No bids, just buy now and make offer

July 5, 2013

    I’m creating a site for a client who has a number of domains for sale.

    I want to offer “buy it now” and “make offer”, but the available options through the control panel are “bid” and “make offer”, or if “Buy Now Only = Yes” only the make offer option is available.

    Is there anyway to configure the Auctionpress theme to show Buy It Now for a displayed price (like ebay) with Make Offer underneath, so no bidding at all, or would I be better using the Shopperpress theme to set a fixed price sale and adding a make offer option to that using a Paypal plugin to just add a buy now button?

    Hope I’ve explained myself clearly!

    Hi Mark,

    I see this is an old thread but I’m interested in a similar question and a few other related questions. I’d like to have a “Make an Offer” button available. However, I would like the “buyer” to be able to make offers that are not just monetary, but are also items that they have listed. For example, one user to offer to trade a video game for another user’s DVD movie. Essentially, I’m talking about trading.

    With that, how can I change the button labels to “Trade Now” and “Make an Offer?” Additionally, how can I expand the “Make an Offer” option, if available, to include items (either through text, link to their listing, etc.) and not just money?

    My coding experience is extremely limited but I would like to take a stab at revising these labels and their functions.

    I see that you listed pages to modify the codes in your previous response, but how to I access this?

    *I also noticed that the original posted mentioned having a Make Offer option. Why don’t I see this? Is this something that was available in an older version and is no longer an option, or should I see it?

    Appreciate any support you, or anyone else, can provide.

    @Akua This will require customization as the Theme does not currently have this feature.You can post here >>
