The customer was an Irish online sales provider, offering auction services.
The customer wanted an online sales floor that was enabled for desktop and mobile. The goal was to encourage and allow users to create private sales advertisements. Users would also be able to participate in auctions through the platform.
It all began with a distinct and user-friendly website that allowed users to easily create online advertisements without being burdened in needless code. The interface functioned seamlessly with iOS and Android.
Interestingly, no registration was required. Users would begin by creating an ad description and then adding a photograph to accompany the advert. The friendly and approachable interface encouraged multiple ads. Users then could set the price and the payment method.
Users could scan though a massive database of available categories, seeking genres, niches, and sub-categories at their own discretion. It was intuitively designed to encourage participation and exploration. The application consisted of roughly 130 different categories.
The auction was a major component of the project. On a paid basis, users could create an auction for their respective items. The platform was suited with many payment options, such as PayPal, SMS, debit and credit cards, and Realex.
