- 2 roles. The users can participate in 2 roles: as an ordinary user who looks for some useful instructions where and how to buy something cheaper, and as an expert who is ready to share his / her knowledge.
- 2 product versions. It was identified that for the experts it would be preferable to work with the platform using PC. That is why it is necessary to create a web version for work via PC. For ordinary people there is no special difference how to look the Information. But it is obvious that they can do it not only out of home, but being absolutely everywhere. So, iit was decided to create a mobile application as well.
- Monetization for experts. The experеs should be motivated to spent their time by creating useful instructions. To reach this goal it is necessary to to come up with some functionality for experts to monetize their knowledge and time.
