Creating marketplace using buddypress
I’m setting up a marketplace website at the moment and was wondering if you guys have any ideas of how to do this using buddypress.
We are creating a website to match clients with carers. It will be similar to airbnb and people per hour. We would like the following features:
Clients and carers to create different types of profiles then be able to find each other
We want to be able to give carers a username and password, as they will need to apply to us first before being able to create a profile.
We want filters for them to search for each other (such as for gender/date available) – we have already installed BP Profile for this
We want to be able to hide the clients from the carers if we want to. Or have the feature like people per hour where clients can post a job if they want to or contact the carers privately without posting a job.
Payment gateway is an optional extra, we would be taking 10% of what the carers get paid but we could invoice this separately.
We’re using buddypress at the moment for the profiles but you might have another idea for this such as some marketplace plugin (Maybe not the right thing to ask on a buddypress forum!)
I’ve been in touch with a couple of developers in India and they are saying it’s a lot more than 50 hours work. Surely there has got to be an easier way. We want the bare minimum needed for carers to create profiles, then clients to look through and contact them.
Any ideas would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
