We take a comprehensive approach to custom marketplace software development at Linkup Studio. Our team is dedicated to guiding our clients through every step of the process, from initial concept to ongoing support and maintenance. With our expertise and attention to detail, we ensure that your marketplace will always run smoothly, stay up to date and be free of any technical issues.
We kick off the marketplace website development process with a discovery phase lasting from 1 to 3 months. This is where we dive deep into the subject matter, determine the type of marketplace our client wants to create (be it a product or service-based), identify their target audience (whether it's consumers or other businesses), and outline the desired functionality. Additionally, we identify any potential roadblocks and devise strategies to overcome them. This method is advantageous for businesses as it allows them to validate their ideas without a significant financial investment. Once we clearly understand the project's complexity, we can provide our clients with more precise time and cost estimates. By taking this approach, our clients can feel confident that their project is in good hands and that we have a thorough understanding of their needs. Our discovery team comprises seasoned specialists, including business analysts, UI/UX designers, and technical architects. Each plays a vital role in driving the discovery process and delivering successful results for the client.
Our UX/UI design team is dedicated to crafting visually appealing and user-friendly marketplaces that give businesses an edge over their rivals with similar offers. Once we have a solid understanding of the project's essential requirements, our designers begin working on wireframes and style options. These rough sketches depict the layout of elements on a webpage without any color or branding. As soon as they are ready, we suggest our clients start development. Our practice shows parallel UI design creation and development processes going efficiently together. It helps clients save precious resources: time and money. Next, wireframes are transformed into interactive prototypes, allowing for an initial user experience. If the clients approve the prototypes, they serve as the foundation for the final UI design. In this way, we can ensure that the final product will be one that not only looks great but also provides an intuitive and seamless user experience.
At Linkup Studio, we adhere to the Agile methodology. This approach benefits our clients and development team as it allows us to minimize risks and consistently deliver high-quality software solutions on time. The development follows an Agile methodology with short, two-week sprints for efficient marketplace website creation. At the start of each sprint, we prioritize the tasks on our backlog, and our development team begins building the required functionality. We hold regular demonstration sessions to keep our clients informed of our progress and showcase completed work. Our quality assurance engineers then thoroughly test the functionality to ensure it is free of bugs. Once all bugs have been resolved, the functionality is deployed to production. This ensures that we can deliver a product that is not only of the highest quality but also delivered on time and within budget.
The launch of a high-quality custom marketplace website marks the final stage of the development process, where the software solution becomes available to both end-users and search engines. Once QA engineers have approved the last app version of the application, it is deployed to production. There are also options that we can first launch the MVP product version so clients can use it for their business goals, like making marketing campaigns to attract customers or showing it to investors further to raise funds. At that time, our team can continue to develop other product features. We offer the option to launch the MVP first, allowing clients to use it for business purposes, such as marketing campaigns to attract customers or presentations to investors to secure funding. At that time, our team will continue developing additional product features.
Our team of experts understands the significance of keeping businesses current and meeting customers' evolving demands. That's why we're dedicated to constantly improving and updating the solutions we offer and addressing any bugs that may arise. Our support and maintenance services are flexible to meet each client's unique needs. Our team's support period typically involves 40 hours of work per month. You can create a task backlog for our skilled development team to handle. If the task volume exceeds the support period's planned time, we will offer continued product development.

How Linkup’s Yacht Marketplace Won Red Dot Award
To get a growing marketplace website, businesses may choose a custom-developed marketplace rather than a pre-built platform. Some of the reasons include:
Customization: A custom-developed marketplace allows for complete customization to meet the specific needs and requirements of the business. This can include unique features and functionality unavailable on pre-built platforms.
Scalability: Custom-developed marketplaces can be built to scale as the business grows, whereas pre-built platforms may have limitations on how they can be scaled.
Branding: A custom-developed marketplace can be fully branded to match the look and feel of the business, helping to establish a consistent brand identity.
Integration: A custom-developed marketplace can be integrated with other systems and tools that the business already uses, such as accounting software or inventory management systems.
Security: Custom-developed marketplaces can be built with the latest security protocols and features to protect sensitive customer and business data.
SEO: A Custom marketplace is SEO friendly and built with SEO best practices in mind, which can help to increase visibility and drive more traffic to the marketplace.
Cost-effective: In some cases, it may be more cost-effective to have a custom-developed marketplace rather than repeatedly paying for a pre-built platform.
The time it takes to build a marketplace website or app can vary depending on many factors, such as the size and complexity of the marketplace, the number of features and functionality required, and the resources available for the project.
On average, developing a fully functional online marketplace platform project can take several months to a year or more. The development process typically involves several stages: planning, design, development, testing, and deployment.
It's also important to consider the ongoing maintenance and updates required to keep the marketplace running smoothly and to add new features and functionality over time.
The cost of creating a custom marketplace can vary widely depending on many factors. Those are the size, complexity, the number of features and functionality required, and the resources available for the project.
The cost of a custom marketplace development can range from a few thousand dollars for a basic platform to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars for a more complex and feature-rich platform. You can check the cost of the projects in our Case Studies section.
