WHY I BUILT IT
Retail is changing, and small business can’t keep up. With giants like Amazon and Walmart in the arena, you’re forced to either dilute your brand and eat commissions, or lose out on a huge customer base.
I’m a web developer, but you shouldn’t have to be one just to sell your products on the internet.
Business Owner --- As the owner of a store, I want to be able to reach customers with an e-commerce platform so that I can expand my business and increase revenue.
Customer --- As a consumer, I want to be able to easily find and purchase great products from my favorite retailers online so that I don’t have to leave the house.
Store Manager --- As the manager of a store, I want to be able to easily check and update inventory so that we don’t run out of products that customers want and need.
Deployment & Front-End
Application is currently deployed using Heroku. The site front-end is built on the Materialize CSS framework and designed to be responsive and accessible. Content is dynamically shown to the users with the Handlebars templating engine.
