About: Custom Marketplace Development Using Formidable Forms

Introduction:

Wemulch.com is an online platform designed to connect end-users with forestry or land-clearing professionals for vegetation and land management jobs. The company’s main goal is to help users find reliable and affordable professionals to manage their land sustainably.

Challenge:

The company faced several challenges before contacting our company Desol Int. They needed a system that would allow end-users to post jobs for environmental management, farms, hunting, forestry, residential, and commercial tasks also they wanted the end users to hire these professionals through the same platform. The system had to be user-friendly, reliable, and scalable, to handle a large volume of job postings and professionals.

Solution:

To address the challenges faced by wemulch.com, we proposed to develop a marketplace using formidable forms, PHP, WordPress, jQuery, and Ajax technologies.

The marketplace was designed to work in the following way: an end-user posts a job after filling out the job form. Once the job form is successfully submitted, the job offer goes into the listing, and users can hire professionals from the same system.

The development process started with creating the job form using formidable forms, which allowed for the creation of a customized job form with various input fields, including job type, location, area, details, general, job description, pictures, and budget. This form was designed to be user-friendly, and end-users could easily fill it out and submit their job postings.

Next, the backend was developed using PHP and WordPress, which allowed for the creation of a powerful and scalable system that could handle a large volume of job postings and job listings. The system was designed to be easy to use, with a simple and intuitive user interface that allowed for the creation of job listings and professional profiles.

The system allows professionals to apply for jobs posted by end-users. The professional can search for jobs based on the job type, location, and estimated budget. The professional can review the job details and apply for the job. The end-user can review the professional’s profile, including their ratings and reviews, before hiring them.
