Sellbig: eCommerce marketplace for small businesses
SellBig is an ecommerce platform that helps small businesses in the US sell their products to customers worldwide.
The Client wanted to foster an environment where US sellers can sustainably grow their businesses competing domestically and in the global market. The first thing we needed to do is to come up with a user-friendly and aesthetically appealing solution which would attract both sellers and customers. Our final aim was to create a modern and easy-to-use eCommerce platform empowered with all the instruments for a proper stores management.
Following the Scrum methodology, we created this custom application from scratch. The solution was empowered with all essential ecommerce functions available on both back and front offices.
The seller got a possibility to create a store, display products in catalogue, manage orders, refund items, chat with buyers and view analytics on the number of sold/viewed products. In the role of admin, it’s possible to сhange banners on homepage and adjust content on static pages using Summernote WYSIWYG editor.
On the buyer’s side, one can create an account, buy products, track the status of their order, request a refund and chat with sellers.
- product catalogue with search and filter functionality;
- customizable profiles for buyers and sellers;
- chat with sellers;
- featured product analytics for sellers;
- analytics on website sales for admin;
- refund functionality;
- customizable banners on home page.
As a result of our work, the customer got a technologically savvy system which provides small businesses with a marketplace, and generates profit based on fees from transactions. Finally, our custom solution made possible to increase the flexibility of the system which can be easily upgraded according to the future business requirements.
