It’s been a busy couple of months and we’ve been hard at work coding away at the latest update to WP Auctions. This version will be one of the biggest updates we’ve done.
So what’s new?
Well, we don’t want to give away everything just yet. So here’s the top 3 most exciting new features we’re presently working on!
1. WP Auctions + Your Profile: We’re bridging the gap to making the plugin more “personable” by moving some of the auction information to the “Your Profile” page. You can now set your PayPal account, where you receive payments, personal email blacklist and see how many current and closed auctions you have in total.
This area will expand, greatly, as we add new features.
2. Payment Page: A very cool new payment experience. Your auction winner will now get a link back to the site where they will see all the details about the auction they won and how much they need to pay. If you are accepting PayPal there will be a convenient link to pay via PayPal.
3. Terms and Conditions: You can now set a global set of terms and conditions to show your bidders. This is shown on the embedded auction layout for all to see. So now if you want people to know any specific legalese before bidding this is the place to put it. It also makes creating auctions easier as you don’t have to write or copy/paste a bunch of text on each embedded auction in a post.
What’s out? (Eventually)
Yes, we’re taking away something.
Sadly, our pop-up auction window was just not cutting it anymore in terms of usability and utilizing all the features we have, and it won’t be big enough for future iterations.
It’s not gone yet, but it’s definitely on its way out. Who knows though, we might still hang on to it in some sort of way, for old times’ sake?!
But wait….there’s more!
You’ll have to come back to the blog in a couple of days to know what else we’ve done. You’re gonna like the way the plugin looks, I guarantee it!
