    Hi Julie,

    The plugin has only the option to configure “End Date”. If you add an auction, it makes it live instantly.

    Would be interested to know why are you looking for not having to start right away? Is there any business use-case or just need this option for convenience.

    It’ll help me see if it can be added in future updates if its useful.

    Thanks,
    Nitesh

    Hi Nitesh,

    Client has an online auction that their clients wait for until a certain day; however they can check daily what horses are going to go to the auction now until January 31st when the auction ends, but yet the auction does not actually start until January 1st. Main reason is then all horses start the auction at the same time and end at the same time.

    Thanks,

    Julie

    Hi Julie,

    Its a peculiar scenario & generally we don’t require “when to start” function for regular auctions. So it wont serve value. In your case, one workaround is that you can try making the auction live on the same day on which you want to auction it.

    Cheers,
    Nitesh

    I could also use this feature. I’m looking at the plugin to run a fundraiser auction for my son’s school. We will be collecting donated items over six months. Volunteers will be entering the items as they have time, but the auction won’t actually start for many months. Once we have some entered we would want them available as a preview and to build interest in the auction. It will also help with donations from local businesses if they see their competitors have already donated items or services.
    Thank you!

    WordPress has a function to schedule a page or post to be published at some point in the future.

    Oh, Paul, I’m the webmaster for my children’s school and we’re doing an online auction as well, ours starts in 2 days!

    We have customized this plugin after many hours to allow our auction items to appear online; however the bidding starts on the date and time that we pick verses the day we create the auction listing. 🙂

    Hi Julie,

    Great to hear that. In-case you wanna share it with community, do let me know.

    This would be a useful feature for our use as well. Hopefully Julie can share the code!

    Hello,

    Nitsh Singh I paid for your plugin and then did additional customization for days. My job is customizing plugins and website for clients; as well as marketing and it’s not just a few lines of code to share and that’s why I’m not sharing the info online here. I know you are not supposed to market your services here either; however [… marketing message removed by moderator]
