How To Start Penny Auction Website

Step 1: Package Selection, Plugins & Contract

First you need to select the right software package and to decide, whether you’re interested in a standard or an enterprise package.  Here you can read about the differences between Standard and Enterprise versions. You might also be interested in low-cost but most powerful Hosted version, that combines affordable pricing model with most rich features set.

Then, if you selected Standard version (that means you are going to run the software on small scale, up to 100-150 simultaneous bidders) you should check the list of the penny auction plugins to decide what additional features will your auction have.
If you need a custom feature developed, please write to us. We do not publish and re-sell custom features as plugins! Custom  features you designed for your auction will be kept strictly confidential.
Once you have selected the features you want, we will be ready to send you a quote, a contract that describes what.

Step 2: Hosting
