Hi guys, Im new at IH and new to this whole maker thing. I have had a few ideas in my career but I have never actually built one.
Why? Because I always think that my Idea is the same thing as other product/app/company.
Is this a bad thing?
I want to build an app where shopping stores can bring their products and sell them online using their own payment gateway. Without them having to worry about code, servers, domains, maintenance, updates, traffic... etc
But then, here it comes... Is this WooComerce? Shopify? Gumroad? Amazon? Ebay? 🤔
... yes but no.
It looks like a problem other products are already solving. Is there room for improvement? Can I make something different?.. I think I can
Sometimes it feels like copying other peoples products, like copying the same thing others do, like stealing ideas. But sometimes I think that It can be just another option in the market and that is not a bad thing. It's just competition.
In the end, I always think every idea has already been solved or has a product trying to solve it. Like having (spotify,deezer) (youtube, vimeo) (aws,azure) (stripe,braintree)...
What do you guys think?
