[Contribution] Auction Module

Recommended Posts

Download the Auction Module Contribution Here.

This is the official support thread for the Auction module started by celdish. Here is what he wrote:

This script is not entirely finished. We have some bugs here and there pluss it does need some modifications to be e perfect script.

 

What does it do:

- Place items out for auction from admin panel

(you can chose item, time for auction, price etc.)

- customer can place bids (must log in)

( you have a own sections for all the auctions you have on you site)

 

This script is excellent for you pleople who are just selling 1x of a items or want to get some more action on you website. Good luck, and I hope this can end up beeing a much better script then what it is now.

 

CHECK WWW.BELTESPENNER.COM for live working script!

I will also be taking an active interest in this module, in fact I had one like this in the works (wasn't half completed).

P.S. I think this one is going to be really popular.

Auction Script v.1.0

 

Check live and kicking version on http://www.beltespenner.com

 

Even though this script is not complete it does work. Below I have written some more information about the script.

 

How it works, what problems it has and what should be improved.

After using the script for some time I have come to the following.

 

1.

The administrator has an auction admin panel were he can set up auctions, and monitor bid activity. You choose the item you want to auction out from a complete product list containing all the products you have in the store. If the product is also in the store itself, when you enter the product to purchase it, it will only be available as an auction. To prevent this you must make a copy of the items you want to auction out. And place this in an inactive category. Then you will find it only under the auction site and it will also be available for normal purchase in the store. The layout of the admin panel is not really superb.

2.

When an auction is created it will be listed on the catalog/auctions.php site. To place a bid you must log in. If someone places a bid over you, you will automatically receive an email notification about this.

3.

When an auction is over the countdown is changes to ?Auction ended?, however it is still possible to place bids. The best solution here would be that when an auction is finished, it should automatically have its status set to ?inactive? and be removed from the web shop.

4.

The administrator must manually go in and accept the highest bid. When this is done an email is sent to the bidder telling him that they have won. The item is placed in the persons sopping cart at the highest bid price. For some reason the VAT tax is added to the price after the auction is over. The winner must now log in and complete the order and choose their preferred payment method.

 

The administrator can accept several bids per auction, and this is actually very good. Maybe there are several bids you are satisfied with and are willing to sell the item for. However if you accept several bids the price which the item is placed in the shopping cart at, is always the highest bid, and sometimes it also ends up being the product original price also. Here there are some errors that must be fixed. The email that is sent to the people whose bid has been accepted but is not the highest bidder is now the same as the highest bidder email. If you ask me theses emails should be different ? more like this: ?You have entered a bid on our auction and as stated in our Terms & Conditions an auction can have several winners. The items are place in your shopping cart at your bid price, please go and finalise your order.

 

5.

As the script is now if the persons whom bids have been accepted does not finalize the order, nothing happens. The administrator must then go in manually and place an order for the person. Here it would be very smart if the script automatically generated an order after 7 days if the person has not finalized the order them self. This order should then be with Cash on Delivery payment. It would also be smart with a button next to each bid in admin section saying ?generate order? or something like this.

6.

The listing of the auctions are now sorted after which auction was last created by the admin. Here the best would be to list the auctions by how much time is left. So that the auctions with least time left comes on the top.

7.

It should also be an ?I accept the terms and conditions ?check boss next to the ?place bid? button.

8.

Maybe the bid list should also contain the time which the bid was placed.

9.

Maybe instead of customer name on the bid list, it should be customer ID #

 

This script is really great platform to become a huge resource for all you people out there using OsCommerce. It generates much more activity on you website and really give your sales a boost.

 

Hope we can improve this script together and make it into a popular a powerful OsCommerce tool!

Hi

As already Celdish stated, this is huge imporvement for Oscommerce .. i was looking long time for such contrib.

 

I believe most of points from Celdish are good and should be added to contrib. Since i'm not a programer, i will do my best to make reports on using .. possible bugs or errors!

 

thanx

Hi there,

 

As mentioned before: this is absolutly a great script. I used to have an auction running besides OsCommerce and therefor I wasn't able to put the products I have in OsCommerce at the same way in my own auction.

 

This script does it!

 

But I have a question: So far everything is working well except for the bugs mentioned before, but I'm not very pleased about the countdown. I want to use this auction for products that doesn't sell good. For example: I have products older than 2 years in my shop and I want to get rid of them. But when I enter the expiration date of a week later than today, it counts down from the moment the product was added in the shop in the first place to the expiration date. So for a product that is added 2 years ago, it has a countdown of 2 years !

 

I know you're not done writing this script, but maybe you can take a look at this also.

I've added a new version of the auction (version 1.2)

 

What I've done is this:

 

- added 4 new language files: dutch, espanol, french and english

- added Bid Date Added to includes/modules/auction_bids.php so the date of bid will be added to products_info.php

- added bid_date_added to auction_bids table in mysql

 

also reorganised the folders attached to the zip-file and separated the NEW_FILES and the CHANGED_FILES

I've made a mistake by entering my own personal notes in some language files for sending emails. I've removed them from the files so others won't have to delete it themselves.

 

Also added a feature with celdish already noticed: Customers ID instead of Customers Name due to privacy policy of the customers

Here is a TO DO list for the script. All other contributions are also mostly welcome of course!

 

Nobody has yet contributed the modifications marked in RED

Someone has contributed the modification marked in blue BLUE

Possible Solution:

When you create an auction it should automatically be created a copy of the product which is to be used for the auction. Then you do not have to manually make a copy of every product before you place it our for auction.

 

The layout of the admin panel is not really superb either.

 

2.

When an auction is over the countdown is changes to ?Auction ended?, however it is still possible to place bids.

The best solution here would be that when an auction is finished, it should automatically have its status set to ?inactive? and be removed from the web shop.

Hi celdish,

 

It looks like we've got a lot of things to do. We have to be carefull though with your second issue: after the auction is ended the product will be deleted from the shop if someone has placed a bid and won. But when there are more quantities of one product, it shouldn't been deleted. It should be placed back at the auction for the remaining items OR it should be placed back in the shop itself.

I'll take care of point 2, just writing so we all dont work on the same stuff. I think I'll make it go to inactive once the count down has finished, and once I have that done, I'll redo it so that it removes one item from the product qty, if there are multiple products. After that, maybe a configurable admin so that people can choose how the want their auctions to end, is in order.

 

Thanks Nick

Hi All!

I have installed Auction v1.2a and I have some questions...

1. How do you set the expiry date?

I create a fresh product and select it for auction. At the products page there is 20 days added to the expiry date that was selected. What am I doing wrong?

2. The date bid added shown in product_info.php is always 0000-00-00 00:00:00

How do I fix that?

3. Expired date always shows time 00:00:00

Can it be set to something else?

4. Explain to me what "Overbid amount" is.

5. I don't recieve E-mails as bidder or admin when bidding.

6. I can't monitor any bidding in Admin, only the products in the auction. Where does admin accept the highest bid?

Hi Micke

 

1. In the admin panel you have the option to set an expiry date when selecting a new product for the auction

2. The date bid has an error:

 

in catalog/includes/modules/auction_bids.php

 

FIND

 

$products_query_raw = "select concat(c.customers_firstname, c.customers_lastname) as customers_name, c.customers_id, ab.bid_price, ab.bid_status from ".TABLE_CUSTOMERS." c, ".TABLE_AUCTIONS_BIDS.' ab,'.TABLE_AUCTIONS_PRODUCTS.' ap where c.customers_id = ab.customers_id and ab.auctions_id=ap.auctions_id and ab.auctions_id='.$auction_id.' order by bid_price DESC ';

 

REPLACE WITH

 

$products_query_raw = "select concat(c.customers_firstname, c.customers_lastname) as customers_name, c.customers_id, ab.bid_price, ab.bid_status, ab.bid_date_added from ".TABLE_CUSTOMERS." c, ".TABLE_AUCTIONS_BIDS.' ab,'.TABLE_AUCTIONS_PRODUCTS.' ap where c.customers_id = ab.customers_id and ab.auctions_id=ap.auctions_id and ab.auctions_id='.$auction_id.' order by bid_price DESC ';

 

error should be gone now and the date will be shown when a customers enters a bid

 

3. we're working on that

4. Overbid Amount means Bid Increment. The customer is only allowed to raise the bid by the amount you've entered in the admin panel. If you haven't filled in Overbid Amount, then the customer is allowed to enter every higher amount

5. we're working on that either

6. we're working on that either also

Sorry, my mistake

 

In catalog/product_info.php

 

FIND

 

$sql_auction = 'update '.TABLE_AUCTIONS_BIDS." set auctions_id='$auction_id',bid_price= '$bid_price', bid_date_added= 'now()' where auctions_id='$auction_id' and customers_id='$customers_id'";

 

REPLACE WITH

 

$sql_auction = 'update '.TABLE_AUCTIONS_BIDS." set auctions_id='$auction_id',bid_price= '$bid_price', bid_date_added= 'now()' where auctions_id='$auction_id' and customers_id='$customers_id'";

 

That should do the trick. I found myself banging against the wall for 'forgetting' to put this update either in the installation.txt file.

Hi Marcus!

 

1. Sorry, but editing the update query in product_info.php didn't work either... The bidding date/time is still 0000-00-00 00:00:00.

 

2. I have two currencies in my shop. If the current highest bid is 60SEK (the default currency of the shop) and someone places a bid of ?6 (wich is morre than 60SEK) you get a "New price of bid must be more than your last bidding price!!"- message...

Hey everyone,

I have basically finished the 'end of auction' addition (i.e. Bug 2) but will post it up tomorrow because there is still one bug I have to get rid of.

 

Basically, you can configure the 'end of auction' settings in CONFIGURE->AUCTIONS like this:

How do you want your auctions to end, select an option:

0 - Auction goes inactive

1 - Auction remains active but can't be bid on

 

1/ Anyway, I am too lazy to rewrite the install instructions so you'll have to do with a set of upgrade instructions (maybe we should put off having any manual install instructions until this contrib is bug free - which should be within a month I think - so people dont go and add these 'development' versions until everything is done. After that I'll write a super-sexy HTML set of instructions. How about it?

 

2/ Can we please label the code like this

//BOF AUCTIONS CONTRIB - The following code does %BACKFLIPS%
$backflip = Some backflips
//EOF AUCTIONS CONTRIB

instead of the way it is now, i.e.

//bof added by jobonline2001@yahoo.com for auction product contribution
$code
//eof added by jobonline2001@yahoo.com for auction product contribution

I think this is much cleaner for other people to read, and we can give credit to the main contributors at the end of the HTML instructions (just comes off more professional that way)

 

3/ The expiry date bug (i.e. 2006-11-14 00:00:00) is because in the admin, you are only able to set the day it ends and not the time (i'll fix this in one of the next few updates). I dont think the solutions offered here would work though because the problem is missing fields in the admin.

 

4/ For some reason, the countdown timer is 18 days slow, i.e. if you put the expiry day for today, it will actually end in 18 days time!!!!!!! Maybe the javascript in modules/auction_bids.php is faulty, who knows.

 

5/ Maybe the best way to take fix the admin is to merge admin/auctions.php and admin/categories.php, I am not really sure but that might be a quick fix I think, maybe someone who is very experienced with osC can try that.

 

Thanks Nick

Great, and again another bug is gone !

 

 

By the way: at this moment I'm working on the expiration date issue in the admin. I have rewritten the code of the calendar so you can enter the expiration time as well and it's working. Although it's not great at the moment because you have to insert the time manually. I'm trying to get it automaticly done by the admin.

wonderful how this community is bringing together the best contrib.

 

Now my question;

 

How about let visitors offer theis product to auction. In example we are selling concert tickets. I believe some visitors would like to sell their tickets (for sold out concert) in an auction. Apart from our tickets ...?

Hi gregy,

 

In my personal opinion I don't think that's a great idea. The meaning of this contrib is to get a better sale at your own shop and to have more visitors to the shop. When you are given permission to let others sell THEIR products at YOUR shop, it's going to be more like a stand alone auction instead of an extra feature at your webshop.

 

But like I said: it's my personal opinion. Maybe others have other ideas about it.

Hi All!

For what it's worth I agree with marcusdesign here...

I see this as a terrific way of selling off the odd stuff left or having attractive auction events!

The Auction module will be one of the top ten contribs, I'm sure!

Hey everyone, sorry for the delay. Auctions V1.3 is up and running. Basically it adds a configuration menu for the auctions contribution and also allows you to choose how you want your auctions to end.

How about let visitors offer theis product to auction. In example we are selling concert tickets. I believe some visitors would like to sell their tickets (for sold out concert) in an auction. Apart from our tickets ...?
Currently, osC does not have a contribution that allows 3rd-parties to add their own items for sale. I intend to do something like that in the distant future, but currently I am too busy and dont have the time (i.e. financial incentive) to do something like that. (I hardly have the time to work on this auctions contrib :P)

 

With this latest version, I have also changed the languages a bit, please can the translators contact me with the updated files and I'll include them with the next version, or post them here so that if someone else includes a new version, they can add it to that version.

 

Thanks Nick


Menou and unome
