We need an auction page but not like ebay. We have a special bidding system. Only the admin can sell items on this page. An auction will start at a price the admin can set. With every bid a user made the price will go down 10 cents. Every bid will cost the user 1 credit. To make a bid the users must buy bidcredits. there a two possible ends to an auction. At a price the admin can set and at a time the admin can set. What is reached first will end the auction. Example: startprice is 500€ and with every bid the price goes 10 cents down. The first user places a bid and the price will be 499,90 €. The second user places a bid and the price will be 499,80 € and so on. the admin can say the auction stops at 300€. the user who makes a bid when the price is 300,10€ and reduces the price to 300€ will be automatically the winner. If the endtime the admin set will be reached before the endprice of 300€ the winner of the auction is the current bidder. The price is at 350,50€ but the endtime is reached the user who made the last bid is the winner.
The admin can set the following things: Startprice, hidden end price, hidden end time and the latest end of the auction. The users will see only startprice and latest end time. Example:
hidden end price: 300€ ( not visible to users )
hidden end time: [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] ( not visible to users )
latest end time: [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view]
So the users will see this auction will end somwhere until the [url removed, login to view] at 03.00pm.
