The Elephant in the Room
For a new company trying to enter New Zealand market & compete the monopoly
What's so bad about monopoly
A successful industry is competitive, with a number of manufacturers or distributors of products and services (online and physical) all striving to attract customers. Vigorous competition requires businesses to strive to lower their prices and improve the quality of their products and services. Competition stimulates firms to lower their own costs and run their businesses as efficiently as possible. This brings in innovation and the most creative one wins. Competition also reduces the need for governmental interference through regulation of business.
How is BigMarket different ?
$0 SUCCESS FEE & $0 LISTING FEE
Bigmarket has no success fee and no listing fee. Yes, it is free.
Advantages of an Architecturally Strong Platform are numerous and helps in reducing ‘man hours’ needed to develop, maintain and grow the software product.
Take a feature like Google maps Street View currently available to all listing under category ‘Property’. This can be made available to a different category like say, ’Flatmate Wanted’ by simply updating the configuration of the category ’Flatmate Wanted’ with absolutely no change to the program. It can be done by a person who doesn’t know computer programming.
All of a sudden all listings under the category ‘Flatmate Wanted’ will show a Street View of its address. The amount of work required by us to make such a change is not comparable to that required by any typical old fashioned website.

WELL STRUCTURED CATEGORIES
Bigmarket has a very well structured list of categories which can be changed or new categories can be added easily. The platform is easily extendable meaning adding a new category like ‘garage sale’ is very easy.
Cloud based, Highly scalable (Amazon Web Services, MongoDB, Node.js server) Restful APIs, oAuth, Angular 5. Single source code for Android, iOS and Web. BigMarket is built on Hybrid App and our mobile applications are Single Page Application(SPA) running on Angular 5. All we need is an update in our codebase(one and only) which is a single person job which will reflect on all the platforms.
Bigmarket is fully transparent. Since bigmarket doesn't take success fee, there is no need for bigmarket to keep the seller information hidden. Both buyers and sellers can give/receive feedback.
BUYER & SELLER FEEDBACK
