A CASE STUDY
BidWinFun, a penny auction company, chose Chetu to create their web & mobile penny auction site through the Magento 2 platform.
BidWinFun is traditional domestic online penny auction website with a mobile presence. They auction off brand new merchandise for pennies on the dollar to whomever wins the bid. They needed an E-Commerce website that could handle a traditional auction but was able to perform online quickly. The auctions take just a couple hours at most. This site would also need to serve thousands of auctions everyday.
BidWinFun first learned about Chetu during a Vegas technology convention where Chetu showcased their industry knowledge & experience with penny auction sites through the Magento E-Commerce platform. The software development would need a responsive adaptive design in the web application that would render perfectly on mobile devices as well.
With Chetu's large talent pool of on-demand developers, industry knowledge, and as a Magento Business Solutions partner it was a perfect fit to get the online auction site up and running.
The Magento web application was created with the features of any traditional penny auction website. Such functionalities as onboarding members, allowing them to buy bid packs and to place bids on ongoing auctions. It's a typical bidding situation where there is a timer, people place bids in competition against each other, and when the timer expires the highest bidder wins the prize.
Chetu also developed the Magento web application to include a help guide for winning bids. The application provides 3 different levels of paid membership which could be purchased & cancelled at anytime.
The development environment incorporated PHP 7.2 as server side scripting language, Magento 2.3.1 as the framework, HTML for creating web pages, MySQL 5.x for database support, GIT for Version Control Management, and Magento Membership & Auction Plug-ins.
BidWinFun's target audience for their penny auction site is geared towards individuals who enjoy the thrill of shopping, auctions, and entertainment. Their business model aligns closely around casino style environments.
BidWinFun needed a software development company that had previous experience with penny auction websites, were certified with the Magento platform, and were affordable. This led them to choose Chetu for their Magento Commerce software development.
Chetu brings years of industry experience & professionalism to the table. Being a certified Magento Business Solutions Partner enables their developers to stay ahead on the newest software trends to provide the highest level of services for their clients.
