Additional features for marketplaces built by IT House

Sharetribe Go as the SaaS (hosted) version is a powerful tool for your marketplace place. However, in for definite niche marketplace limitations may appear. In such a case, the marketplace owner can choose to move OpenSource or Flex. In both cases, they will need developers.

For the last few years, the IT House has been polishing its skills in developing marketplaces. During that time, we had clients in many spheres, for an example:
– kind of Airbnb in Australia,
– kid’s preloved clothing in the UK,
– tennis services in the USA,
– motorhome rental in the USA,
– biker friendly bnb in the UK,
– and many other many clients.

Cart for product marketplace

For selling real products like pre-used kids’ clothing, it is more convenient to add all in the cart and checkout in a single transaction.

Option to add sub-listings

One guest-house, many rooms? Providers now can create a single listing for the entire house and add sub-listings for rooms.

Different search logic

Prioritize or sort listings by different parameters like price, number of orders, ratings, and all is doable by upgrading search engine.

Referral or coupon system

Referral and coupon system increases the propensity to purchase among customers. It is a great marketing tool.

Update reviews or ratings

Thumb up or down works well in many cases. However, 5-star ratings help buyers to get an overall feeling about the provider at a first glace.

Other payment gateways

Stripe is a great software platform for an internet business. However, to cover extra payment options, other gateways can be applied.

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


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

Almost no system is entirely new, there are always parallels in structural, functional, or technological levels, and in a new domain, this can even be an advantage if you want to introduce new innovative solutions and approaches.

Industry-leading design – whether you prefer realistic (skeuomorphic), flat, or the new and trending Google’s Material design, we’ve got you covered.
