YITH Auctions for WooCommerce

What the plugin does You will implement an auction system on your store similar to eBay.
How I can benefit from it:
  • You will benefit from an effective model business catching the eye of those customers who usually take part in auctions to get products at advantageous prices;
  • You will sell unique and refined products without diminishing their market value by setting a minimum start price to increase the profit margin;
  • You will take advantage of the scarcity and competition principles to offer an ad hoc product, such as a custom or out-of-stock item, that your customers will perceive as unmissable.

How do you get a whole queue of people competing to buy your products?

Do you know what an online auction is?

I bet you do, and you probably already considered selling products on the Ebay network, the number one name in the field who built an empire on this method of sales and got millions of people used to buying online for their best offers, taking part in a sort of race to the purchase.

Users who are interested in auctions are moved by the chance to get items at low prices and motivated to make a bid which in most cases turns into an immediate raise as soon as they are outbid.

Auctions are simple: anybody can place a bid for a specific product and if no other bid exceeds the previous one, then they win the item.

This allows buyers to grab products for their best price and allows vendors to generate a profit sometimes bigger than anticipated.

Using our YITH WooCommerce Auction plugin you will not only be able to make auctions for your products, but thanks to the integration of our YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor you will have the chance to create a real portal for online auctions, allowing all of your vendors to create auctions of their own and letting you earn a share on each one of their sales.

A truly performing sales system in which buyers will be able to:

  • Set up automatic raises
  • Buy items right away using the “Buy now” function
  • Look into every single auctions, including old ones
  • Look into the list of people interested in each auction

And much more!

    Pre-authorization is a must-have featureI bought this plugin convinced that it was possible to authorize the user's card at the very moment they make a bid, and then charge only the auction winner, but this option is not supported. I can use the plugin, however, yes, but it's missing an important feature. Adding it would really make THE difference!

    Took some time but now it works like a trainI like this plugin, and that it's possible to have automatic raises of the bidding, it was a shame that it wasn't integrated with product vendors, but as it is with you guys YITH multi vendor plugin I just switched to that it took some time but now it is all set-up

    You can make it even better than it is nowNice plugin, with good features, but still I think you can add more, like the possibility for the admin to choose the winner, which is essential for my system

    Hello Oleg,

    and thanks for your suggestions. At the moment, we can't add a reverse option to the plugin, but we will consider your precious feedback. The same applies to the integration with YITH Product Add-ons, we will pass your feedback over to the plugin developers so they can consider this for future improvements.

    Hello Paul,

    no, unfortunately, the plugin does not include a feature to assign the auction to the second high bidder, but you can do that manually. You can:

    1. Remove the winner from the auction. This way the second person in the list will become the winner.
    2. Send the winner email to the new winner.

    Hi, Damian! The plugin has an option to postpone the expiration if someone makes a new bid some minutes before the auction ends. For further details about this feature, you can refer to this section of the official documentation.

    Hello Ryan,

    yes, you can see the current higher big just below the product when it shows on the Shop page. You can see how it looks like here

    Also, if you open the product page, you can see all the bids that have been posted so far, as you can see on this sample product.

    Hello Andreas,

     

    if the winner doesn't pay, there is no problem. The admin can schedule again the auction or remove the top bid auction and the second highest bid will be the auction winner.

     

    Regards:)
