About Client

The client based in Utah has started the business of hosting the auction events in 2004, where the sellers and buyers across the USA were invited to participate in the event.
The sellers with the overstocked inventory and excessive assets are allowed to sell the products in a variety of combinations in the bulk and invited buyers can place the bid for the different products. The buyer with the highest bid price will be announced as a winner and get the products after paying the bid price.

Business Challenges

With the offline business of hosting the auction events, when any auction event is organized, the sellers and buyers have to assemble at the definite place. This way a good amount of money was spent in making the arrangements for the events. Additionally, the buyers who were not able to come to the place where event was organized were not able to participate in the event.
Due to this, the client wanted to build an online auction platform where the auction events can be organized virtually. The sellers can auction the products and remote buyers can place the bid without needing to come to the place.


The simple and user-friendly mobile responsive auction platform was developed that’s connecting buyers and sellers. The sellers can post and sell the wide range of products, and buyers can bid on the products from the comfort of their couch. Later, the product is shipped to the winning buyer, once they make the payment.
