Engaging approach to e-commerce app development
Reimagining the online purchases with broadcasting features

Scale business opportunities for e-commerce
Creating an application in an emerging niche means a new channel for engaging new customers.
Attract younger audiences
According to Sprout, teens and young adults prefer video-based apps like TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat.
Sellers can connect with their partners & friends in one broadcast and sell items together.
Sellers can go online, communicate with the audience, at the same time showcase their products.
Ability to pin a webshop to a streaming interface to allow users browse through the lists of available items.
A feature that allows users to conduct online giveaways and randomly choose the winner among the audience.
We’ve connected e-commerce live shops with payment systems like Paypal, Stripe, and Braintree.
We’ve provided an MVP with tight deadlines.
Were made during the first two weeks. 65% of those users keep using the app.
Go live every day and sell on average 8 items per day.
Potential buyers spend time in the app every day.
The technologies behind
The client required quick action as their team planned to roll out an app ASAP. We’ve come up with an idea to use a customizable video conferencing engine VidRTC as a core. The rest was to customize it to e-commerce needs.
VidRTC is based on peer-to-peer video conferencing technology WebRTC that works for broadcasting. It saved half a month of development and allowed us to spend more time focusing on brilliant UI.
Another technology worth mentioning is an AI translation powered by Microsoft Azure. It allows buyers to connect with audiences around the world.
An integration with instant AI translation
For streaming audio & video
The team behind the project comprised 10 specialists. We had to create the concept first and then turn it into the MVP.
The development process included: business research, software architecture development, creation of UI/UX mockups, software development, and QA.
