Im developing an auction site like ajax penny auction. My problem is how to create autobidder in my application similar to the one in penny auction.Ive seen that their autobidder is taking one bid in each second. How can I do such a task? Is it done by scheduling a cron in every second ? or is there any other convenient method for that ?

Create My Own Auction Site Bored Need A Challenge

I am going to create my own auction site as a challenge. Its something I have wanted to do after learning how to create a small shopping cart.

I intend to keep the database as small as possible, so I was thinking that storing the auction description in text files could be the way to go.

Everything else would need to go in the database ie start time, end time, bids etc....

Do you think this is a good idea to store just Auction descriptions in text files.

Is it not better to keep as much info out of the database as possible?

When an auction id is called from the database it displays the info from the database but also opens the corresponding text file on the server the contains the description.

Auction Software

I have boggled my mind looking for commercial quality auction software. I have found about 6 different php/mysql auctions. Although, none of them are what I am looking for.

So far seems to be the best. I have played around with it for weeks. The sloppy coding has just driven me nuts. It just wont cut it

I am looking of for the php equivalent of mewsofts auction software.

Obviously, we are willing to pay a good amount of money.

Has anyone developed really good auction software written in PHP? If so, can I get a link to a demo?

Is Bidware And Probid Based Off Of Auction?

I purchased a auction software package and a auction software package and I am wanting to set up a long term auction site. I purchased them both to see which one I liked better. My problem is, anyone can clearly look at the file structure on both auction packages and see they were created by the same person/company.

Many of the file names are identical and the coding in 90% of both programs match. PHPProbid's licensing state they own the software and Bidware's licensing also state they own the software. I want to put some money into my new auction business but I do not want to get into any legal battles over illegal software.

I would not think that both above companies can claim ownership legally of the same software. Can anyone tell me if the software these two companies are selling is basically a open source package such as PHPAuction that both are simply claiming ownership of? Thanks in advance for your answers to my dilemma.

C# - Open Source Auction Project?

The project i'm taking a part needs some simple auction functionality. The basic concept is:

There is list of products of two types: fixed cost and auction. Registered users can buy the fixed cost product or bid for auction product. The list of all products is predefined by admin (5 fixed costs, 5 auctions). So it looks like simple auction or shopping cart with auction functionality. I don't care about the platform (but prefer php/lamp, ruby/ror, .net or java). Does anybody know any good open source solution which fits to my needs i described?

Check That An Auction Is Finished - Triggered Processing?

I have a few ideas about this but here is what I need to do and just wanted some second opinions really. I am writing a small auction site in PHP/SQL, but I have come up against a hurdle.

When an item finishes, much like eBay, I need to be able to tell that it's finished and send out the emails to who has won it and who has sold it. The only way I can think of is to schedule a piece of code to keep checking what auctions have ended but surely there is a better way?
