We created a web application dedicated to the purchase and sale of used car parts. After sign in, users can easily search between different offers and find the exact car part they are looking for. They can also add an item for sale. The platform enables real-time communication with sellers and buyers and a convenient payment system.

Our client wanted to build an online platform for used car parts marketplace. The product was targeted at people having trouble finding the right car parts on the web. Buying car parts online is usually associated with the fear of paying too much for poor quality. Delays in contact together with an insufficient amount of information and a limited range of items, make the online purchase risky and often unsatisfying.
The platform had to be credible, intuitive, and allow buyers and sellers for free communication. It was to solve the issue of credibility by building a trustworthy community and offering an intuitive dashboard to request quotes from sellers.
The main use of the platform was to enable users to purchase car parts and place items for sale. The dashboard is where users would see all the offers with status updates in real-time. After clicking on an offer, users would get more information about an item and its price.
We decided to create a web application with a built-in chat system to enable real-time communication between users. We placed the message section on the navigation menu from where a user could easily notice incoming inquiries.
When it comes to payments, we gave users an option to choose one of the payment methods and handle the transaction via the application. Then the purchase would be monitored on the transaction details section where users can see the order summary.
The functionality of the platform was about to be expanded in the future to allow users to also sell garages and cars. Having that in mind we were thinking about the way in which we would help the sellers manage different requests. We decided to create a side list of transactions on the dashboard area where every inquire would have its own reference number. That would greatly facilitate the sending of quotes.
"As I’m interested in the automotive industry myself, it was very easy for me to identify with a customer in an attempt to build a great user experience."
The dashboard shows all the placed offers with the status updated in real-time. Users can either search and buy the needed items or placed car parts they want to sell through the platform.
The auto parts exchange app is a credible source of items and allows for easy comparison of prices of used car parts.
The built-in chat system enables buyers to send offer request to sellers. The sellers can immediately see the inquire on the message icon and easily respond to it.
The web application is integrated with a secured payment system that allows users to decide on a payment method and settle transactions conveniently through the platform.
The product gained hundreds of positive customer reviews and we successfully met all the needs of the target user. After one month the auto parts exchange app had 1300 registered user-profiles and now generates over 500 monthly transactions. We consider the app as the ultimate place for people wanting to buy or sell car parts, without the need to double-check the offer or the seller’s credibility.
