The Auction application allows items to be placed on the auction page and bid on during a specified time period. Front-end users can submit their items and upload pictures of the items for auction. Items can be searched for by category and then bid on by submitting bid and contact information. The program automatically sends an email to the previous high bidder, letting that person know that they have been outbid and need to place a higher bid if desired. The administrator emails the person with the highest bid upon completion of the bidding time.
This application is very useful for general web site auctions for businesses, non-profits and civic organizations.
