Steps to build a marketplace

A collaborative and iterative process

A tested methodology spanning 50+ projects


Functional Specifications

This document thoroughly details the entire functional scope of your platform and serves as a comprehensive roadmap for the rest of the project. It allows us together to define and better understand the product you’ll be receiving, how much time it will take to develop and its cost. This is our first opportunity to demonstrate our expertise. See an example

Production launch

A project manager is assigned to your project and acts as your single point of contact. The production schedule is validated and the relevant ressources are allocated to your project.

Wireframe design

Based on your specifications, the wireframes are barebones models used to define user interfaces and use cases. This allows us to confirm that the user experience will be optimal and that the entire feature set you require is present. See an example

Graphic Design

Our design skills go hand in hand with our knowledge of functional web design and marketplace ideation. Working from your wireframes our team of designers builds both an image and an experience which are fully in line with your business.

Code work

Built on top of what Cocorico already has to offer, our development team customizes your marketplace exactly as required. Our production methodology helps us maintain the highest quality and maintainability of your code. 

Quality control

Your project manager not only ensures continuous quality control on deliverables, he also carries out and enforces a major quality control once all the deliverables are ready. Only once greeenlighted by your PM is your complete project presented to you for final validation.

Live launch & hosting

Your marketplace is hosted on the server of your choice (it’s your marketplace after all). You can insource future developments or outsource to us alongside the majority of our customers.

Maintenance et évolutions


We help you select the best candidates and train your teams.

Prefer to outsource to us?

A la carte or by means of a maintenance contract we are at your side throughout the lifetime of your marketplace.

Think big and think long term. With Cocorico you retain full ownership of your marketplace and the ability to outsource or insource as needed.
