DICEUS provides top-notch marketplace software development services for projects of any purpose, any scope, and any complexity. We specialize in full-cycle and custom software development in accordance with your requirements and specifics. Our top priorities are your goals and expectations, focusing on which we are able to achieve the best possible results by putting our expertise into your plans and ideas. Here’s what we do in terms of marketplace development in particular.

UI/UX design

A good, selling marketplace properly satisfies users’ needs and goals without requiring much extra effort. Being the essential foundation of your future marketplace platform, the proper UI/UX design never makes you go far to do something while translating all the functional elements (buttons, links, interactive objects) in the most intuitive and even direct way possible. To achieve all that, we have a team of experienced UX/UI designers that have been creating intuitive interfaces and optimizing user experience for years.

Frontend development

We transform the blueprint UI/UX design assets into the vivid, user-attractive, demand-stimulated frontend. At this stage, the whole “front part” of your marketplace application – i.e., everything your end users (traditionally, marketplace vendors and their customers) see and use. When it comes to software development in a marketplace project, we supply you with expert frontend engineers that can set the project direction to hit the spot in the long run. Marketplaces have their own commonly accepted specific elements, which we know how to implement best.

Backend development

On the flip side of the frontend, there is a technical part of the marketplace application that holds together and powers up the whole system. It is called backend. It defines how fast your application performs, how smoothly it transitions users through its functional areas and elements, and how failproof and traffic-resistant your software is. With high traffic volumes that marketplaces must usually sustain, the backend must be sturdy, optimized, and well-protected. We have specialists to reinforce your backend quality with flexible development approaches and grant top security.

CMS integration

A marketplace requires more software powers and performance capacities than your usual eCommerce store or service. That’s why there are usually two ways to create a new online marketplace – build a completely or partially custom software architecture from scratch or put a readymade CMS platform into its core. Depending on the specifics of a particular project, we can help choose the most proper eCommerce platform to power up your marketplace website development and uncover its potential to the fullest.

Benefits of marketplace application development

An online marketplace is an alternative to traditional commerce moved online where more focus is put on wholesale and multi-vendor opportunities. As a marketplace owner, you get a highly profitable possibility to provide the trading ground for a multitude of vendors and their buyers simultaneously, benefiting from both contributions. Thus, you earn on mutual services – vendors pay you for the opportunity to sell online in a convenient, promoted place while you attract customers on your behalf.
