Hello everyone.

 

I've been in Maxcheaters and the l2 scene in general for a long long time.

What has always been very clear to me is that the mxc marketplace has a problem. 

Even though it has a lot of traffic because it is maxcheaters after all, it is a bad user experience.

 

You are not able to search for things that are relevant to you, separate by smaller sections than the ones provided and overall it make a terrible UX.

 

Another problem is that people can't really stand out and get the exposure they really need.

People are having multiple topics bumping them all together, completely buring everyone unterneath them.

 

Introducing https://l2market.com the Marketplace as it should be.

 

I started working on this project just because i wanted a better way for myself to see what people are selling.

Keyword search and proper content separation is only the beginning.

Things like, algorithmic sorting of products and evenly distrubuted exposure will be the key features of L2Market.

 

I launched the site as a technical demo to a few people on July 28th. 

After many updates and improvements the site managed to generate more than 4000 page views.

This might not seem a lot but the site was low key until now.

 

The site also tries to utilize as many SEO technique as possible for organic traffic.

 

Ofcourse it is still very much on a pre-beta phase but it can only become better via usage and feedback.

 

 

So all you l2 sellers out there (adena sellers, l2j sellers, account sellers etc) please have a look at https://l2market.com and list your products.

 

Any feedback is welcome.

 

PS: I know that I utilized Google's meterial design to the ground.

For now you can reference images in the markdown editor from other sites. The reason i don't allow file uploading is hosting purposes really.

You can upload an image for yourself though.

Why do not you try using this system?


 

I had the same thoughts as you a few weeks ago, unfortunately because of "scammers" did not want to put forward

Because this isn't really an ecommerce site. It is more of a product listings site.

People can't buy items through the site. They can only find sellers. That's why i didn't choose to go with any ecommerce platform but build my own.

When you click on "buy" you enter a chat page between you and the seller

It can be something interesting.

I am planning to add chat functionality with the seller in an upcoming update

instead of chat, first i would standardize contact/web infos, so your product view will contain predefined space just for contacts

and make them clickable.. skype especially cuz using skype search is worst idea one could have :D

I was thinking of adding a set of options like email/skype/whatever and then the profiles will have links like "mailto:" and "skype:" or whatever.

The chat is by no means in my foreseeable future todo list.

 

Currently im working on shortlisting products

some more (didnt make account to test logged-in changes)

- username is not linked in product view

- we lack useful metadata in profile details - registration date, last activity time

- category badge below username in Search view looks bad, you got all packed on the left, while right side is just empty

- product view should contain info when it was added to the website

- option to report abuse for profile/product

- something more eye candy than generic bootstrap look

- own favicon :D
