Hi if three people are bidding, bidder 3 wins he only pays $150, why can't the winner pay the amount that he offered to pay $200 ?

bidder 1: $100
bidder 2: $150
bidder 3: $200

Hello,

It's actually how auctions are generally being processed online.

The current bid will always be equals to :
[0 - 1] bid => The starting price
More than 2 bids => The second (customer) highest bid + bidding increment, the bidder with the highest bid will always be the winner until a customer bid with an higher value.

We already planned on adding more mode in the future but note that if you really need it, you can edit the code of the "getAuctionCurrentPrice" function via "administrator\components\com_hikaauction\classes\auction.php" which is responsible of the calculation of the auction current price.

Best regards,
Mohamed Thelji.

Hi thank you my friend i will have a look, this comment you made "It's actually how auctions are generally being processed online." seems a bit off. I live in South Africa and our inhouse auction and online auction definitely do not work like yours, in our country we pay what we bid, I am assuming you based you app on a country that works with your type of auction method.

Thanks for your help would you be able to give me the exact code that i need to change to accomodate my country?

Hi,

Mohamed said that it is how auctions usually works online.
It's quite inpractical to have online auctions work like real life auctions due to the delay. Usually, an online auction spans over several days, and people won't be able to always check the website for new bids and add their bids. So instead they give their maximum willing bid amount and are notified only if someone has a higher amount.
I suppose that you know of ebay, the biggest online auction website in the world. And it works like that too.

As Mohamed said, we plan on adding a mode to work like what you're talking about in the future.
In the mean time, code would have to be modified like Mohamed explained. This will require some development (a few hours at least) and thus it's not something we can give like that. If you need someone to work on that for you, I would recommend contacting our partners:
