Hi dimer friends,

After seeing the tactics and methods applied by online organisations like amzn and fk which involves imposing all risks on sellers and extra ordinary amounts of commissions from them its a clear loot on seller. I felt there a clear need for an open source platform which serves as a medium to broadcast all of their store listings freely and based on their geographical location anyone can search for anything and find a nearest vendor selling it.

It requires almost nothing, just one platform dedicated to keeping it simple. So I created this app, you can search on play-store chaik. I don’t know if its going to work or not but i would keep it open for anyone to use. It has no bloatware, no ads and no commission, forever. It’s fully functional right now but i would keep upgrading things.

Any suggestions is welcome.

Also I don’t know if this post will come under self-promotion. I hope it doesn’t.

Here are the links- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=c...

I first had to create a team as it needed different languages. I have not taken formal education in programming, i am always eager to learn though.

Suppose you are in a new region and want to buy lets say a coffee mug and you don’t know who sells around you. You will go out start looking for shops around you, if you are lucky you will find soon if not you may have to spend more time looking for it. Even if you find one you might be unclear about the quality and the price which was charged for it. With an app like this you can simply search on your phone and know all of the shops that are selling coffee mugs, choose between options, see and compare prices.
These days people where live that itself is a new region for them as they hardly even know their neighbour, it would be tough for them to know all shops around them.

Yes but have you contacted a shop near by.. Second have you made this application by own. I am interested to make one application.

What’s the revenue model for this app?
Is it free for ever for listing?

Isn’t Google doing exactly this on their search engine for years?

These types apps & services are usually free in the beginning. Once it starts to attract user base, revenue model arrives.

For this kind of app, ads and affiliates are the most favorable monetization methods. Additionally, the owner can charge for sponsored listings and sell user data.

It doesn’t need much to host the listing data, hardly few mbs. So I shouldn’t require much to keep it running for free forever. If it ever goes too much different services can be introduced which are complementary to the services, but the listing shall be forever free.

Yes google is doing same, but they are searching within the web, we will be searching within your nearest stores. Also google will only search for shops, not the products in them.

I hope it remains free forever, as it would kill the very basis of app if it has to introduce things like affiliate marketing or ads. Also, selling user data is like cheating the users, it shouldn’t be done.

Good luck. Can you list some tutorials for beginners on how to start app development? I read few articles but couldn’t make head or tail of it

It’s because sellers in your area haven’t listed anything. If you own a shop or a store you can list something from sellers app and then test that on search.
