Auction extension allows the store owner to sell the products on auction sale. Multiple customers can make a bid on the auctioned product and buy it at a competitive market price. Four types of auctions can be created - standard, incremental, automatic, and reserve price. 

The wallet system is available for receiving the security deposit for the auction. This will be the percentage of the total bid amount. From the backend configuration, multiple options are available for every auction type. Further email notifications are sent to the store admin, outbid, buyer and winner. On the storefront, the buyers can view the auction details on the product page and submit a bid easily. If won, the page will display the winning message, after that the buyer can proceed to checkout.

Note - This module will only work with simple, virtual, and downloadable product types.

 

Business Value

Bidding is an important feature of online selling. It allows the customers to bid on the products and buy them at competitive prices. With auction sale, sellers can do online auctioning for antiques, paintings, rare collectibles, and other expensive items. The admin can add/edit auctions and manage auction easily.

Let’s take a scenario wherein you’re selling paintings. Now, to sell these types of items, creating an online auction sale is the best choice. You don’t need a physical location, saves time and money, and receive instant feedback. Also, online auction enables buyers to send their offers conveniently from any place. Not only your products get wide attention worldwide but also you be able to generate high returns, as products are sold to the highest bidder.

One of the best examples of an online auctioning is eBay, that allows multiple buyers to bid against each other by offering competitive prices for the product. Using auction extension you can enable the bidding feature on your product and sell the items to the buyer who offers the best price.

They can add auction on their products by entering a starting price for the auction, Start and stop bidding date and time, automatic bidding, and incremental price. They can manage the auction by editing/deleting the existing auction.

 

Standard Auction

The admin can enable or disable the standard auction, show/hide current bid price, bidder name, auction price, auction details, winner message, and auction rule.

 

Incremental Auction

The admin can decide and set the incremental price range as per the need. To set and add the incremental price range, the admin can click on the set incremental price range and decide the incremental price for every individual price range.

Even the admin can also delete the created incremental price. Furthermore, the admin can enable or disable the incremental auction.
