My client used wp_auctions from several versions ago. When they used our services to update their site, I contacted wp_auctions about upgrading. They were responsive and honest about the issues I might face. I grabbed the free version, tested, and it worked nicely out of the box.
When I went to the paid version (I wanted some of the upgraded features), I hit a glitch. Again, wp_auction resolved my issue quickly and professionally, and the upgrade was well worth the small amount we paid.
Highly recommend these guys.
I was tasked with setting up an auction on very short notice and basically no budget AND the board wanted to keep it within our suite of hosted sites. I didn't have time to program anything for our main site, which runs EECMS, so we turned to a WordPress Plugin for one of our sub sites. I downloaded the free or demo versions of several and WP-Auctions was by far the best, with the most features and intuitive use, so we bought the one time download version.
I got everything up and running quickly to satisfy the board and hit a kink with the payment page not working. The developers were super responsive and worked with me over a couple of days to get it up and running! Some of the best customer service I've seen with a plugin. Almost instant response and very thorough. In the end, the issue seems to have resolved itself despite all of us working various angles, or we hit just the right nail to smack it all into working order.
Auction is running smoothly and the plugin is perfect for a complex (or simple) auction without too much grunt work.
A bit of a learning curve for someone who hasn't ever used wordpress before but Hyder was super helpful and worked with us until our issues were sorted out. Our auction has not gone live yet but we are hopeful that there will be few to no glitches! 4 stars because it could be a bit more user friendly/intuitive but overall we are happy.
I had the first auction set up in just a few minutes with some very simple setup steps. There was some customization that I wanted to do to the auctions, and the support from the developer was really fast and answered my question 100%.
We've been utilizing WP Auctions Pro (the paid version) plus the Bulk Uploader add-on for years now; easy to customize the output on our Auction Posts, easy to bulk upload, easy to automate and administrate. Thanks much!
You don´t need to spend thousand of dollars to have a professional auction system, WPauctions make it possible.
Give it a try and you won´t be dissapointed!.
It has a great human team behind offering top support, they will kindly answer all your doubts.
Can't believe I paid for this plugin. It used to work very well, but the last few updates have completely ruined this plugin. Now half of the features don't work. I have bid notifications set as "off" and still get them. The "Auction Landing Page" doesn't recognize anything. Neither does the "Default Auction Page." Certain features only work if you have a certain display set (like Registered Users Only). I put it as anyone can bid but the responsive display still requires users to login.
What a joke. Save your money, it will save you plenty of headaches in the long run.
I love it when a plugin works exactly as advertised. So many of them don't. This one did and I appreciate it!
edited. Had an issue, but it was resolved nicely. Changing my review to reflect that. Now that I am able to get inside the plugin, I'm currently looking around. It looks like I should be good.
My only recommendation so far (understand that I'm just getting into it, so it may be there), is to allow users to post auctions from the front end, and never have to leave the website. If it's not in there, I'm certain that there are plugins that can help.
The mixed reviews are surprising to me as this is a great auction plugin for WordPress - and in my opinion - hands down the best available for WordPress. The latest (paid) version is mobile responsive, comes with a ZOOM add-on so customers of the auction can zoom in on the pictures and you can style the look however you want (if you have CSS skills).
Support has been great for me and they have logged into my site when needed to resolve issues promptly. New versions keep coming for this based on customer feedback so the developers are listening to their customers.
If you want to sell anything on your web site and keep the profits yourself - look no further than WPAuctions!
