Build your Sharetribe FLEX marketplace with IT House

Additional features for marketplaces built or customized our developers

Although Sharetribe Flex provides 90% of what you need, i.e., it gives you a robust back-end with all the features you need for an advanced service, rental, or events marketplace, it all should be configured and adapted to your project.

Some development work is always needed to build a marketplace with Flex. The great thing is that you can use the programming language of your choice to work with the Flex API. If you use Flex Template for Web to create your marketplace site, you need to be familiar with its technology stack, i.e., React.

Modern web template

Flex allows you to build a unique frontend from scratch, but also you can usefully functional open-source template.

Flexible pricing

Users can apply discounts, taxes, seasonal pricing, delayed payments or invoicing. Flex’s transaction process editor allows it all.

Availability management

Marketplace support both day-based and time-based availability as well as multi-seat bookings

Customizable search engine

The powerful search engine allows finding listings by geolocation, free text, price, availability, or any other value.

Build mobile app

Since Flex provides a robust API, and you have full control over the code, it is also possible to build mobile apps.

Integration with 3rd parties

A way to extend your marketplace is to integrate third party services, i.e., Google Maps, Intercom, MailChimp, A/B test tools, or any other.

Advantages of Sharetribe Flex instead of GO

Why you should consider choosing to use Flex

Modern design

The design of the Flex Template is a big upgrade from Sharetribe Go’s look and feel. For instance, instantly get an Airbnb-like “map + list” view, and the ability to filter listings by date when something is available.

Build a mobile native app

Build a native mobile app. That’s a massive amount of development work on your current site. Flex would make that option a lot easier and cheaper, especially now that there’s also the open-source templates.

Get faster development

Using Flex as a marketplace platform ensures faster development. Flex only requires front-end development, which means that in many cases, you can move forward a lot faster when you want to implement new things in your marketplace. 

Stop worrying about software updates

Regularly get new features for free. Sharetribe is continually improving Flex Console, Flex APIs, and Flex Templates, which means you can get new functionality very cheaply, as you don’t need to order that from developers every time.

Stop worrying about software updates

Sharetribe’s team is always accessible to help them with any issues they might have. They are constantly monitoring uptime and notify them if we notice anything suspicious.

How we translate your ideas into functional products

The Team

We believe you will agree that the team behind is the reason for success. We have our in-house team, no 3rd country outsourcing, which means that we are 100% Europe Based reliable team of experienced developers, project managers, and domain experts. We provide the best software Engineers at an affordable price. Our managers are Co-Funders of TechHub Riga and are organizers of Ruby on Rails Baltics Community groups on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Meetup.

Our team has extensive knowledge of the latest technology trends, modern application frameworks, advanced development techniques, and a quality-driven delivery model. To minimize development time, programming efforts, and overall project costs, without sacrificing quality.

Web developers do believe that lifetime learning is key to success. In the tech space, skills become obsolete every two years, give or take. So, it’s better to hire a web developer who can learn new technologies easily, rather than someone who knows a specific technology now. But may not adapt when a new one comes along. We do stay up-to-date with the latest technology!

The Management

Agile Scrum Project management methodology is not just a management process. It’s a style of work that incorporates many project management core values like communication, transparency, incremental development, short development cycles. It is entirely transparent project management that matches your business realities and expectations.

Use of Model-View-Controller (MVC) – separating Program Logic and Actions from Layout and Design and allowing multiples contemporary designs and interfaces based on the same background functionality. Reducing development and testing time and creating native multi-platform applications.

We work in short development iteration cycles. So we can quickly build working prototypes to test. What allows us to evaluate before going public. Short development cycles allow market-driven development with the flexibility to adapt to market needs and desires quickly. Our customers are free to attend any planning and development meeting to give direct feedback, and clarifying questions to achieve the best result.

Quality assurance and tests

In all projects, we perform a thorough automated system Testing. To maintain high quality and eliminate any bugs way before they reach the public stage. Performance, load, and stress testing.

Almost every feature in the systems has its quality test to make sure any new updates do not affect previous systems. Thorough testing enables continuous development, fewer bugs in production systems — clean, highly maintainable code. Keeping the code clean and labeled correctly, so someone else can efficiently work with the code. It reduces total production time (especially for complex systems), allows quick problem solving, is faster and more stable. Besides, it will enable easy updates and migrations, simple scalability, multi-browser compatibility, excellent usability, scalability, and universal compatibility

Expertise

We have wide experience in different domains, solutions, and technologies – we can build the type of system you’re looking for.
