Auction plugin
« on: December 20, 2021, 03:02:21 AM »
Hello. There is also an idea, an auction plugin for the osclass that can works well with the "make an offer" plugin. And it can be used in two kinds of websites.
1. A clean Auctions, osclass based , auction website similar like Ebay in its original form.
2. Regular classifieds website with the option to add an auction function to any category. But as soon as someone publishes the first such ad, a separate category "Auction" appears.
 Thus, the same ad where the "Auction" function is added appears in two places in its original category, for example, in the Vehicles category, and in the Auction category.
It seems to me that a plugin like this will add functionality and novelty and many different features possibilities and opportunities.

Unfortunately, this does not look to be worth of development on osclass

Hm. An Auction plugin would be great ( willing to have it, and even pay for a custom develop). Im sure other agree but maybe made in this way :

1. Users can post Auction only in a predefined category ( created from backend with this purpose )
2. Users can put :  - starting price
                            - ending price
                            - bid increment sum ( a minimum sum which he can bid )
                            - auction time
and all the other default atrr form theme, or plugins.
3. This should be chargeable if the admin desires it ( os Pay ) 
4. This type of listing should be displayed only on Auction page, or separate slider on front page ( few great options for themes - ability to choose which listing categories is to be displayed front page / search page )
5. The user who publishes an auction should have the ability to award a winner.

From business type of view, I'm sure it will pay of the effort of developing such a plugin  ??? ??? ???
;) nothing here, move on.

You will find out, that you miss some features and there is much more of them.
as example:
- minimum acceptable amount
- time countdown
- assurance winner will pay
- auction can have different formats (dutch ?)

Usually not like that  ;D
Complexity is the problem.

Auction would be a great feature indeed.

Perhaps simplified could be “sell to the best offer” where only the offers are collected and presented in order so the seller can choose to contact the “bidders” in order.

After all bidding like eBay is in fact challenging and requires strong and complex business processes, like escrow, returns,…

However a simple ordered contacts list with the offer values is a workable, simple, no responsibilities mechanism that helps sellers.
I which I had that on “olex”.

Just want to sell an item, don’t know how much people are willing to pay for it, or just want to get rid of it for the best offer.

That’s something I’d buy.
