SpdLoad developed the CRM dashboard of the B2B2C marketplace using ReactJS. The team has significantly expanded its functionality, so we decided to collaborate on other projects as well.

Vadym Bondar
Founder and CEO MyWishApp Ukraine

I am very pleased with the work with the SpdLoad team. It seems that the Ukrainian software development market is very large, but it is very difficult to find a company that combines quality, speed and price at the highest level. SpdLoad is a company that always gives more than you expect. I recommend this team.

Dmitriy Sosunov
Founder Smartpolka Russia

Their team’s work led to a working app that’s begun generating its first sales already in nine locations. Collaborating with SpdLoad was issue-free thanks to their ability to provide frequent status updates and willingness to fix issues and make everything work properly.

Andrei Kandratsenia
Project manager Connexzion Cyprus

The work has been high quality from the SdpLoad team, leading to continued projects between the teams. Their useful insights even outside of their scope of work make them a great addition to the project. Customers can expect a knowledgeable, communicative team.

FAQ

Have a question? Look here

What does a marketplace development company do?

The marketplace development company has to be experienced in implementing marketplace solutions.

The services should cover all business processes of the multi-vendor marketplace, while the development should include

  • product information modules (PIM)
  • order management systems (OMS)
  • merchant portal
  • customization
  • and an analytics module.

Everything must be integrated with external systems such as CRM, logistics services, etc.

How do you guarantee the quality of your services?
In order to process your request in a quality manner, we carry out fundamental preparatory work, during which you can communicate with the team and see how our processes work. During development, business and technical requirements are constantly monitored by team leaders. And to exclude the possibility of bugs, we test the application for a long time and hard so that your users do not experience any difficulties when using the platform.
What are the types of the marketplace?

There are three main categories of marketplace platforms depending on their target audience and business model:

  • business-to-business (B2B marketplace)
  • business-to-customer (B2C marketplace)
  • and peer-to-peer (P2P marketplace), or sometimes called customer-to-customer (C2C marketplace).

The marketplace model is relevant for a large number of industries, as it is an easy way to expand the range of products or services without increasing costs.

World practice shows that most of the companies that become marketplaces are

  • e-commerce businesses
  • large retailers
  • postal and logistics operators
  • real estate
  • financial organizations
  • marketplace app development, and IT development companies.
How much does it cost to develop a marketplace mobile app?

The average cost of custom marketplace mobile app development ranges between $40,000- $90,000 for a single mobile app development platform.

The development of mobile applications like Amazon, Airbnb, or eBay depends on the country:

  • from $90 to $150 per hour in the US, the UK or Western Europe
  • from $35 to $80 per hour in Eastern Europe and Ukraine
  • and from $20 to $40 per hour in India.
How much does it cost to develop an online marketplace?

The general cost of the online marketplace is between $45,000 and $120,000. The price highly depends on

  • the region
  • size of the development team
  • complexity
  • features
  • type of e-commerce marketplace
  • partner software development company
  • business model
  • payment gateways, etc.
How does a marketplace website work?

The marketplace is a platform where the buyer can compare and buy goods at once from several sellers.

The marketplace website is a kind of intermediary between the consumer and those who offer their products or e-commerce services.

There you can sell countless products, provide convenient conditions for the purchase, provide the necessary guarantees, get quality assurance, and receive high-quality products.

The source of income for the marketplace is the commission for the e-commerce business.
