4. How To Add Auction Products Manually
In this document, we will see how to create an auction product manually.
Please review the below YouTube video. We have created the video for creating the auction product in the admin dashboard. This video will cover how to set the title, description, opening price, reserve price, buy now price, auction type, bid increment, start date, end date, etc.. of the auction product.
You can add it via the WordPress dashboard menu, navigate to the Products menu and click Add New.
Step 1 - Add the product's title which you want to display on the shop page.
Step 2 - Enter the product's description.
Step 3 - Select a category of product or you can create your own category.
Step 4 - Select the product's image which is display on the shop page.
Step 5 - Select the product's image gallery which is display on a single product page.
Step 6 - In the product data section choose “product data = Auction Product” from the dropdown. This option is enabled only when you active our Ultimate WooCommerce Auction PRO plugin. Add data to relevant fields in the product data section.
Product Condition: This field can be used
to show item condition as "New" or "Used".
Opening Price: This field is the price at which the auction will start.
Lowest Price to Accept: This field represents the "Reserve Price" for the auction.
Bid Increment: This field represents a default incremental value between any two bids.
Buy Now Price: This field represents a fixed price which when paid by the user will get the product and expire the auction.
Ending Date: At this date, the auction will expire.
Step 7 - Add a short description of the product.
Step 8 - Click the "Publish" button, your auction product should now be ready and displayed under the “Shop” page
