Instant is an online marketplace developed for connecting buyers and sellers of the European Union. The main idea behind the project was to create an easy-to-use platform that could help small businesses sell their products online. Also, the marketplace was intended to give easy and quick access to a wide range of product categories for buyers and provide an exceptional customer experience.
Instant is based on Vendure, a headless eCommerce framework. The admin panel was configured using Node.js. The IdeaSoft design team has created a unique design with simple navigation for the marketplace. The front-end part is written mostly with React, although Angular was used for some features. The chosen technical stack helped us to develop a lightweight, convenient and user-friendly platform that allows you to find the desired product and place an order in a few clicks. Users can pay for purchases using PayPal. Integration with DHL Express has also been added to enable customers to track their delivery.
This is the first version of Instant designed as MVP (minimum viable product). In the next releases, the Client plans to extend the functionality of the platform.
