Bidding Customisations and Options

Published on October 25th, 2021

Are you after a simple and flexible online auction platform to suit your business’s needs?

You can select from a variety of bidding customizations and choices in Webtron’s auction software to suit your needs. The era of cookie-cutter auction software is over. Since every auction business is different, Webtron has made the decision to provide you with thousands of bespoke options as part of Webtron 7.0.

✔️ First time bidder guide 

Add a quick-step guide at the top of your online auctions page to help guide first-time bidders through the process of registering and logging into your auction. 

✔️ Bid History

Choose whether to show bid history for each item in your auctions to greatly improve clarity, transparency and peace of mind when bidding online.

✔️ Autobids

Select whether you want bidders to be allowed to submit their highest offers for lots during live webcast auctions or timed online auctions. If the bidder is outbid, the system will then place a bid on their behalf, enabling them to continue bidding even if they are time-constrained or absent on the auction day.

✔️ Reserve tags 

Optionally add “Unreserved”, “Reserve Met” or “Reserve Not Met” tags to your items.

✔️ Colours & logos 

 Our offering is customisable to your business’s own branding and colours to help you continue building your online presence. Options to add your logo, and customise the colours of your auction portal buttons, bid button, registration button, first time bidder guide, and more.

✔️ Photo manager

Take and upload photos to your auction straight from any modern phone or mobile device. Adding photos to lots has never been easier.

✔️ Countdown clock 

Add urgency to your online auctions! A Live sales countdown clocks will indicate how long until your sale opens, and once running, how long until it closes. This is complemented by a flashing “Open” tag once an auction starts. Draw more attention to your online auctions than ever before, and generate a sense of urgency and excitement about every event.

✔️ Contact seller 

 Add a “Got a Question” button to chosen lots to allow your customers to send you email enquiries about items of interest. Even online, you can be there for your bidders.

✔️ Invoicing

 Optional in-system invoicing available, helping you simply generate and send out invoices after your sales. Add your logo, and any important information needed.

✔️ Past Auctions

Optionally add a “Past Auctions” button to your auction page to allow your bidders to view items from past sales and even their highest bid amounts.

It’s easy for yourself and your bidders to share your auctions via social media. Or, you can choose to share just a certain item of interest. The choice is yours. Available social sharing options are:
