On a recent project, I was in need of an online auction plugin for WordPress. After searching for a few days, I was discouraged by the limited number of results. If you are looking for a lightweight auction plugin to add to your WordPress website, WP Auctions will work quite nicely. WP Auctions allows you to host auctions on you WordPress powered blog or website. Plus, it’s really easy to use too!
If you have an auction plugin that you think would be a great addition to this list, contact me & I will happily add it.
OR…If you have a Plugin you would like for me to REVIEW, you can also drop me a line here.
WP Auctions popular features:
- Buy it Now option!
- Only registered users (to your blog) are allowed to place bids.
- You can put your auctions in a POST or PAGE. I LOVE this feature!
WP Auctions is a very easy to use plugin that lets anyone with a WordPress blog, or website, host auctions.
Simply upload the plugin (takes 20 seconds via the WordPress upload panel) customize your settings and Add your first auction. Your readers and visitors can now place bids on your items.
Best of all, you don’t need to pay listing fees, final sales fees, gallery fees, “bold headline” fees. In fact there are no fees to be paid to anyone, except for PayPal’s fees of course.
Once your auction is over the winner will receive an email notification with the payment details you entered. You can then ship out your item and enjoy your profits.
