Auction Software Types

Our Penny Auction Software Types are actually auction filters, most of them can be combined, allowing you to create 100% unique penny auction types

We provide more bid type options than any of our competitors, and allow multiple bid types to be used with each auction in the order you describe.

Many of our auction types were created to increase potential game play, as we have seen a decreased lack of interest in Penny Auction Websites over the last few years, so we have come up with ideas and methods to counteract this.

Penny Auction

Price increases as guests bid, using bids they have earned or purchased. Clock resets when someone bids in final seconds until no one bids within last seconds. In which case last bidder wins.

Private Auction

Reward your regular users. With this Penny Auction Type only members that you select are able to bid. As a bonus you can also supply "Specific Bids", that can only be used within this auction, like most of our auction filters this can be combined with other auction filters like lock auction, nailbiter, seated and more.

User Choice Auction

First created by wavee.com, later popularised by Quibids and Dealdash this Penny Auction Type allows the winner to choose the product they wish to recieve. We know of no competitors that provide this auction type. Like most of our auction filters this can be combined with other auction filters like lock auction, nailbiter, seated and more.

Tophatter Auction

Just like the well known website.

Traditional Auction

Just like Ebay, we have an ebay website clone template that can be used with this as well.

Practice Auction

This auction uses none of the user's actual bids from other sources so we recommend using it for company swag and such, as an enticement to allow people to win. As a bonus you can also supply "Specific Bids", that can only be used within this auction, like most of our auction filters this can be combined with other auction filters like lock auction, nailbiter, seated and more.

Nailbiter Auction

No bidbutlers can be used.

Subscription Only Auction

This auction filter rquires the addon for subscribed members, as a subscribed member you pay monthly for so many real bids, so many free bids and so many member bids, this auction type can include unsubscribed users by enabling the other bid types (as far as we know none of our competitors have nearly as many bid tyoes as we do). As a bonus you can also supply "Specific Bids", that can only be used within this auction, like most of our auction filters this can be combined with other auction filters like lock auction, nailbiter, seated and more.

Seated Auction

Auction does not start until seats are filled. Price increases as guests bid, using bids they have earned or purchased. Clock resets when someone bids in final seconds until no one bids within last seconds. In which case last bidder wins.

Clearance Auction

Like Filene's Basement, great way to sell off minimal inventory.

Random Winner Lottery Auction

Price increases as guests bid, using bids they have earned or purchased. Clock resets when someone bids in final seconds until no one bids within last seconds. After auction ends winner is chosen randomly those with more bids have the better odds of winning.

Group Auctions - BETA

Bidders can join a group, their bids are shared within the group, but solo bidders can also bid. If the product qunatity is more than 1 then they each get the product at the final price. If the quantity is 1 then they each pay a portion of the final cost, which is useful for high priced items that might be intended as a gift

Lock Price Auction

New Bidders are locked out after a specified price has been reached.

Lock Bidders Auction

New Bidders are locked out after a specified number of bidders have engaged the auction.

Lock Time Auction

New Bidders are locked out after a specified time.

Beginner Only Auction

Only those who have never won can participate.

Bid on Us Auction

Bids are added to a seated auction or private auction that can only be used in that auction. These bids are taken before or after bid types that are enabled for said auction.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your options for building a penny auction site are numerous.

1) you can hire a team of developers and spend weeks even months developing just the basic features of a penny auction app.

2) You can purchase a penny auction bidding app from one of our competitors and hope that it is secure and can handle the high demands of a busy website. and then hire your own developers to add the features and integrations that we offer.

3) Spend a fraction of the time and money and get the features and technology you need right out of the box by purchasing our software

Websockets

Websockets are a way of sending data between the server and users in real time. The connection stays open the whole time a user is connected so unlike AJAX scripts there is no need to reconnect. This reduces issues with latency and server overhead.

Why is NodeJS better than AJAX

NodeJS is a super fast super efficient way of connecting to a database and serving data. Mush faster than PHP and more secure.

CodeIgniter

CodeIgniter is a modern PHP / Model View Controller framework. We use it to serve files to the browser but only after we strip out comments, new lines and extra whitespace and then compress the file so that the page size is smaller and the page loads quickly. Our pages usually load in under 2 seconds.We also implement caching of your sitesettings. This means no database lookups that might slow the page from rendering.

Chargebacks

Chargebacks are the number one issue with running a Penny Auction or any Ecommerce Shopping Cart or Market Place website. In this regard we have you covered with highly configurable Two Factor authentication and confirmation.

Our Two Factor Authentication system

Can be implemented nearly anywhere that security or confirmation needs to occur. The challenge code can be random or if configured for your website then a user's PIN number can be used.

Accounting Software

Our software ties into Quickbooks so you can always get an advanced view of your profits and expenses.

Why you should avoid Wordpres penny auction software

Wordpress is notoriously slow, u stable and insecure. Wordpress is not optimised properly for ecommerce security. Wordpress is not scaleable....but our penny auction software can be used with wordpress, drupal or any website that you own using our api...so that your auctions run well where ever you choose to publish them

Is this a get rich quick scheme?

Absolutely not, expect to put in a substantial amount of time when you run your own Auction or Ecommerce Business. Time spent on marketing, procuring and finding users, products and vendors.
