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!

    We had some old company cars and we didn't want to send them to the trash so we decided to use this in our advantage and was our best idea. Thanks YITh for the support and for the kind replies

    There's still room for improvement but it's goodBeing able to offer the possibility to bid on products helps to make users much more interested in the product they are buying and this is why I loved this plugin when I tested it online. Yet, there is still room for improvement in this plugin, like offering priority to pro members.

    Hi there!

    At the moment its only possible to group the list of the auction product in a membership and only the customers have this membership can access the product.

    In combination with our YITH WooCommerce Membership Premium.

    and is it possible to hide the bid list, even in the administration panel?
    Yes, its possible. If you open a ticket, the developers can help you.

    Hi Dempo,

    yes, this can be done by combing Auctions plugin with YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor. Multi Vendor will turn your shop into a marketplace, where every vendor can upload their own products and the income will be divided between the admin and the vendor according to the share percentage you set. 

    The combined use of YITH Multi Vendor and YITH Auctions allows you to offer an auction system to all the vendors in your store. Vendors will be able to handle:

    • price
    • backup price
    • required amount for a rise
    • auction length
    • a chance to automatically schedule the next auction for each product

    Hi Daniel!

    At the moment it is not possible to build an auction site using "penny auctions". However, our developers will study the possibility to create an integration with points and rewards and use the points for bidding.

    Hola, Marcos! I am afraid it is not possible, I am sorry. When creating an auction product, the stock quantity is 1 (1 auction = 1 product).

    Hello there,

    automatically no, but the admin can delete the bids manually.

    Regards.
