Instacart clone : How would you build a geofenced hyperlocal ecommerce without any magento or shopify ?



  • Instacart clone : How would you build a geofenced hyperlocal ecommerce without any magento or shopify ?

    I have done some research on schema.io motlin sphere.io and a few other api's

    Let me know if you think its better to go all from scratch.



  • Pardon my limited knowledge. But I assume its a website and not a mobile based end product. If its website, then what is the point of geofencing? If its mobile, then platforms like Parse make it really easy.

    When building a v0 product, I would never advise to build from scratch, but rather build using existing tools and see if the product proves the point. If it does and it grows, you will, at some point in time, rewrite everthing from scratch, module by module. Ofcourse exceptions would be if you are building platforms/APIs which I think should be built from scratch.
