You can offer your users the possibility to choose the buy it now option for an “Auction” type product. So they can purchase the product for a fixed price bypassing the current auction.
You can set the fixed price of the related product in product editing page.
Users will see an extra button on the product page, from where they can purchase the product directly.
What happens if the bidding price, exceeds the buy now price? Good question. In YITH > Auctions > General > “Auction options”, you will find 2 options with regards to what to do in this situation.
- Hide ‘buy now’ when a bid exceeds the buy now price: Buy now option will disappear if the price has been exceeded.
- Hide ‘buy now’ after the first bid: Buy now option will disappear if a bid is placed, regardless of the amount.
