Marketplace built on Sharetribe FLEX

The Octopus Club

Born from the constant need to update our baby’s things so they’re age appropriate, preference for a clutter-free home and because we care about the environment.

This is a marketplace that was specific to parents and caregivers, to buy, sell and give baby & kids stuff. A place were there are also beautiful handmade products made to order by trusted makers

IT House was involved in this project from the idea to the launch of the marketplace. Together with founder Ana and the dev team (1-2 backed developers + 1 front end developer), we manage to build it in around seven months on top of the Sharetribe Flex template. In this time, we implement multiple new features and fresh new designs (WEB and Mobile friendly). We’re very proud of the outcome and delightfully to take part in this project.

Some of the features are:

– change Flex template to support product type transactions;
– integrate 3rd party content management system;
– featured and recently sold items;
– the similar product you may like;
– option to allow sellers to sign up and give things without entering bank details;
– integrate 3rd party services for live chat and pop-up messages.
– custom filter mapping.

“I’ve had a great experience working with IT House. Martins Rudzitis was my main contact and we quickly established a great professional connection.

There is never an issue that cannot be solved, he is always happy to discuss things and to try to find the best way to solve problems. 

I am grateful to have found IT House and to be working with them on an ongoing basis. 

They made my dream come true!”

Ready to start a project with IT House right now

Other great projects built on Sharetribe

We have great expertise in marketplaces development. We use both Sharetribe versions: Sharetribe GO and Sharetribe FLEX. Sharetribe GO or its OpenSource version allows you to create a marketplace that has almost all basic marketplace features: let your users create profiles, list their offering, interact with each other, and make online payments. Sharetribe FLEX as it is more scalable and has modern design and usability. We love the idea behind this new app that marketplace owners can even create standalone applications.
