Selling at an auction is one of the most effective marketing methods. This sales approach is also called the “deadline method of sale” because of the established sales date and time. With the Magento Auction Pro extension by aheadWorks, you can get maximum profit from this powerful strategy.
No matter whether you are in strong or slow market, the Magento Auction Pro module will definitely benefit you as a seller. In a strong market, emulative spirit accompanies the bidding process and guarantees unlimited upside potential. In a slow market, you can sell your products rapidly at current market price. Thus with our Magento Auction Pro extension, you don’t risk to overprice and then constantly reduce price to stimulate your customers interest.
Your auction product is neither overpriced nor undersold; its value is determined by the market and individual buyers. At an auction, competitive bidding among potential buyers means that the selling price often exceeds the expected value of the property, maximizing the sale price for the seller.
With the Magento Auction Pro extension, sellers benefit as well as their customers!
