How it works

magento auction extension | how it works

Detailed Features

Displaying auctions on a separate page

A separate auction listing page is created on your site so Customers can easily find detailed information about all available auctions, including start price, current price, number of bids, time left, etc.

magento auction extension | listing pages

Bid options

There are 2 bid options: Standard Bid and Auto Bid. Customers can use the Auto bid function so they don’t have to keep coming back to re-bid every time when someone places another bid.

“Going, going and gone” auction feature

At the close time of each online auction, you can set an amount of extended time which will appear and count down. Anyone places a bid during that time will make it reset, count down again. The process keeps repeating until there is a winner. It reproduces a real auction when the auctioneer says “going, going, gone”.

magento auction extension | going and going feature

Reserve price

An auction can start at a low price to generate interest and bidding of potential bidders, but the item will not be sold unless the bidding reaches the minimum price - namely Reserve Price - that you set before. This feature protects you from having to sell your item at a price that you feel too low.

Following auctions’ status

Customers can add any auction they interested to a watching list to receive notification emails about the status of each auction. Transactions related to an auction can be viewed in My Account page.
