    • If Winner has not paid
    • If Auction expired without bids
    • If Reserve Price was not met

 

  • Variable Increment: This feature will allow auctioneers to mention different incremental value for different bid amounts. Previously, auctioneer were only able to mention a fixed increment value based on which subsequent bids were placed. This will help auctioneers to get good bidding amount for their products.

 

  • Block/Un-Block User to place bid: Admin can now block any registered user to place their bid. If blocked then user will not be able to place bid and will get an alert message. This will help auctioneers to block users who win but dont pay final bid amount.

Second option will extend expiration only once and will send email to all bidders intimating this extension. Admin can now choose what behavior they want.

  • Multiple checkout option for users: If any user has won multiple auction products, he/she had to individually click “Pay Now” link under their My Accounts > Auctions > Won Bids to checkout that product and pay. Now, plugin offers a multiple check out option which will add all their won products to their WooCommerce’s checkout page and they can pay for them together.

 

  • We have now renamed “Scheduled”, “Pending” words to “Future” so that it is easier for admin to understand future auctions.
