Auction shops - FAQ
In this section you can find answers to the most frequently asked questions concerning auction shops.
Product availability depends on whether in a given shop, and on a given auction account, there is at least one active auction with a given product. Available stock quantity visible in a shop is a sum of the number of products put up for all active auctions, diminished by the number of products already bought. Of course goods have to be assigned to a given website to become visible.
The price is set on the basis of the first (the oldest active) auction. In case of no active but planned auctions, the price from the last auction is displayed (in case of lack of auctions, a base price for the auction service).
A user will be directed to the first created (the oldest active) auction.
Yes, it will. The client will be informed when the product will be available and the price will be set on the basis of the last auction (in case of lack of auctions, a base price for the auction service).
The system reacts to the end of an auction within 10 to 30 minutes. If the product is not available on any other auction put up from an account assigned to your auction shop, it will not be visible in a shop (marked as unavailable).
When it comes to assigning products to categories and menu structure, an auction shop works exactly the same as a regular shop – categories are not created automatically.
