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 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.
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.
