We’re happy to announce the latest version of WP Auctions is now available for download!
What’s HOT in v4.4?
Request to Bid: An amazing new feature which gives you the ability to restrict who can and cannot bid on your auctions! To activate this, you must enable the “Registered Users Only Mode” to limit auction bidding to registered users only.
Once you’ve done that you can add another layer of security to your auctions by enabling the feature to allow only bidders authorized by you to bid on any auction.
Every registered user will now have to submit a “Request to Bid” when they visit the “Bid” tab. You can then view their request in the special “Manage Bidders” admin panel. There’s still a lot more to the feature, you’ll just have to check it out for yourself once you buy the plugin!
