WP Auctions Plugin – Bid Now

WP AuctionsWP Auctions is an interesting Wordpress plugin that allows you to host auctions on your blog. You can auction off whatever you want. This could range from advertising space to items. This is perfect for any website looking to sell their merchandise for a little cheaper each week. I can see using this plugin for lots of different things.

WP Auctions Info

WP Auctions is a simple plugin to use which literally took me one or two minutes to install. The best thing has to be NO fees!

Configuration is pretty simple as well. You can either add a code directly to your template to display the WP Auction on your sidebar. Or even easier, you can just use the widget like I have.

You can add a starting price as well as how long you want your auction to run. The people at WPAuctions are working on even more ways to improve this relatively new plugin.

Our Auction

We are giving this a trial run. I hope to come up with new ways to keep our auctions interesting. We started by auctioning off a 200+ word blog review. The minimum bid is at $5 and will run for a week. Make sure to look on over at our sidebar and put in a bid!

If there is anything you’d like to see auctioned here please don’t hesitate to let me know. You can run multiple auctions at a time.

    This is a great find, and with great timing for me.

    I am trying to raise money for charity on my blog with an auction, but I was just going to use a normal post with comments. This is much better!

    Check out my site for a new contest, and the charity fund raiser I mentioned.
