Both as a lead up to an open live auction and a silent action at an event. No limit on the number of items that can be included in the online auction or the number of images. The auction can also be completely online. Also no commissions or auction fees. The mobile friendly website means bidders can make bids without leaving their table. Also those who couldn’t make it can still participate.
You can charge auction fees and commissions if you are auctioning items on behalf of someone else as in the case of Virtual Car Boot Sales.
The auction items can be listed in the Shop online without being published so at the conclusion of the auction the items are published with the winning bid price so that the successful bidder can pay online. This can also be protected by a password issued to the winning bidder.
