Awesome plugin to host auctions on your wordpress site and sell anything you want.
I used the free version for a while but decided I needed Pro to fit all my requirements. I had a few problems getting set-up the way I wanted but was able to get some responses from Support that solved the issue very quickly.
The plugin is very comprehensive, obviously it does have limitations, after all it is only a plugin! But it has filled all of my needs so far and overall I couldn't be happier.
Of all the plugins I've tried, this one offers the most bang for the buck. It is feature-rich and has worked flawlessly for me. Nitesh has been very responsive and helpful.
In educating myself on how to use the plugin and make tweaks, I have learned that most of issues people have with this plugin are due to faults in their particular configuration and not the plugin itself.
I recommend this plugin to anyone wishing to avoid the usual big auction sites.
Thank you for the great plugin.
Surely upgrade to pro version soon.
Suggestion: Add Bitcoin and Escrow Payment option / User can by pay by 3rd party invoice.
When I first started out with this plugin, I used the Free version. It did everything I needed it to do at that time...but I quickly outgrew it. At that time, I gave a perfect review of the plugin.
I consider myself and advanced user of this plugin. I've been working on a project that has tested the most advanced aspects of this plugin. There are numerous smaller issues that I discovered (not deal-breakers) that were so minor compared to the really big issues I discovered...I just said "ignore those" until the bigger issues are fixed.
Our first and only major auction to this point, was almost a complete disaster because of issues with Proxy Bidding and the plugins miscalculation of Time/Date. Had I not been available the day of the auction, the auction would have 100% bombed and I would have lost a client...or worse.
I agree, support is pretty amazing for the Free version. It's a completely different story after you've paid. I hope this review sparks some interest from the Nitesh, because my issues have gone un-responded to for over 2 weeks. Again, that's unrepsonded to, NOT unresolved.
As things stand now, I've paid for this plugin and I'm contemplating a couple of actions...that I don't want to do.
Feel free to contact me directly to go over my experiences.
Saw this plugin on WPBeginner recently and decided to give it a go. Downloaded this morning, installed, up and running like a dream. Great plugin and would strongly recommend to anyone wishing to have a feature like this on their website. PRO version to follow as soon as I need to upgrade.
No idea why the criticism from some factions on this review section, unless they are competitors perhaps, or just don't know what they're doing. If the former, concentrate on improving your own products. If the latter the support with this plugin is excellent, end of...
Great job Nitesh, and before you ask, no, I don't have any vested interest at all :)
Read reviews and was impressed. Decided to try your free version to see if it was worth purchasing. Installs but it can't be activated. No error message, just refuses to activate. Then I went to the Ultimate Auction site to ask about this and saw that you refuse to even respond to anyone that hasn't purchased your product. Thank you ... but no thank you. Your free version isn't even worth installing ... why would I buy it
VERY GOOD PLUGIN EASY TO USE , EASY TO INSTALL , VERY GOOD SUPORT TEAM
This review is about free version. When I installed it I could not believe I had this amazing feature in my blog in a couple of minutes.
The thing I like most it is actually the backend design. Sometimes wp plugins are so difficult to manage to do simple things. In this plugin everything is just easy. You know when you look at it people behind this plugin is first class designers and programmers.
I bought the ultimate auction plugin pro version and the functionality is in another class compared to the free version.
Customer support is excellent. The author answered all my questions and fixed a few bugs from my end in a quick and timely manner.
The auction script generally works fine until we get to sending payments and winning alerts.
1. Multiple emails are sent to the auction winner.
2. Payment emails are sent more than once at different times of day
3. Payment emails, the is a 50% chance they are not sent
and the last straw was
4. Script slows down my wordpress site. I am sure there is a fix but I am fed up with the other issues
I am now using a different script which offers everything that this offers without the payment hassles.
Is exactly what I was after and more!
Fantastic support as well.
