top of the page, just below the promotional text bar. It will consist of four (4) “product modules”. Each product module is an AJAX module that enables real-time updates and live bidding on the item. Each product module includes a thumbnail image, a short product description, the current price, and a bid button. The short description field from the SKU Creation application will be used (The “On-Air Description”). [100 characters maximum]  The horizontal row of product modules will appear directly below a “Headline” (using <H1> tags, for SEO) that will say, “Today’s Top Jewelry Auctions”. When clicked on, it will have the same on-click action as the “Hot Items” button.  Directly below the jewelry headline and product module section, there will be a duplicate section for loose gemstone product. The headline/title will be “Today’s Top Gemstone Auctions”. PAGE 16 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    •  The platform will execute an algorithm which will populate these eight (8) product modules. It will function essentially as follows: 1. It will evaluate all current Jewelry auctions in order to populate the four (4) product modules, and separately evaluate all current gemstone auctions in order to populate the four (4) gemstone product modules. 2. The first criterion will limit eligible items to those that will close within the next hour. Once an item is chosen to populate a product module, it will remain in that position until the auction closes. 3. The second criterion will be “number of bidders.” Items with zero or one bidders will be excluded from eligibility. It is assumed that there will usually, if not always, be a significant quantity of items with two or more bidders with less than one hour remaining before the auction ends. 4. The algorithm should now rank the eligible items according to currently projected gross margin dollars if the auction were to end “right now,” with the four items having the lowest projected gross margin dollar earnings ranking the highest. 5. These four items will populate the four product modules. 6. In the future, the algorithm might be modified to look at a stored value (possibly in a cookie?) which classifies the user as primarily either a gemstone or a jewelry customer. If the customer can be so identified, the system will serve (for example), eight (8) gemstones in the product modules and zero jewelry items. 6.1.4 Promotional Spots  The home page will host two promotional spots. See the mockup below for visual example.  The top spot will be smaller (shorter), and will be similar in size to the current “Gemstone of the Week promotional banner.  The bottom spot will be larger, and support promotional events such as “Lunchtime Lunacy”.  Content will be populated from the CMA. 6.1.5 Category Links  The homepage will include four (4) boxes (similar to the current JTVauctions site) which contain images and links to:  Jewelry Auctions  Watch Auctions  Gemstone Auctions  “Learn About Auctions”. This box will include a link to the permanent Survey Monkey online survey. The other links will link to the Help & FAQ page 6.1.6 SEO Plan TBD PAGE 17 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 6.1.7 Home Page Mockup PAGE 18 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 6.2 Category “Browse” Pages / Search Result Pages 6.2.1 General Requirements  Global site header & footer.  Navigational bread crumb trail at top of page, similar to Demandware's.  Drill-down capabilities are defined in the navigation section. Endeca navigation section will appear on the left side of the page. On these pages, Endeca will appear in an expanded state. See sections 5.2.6 & 5.2.7 for visuals.  Multiple page templates, depending on the user’s initial click action (gemstones, jewelry, watches, jeweler supplies, and collectibles). Each template will have different title tags and frequently-searched text at the bottom for SEO.  Closed Items. Items that are closed will be removed within 1 minute (or whatever interval, as chosen in the global settings by the "Auctioneer".)  No product will ever be eligible to appear on a product details page, search results, or catalog page if it does not have an available image to display. 6.2.2  Product Modules Product Modules are the “heart and soul” of this page. Each product module, in the catalog page view, will include:      Thumbnail image, short description (from the short description field in the JTV SKU Creation application (the “On-Air Description”), a countdown timer showing the time remaining, the current high bid, and a “QuickBid” button.  The Product Module in the List View is the same, except it also has the “SmartBid” button, and is laid out horizontally.  The countdown timer will show days, hours, minutes, and seconds in D:HH:MM:SS format). This must be in prominent red text.  The QuickBid Button, when clicked, automatically enters a single bid (higher than the current bid, in accordance with the next highest bid as determined by the displayed bid increment). If the user is not signed in, the user will be prompted to sign in, then returned to the catalog page. WE SHOULD TRADEMARK THE QUICKBID BUTTON.  Current High Bid. All items should show the current high bid, dynamically, without the need to refresh the page.  On-Click behavior:  Clicking anywhere within the product module will take the user to the Product Details (bidding) page, with the exception of clicking on the QuickBid button. If the user is not signed in, the user will be presented with a sign-in page, complete the sign-in process, and then the user will be delivered to the Product Details page.  Clicking on the QuickBid button actually places a “QuickBid”, unless the user is not signed in. PAGE 19 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    •  6.2.3 On Mouseover behavior: If the user “mouses over” the item’s thumbnail image, the large size image (533 x 400, from the Product Details page) should appear, along with the Product ID (SKU number). Page Navigation  Upon choosing a top-level category (jewelry, gemstones, jeweler supplies, watches, or collectibles), or one of the “canned search” buttons from the home page (Hot Items, Newly Listed, etc), a category page with appropriate product will be displayed.  A dropdown sort by: list will give the user the following sort options:       Ending Soon (in order, ending soonest, etc) Just Listed (in order, most recent to older) # of Bids (High to Low) # of Bids (Low to High) Current Price (High to Low) Current Price (Low to High)  A “Items Per Page” dropdown list: Default = 40. User options: 40, 80, 120. Will appear at both top and bottom of the page.  A “Go To Page” dropdown list will include as many page numbers as needed. Will appear at both top and bottom of the page.  Previous and Next page links with arrow icons will appear at the top and bottom of the page. 6.2.4 SEO Plan  Page should be designed in accordance with SEO best practices.  There should be multiple page templates, depending on the user’s first click. For example, if the user first clicked on “Gemstones” from the homepage, then the “Gemstones” page template should be served. This page would have different text and title tags than the “Jewelry” page; similarly different from the “Jeweler Supplies” , “Collectibles”, and “Watches” pages.  Title tags for the Jewelry category page: “JTV Online Jewelry Auctions: Rings, Earrings, Necklaces, Bracelets, Pendants, Silver Jewelry, Gold Jewelry”.  Title tags for the Gemstone category page: “JTV Online Gemstone Auctions: Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Tanzanite, Peridot, Garnet, & Topaz Loose Gemstone Auctions”.  Title tags for the Watches category page: “JTV Online Watch Auctions: Men’s Watches, Women’s Watches, Croton, Citizen, Oceanaut Watches”. 6.2.5 Category Page “Views”  The user will have two “Views” to choose from:  A “List View”.  A typical “Catalog View”.  All category page items will include a thumbnail image; both in list view and catalog view.  Content of each page type will be the same, with one exception: the List View will also include “SmartBid” buttons.

    • 6.3 Product Details Pages (Bidding pages) 6.3.1 General Requirements  Global site header & footer.  Navigation breadcrumb trail at top of page.  “Back to List of Auctions” button/link  “Add to My Watch List” button.  “Send to a Friend” button / capability. This would be a button similar to the Add to My Watch List button, and be in close proximity to it. This would generate a mailto: action, and send the item number, auction number, sender name and email address, and page URL to the recipient.  Recently Viewed Items list (a strip of thumbnails & item numbers showing last five items viewed).  NOTE: On this page, the Endeca left nav is deliberately omitted. This is because the customer has, by this point, determined what they want to look it, so the full space is dedicated to the chosen product. This is similar to both Ebay and Overstock.com. The page should include a “Back to List of Auctions” button/link. This will have the same effect as clicking one level back on the breadcrumb trail.  Overtime Bidding: The site must support “Overtime bidding” (“bid extend“ / “popcorn bidding”) functionality, which will be configured by the Auctioneer in the Auction Admin application.  Buy It Now! Functionality. (Phase 2, if necessary)  No product will ever be eligible to appear on a product details page, search results, or catalog page if it does not have an available image to display. 6.3.2 Product Detail Section  Product Title / Short Description (from SKU Creation application)  Product Description / Specifications (from SKU Creation application. 1000 character limitation)  Other Product Details product attribute fields (from SKU Creation application). The labels and fields displayed will depend on the product type (i.e., loose gemstone, ring, necklace, etc). Important product types (Single stone, rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, pendants, watches) will display the particular product fields as shown below in the Product Details by Product Attributes tables. (Section 5.3.6).  No product attribute field label should appear if the value is NULL.  The “Gemstone Treatment” field will always be visible for all gemstone category products, and for any jewelry products that contain a gemstone value. The field label will be linked to the following page on JTV.com: http://learning.jewelrytelevision.com/article/gem-enhancementsand-care.aspx? . The field label will be underlined.  Product Image. (295 x 221 pix - same size as current product image) (clicking or mousing over brings up larger 533 x 400 image)  Ability to show multiple images, if existing. Thumbnails below image area (similar to JTV.com).  Item Product ID (SKU number). PAGE 23 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    •  Auction number. (A unique auction sequence number) PAGE 24 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 6.3.3 Bidding Section  Clearly defined (delineated) from the product details area.  Current winning bid.  Statement: “Overtime Bidding is ON”. (hyperlink to definition popup)  Opening bid.  Bid increment.  Countdown clock – show remaining days:hours:minutes until the auction closes. This must be “live” – i.e., dynamic.  “QuickBid Now” button. This bid would quickly place a single (not a max bid) bid, adding the stated bid increment to the last bid. There will be a question mark icon/link next to the button; users who click on it will be taken to the paragraph on the FAQ page that explains QuickBids.  “SmartBid” field and button. SmartBid provides users with the ability to set a maximum bid amount and have the system bid for them automatically (according to the minimum bid increment) until they win the auction or meet their maximum bid. Need bid confirmation popup. Possible SmartBid amounts are listed in a dropdown list. After placing and confirming their bid, the user will remain on the bidding page. There will be a question mark icon/link next to the button; users who click on it will be taken to the paragraph on the FAQ page that explains SmartBids.  Bid Confirmation Pop-up: When customers bid from this page, a bid confirmation pop-up message will appear, telling the customer that they have just bid “$XX, using a “[type] bid”. For example, “You are bidding $30 for this item using a SmartBid, on a card ending in 6744. Is this correct?” [Yes, Place SmartBid / Cancel buttons]. When this popup appears, the rest of the page will be grayed out and “unclickable”. See the visual representation in section 5.3.5.  Checkbox: There will be a “I want to be notified by email when my bid is exceeded”. “Notified by email” will be hyperlinked. Clicking on this link will result in a popup DIV layer with messaging from the FAQ page explaining to the participant how they can ensure receipt of these emails.  After-Bid Behavior: After the user confirms their bid, they will remain on the product details page.  Before allowing a bid to be placed, the system will check the bidder’s sign-in status. If the bidder has not signed in, the system will take the bidder directly to the sign-in page. If the user has the required minimum information required to bid, the system will return the bidder to the product details page of the item they initially tried to bid on.  Item Bid History. Shows bidder member IDs, bid amounts & times. There will be an indicator telling all users if someone is using “SmartBids”, with a link explaining what that is, and why they should also use it. This section will display the most recent bids on top (show a maximum of 25 bids.)  In the bid history, the date/time stamp used for computer-generated SmartBids should be the date/time that the computer placed the last bid, not the date/time that the participant placed the original SmartBid.  Phase 2: Member IDs are linked to their city/state. Member ID can be clicked on to show what city/state bidder is bidding from. (Cool feature…)  Live Bid. Bidding information dynamically streamed includes Time Remaining, Current Bids, Placing Bids, and Bidder User Name. Java Flash Plug-in for auction platform to provide "real time" bidding experience. This Flash application re-creates the feel of a "live auction" by PAGE 25 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)

Suggestion: check for multiple fields, such as a combination of first name, last name, and street address. If they are the same, inform customer that an account already exists for a customer with this name and address, and offer to send sign in information to the email address on file for that account.  No two accounts may use the same email address. If a registrant tries to create a new account using an existing email address, the system will generate a response notifying the registrant that the email address is already in use, and ask the registrant if they need to reset the PAGE 43 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • password for that account. If the user indicates “yes”, the system will generate an email to the email address, with a temporary password that the user should be advised to change.  We need to have a risk-management addition made to the JTVauctions.com registration process. When a NEW customer tries to create a new JTVauctions.com account, the Consumer Protection negative file should be cross-referenced before the NEW account can be successfully established.

Administration Menu Section  Contains labels and links to the following pages:  Create New Auctions  View / Edit Current or Scheduled Auctions  Manage Global Settings  Edit Auction Event Profiles  SKU History  Customer History  User Access Management 9.4.3 Reports Menu Section  Contains labels and links to the following pages:  Status of Current Auctions  Sales Report  Competition Report  RFM Report  Customer Ranking Report  Inventory Performance and Aging Report  Omniture Reports (This is an external link to https://sitecatalyst.omniture.com/login/?r=/sc13/reports/index.html) 9.4.4 Yesterday’s KPIs Section This section will contain a variety of sales metrics, broken down into these categories: Auction Jewelry, Auction Gemstones, Auction Other, and Total Auctions. The KPIs will include: Gross Revenue, Gross Margin Dollars, Gross Margin Percent, Total Auctions Closed, Total Orders (before cancels), Churn Rate, Unique Customers, New Registrations, New Customers, Average Price Point, Total Bids, Bids per Auction.  This data will populate automatically when the “Auctioneer” opens the Auction Admin Main Menu page. PAGE 88 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    •  Gross Margin Percent will be defined as ((Total Product Sales + Total Shipping Revenue) – (Total Product Cost + Total Shipping Expense)) / (Total Product Sales + Total Shipping Revenue).  Gross Margin Dollars will be defined as ((Total Product Sales + Total Shipping Revenue) – (Total Product Cost + Total Shipping Expense))  Churn Rate will be defined as: (Total Auctions – Total Auctions Won) / Total Auctions) (in other words, auctions scheduled but not won, divided by auctions scheduled).  Bids per Auction will be defined as Total Bids Placed / Total Auctions Scheduled. 9.4.5 Today’s Auction Inventory Recap Section  This data will populate automatically when the “Auctioneer” opens the Auction Admin Main Menu page.  This section will provide a summary of key inventory data, in terms of cost, units, and unique SKUs.  Under each category, the data will include Auction Available Inventory (Gemstones), Auction Available Inventory (Jewelry), Auction Available Inventory (Other), and Total Auction Available Inventory.  Note that product should be counted in these inventory numbers only if it is both “Auction Available” AND “Auction Eligible” in the JTV enterprise systems. Furthermore, it must be “sellable”; i.e., it must be in a valid, “sellable” physical inventory location and sellable realm (“white”), and must have a image available in the JTV SuperNova system. 9.4.6 Auction Admin Main Menu Mockup PAGE 89 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 9.5 The Manage Global Settings Page Refer to the page mockup below. This page will have four (4) sections. 9.5.1 Reserve Tier and Bid Increment Sitewide Default Settings Section  This section will contain user-definable cost tiers.  Each cost tier will have corresponding fields which govern the reserve (opening bids) amount and the bid increment for all items in that cost tier.  The opening bid fields will have radio button options, allowing the Auctioneer to choose the field for opening bid amount or percentage of cost.  The bid increment fields allow for discrete, full dollar amounts.  This section should include a button to "Apply Changes."  These parameters may be overridden by Event Profiles. See the Event Profiles section for details. 9.5.2 Overtime Bidding Section  The overtime bidding section contains a radio button option for On or Off.  There will be two data fields, where the Auctioneer can enter the duration of the time extension, and a "Apply Changes" button. The Auctioneer can create a time extension of anywhere from 10 seconds to 60 minutes.  When overtime bidding is ON, the Product Details pages will notify the auction participants with a prominent message, stating: "Overtime Bidding is On!" See the Product Details page mockup for visual example.  When overtime bidding is ON, it will function as follows. Assume, for example, that the time extension is set at 20 seconds. If User A places a bid five seconds before the scheduled end of the auction, the auction will automatically be extended by 20 seconds. If no one else bids before 20 seconds is over, the auction ends. If another user places a subsequent bid before the extension is over, the auction is extended for yet another 20 seconds, and so on.  This section should include a button to "Apply Changes." 9.5.3 Shipping Settings Section  This section contains two fields for setting shipping charges: One for "sitewide first item shipping charge", and a second for "sitewide subsequent items shipping charge."  Subsequent Items are items that are won during the same calendar day.  There will be a "Preferred Customer" shipping charge. This section allows the Auctioneer to set two values: the "Revenue Threshold to Qualify for Preferred Status" and the "New Per-Item Shipping Charge." PAGE 90 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    •  Revenue threshold re-sets to zero for all customers on January 1 each year.  The Auctioneer will also be able to set temporary shipping promotions. There will be two fields for entering starting and ending dates and times. Data validation should be used to ensure that the dates are in the future and that the ending date is after the start date. The system should prevent the promotion from lasting for more than seven days.  There will be a field for the Auctioneer to enter the temporary promotional shipping charge.  This section should include a button to "Apply Changes." 9.5.4 Preview Section  The preview section determines how soon new items will appear online before the system will begin accepting bids.  There will be two fields: one for hours, one for minutes. The maximum amount of time that an item can be in "Preview" status is 24 hours.  This section should include a button to "Apply Changes." PAGE 91 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)

    • 9.6 The Auction Event Profiles Page Refer to the page mockup below. 9.6.1 Purpose of Auction Event Profiles Auction event profiles will be created and used by the Auctioneer. These profiles will provide a common set of characteristics to a group of product, which will make scheduling groups of product easier and faster, providing consistency, and reducing data entry errors. 9.6.2 Event Profile Data Parameters An event profile will contain the following information:  Profile Name (such as “Night Owl Auctions”).  cost tier values (ranges).  opening bid (reserve) amounts (expressed as either a discrete amount or as a percentage of the item’s unit cost).  the bid increment for the tier.  the auction duration for the tier.  radio button options to specify what products will be eligible to use the profile. 9.6.3 Usage Scenario  If the Auctioneer wants to create a new promotional event (we’ll call it “Crazy Auctions”), she would begin by accessing this page.  The Auctioneer will then tab or click into the “Create New Profile” field and enter a new profile name, then click on “Create.”  She would then fill in the 2nd column, which is always the upper range of the cost tier. The system would automatically fill in the lower range of the subsequent cost tier by adding $0.01 to the last value entered by the auctioneer, until all fields are completed.  Working horizontally and adjacent to each cost tier, the Auctioneer will choose a radio button for either “amount” or “% of cost”, and fill in the appropriate field.  Any % of cost values under 100% will automatically appear in BOLD RED as a warning to the Auctioneer. This does not prevent the Auctioneer from proceeding.  The Auctioneer will proceed to designate a bid increment for all items in the cost tier.  The Auctioneer will proceed by designating an auction duration to all items within the cost tier.  The Auctioneer will then choose one of the radio buttons at the bottom. If, for example, she chooses, “Apply to Gemstones Only”, and then later tries to apply the profile to a grouping of jewelry items, the system will generate an error message telling her that this profile can only be applied to products in the gemstone category (retail category = gemstones).  She will finish profile creation by clicking on the “Apply” button.  Similarly, the Auctioneer can edit existing profiles by accessing the page and choosing the profile she wishes to edit from the list. Once she clicks on the profile name, the previously- PAGE 93 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • entered values will populate the page. She can edit, and then click “Apply” to save the changes.  9.6.4 Discussion: Explore a way to randomize closing times within a chosen interval. The Auction Event Profiles Page Mockup PAGE 94 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)

    • 9.8 The Create New Auctions Page 9.8.1 General Requirements  The Auction Merchandiser/Scheduler (the “Auctioneer”) will use this page on a daily basis to schedule new auctions.  The platform will NOT be limited to hourly closing times!  This page will use the AA global header section.  Need to be able to schedule far into the future (at least a month).  The scheduling application should never allow the Auctioneer to create an auction with the same starting & ending date / time. This should result in an error message, and the system should highlight (color-code) the offending data.  The ability to select and schedule an unlimited number of SKUs at once (select a large group of SKUs, give it an event name (apply a “profile” to it), and create a schedule and parameters for them). 9.8.2 The Search Section  This section enables the Auctioneer to find product for scheduling.  It includes scrolling list boxes for       Retail Category Product Type Gemstone Type Material Type Material Purity Brand  Holding down the Control key will enable the user to make multiple selections from each list box.  It includes a capability to search based on cost, by entering a low and high cost  It includes the capability to search based on the product ID (SKU number). Search will support partial matches using wildcards (* or %).  It will include a checkbox to enable/disable thumbnail images in the search results.  It will include a “Find Product” button to execute the search.  No product will ever be eligible to appear on a product details page, search results, or catalog page if it does not have an available image to display or if it is not in a valid, sellable inventory location. These items should not be imported into auction inventory, but if they are and subsequently appear in a search, they should NOT be eligible for scheduling. 9.8.3  The Search Results Section The Auctioneer will have the ability to “filter” search results (very similar to how Excel’s autofilter functions). Autofilters should be turned on / off via a checkbox above the search results. PAGE 97 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    •  Auctioneer will have the ability to rearrange item attribute columns from their default settings.  The search results will display data using the following columns in this default order:                     “Action” column (shows a checkbox) Item thumbnail image Product ID (SKU #)(Clicking on this takes the user to the SKU History page) Description (Same description as in the “Inventory Research” report) Reserve (Functions as an Opening Bid) Item Unit Cost Increment Quantity Available (do not include any Qty already scheduled) Duration (will initially be blank in search results) Start time (will initially be blank in search results) End time (will initially be blank in search results) Product Type (i.e., Ring, Single Stone, etc) Gemstone Material Type Material Purity Size Active Date Retail Category (i.e,, Jewelry, Gemstones, Collectibles, etc) Buyer Vendor  Under the search results and under the “Action” column, there will be a “Choose All” checkbox.  Under the search results, there will be a scrolling “Action” list box. This box will give the user the following options:    Remove checked items from this auction Apply duration to all Create grouping / event.  Under the search results, there will be a "Apply Manual Reserves to Selections" box. This box will give the Auctioneer the ability create opening bid amounts for each selected item in the group by either a percentage of item unit cost, or by cost plus a dollar amount. Clicking on the "Apply" button will apply the choice entered to all selected items above.  Under the search results, there will be a list box displaying available event profiles. Event profiles will be discussed in a later section. The Auctioneer can select one of the event profiles (but no more than one), and click on an "Apply" button. Clicking on the "Apply" button will apply the selected event profile to all selected items above.  Under the search results, there will be a "Export to Excel" button, which will generate a CSV file of all data in the search results. This will be used for manual tracking subsequent to events.  Under the "Export to Excel" button will be a Create New Auction button, which will create an auction event of all the selected items, with their applied and/or manually input data parameters.  The search results will contain many columns - too many to display in a 1024 x 768 resolution display, so a horizontal scroll bar will be necessary. However, ALL of the Auctioneer's selection list boxes or action buttons will appear within a 1024 x 768 resolution display without scrolling to the right. PAGE 98 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 9.8.4 Scheduling New Auctions  After searching for and selecting a list of auction product, the Auctioneer will have the ability to edit the selected auction items. Editable fields will be shown in gray.  The Auctioneer will be able to navigate from field-to-field using the TAB key and the arrow keys, or using the mouse.  The Auctioneer will be able to copy-and-paste data between fields.  Once the auction group is created, the Auctioneer can either apply an "event profile" to the group (which will be faster), or create the auction manually, by setting each item's opening bid, bid increment, duration, and ending time. Once the duration and ending time are filled in, the opening time will be system-generated (calculated).  Event profiles will be outlined later.  Auctioneer will have the ability to choose an auction duration for any group from the following standard durations, or to schedule alternative durations by manually choosing starting and ending dates/times. Standard durations will be reportable; i.e., these timeframes will be available in the standard reporting criteria.                    20-Minute 30-Minute 1-hour 2-hour 3-hour 4-hour 6-hour 8-hour 12-hour 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 Day 7 Day 8 Day 9 Day 10 Day 30 Day  The system should provide some type of warning, preferably via a popup window, to the Auctioneer before the auction is created if any of the items being scheduled have additional quantities of the same item already scheduled in overlapping auction events.  Auto-Scheduler capability should be able to randomly choose product and schedule product from an available list over a timeframe chosen by the Auctioneer, using any parameters given by the Auctioneer. Any auto-scheduler capability should be able to randomly schedule auction ending times – down to 5 minute intervals. For example: Need automated scheduler capability for scheduling ten-minute auctions. The Auctioneer would simply choose the start and end times of the event, and the automated scheduler would choose an assortment of SKUs from specified categories or product types (with cost ranges), and then the auto-scheduler would randomly and evenly schedule them.

    • 9.14 Auction Admin Reporting 9.14.1 General The auction system will require flexible reporting to operate the business. These reports will be available to the business owner via the Auction Admin Main Menu page. They will use the supporting / underlying database as discussed in section 9. These reports will all use the same Auction Admin global header. 9.14.2 Current Auctions Status Page (Daily View) This page exists so the business can monitor the expected performance for future days’ auctions. This page will allow the user to switch between the hourly view and the daily view, and choose to view only gemstone auctions, only jewelry auctions, or all auctions. It will show the closing date, the total bids (total bids = aggregate in dollars of all winning bids on all current auctions) on all items closing on that date, and the total cost of all items closing on that date. In addition, it will show the # of items scheduled to close, the total # of bidders so far, the average unit cost per auction, the total number of bids placed so far, and the average number of bids placed per item so far. 9.14.3 Current Auctions Status Page Mockup (Daily View) PAGE 112 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 9.14.4 Current Auctions Status Page (Hourly View) This is the default view. The page will have a button to switch to the Daily View. This page exists so the business can monitor the expected performance for today’s auctions. This page will allow the user to switch between the hourly view and the daily view, and choose to view only gemstone auctions, only jewelry auctions, or all auctions. It will show the closing date & time (broken down by hour), the total bids on all items closing on that date/time, and the total cost of all items closing on that date/time. In addition, it will show the # of items scheduled to close, the total # of bidders so far, the average unit cost per auction, the total number of bids placed so far, and the average number of bids placed per item so far. In the case of odd times (due to scheduling or because of overtime bidding), those items will be tallied in the subsequent hour. For example, an item closing at 3:30pm would be included in the 4:00pm totals. When all auctions in a time period have closed, the final column will state, “All Auctions Closed”. An item that was scheduled to close at 4pm but did not due to active overtime bidding would cause that hour’s numbers to NOT give this message, until the last auction closes. 9.14.5 Current Auctions Status Page Mockup (Hourly View) PAGE 113 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)

    • 9.14.10 Auctions RFM Report RFM (Recency, Frequency, & Monetary) analysis reports are a good way to understand how the customer base is behaving, and where to focus segmentation efforts based on the identification of the best customers in aggregate. This report is not intended to be a full-fledged RFM analysis, but rather give us an idea of how the customer base is trending over time, and to tell us if they are spending more or less, purchasing more or less often, etc.  The Recency section will be split into six tiers:       0-30 days, 31-60 days, 61-90 days, 91-180 days, 181-365 days, and over 365 days.  It will show the total number of accounts that have made a purchase transaction in each time range, as well as the revenue and orders amounts.  Calculated fields will include revenue per account, orders per account, and % of total accounts within each tier.  The final row should give the total for each column.  The Monetary and Frequency sections will use the same data (columns) as the Recency section. The tiers for each will be as shown in the mockup below.  Lastly, the user will be able to choose the timeframe for the report via a set of radio buttons, and be able to choose either: 1) a "lifetime" report (using all available sales data), or 2) limiting the report to only the past 12 months. The tiers used will be the same regardless of the timeframe chosen. PAGE 120 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)

    • 10 Checkout Process 10.1 Payment Methods The site will accept credit cards (Visa, MC, American Express, and Discover), PayPal, and Amazon Payments. 10.2 Processing Orders 10.2.1 Auction Order Processing  When an auction ends, the system will check the winner’s payment method type in their registration data, and proceed according to payment method. 10.2.2 Processing Credit Cards  Users who store their credit card information will have an automated checkout process. Upon winning an auction, the system will automatically process the order and send the winner an order confirmation email. 10.2.3 Processing Alternative Payment Methods (APMs)  Users with PayPal or Amazon Payments as their default payment method in their registration information will experience a different checkout process.  Upon winning an auction, these users will receive a “Congratulations Winner!” email. This email will instruct them to sign in and provide their payment information.  Customers who have PayPal or Amazon Payments as their default Method of Payment (MOP) and who have unpaid auction winnings, will see a “Winnings Alert” in place of the normal promotional text bar. This text bar should be highly visible.  Customers will be identified and served the text bar either via a cookie, or via the “pay now” link in the winner notification email from Responsys, or because they signed in.  Payment must be made within seven days (168 hours) of the auction’s closing date/time. The email will include a notification that users who fail to complete transactions may have their accounts suspended.  Orders not paid for with Amazon or PayPal (with 168 hours of being won) will be cancelled, and the item placed into a “Hold” status. These cancelled orders will count as churned auctions in the reporting.  When the user clicks on the “Winnings Alert” link, they will be taken to the “Returning Winners Payments” page. See the mockup below. A link to this page will also be provided on various other pages, including the My Account page, My Watch List, My Current Bids, My Bid History, and the Safe Shopping Guarantee page.  The “Returning Winners Payments” page will include the following elements and actions: • A personalized Welcome Back Winner! Message. • A text paragraph stating the following: PAGE 129 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • “Congratulations! You've won XX items for a total of $XXX.XX. We've included a list of these items below. You are seeing this message because you have chosen either PayPal or Amazon Payments as your default method of payment. Please complete your transaction(s) by choosing which items you want to pay for right now, then a shipping method, and finally a payment type. As always, thank you for participating at JTVauctions.com! “ • A listing of items won but not yet paid for. It includes: Item #, Description, Auction Number, Amount owed, the auction ending time, and a “Pay Now” checkbox. The formatting of this list should be the same as that in the “My Bid History” page. • A shipping options section with radio buttons to choose the shipping method, and simple text explaining the options below. • The final section is the Checkout Options section. This section consists of three logo buttons, with a radio button next to each. • Clicking on the PayPal logo or radio button immediately takes the user to the PayPal checkout process. The next page the user sees is a PayPal-hosted page, shown below in 9.2.7. • Clicking on the Amazon Payments logo or radio button immediately loads the Amazon Payments checkout widget on the page, without leaving the page. The page remains in the background, but grayed out, and all other links are disabled. The rest of the process is per the Amazon integration guidelines documentation. See the mockup below. • Clicking on the “Checkout Later” button or radio button immediately grays out the page and disables all links. A DIV layer appears, the following specific text: “No Problem! You can come back to pay anytime within 7 days (exactly 168 hours) after winning your auction(s). Please remember though, any unpaid orders will be cancelled after the payment window expires. Lastly, please remember, to be fair to all of our auction participants, that bidding incurs an obligation on your part to pay when you win, per the Terms of Use Agreement.” • •  This DIV will also include two buttons: a “Return to Payments” link (which closes the DIV and re-enables the page links), and a “JTVauctions Homepage” link, which takes the user to the home page. This page does NOT include the global header or global footer. Upon completing the Amazon or PayPal checkout process, the user will be returned to a Thank You page, which uses the global header and footer, and a prominent link to the JTVauctions.com home page.

    • 10.2.8 Non-Payment Procedure and Locked Accounts Customers / Bidders who have unresolved (i.e., unpaid) auction winnings greater than 7 days old will not be allowed to bid. The system will automatically lock accounts when a PayPal or Amazon Payments customer allows their order(s) to expire, thus putting the account into a "Review Status." These "Review Status" accounts can only be "unlocked" by a customer service representative. Customers cannot unlock the account themselves by paying for the orders, because the orders are automatically cancelled after 7 days (168 hours), so that this product may be returned to the inventory pool and re-auctioned. Customers who have had orders cancelled can have Customer Service Reps unlock their accounts if they haven't paid up to three times. When these customers contact the call center, they will simply be reminded that winning incurs an obligation to pay. 10.2.9 Escalation Policy for Review Status Accounts When an auction participant becomes subject to the escalation policy, they cannot bid again until a Customer Service Rep removes the account from Review Status. The only way for a customer to have their account removed from Review Status is by updating their account with a credit card. They may not use PayPal or Amazon Payments again until their order cancel rate falls below 10%. Amazon Payments and PayPal customers who have a history of non-payment (whose auction orders are automatically cancelled after 7 days) will be subjected to an escalation process. These customers will be subject to the escalation policy if they fail to pay for auction winnings more than three times in a twelve-month period, unless three times is less than 10% of their total winnings.  Example #1: Customer A wins 11 auctions in a twelve-month period. She doesn't respond to the "winner notification" emails requesting payment, and three orders go unpaid. If item number 12 goes unpaid, for a total of four unpaid orders, this customer will become subject to the escalation policy.  Example #2: Customer B wins 55 auctions in a twelve month period. She doesn't respond to the "winner notification" emails requesting payment, and five orders go unpaid (9%). This will not result in the escalation policy being applied at this point; however, each time the seven day period passes and a order is cancelled, a Customer Service Rep will still need to remove the account from Review Status. If the customer wins and doesn't pay for a 56th auction, resulting in six unpaid orders, it would put this customer at 10.7%, and this customer is now subject to the escalation policy.

    • 11 2nd-Chance Auctions 11.1 Purpose  To give JTVauctions.com a competitive advantage over Bidz.com, Overstock Auctions, uBid.com, and other similar sites by improving the customer experience through greater relationship building and value-creation for the customer;  To improve our inventory turns by selling churned product much faster, reducing the need to reschedule cancelled orders. 11.2 Process  When auction participants who have PayPal or Amazon Payments set as their default Method of Payment, they are required to pay for their winnings within 7 days (168 hours) of the auction ending time. When they do not, those orders will be cancelled and the item placed into a “hold” status.  When these orders are cancelled, it will trigger an automated email, which will go to the second-place finisher, if there is one. This email will offer to sell the item to the 2nd-place finisher at their last bid price. It will give the email recipient three options: 1) Credit Card Option o The user will be given three days from the time the email is sent to accept the offer. o The email recipient clicks on a “I accept, pay with my On File credit card” button o This action triggers an automated process to generate an order and ship the item. o No further action by the customer will be needed. 2) PayPal or Amazon Payments Option o o o o The user will be given three days from the time the email is sent to accept the offer. The email recipient clicks on a “Pay with PayPal or Amazon Payments” button. Clicking this button will generate the order, and load the Sign-In page. After signing in, the user will be taken to the Returning Winners Payments Page where they can pay for the order. 3) Decline Option. This would be a “No Thanks” button. Clicking on this button will release the item from a hold status back into auction available inventory.  If the customer does not respond to the 2nd-Chance email within 72 hours after the email is sent, the item will be returned to auction available inventory and rescheduled for a future auction.  The email will not be sent if the 2nd-place finisher’s bid is below the item’s unit cost. PAGE 136 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 11.3 Fraud Prevention Measure  2nd-Chance emails will not be sent to recipients who have two accounts and are essentially bidding against themselves.  Before sending the email, the system should compare the 2nd-Chance recipient’s account data to the Winner’s account data.  The email will not be sent if matches are found on any of: Customer Name, Customer Phone Number, Customer Email Address, Customer Member ID, or Customer Billing and/or Shipping Addresses. 11.4 Reporting Auction Admin will have a “2nd-Chance Report.” This report will show:  the number of 2nd-Chance emails sent over the past week,  the number of acceptances,  the number of actual payments made, and  the revenue generated from each.  It will show the total revenue, total COGS, and gross margin percentage. PAGE 137 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 12 Auction Processing  Anytime an auction ends in a tie, the winner is the person who placed the winning bid amount FIRST.  All bids must be recorded to 1/100th of a second.  Orders generated and passed to JTV's order pipeline. (To where exactly? DML? OMS?)  How often will orders be processed off the site into the OPL?  What data will be passed?  Orders should be accumulated for each customer and submitted into the OPL once per day, to facilitate combined product shipments. This requirement is based on the assumption that JTV's multiline order capability will be functional.  Orders won with credit card as the MOP should charge that credit card as soon as the auction is over, before being accumulated into the combined order. This is to prevent accumulated orders from being completely cancelled in the event of a non-authorized transaction.  Orders won with an alternative payment method, i.e. PayPal or Amazon Payments, will be placed in a Hold status until payment is received. When an auction is won, the customer will be sent an email, requiring payment. If payment is not received within 168 hours, the item order will be cancelled. PAGE 138 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 13 Supporting Database The auction platform will require a supporting database, separate from the enterprise. This database will include tables for:  Current Inventory  Current Bidding Data  Historical Bidding Data  Orders  Customer Data This requirement is necessary because no current tables (specifically the orders tables) combine orders and bidding data, upon which the reporting requirements depend. Secondly, this requirement supports the concept of potentially selling this platform to other large retailers. PAGE 139 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    • 14 Shipping / Logistics 14.1 Simultaneous (combined) shipping All items won by a single bidder in one calendar day should be accumulated into a single order before submission to JTV's Order Management System so they can be shipped out together. This is a critical must-have platform capability. This requirement assumes that JTV's multiline capability will be functional. 14.2 Invoices All auction items should ship with invoices/packing slips that are clearly distinct from other JTV products (different colored paper, different logo, different return policy printed on invoice). Different / distinctive invoices will be required for each JTV auction site and/or storefront. 14.3 Auctioneer Capabilities The Auctioneer will have significant capabilities in the area of shipping configuration from within the Auction Admin Global Settings page. See that section for details. Briefly, these capabilities will include the following. 14.3.1 Preferred Customer Free Shipping flag There will be a Preferred Customer Free Shipping flag for customers (bidders/winners) with over $1000 (for example). These customers will get free shipping for the remainder of the calendar year. 14.3.2 Shipping Charges  Shipping charge on initial item (won in the calendar day).  Shipping charge on subsequent items won in the same calendar day.  Shipping promotions, scheduled with a price and start/end date/time. 14.4 International shipping requirements (Phase 2 Enhancement) The platform needs to be able to handle international shipping, etc (UK, Canada minimum) and foreign addresses.

(Request For Proposal)  Discuss: What are the minimum CMA Requirements? Would we create our own, incorporate the existing Auction CMA (not enthusiastic about this idea), or plug in a different CMA? Can the CMA be a part of Auction Admin?  Discuss: The possibility of creating this auction platform, and then selling it to other large-scale retailers, has been discussed.  Discuss: The system will require an underlying database with tables for customers, bid & order history.  Discuss: How often will orders be processed off the site into the OPL? Meet with Carey to review Auction Processor section requirements.  SEO plan review  Discuss: Do we need to build in any taxable/non-taxable functionality?  Discuss: Inventory Import - How will this be done? What would the data steward's role be?  Discuss: Do we need to discuss any special considerations for inventory that is brought into this system with odd costs? (for example, $14,2654)  Discuss: Need to discuss security requirements. Site should be PCI compliant and should use SSL Server Certificate. Account information pages especially need to be secure.  Discuss: Do we need to consider how many concurrent participants might be on the site at any given time? How many visitors have we been getting per day? Peak?  Discuss: In a new platform with isolated inventory, should we keep the JTV SKUs, or generate new SKUs?  Discuss: How should Customer Care supervisor account deactivation codes be generated in Auction Admin? PAGE 141 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)

The first bidder to reach $20 wins. If no bidder reaches $20, then the highest bidder wins. This is probably a 4-hour event, comprised of multiple 1-hour auctions. 17.9 3rd-Party Vendors on JTVauctions.com  The site will be able to show 3rd-party products fed into the system through a common scheduling interface managed by the 3rd-party vendor/retailer (TPV).  3rd-party items can be given their own customizable display:  These items will be identified via vendor branding (such as a logo or text link) on the catalog/browse/search results pages and the product details page.  They can contain unique branding in the listing description section of the item’s product detail page. PAGE 144 OF 145 Jtvauctions_Brd_V3.1 (1)
    •  Each TPV will have an “About Me” page, linked from their logo.  TPVs will schedule their own auctions using the JTV platform’s scheduling application (limited access – not able to see other vendors’ data).  The system will export order data to the TPV systems.  TPVs will fulfill their own orders. JTV will not take physical possession of their inventory.  Transaction processing must be discussed. Do all transactions go through JTVs card processor (Litle)? Do we collect taxes on 3rd-party transactions?  TPVs must be PCI-compliant.  In exchange for placement on JTVauctions.com, TPVs will pay a commission to JTV for each sold item. 17.10 Network of branded auction sites  The longer-term objective is to have an auction platform which can share multiple sources of inventory (from multiple retailers, not a consumer-to-consumer model) among multiple, separatelybranded auction sites or storefronts. For example, Zales, ICE.com, and JTV could all supply jewelry to the same site.  There would be multiple separately branded sites. For example, one site would be for very highend luxury items; another would be for low-cost jewelry.  The benefits include revenue and margin optimization (multiple companies driving multiple customer bases to a common inventory, thus enhancing the bidding multiplier effect) and greater customer loyalty due to greater product mix. Because the site(s) would be bigger with more customers, it would rank better, gain more publicity and inbound links, and marketing dollar ROI would be improved over a non-networked site(s).  These sites would enable bidders on one site to compete for the same item as someone bidding from a separate auction site or storefront. These sites or storefronts would use different branding/skinning, and will include international functionality.  The platform should accommodate drop-shipping.  Ability to scale to 5,000+ auction closes per day across the network of sites.  Scalable Diversity – quickly launch new websites and manage them from a single admin system.  The site(s) would include a currency converter.
