I am an entrepreneur with big App ideas, based in Johannesburg, South Africa. I work a full time job in a Call Center. Feeling a bit stuck and my creative eCommerce ideas are like monsters in my dreams, having sleepless night over them. I will be funding my App myself from my savings.
My app is similar to an online store. It will have to end-users. 1) Small/Medium business owners who cant afford to create mobile apps of their own, which the app will allow them to have their own space to advertise their goods and services they offer to the public. This will include videos, pictures, contact details, GPS location etc.. With an option to receive payments online (Planning to use existing service providers for this). 2) The consumers of the goods will must be able to search for businesses registered on the app, DM them and use other means off communication through the app. They must be able to read business profiles, reviews, view videos and profiles. They should also be able to share or recommend a store via a link to the app.
Users on both ends should be able to register, free version should allow for ads to be displayed and limit some features specified to both type of users. The paid version will remove ads and limitations to the app.
