We needed to run a one-off auction, so couldn’t justify a paid extension. Even though we used the free one, we got very quick and helpful support with some questions. Auction went well and we may do more in the future because it went well.

Installation

Minimum Requirements

  • PHP version 5.2.4 or greater (PHP 7.2 or greater is recommended)
  • MySQL version 5.0 or greater (MySQL 5.6 or greater is recommended)
  • Latest WooCommerce Plugin

Automatic installation

  1. To do an automatic install of our plugin, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

  2. In the search field type “WooCommerce Auction” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found “Ultimate WooCommerce Auction Plugin” by “Nitesh Singh”, you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

  3. Once installed, simply click “Activate”.

  4. After you have setup WooCommerce and activated our plugin, you should add a product. You can do it via WordPress Dashboard, navigate to the Products menu and click Add New.

  5. While adding product, choose “product data = Auction Product”. Add data to relevant fields and publish it.

Your auction product should now be ready and displayed under “Shop” page. If you have problems please open discussion in support forum.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here. Kindly follow these instructions for WooCommerce Plugin and then for our plugin.

Then kindly follow step 4 and 5 from “Automatic Installation”.

Updating

Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

If on the off-chance you do encounter issues with the shop/category pages after an update you simply need to flush the permalinks by going to WordPress > Settings > Permalinks and hitting ‘save’. That should return things to normal.

We were pleasantly surprised at how easy this plugin was to use. It integrated with WooCommerce so easily. Just change the product type to auction, enter a few parameters, and you’re good to go.

We needed to run a one-off auction, so couldn’t justify a paid extension. Even though we used the free one, we got very quick and helpful support with some questions. Auction went well and we may do more in the future because it went well.
