The Peppaca.com 1.0 was launched with basic marketplace features to help artisans worldwide open their handicraft stores at Peppaca.com.

Function modules include customer management(both buyer and seller), product management 1.0, order management 1.0, shipping system 1.0, and payment system 1.0.

Peppaca 1.0 allows the sellers smoothly to operate on product listing, editing, updating, and searching..., etc. The basic shopping cart functions allow the buyers and sellers to start online transactions globally right away.

The Peppaca 1.0 was built on CodeIgniter framework with Php, MySQL, Javascript, and Javascript Libraries.

In 2019, our CEO, Steve, started a trip with our CTO, Wayne, to visit his long-time close friend, a passionate artisan living in China. He told Steve and Wayne the stories and inspirations behind his artwork. Despite his talents and hard work, Steve's friend planned to quit because the work was not enough to support him for a good living.

Steve was upset with his friend's idea. He started to think about finding a way to help his friend and other artists like his friend.

Over time since then, Steve talked to handmade artists from different countries to understand what he should do to support their passions, creations, and art-form. Steve learned that artists around the globe have all been facing similar issues. The lack of established, global, and handmade D2C platforms reduces artists' products exposure, profitability, and recognition.

Steve decided to form a team to build PEPPACA, a professional, user-friendly, and seller-centric marketplace for unique, handmade artistry on March 15th, 2019.

Peppaca is not just a global marketplace for genuine handmade craftsmanship, also a bridge to let buyers worldwide hear the stories and inspirations behind each amazing handmade creation and recognize the unique culture of each artisanal seller who is trying to tell.

Peppaca platform's vision is to "deliver a story and tell a culture"
