YITH AUCTIONS FOR WOOCOMMERCE

Description

What the plugin doesThe easiest way to implement an auction system similar to eBay on your store.
How you can benefit from it:

  • You will benefit from an effective model business catching the eye of those customers who usually take part in auctions to get products at advantageous prices;
  • You will sell unique and refined products without diminishing their market value by setting a minimum start price to increase the profit margin;
  • You will take advantage of the scarcity and competition principles to offer an ad hoc product, such as a custom or out-of-stock item, that your customers will perceive as unmissable.
