    After the successful installation of this module, you can configure it under Webkul Bidding > Auction Setting.

    Standard Auction

    Here admin can enable or disable the Auction and enter winner message, Auction rule.

    Increment Auction

    In case of Increment Auction, a bid will be raised each time. It is predetermined based on the current high bid. In incremental auction, if any bidder places a bid, then current price will increase with incremental price. Like if you are the first bidder and place a bid of $30. Then current bid becomes $40 ($30 + $10 incremental price). No one can place a bid less than $40. Let’s explain this using an example.

    About Increment Auction

    The Increment bid is the amount by which a bid will be increment each time the current bid is outdone. Increment bid amount setting will be done by admin.

    Set increment bid as-

    Current High Bid Increment
    $0.01-$99.99 $10
    $100.00-$199.99 $15
    $200.00-$599.99 $20
    $600.00-$999.999 $50
    $1000 and up $200

    Example

    You’re the first bidder on a listing where the starting price is $20 and you place a maximum bid of $40. Now the current bid is automatically increment by $10 and then the current bid is $50. No one can place a bid less than $50. When a second bidder places a maximum bid of $110, bid will automatically be raised to $15 and then minimum bid amount is $125.

    Here you can see that how increments are determined. After click on Fill Incremental Price, you can enter current high bid.

    Admin can enable or disable the incremental auction and fill incremental price.

    Automatic Auction Option

    Admin can also enable or disable the Automatic Auction option with automatic bidder details, price, bidders, outbid messages. Let’s explain Automatic Auction using example and winning cases.

    About Automatic Auction

    1. When you(buyer) place an automatic bid with the maximum amount that you want to pay for the product.

    2. The other bidders don’t know about other’s bidder automatic bid if disable by admin.

    3. The other bidders place bids on based on the current high bid. bid will be placed until the bid meets the reserve price or until it expires.

    5. If another bidder places the same maximum automatic bid or higher, then you will be notified by mail, so that you can place another bid.

    6. If Your maximum bid is not exceeded by another automatic bidder or current bid, then you will win the bid at the current bid.

    Example-

    1. When buyer-A place an automatic bid with the maximum amount $100 that you want to pay for the product-X (reserver price-$60 and current bid price-$10).

    2. The other bidders don’t know about other’s bidder automatic bid if disable by admin.

    3. The other bidder B place bids of amount $12 on based on the current high bid. The bid will be placed until the bid meets the reserve price or until it expires. now if many bidders placed the bid and now the current bid amount is $62.

    Now winning case for bidder

    Case A

    If at this position bid expires then buyer A will win the bid at $62 amount because he placed a highest amount bid and no one exceeded this amount.

    Case B

    If another buyer C places the maximum amount $110 as automatic bid, then buyer A will be notified by mail, so that he can place another bid and if buyer A doesn’t place any maximum bid then buyer C will win the bid at cost $62.

    Case C

    If another buyer D places maximum amount $115 as normal bid then buyer C will be exceeded by current bid and he will be notified and if buyer C doesn’t place any maximum bid then buyer D will win the bid at cost $115.

    Reserve Auction Option and Email Notification Option

    In a Reserve auction, the admin is only allowed to sell the item once the bid amount meets or exceeds the Reserve Price. Admin can set the Global Reserve Price for reserve auction.

    Admin can enable or disable the Email notification options for Admin, Outbid buyer, Auto bid to outbid autobid buyer.
