Admins Promote auctions via WordPress Widgets

The Woo Auction Software plugin comes with special widgets to promote new, upcoming and ending soon auctions. This helps create interest and get more bids from auction participants.

Auction Participants Register and Login to Bid

Users register & login securely using the standard WordPress + WooCommerce registration process to place their bids. They can also access their bids, history and other details from the My Account area.

Authenticated participants place their bids

Logged in users can now place bids on their favorite auction items. These users also have an option to buy these auction items at the Buy It Now Price and skip the bidding process.

The highest bidding participant wins

When the auction ends at the scheduled end time, the participant with the highest bid wins the auction. Admins can set a reserve price which must be met. Winning bidder is sent and email and payments can be collected via escrow.
