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. Let's say for example John wants to buy a vegetable, instead of going to Gifts shop were he normally buy's vegetables, he uses swachev app to order the vegetable and gift deliverers directly to his house fast and safe. And he is secure against any disease. Gift does this to all her customers keeping them secure against coming to cue or line up in her store exposing themselves to possible infections with virus.
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
I am very proud of what I have archived so far, it took a great work and consistency to get to this point. I have an MVP which users are able to interact with.
What I learned
I learnt a lot of new technologies, I learnt how to solve problems considering the locals. And I also learnt how to use the square payment system which is fast and secure.
The next thing is to keep building until I have a finished product and lauched for local stores to use as a means of goods distributions.
