👨 Excellent software, excellent support

We had some problems with initial configuration, and there is one plugin that is required which is currently suspended, but Nitesh and his team were able to resolve our problems in extremely short order, and our charity auction is running perfectly. Definitely fit to purpose.

👨 Amazing Customer Support

Honestly, customer support are so helpful! I cannot rate them enough for the support I received. The issue wasn’t even with their plugin – it was a theme issue and they still supported me and offered great advice.
– By @storageauctionsnearme

💁 Worked well and quick and helpful support

We needed to run a one-off auction, so couldn’t justify a paid extension. Even though we used the free one, we got very quick and helpful support with some questions. Auction went well and we may do more in the future because it went well.

The plugin is very good, but I still can’t set up a dark theme like it is on my site. If you pay attention to this, please make an announcement in a black or yellow window so that it can be noticed, since I do not see the need for other updates. Arigato.
02. srpnja 2023.
It seems this version of the plugin is abandoned for the woocommerce auction plugin. The paypal integration here doesn't seem to function correctly.
17. prosinca 2022.
I had a little problem with the functionality of the plugin that was quickly resolved. Unbeatable customer service. 10/10.
03. ožujka 2022.
Support was very helpful, thanks again! They took their time to understand my issue and evetually have solved it. We all know that this is not the standard. Therefore I'm really happy and will recommend Ultimate Auction! The plugin itself is easy to use and does what it promises. So overall a great experience for me.
20. ožujka 2021.
It's enough simple to use without programming skill, but a very big issue is all the time you lose in order to add another auction. Why the button (clone this auction) is not available yet? As example, if the 98/99%% of the auction data are the same, included logo etc, and I've just to replace the time/duration of the auction, or just the title, so, why we can't use just a clone-the-auction's button or duplicate-this-auction's button? It's really boring to create a new auction from scratch! Anyway, this plugin is very good, Thanks SO much for your replay

  1. Fix

    We have fixed the error of PHP 8.2

4.2.1

  1. New Feature

    We have implemented a new layout for the auction list page and auction detail page. The new layout appears by default on both pages. We have given the option to change the layout for auction pages. So, the admin can set the old layout or new layout from the auction settings.

  2. Fix

    We have fixed the translation issue into the Ultimate WordPress Auction plugin. Now, the auction plugin can be translated into any language.

4.2.0

  1. Fix

    Auction plugin conflicts with the Twenty Twenty-Two and Twenty Twenty-Three WordPress theme. Due to that the timer and place bid functionality was not working. We have fixed this issue.

4.1.9

  1. Fix

    We have fixed the issue related to the opening price. When the bidder tries to place a bid value of less than the opening price, the plugin will display an alert “Please enter a bid amount greater than or equal to the opening price”.

4.1.8

  1. Fix

  2. When admin tries to create auction without adding the value for buy now, it will display the error for “Uncaught Error : round(): Argument #1 ($num) must be of type int|float”. We have fixed this issue.

  3. “Unsupported operand types: string + string” error comes with the PHP8. We have fixed it.

4.1.7

    (c) In email-template.php template file – Because this the winning email with PayPal payment, link was not sent properly.

  1. Improvement – We have updated the points to set “Paypal Auto Return” url and it is now in accordance with the latest Paypal dashboard.

4.0.9

  1. Fix – Added a flag which will check if the emails are sent and would restrict multiple emails.
