Hello Alex, Thank you for your interest in our extension however it supports Magento platform only, we do not have a version working on Wordpress. You can look for Wordpress plugins provider, they may provide the plugin you need. Best regards, Magestore.

Hello raoul, Thank you for your interest in our extension. Unfortunately at this moment auction only support simple product. About downloadable product, we will consider it for the future update. Best regards, Magestore.
Do you guys happen to have a version of this that works on Wordpress? I've got a couple of other sites I don't want to move to Magento (rather my customers do not) and This seems like a perfect solution for them versus the current stuff we're using.
downloadable or custom products not working
Any chance that this can be made possible. We are looking for the option to sell downloadable products via an auction.

Hi Marcelo, Unfortunately our current version of Auction hasn't support the feature to allow admin to creat order for winner. However we noted it and will consider updating it in the future. Best regards, Magestore.

Reply to Pascal
Hi Pascal, Thank you for your interest in our Auction module. Regarding your question, I’m sorry that the current version of Auction hasn’t support placing auction items in different categories. All of them are shown in the auction listing page. We’ll note the feature you mentioned in our updates list and will inform you when it’s available in the future. Best regards, Magestore
Are there any plans for an update in the near future with new features? And before I buy this extension I have one other question. Is it possible to place one auction item in, for example, a category shirts and another auction item in category boots etc. Or are all auction items in one overview?
Reply to Greg
Hi Greg, regarding your question, yes it's possible to do so. Please look through the installation userguide for more details. Thank you. Best regards, Magestore
Hello I need to install auction on my computer for the development (offline) It is possible? thank you
Reply to Eric
Hi Eric, thank you for your interest in Magestore extension. Regarding your questions, our magento auction extension is able to meet all your needs. For example, the “going, going and gone” feature allows if anyone places a bid during auction time will make it reset exprired time and count down again; the process keeps repeating until there is a winner. You can find more information in this userguide https://www.magestore.com/index.php/productfile/index/view/fileid/58/ Best regards, Magestore

Hi Suresh, Thank you for your interest in our Auction extension. About the matter you mentioned, we're sorry that the template for auction view is set according to your product view pages. We might consider this function in future updates. If you have other questions, we're glad to assist you. Best regards, Magestore
Separate Templates for Auction View and Product View Pages
Hi Can we create separate templates for both auction view and product view pages?
Hello, just a question: it is possible to manage a penny auction by using your component? I need a system to increase auction duration each time a user make a new bid. I also need to fix a specific price for bid. For example 1 penny for each bid. Thank you Eric
Mail template's, no sorting function
Working plugin, no ability to sort the items properly though. And where are the mail template's located?
Reply to Domenico
Hi Domenico, I am afraid that our extension does not have this feature at this time. However, we will consider about it in the next update of Auction module. Hope you kindly understand!

Reply to Alexander
Hi Alexander, Thank you for your suggestion! Currently our extension does not allow customers to create auctions. Just store-admins can do that. However, we will consider and try to update this function in the next version of Auction extension. Best Regards, Magestore
Auctions from customers?
Hello I have see that only the admin cans make new auctions. I search a module for a website looks like this one www.ricardo.ch with the same features Can you extended please! Best regards
Reply to Yacoub
Hi Yacoub, Thank you for your interest in our Auction extension. The current version of this extension just allows admins to create auctions in back-end. It has not supported customers in adding auctions. Regards,
Add auctions by customers
Can customers add the auctions or just the adminstrator?
Reply to Thomas Klaiber
Hi Thomas, Thank you for your review. We are so sorry but currently our extension has not supported reverse auction yet. We will consider and try to update it in the next version of this extension. Regards,
Is it possible to add reverse auctions? In this case the lowest price wins at the end.
Reply to José
Hi José, Regarding your questions, there is a translation file in the package, allowing you to translate the module into any language, including Portuguese. About the function of controlling commissions of business, we are sorry but our extension is not relevant to commission. Best Regards, Magestore
You have version in Portuguese Brazil? The software has control of commissions of business closed?
Engage your customers
If you want to engage your customers in nice manner then perhaps this is a good way to give them a leverage to make offer for different products and surely it helps to sell products more quickly in most of the cases.
Stellar extension! Does exactly what is advertises, and does it well. Had a very minor question (where to edit "Auction" -> "Auctions" on the front end), and heard back from tech support in about an hour.
Very good support
This module was exactly what we needed, and it works great. Very good support: MageStore put a lot of effort into helping us solve problems we had after upgrade.
Very good extension
Jordy van Overeem
Very good extension, does works how i want it to work. After some customization it's perfect for the use of my customer. Had some problems with some settings, but MageStore replied fast and helped me out very good, thank you!
Reply to Allard
Hi Allard, I have just checked the issue that you reported, however I don't face it with our site. Please explain more details of your issue to our support system in http://support.magestore.com/. It's really great if could provide some screenshots. Hope you understand and cooperate much. Thank you. Best Regards, Magestore
Nice Module but some bugs. please help
When I press "next page" on the auction page then completely different non-auction products are shown.
I was going through the demo site and found an issue, product auction is displaying on the product details page after change the status of auction to complete from processing.
The system works brilliantly
The system works brilliantly. I wanted a few tweaks to make it fit my requirements perfectly and their help and support in getting this done is simply brilliant. Always fast and friendly responses, and quick turnarounds on all support queries. I highly recommend Magestore!
Great extension for setting flexible ebay-familiar auctioning system on product details page. Very powerfull.
Works great and the only issues I had where strictly cosmetic and yet they still took the time to help me. the response was quick and correct the first time. Would recommend this product to anyone wanting better control of their store... I also installed 2 other programs from them and those installed and ran great as well.
So far this has been an easy install and manipulation to run on our site. when I had a question I got a quick and proper response that fixed it the first time, not the trouble shooting steps like other companies. Will continue to use their products and look forward to working more with them in the future.
Reply to Marcelo
Hi Marcelo, Thank you for your question. Our extension currently does not support this function, however, this is indeed a good idea. We will add this to the list of possible update versions. Thank you and hope you are satisfied with our products. Best Regards, Magestore
Perfect! Very easy to use!
Thank you, guys! You are doing a great job. The Auction extention works just perfect. It is very easy to use. I am very satisfied with this extention and with your, guys, service and help.
I forgot to ask... I can use auctions on filter search?
I was looking for auction module, but Magestore is the only one that fits my need out-of-the-box. It really looks good and allows the auction css to be modified just like the store admin wants.

Hat off to Magestore
This new kind of selling product drives more traffic to my store, as well as customers. Customers seem to be excited and leave good comments. Your extension by far is the easiest to use and configure. So someone who has little IT knowledge like me can easily install. And when I have issue, your immediate support makes me relieved :D (I'm especially impressed by your friendly supporters: Neo, Michael)
Perfect Solution for B2B
I test Auction trial version. This is the super Auction for Magento . I install extension quick and all is ok.
At the starting point, I had a few bugs with the module but Magestore fixed them right after I sent them an email. The module is working like a charm now. This is a great experience for me. Thanks Magestore for your products and services!
This is the perfect extension to add auctions to a Magento site. It is easy to install, does what it says, and equally as important is the "second to none" support. I had a few questions and minor issues, and the response to my needs was fantastic!!! Do not hesitate to use this product if you have the need.
We bought this extension and got it installed properly. Satisfied!
