 Shopify stands out for me if it comes to an e-commerce platform for providing auction services.

I’ll tell you why.

Shopify is a SAAS based platform to create an online store or for starting a multivendor marketplace service. They have multiple applications that will help you customize and make it compatible with the result you are looking for. One such application for providing the best product auction service on the Shopify is the Product Auction app.

This app comes with a 7-days free trial period so that you can explore and test the app from your own end before paying for it.

Features you’ll get with the product auction app:

  • Enable auctions on your products and let your customers bid.
  • You can notify the customers about the upcoming auctions on your store.
  • Shopify lets you have a separate menu for all the products on auction on your storefront.
  • You can add unlimited auctions to your store without any extra charges. It allows you to add up to 500 auctions at a time using CSV files.
  • Automatic emails will be sent to the losers & the winners of the auction which, by the way, can be configured by the merchant as well.
  • You will have access to viewing all the bidding history from the backend.
  • You can enable/disable the option of auction joining fee from your customers.
  • Lets you declare more than one auction winners and autopay them the winning amount.
  • Admin can enable/disable the ‘Add To Cart’ button if the bid amount exceeds the actual price.


  • Product Auction Page
  • Listing of products on auction


Mark: If you are using the Shopify Multivendor Marketplace app then you can use the product auction integration featured app, i.e., product auction for sellers which will let the merchant allow his sellers to create products on auctions from their end as well.

This is just a glimpse of the product auction app for Shopify, to know more, drop down your query.

Thank you!
