THE CHALLENGE

The client wanted us to build an e-commerce app with social network integration function aimed at vendors who want to sell their goods using a social network service. We had to integrate all the functionality of online magazines and stores into the social network, and address the following :

• The platform should take into account the
peculiarities of web services in a
region.

• The user interface should be adapted to the
specific users in a region.

THE SOLUTION

We divided the development process into 3 main stages:

Stage 1:

The web application itself is based on a popular library for e-commerce applications – SpreeCommerce. The application has all the typical e-commerce functions available both on the back and front end, including:
 
• Registration.

• Search.

• Order management.

• Product management.

• Basket.

• Check out process.

• Customer service.

• Payment systems integration.

Stage 2:

Integrating all the functionality of online stores into the service. We used a custom API to Join the e-commerce functions with the social network’s ones.
In addition, the platform and its interface are adapted to the market and to the peculiarities of web solutions in a specific region.

Stage 3:

We had our QA specialist test all the functionality and its compatibility with other systems.

THE RESULT

The client received an e-commerce app with social network integration function, offering rich functionality and deep integration with the communication service. The e-commerce platform has a unique functionality such as custom display of goods in the form of bookshelves.
