Mr Big Deals

App does exactly what it says it will do and runs well but is far behind being a viable app for those who want to auction products in volume.

1. App creators could improve greatly by removing the retail price from auction listed products. Having both the retail price and the auction starting price is confusing to bidders and I have seen an increase in my bounce rate since installing the app. I would rather see just the auction price and not the retail price on the auction items.

2. Having to manually enter the bid increment rate for each listing is very redundant. Developers could work on improving the redundant tasks to make converting a product to an auction listing faster and easier.

3. A relist button for items that have ended without a bid would be great to see.

4. The very small line of text for the auction link does not make finding auction items easy.

There are many improvements that can be made to the app but this being said I will keep running with the app "as is" in hopes that they will make improvements to it to make the app operate like a real auction app.

I noticed the price for this app has recently increased from $14 to $30 per month. at $14 with the limitations in functionality it is a fair price, but Webkul seriously needs to improve the app beyond its simple capabilities before I would be willing to fork over $30 a month for it.

Update: Stayed with them clearly and added a star. The support channel for responses have been a little more speedy, however the proxy bidding doesnt look like its going to be fixed unless it comes by enough of requests or the feature. The issue I am having is getting mismatched RSS feed items, which I feel they will fix. Figured I would do an update and remove my last update as I was extremely angry with their support channel which seems to have been adjusted. I just seriously wish they would fix the issue with the amount people bid if they mistype it.

Almost Final Update: I am so close to just cancelling, we have had more problems then you can shake a stick at. Seriously on a wednesday its down??? Why would you create a script and not perform any maintennance on it and then we people have won an auction they cant check out. Even if you go to the app online, same thing. Just horrible all around

Update: This is getting horrible. Now we are down again, in a 3 day window! 3 day its broken again! I really wish there was another option. I cant help but keep these guys at 2 star till they fixed this PERM. I lose customers cause of this bs

Had a hiccup with the auction page, they had to recreate it but I lost 3 customers for them complaining it was down too long and unprofessional....

Update: So I had to uninstall to get this working again as they had an issue with their systems which caused no one to be able to check oiut. It is fixed but now im getting a syntax error. I had to pay for the RSS feed that is supposed to be done monday but now i have other issues

Update: Okay they fixed the link in the email it sends. Couple issue, sorry to keep ranting on but I want to show people whats going on behind scenes. They added the option to add this to a PAGE, AMAZING! Only issue is I have no idea where its pulling it from. I WOULD love an RSS or Atom feed so I can pull this up and when I put up a new auction I could do a multitude of things to make it more user friendly. Alert when a new item is added and so forth. Not a HUGE deal. Last thing is when you create an auction for an item it goes in its OWN section of an item (shopify auction) which I had to hide from menus because it just was messing up my spaces. It would be nice if it SOLD it as the item, so when they were reminded to do a review on an item it wasnt on an item that "didnt exsist (ie: shopify auction 8)". Thats not the biggest deal but its a pretty significant thing.

Biggest downfall: I use an app for iOS and android, even linking to this page with the div in it, it wont show thru the app. Again, this would be helpful if there was a way to have an RSS.

Another Update: Been emailing them for 3 days now with 0 response. I cant run anymore auctions because in the email they are using a link like this "https://{$shop_name}/a/bids/1/2/{$customer}" this cannot be used for a multitude of reasons I wont get into. They arent fixing it and its been broke for several days now. I am at the point of just throwing in the towel

Update: Found a work around, I made a collection and put that on my main page and have it show PRODUCT title NOT shopify auction and then it removes the glitch. I guess whatever. Still need a way to delete old auctions, AND offer 2nd chance for someone that doesnt end up buying it. Also next issue is the page that shows the auctions. What it does is create a "fake" product which if you know what your doing you can access this item and all the auctions are variants for that item

Update: Ok so here we are ONE last time. This is still so broken, when an auction is over and I set it 2 days it DOESNT delete. They dont respond to emails, they have horrible support, just let down.

Update: This could SO use a DIV that you could put on a page that would show the AUCTIONS. Or maybe even a collection that shows them. I guess I could manually do it. Well today I found a problem with the auctions, on the product grid item if on the main page it removes the 5th item in the row or the 4th or whatever is immediately after the item that is auctioned

Couple things; I have been using this for about 3 hours or so. I can tell you that its kind of silly to NOT be able to put a code up to have a page that lists all the auctions that are up. Also the way it looks when you put it on the product page is not the best; I will be re writing a lot of the CSS to make it look more fluid in design. It def has the possibilies of being really good and DEF a cool thought
