The business-to-consumer aspect of product commerce (e-commerce) is the most visible business use of the World Wide Web. The primary goal of an e-commerce app is to sell goods online.
This aplication was inspired base on the recent outbreake of disease, the application aims at solving the issue of people moving into local stores to buy their daily needs. Hence, local store owners can advert their produce using the application and users gets to buy things from their own local stores and get it delivered to them very fast and safe.
What it does
This project deals with developing an e-commerce app for Local businesses. It provides the users with a catalog of different local produce available close to them for purchase. In other to facilitate online purchase a shopping cart is provided to the user. The system is implemented using a 2-tier approach, with a backend database and an application interface.
How I built it
I started with the development of a UI/UX design were I made a prototype design first, before going ahead to build an MVP.
Challenges I ran into
One of the challenges I had was to be able to get users feedback on what they feel the app should look like, The local buyers wanted something that imitates their local shopping system, so it was a challenge to make it suit in.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are very proud of what we have archived so far, it took a collective system to get to this point. We have an MVP which users are able to interact with.
What I learned
We learnt a lot of new technologies, we learnt how to solve problems considering the locals.
The next thing is to keep building until we have a finished product and lauched for local stores to use as a means of goods distributions.
