We were given to opportunity to design and build a multi-vendor services marketplace for I Know A Guy SA, an established online community wherein its members trade recommendations and services.
The required functionality was for a platform that could act as both a directory for recommended service providers and a marketplace in which users could post jobs for service providers to bid on.
The platform was built on WordPress 5.5, incorporating custom scripting to achieve the required functionality. Payment processing was done using Payfast integration.
