    Hi,

    We are looking at doing some on line auction sales (certificates etc), and general sale items.

    Can anyone point us in the direction of a program (software) that will integrate easily with our web site program.

    Nothing fancy (like using SQL, or needing a degree in computer science).

    ---and something that is affordable.

    The ideal program would allow us to fill in the fields and upload as a page (link) for our website.

    Thanks

    Damon

    Damon,

    Pullman Radio's website is on a Word Press platform, and there's a nifty Auction plug-in available for it.  

    If you want to see how ours looks, go to PullmanRadio.com and click on "Auctions."  

    We're just beginning to migrate all our auction items over to the online platform (from our on-air auction, which we've been doing since 10/86), so we're still learning. Thus far, it's been simple and straightforward. A listener has to register before being able to bid on an item - an easy one-time registration.

    March 2018 update: Just stumbled across this post. We ended up abandoning that plug-in. It turned out to be clunky and didn't do what we needed it to do. So, we're on a search for a new solution ourselves.

    Rod,

    Thanks! That is exactly what we are looking for. Our website is not wordpress, but we could could create a separate site, and use this as a link to our site.
