Power Auction allows you to auction products on IP.Board.

I have looked around for a modification that will do this, but have found nothing for IPB.

I have a full spec done on this and coding should begin tonight. My hope is to have beta out by mid March to start testing.

 

Some Features:

1. Per Board Administration

2. Minimum Post and account age requirement to create For Sale threads

3. Want to Sell/Want to Buy/Want to Trade Options

4. Fully custom auctions:

  • Starting Bid
  • Reserve
  • Bid Increment
  • Domain Name
  • Buy It Now Price (BIN)
  • Statistics on Domain

5. If you have a Premium Membership group on your board

  • Ability to hide from search engines
  • For Sale Threads will be highlighted
  • Threads will sticky at top of board 2 hours after posting and 2 hours before auction end

6. Email Notification for All Status and Bidding Updates.

What about:

 

cancellations (auction and/or bid)

time period (how long the auction runs)

relisting the same item if it didn't sell

notifications of "auction almost ended" a day or few hours before end, to people who subscribe to thread (or have bid?)

marking system for "paid", "sent", "auction complete" (received can be assumed when complete)

 

I trust you realise that sites running this would be MAJOR scam targets?

Yes all of those things are in the spec, except for the relisting and cancellations. Thanks. I will have to add that in.

 

It's up to the admins to keep the section clean. I'm also developing a plugin that will allow us to see what country people are actually from based off their IP.

 

Scam how? I'm on forums and buy and sell domains, sites, ect.... through auction plugins.

Assuming there's no escrow system, I sell you something, wait for you to pay, then disappear. You have absolutely no recourse. The site disclaims all liability, you're screwed.

 

That's the simplest form. There are dozens of holes in systems based on trust which, although they're not a problem to normal people, are an invitation to scumbags the world over. If there's a way to abuse it, they will.

There are scams that work around Paypal, too. It's not a problem from the programming point of view, it's just not something I would ever put on a forum of mine, simply because it would be way too much hassle dealing with all the unhappy people. :)

I agree that there are scammers out there... But living in a fear based perspective is too restrictive for me

Nothing to do with fear: as the Admin or owner of a site, you have to be REALLY careful about what you let people do on your site, what liability is implied by running certain scripts, addons, plugins and whatever. If you're not careful with your T&Cs, you end up being responsible for what goes on - legally and financially.

 

Quite apart from that, if you run a system that's open to scams, you'll get a reputation and your traffic will plummet. Charging ahead "fearlessly" isn't always a good thing, especially where business is concerned.

Created by IPB? They have IP.Nexus, but that will not be able to do the above.

 

There is nothing here that needs to be kept secure, everything that you do when you create the threads is all public information.

At this point all development has stopped, I still plan on completing it, but I have a lot of consulting work that I'm doing that pays :) So until I get caught up with that I've put this on hold.

hi, what about this? no body continues this work? i am interested in this script, can see a demo or it is offline for ever? have more than 1 year offline i thought... thanks for the fast answer ;)

I have the version that was not approved by IPB.  It was never turned into a fully finished plugin for IPB as the cost would have been an additional 2k to finish.
