Marketplace App Development Flow at COAX

Market analysis

Your business processes needs a unique take on online marketplace app development, and we (re)define being unique in the way we serve. It's vital to research your competitors, evaluate their offers, and determine how you can differentiate yourself from them to bring your business idea to life.

Choice of monetization model

To generate revenue, each custom marketplace solution needs a monetization strategy that is both efficient and democratic. It's crucial to choose the choice (or a combination of alternatives) that best matches your target demographic, whether it's a one-time payment, a monthly membership, or a percentage of each transaction.

Payment gateway provider selection

A marketplace takes a down payment from a buyer and then provides it to the seller after the transaction is completed. As a consequence, the payment gateway should be able to escrow money, providing payment security and preventing fraud among marketplace app users.

Build a marketplace MVP to test it with target audience

Only until a marketplace program meets a genuine need for its users will it grow. You may avoid constructing a product that people detest by creating an MVP and exposing it to your audience early on. Customers gain from timely feedback since it helps service providers create an enticing sales channel and an easy buying platform for them.

Maintain and upgrade

The journey doesn't end with launching your final product. As an experienced marketplace development company, our technical team can continue to work on platform updates and improvements on a regular basis.
