eCommerce Application For Image/Video Purchase For Media CompaniesImages & videos eCommerce site
- OS: Azure
- Server Side Language: ASP.NET
- Client Side Technology: JQuery
- Architecture: MVC
We have developed an e-Commerce website in which Contributors upload images and videos which are relevant for news purpose.
The Admin approves the images and videos and sets the price for each image/video. The Media Users/Companies purchase these images and videos for their publications and the Contributors are paid for the images and videos uploaded by them.
This project had a simple requirement but with a unique concept for news industry. The application had to handle large and bulky image and video files which would go on increasing with the popularity of the application. The system thus had to be robust and scale-able with utmost security.
We used Azure blob storage to serve following purposes:
- Serving images or documents directly to a browser
- Storing files for distributed access
- Streaming video and audio
- Storing data for backup and restore, disaster recovery, and archiving
- Storing data for analysis by an on-premises or Azure-hosted service
The app was created successfully with features to upload images/videos, admin approval and price settings, stripe and PayPal payment gateways integration.
