YITH Auctions for WooCommerce

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.

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

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!

    Any issues are very hard to resolveWorks pretty good out of the box.

    We had a few issues and couldn't get them resolved even with support.

    I needed to see a list of available hooks and attributes. I was told that no, this is not available online but I was welcome to ask them anything via email. So if I need to code something I have to wait a day or more every time I need to look something up.

    Second, I needed to find a way to see how to manage the email notifications that go out. Support had no answer to that either.

    So it's pretty good, just if you need anything that's not literally on at install you're going to have a frustrating day.

      Hi Marc,
      we are really sorry to read that you are not satisfied with the plugin. We have given you the support you ask for in the support ticket, but it was left unreplied for a while and it closed automatically.
      We don't have developer documentation, but our supporters are available for any questions, as they showed in the past tickets.
      About emails, we don't see any mention to emails in the tickets. However, you can find the documentation here (http://docs.yithemes.com/yith-woocommerce-auctions/premium-version-settings/email/), and ask our developers if you have any questions about how to use them.
      Please, submit a new one, if the older one closed, we will be glad to help you!

    Hi, Adam! For the time being, there is no way to block bids. However, our developers are just working on a Blacklist feature to prevent specific customers from making bids on your shop. This feature will be added to one of the next updates.
