Hi!
I think this is a great mod!
I am going to install it when the update is out in mid August.
Just one question/thought:
I would like to use the Auction on my board exclusively. Is this possible?

Or, I might like to have only certain people be able to place auctions. For example: people, who have bought something from my shop within' the last year, are able to post auctions for free, others are not... is this possible?

About payment:
I would like to make the auction listings for free, but charging ONLY, if the product sells. I think this is the most important of all. If this feature is missing, the auction would not make sense for me. If people have to pay just to list an auction, they better do it on eBay. But if they don't have to pay a listing fee people will prefer to list the auction here and not on eBay, they have nothing to loose. For me, the insert fee is a reason, why I do not
sell on eBay. Why should I pay for listing an item, if it doesn't sell?


Is that possible?

First thing is possible with the new permission system.
For the second question you need a work around.

Have moved this post to support as i am trying to work on all the posts in the development to get done for next release.

Thats about the third request we've had to set it up so that people only have to pay if something sells. I predict at some point in the future that we will need to add an auction broker option to the acp.

Kiss News - This has already been requested in feature requests, you should look in that forum, add your thoughts to the thread. Smile

Why should I pay for listing an item, if it doesn't sell?

It should be possible to set the selling fee in the ACP, for example:
fix amount or
percentage of total price or
a combination of those or however the final fee is structured on eBay.

But the percentage fee should be set in the ACP and should be variable.

But I see a problem, how to collect the money... maybe a Paypal money request could be sent automatically to the seller with the correct amount... would that be possible??

I tend to agree. I am going to move this to feature requests.

The easiest way I can see to accomplish this, is that the buyer pays the auction owner, and either the auction owner pays the seller what is left, or the forum automatically pays the seller what is left.

Kiss-news - Could you edit your original post and add a poll? Thanks! Very Happy
