This is how Cuspy engineers designed a custom ecommerce marketplace that supports 1.5+ mln products, 400+ categories, and 100+ merchants
Allmega was a successful Polish web store selling a wide range of goods, from electronics and household equipment to baby products and cosmetics.
Allmega wanted to expand their ecommerce business and create a large online marketplace. That is why they turned to Cuspy Software for the experience in the ecommerce domain and custom SaaS development.
Cuspy Software grew the team of Allmega with 4 senior developers, a QA engineer, a UI/UX designer, and a project manager well versed in ecommerce — to orchestrate the efforts of the team. In 24 months, Cuspy experts came up with the following deliverables:
• Software architecture and technology stack allowing the solution to handle high user load and an extensive product catalog.
• Custom ecommerce marketplace that has more than 1.5 mln products and 400 categories to date, and aggregates data from over 100 merchants.
