Whether you’re a budding startup or a well-established company, mobile commerce has become a crucial way to do business. With Big Human’s marketplace app development team, your organization can bring your products and services to customers with a human-centric, effective, and smooth-running marketplace app.
Having an experienced team of software engineers alongside a creative-minded team of UI/UX designers really makes a difference. Our marketplace app development team can build the marketplace you need – whether it’s B2B, B2C, or C2C — and we’ll find perfect solutions and deliver a product that meets your, and your users', expectations.
A marketplace app is similar to an eCommerce app, but they’re not to be confused – they’re both very different models and meet different needs.
An eCommerce app offers its own products and services and requires certain technologies that users have come to expect: a payment system, listing services, search capabilities, location services, etc. A marketplace, however, is a mediator that bridges the gap between sellers and buyers, making a marketplace app a place of cooperation and connection between parties.
The seller requires certain capabilities from a marketplace app; these are things like controlling and editing their listings, inventory automations, delivery, and payment solutions, to name a few. And the buyer needs other tools as well: secure payment methods, profile creation, shopping cart, messaging capabilities, and more.
A successful online marketplace app development project is scalable, responsive, and easy to navigate. Mobile commerce has become everyone’s preferred way to shop because it’s quick, effective, and frictionless (or it should be).
When it comes to Big Human's work with digital marketplaces, one client, in particular, stands out: TaskRabbit. Our development team didn't tackle this one (although they certainly have the skillset for a marketplace app like this), our strategists and designers provided dev-ready assets for the client's global online platform.

Marketplace App Development Company
At Big Human, our marketplace app development process is focused on client engagement and satisfaction. We want to fully understand what you need so we can deliver an app that meets and exceeds your expectations.
We start by getting to know as much as we can about your company. You give us your business requirements, and we’ll help on the tech side. Our team will look at your competitors and market leaders, finding focus and ideating solutions for a marketplace app development project that will make your stand out. Using a variety of user research strategies (including drafting user personas and speaking to stakeholders directly), we collect data that will allow our team to develop a truly human-centric app.
The next phase is where we define your tech stack. What are the different layers of your app? What technologies do you need? The framework and tools we use during online marketplace app development projects vary. Our developers are knowledgeable across many languages, platforms, and operating systems and can build custom solutions for every application.
This is where we start giving life to what was once just an idea. Our marketplace app developers use an Agile development process, which means that we'll show you regular updates and get your feedback along the way. We take a modular approach to development, which means we build each piece of the app separately, allowing us to make changes quickly, keeping your marketplace app scalable and easy to maintain.
Before releasing your marketplace app out into the wild, we make sure it’s perfect. We test every aspect of the app — compatibility, accessibility, ease of use, and everything in between — and if we discover any flaws or areas of opportunity, we make sure they’re resolved before hitting the market.
