I want to create a site similar to ebay or flippa, an auction website, with the ability to do reverse auctions (so people can request certain things, etc.). Would you business people out there suggest that I learn PHP and MySQL, hire a programmer, or buy something out of the box like a wordpress plugin like prospress or out of the box software like ilance? I'm leaning toward learning myself that way if something goes wrong (which it inevitably will) I can fix it and if I can't fix it, I can at least have a basic understanding of what the problem is. I'm just not sure if I'm smart enough to do it? It seems like it would be pretty complicated. Thanks in advance!
