Private Auction

Post by KudzuJungle » Wed Sep 21, 2016 5:33 pm

Is it possible to have a hidden auction? I do a lot of estate liquidation and I want to hide some or all of an estate sale's content from the public, in order to give estate sale shoppers the first chance to purchase items before being released to the general public.

Example:
Public category - the entire world can see the home page and all the items available.
Estate So-and-so name - Only people who are subscribed to our estate liquidation newsletter will have access to view and purchase these items for a limited time, before we switch the items to the public.
Estate 2 so-and-so name - The ability to add another estate listing that is separate from the other estates we liquidate.
Estate 3 - etc. etc. ect.

Hi,

Unfortunately you can't add Private Auctions by default as is, only Private Bids, which will make users bids private, so others will not see who / what bid posted.

Does the theme allow third party plugins to be made that I can hire someone to make a private auction plugin, with unlimited private auctions?

Plugins that integrates that much in the functions of the theme have to be integrated, even if you create or just install a plugin which can do that, it have to be integrate in order to work with the theme's auctions.
