Marketplace development

Marketplace development in Armenia. In this article we tell you how to develop a marketplace from scratch. Such trading platforms require not only knowledge of a specific programming language. It is necessary to be familiar with the market, with the work of large sites, with successful stories and correct examples. Also, to develop a trading platform, you need to find a team that acts synchronously and smoothly, with a project manager who knows the intricacies of the requirements for marketplaces, has started and completed similar projects from scratch, and has made and corrected inevitable mistakes. If you ignore the team's experience factor, you will inevitably become a guinea pig.

The price of developing a marketplace is the first information that interests potential customers. But in order to understand the objective answer to the question “how much does it cost to create a marketplace”, you must first have an idea of the requirements for such a large-scale development.

  1. It is necessary to decide on the issue of choosing an experienced team;
  2. Study the strengths and weaknesses of the work of potential performers;
  3. Together with the team, decide on the type of site, business model, main functions;
  4. Identify the minimum technical requirements, technologies and programming languages;
  5. It is necessary to draw up technical specifications and divide the work into stages;
  6. After this, you can calculate the cost of the project based on the golden mean of specialist-person costs-price;
  7. After calculating the budget, draw up an agreement with legal guarantees and protection of the interests of both parties.

Who should you trust to develop a marketplace?

You can't save money here. You can entrust the renovation of a small apartment to a trusted contractor without experience and, by controlling the entire process, get a good result. But you cannot entrust the construction of a high-rise building to a team without experience in large-scale construction, resources, equipment and professional specialists on staff. The Astudio team has solid experience in developing trading platforms. We created 9 identical projects from scratch, the first of which was in 2014, and the last is now at the programming stage.
