This contest has ended, but you can join our current contest.

Our challenge is to take your favorite ecommerce platform and make it better, solve a problem or add some functionality, using Nexmo's Verify or Number Insight. You could add second factor authentication to the login, allow users to check their order status just using a phone number, or evaluate fraud based geographic location tied to the users phone number compared to their billing or shipping address.

It can be a service based platform like Shopify, or a software based paltform like Magento - your submission can be for any platform that is open for extensions, integrations, or plugins. All submissions must be opensource and on github, because we want developers to see how useful these APIs are. 

Nexmo Verify makes it easy to verify phone numbers for second factor login, or for validating user provided data. Nexmo Number Insight provides data about a phone number - carriers, roaming status, and more.
