Today, E-Commerce, in terms of Consumer-to-Consumer (C2C) business model, has ventured its way into smartphones due to the significant increase in smartphone users, and studies have shown that iOS users are 30% more likely to make a purchase on their device. The main purpose of this project is to develop an iOS application called DealsInterest that provides a platform for users to sell their firsthand or secondhand products. The application comprises of e-commerce, social networking and information sharing features. It also allows sellers and buyers to communicate with each other publicly, using the product commenting feature, or privately, using the private chat with push notification feature.

It allows sellers to post their products and gain appropriate coverage easily. The project consists of a backend server, which handles all the information to and fro from the Android application and the iOS application. The backend server also provides the functionalities necessary in order for the mobile applications to function as stated in the requirements. Most of the features of the application is successfully implemented on iOS platform and the iOS application is deployed and distributed to testers using a third party platform called TestFlight.
