    If you are happy to share your work I would love to see this as a contribution. I am just about to recode a lot of this too.

    Hi Dan, this is a great contribution. I've got it working kind of all right now, but I still need to work on two conceptual issues and I think they should be standard features with a newer version. See below, Bettina One is that the inserted auction item re-uses a product id of a product that is already on the shelf in the shop. This causes a range of problems with the stored original price of the product and the new price from the auction. The problem trickles down to lots of places and the original price would show up again and again, like in the shopping cart box on the side, the previous order view or when using the buy now option. And it also meant I couldn't re-insert a product once it had been sold at auction. On my site I have fixed this by creating a new unique product id for the auction item when it is inserted, with a product_price entry that is updated every time a bid is placed. This has fixed all the problems above. My client wants an auction overview that can be grouped by "finished auctions", "current auctions" and "auctions ending soon". This is now much easier to do. The other issue I have is that this is currently not really ebay style bidding. Ebay have set a certain standard in bidding procedures and customers using an auction site will most certainly expect it to work this way. If I enter a higher amount than the current auction price in ebay, it still reverts back to the minimum bid (as long I am not outbid by someone else). With this auction contribution, if I enter a higher amount than the minimum bid, this will be taken as the highest bid, causing me to spend more money than I would have needed to secure this bid. I will definitely need to change this for my client.

    I have added the cart reset into catalog/shopping_cart.php at around line 137 Look shortly after the start of body text for the line if ($cart->count_contents() > 0) { and add $cart->reset(); $cart->restore_contents(); just above it. This has solved the reset problem for me.

    I have fixed the currency problem on my site with changes to two files: file: catalog/product_info.php Find around line 242 else {$products_price = "$".number_format($auction_price,2);} and replace with else {$products_price = $currencies->display_price($auction_price,tep_get_tax_rate($product_info['products_tax_class_id']));} file: catalog/includes/modules/auction_bids.php Find around line 433 echo "<br> Minumum Bid :$". $finprce;?></font> and replace with echo "<br> Minimum Bid :". $currencies->display_price($finprce,tep_get_tax_rate($product_info['products_tax_class_id']));?></font> this takes also care of the typo :) I haven't tested this with tax settings, but it works for me alright. My shop is now set up in £s.

    Hi, I have just started work with this interesting contribution. If you get this error Warning: mysql_numrows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/jsphu/public_html/catalog/includes/classes/shopping_cart.php on line 345 you can fix it by changing catalog/includes/classes/shopping_cart.php line 345 $num=mysql_numrows($result); to $num=mysql_numrows($xresult); This change has now enabled me to place a bid and proceed to checkout.
  6. Hi, thank you for your comment. I looked at the SPPC contribution and I going to use this one with your add-on, instead of totalB2B. I'd really like to say that I have never seen such a fantastically well put together contribution (I have installed quite a few for various shops). I am totally impressed! Wow!
  7. Hi, I am looking for a contribution that lets me set product availability for certain customer groups only. I have found quite a few contributions that let me set product prices for certain groups only, but they will still show all the products to everyone. Can anyone recommend anything? Ideally I would like to add it to the contribution TotalB2B. Thanks!
