I have noticed that the auction owner seems to be able to bid on his own auction which is not suppose to be that way.
Also, auctions are not showing in Shop and any other locations except in the specific store's location.
Thanks for you immediate attention.April 11, 2015 at 4:06 pm #41108
I have to test those things and also have to discuss with our developer team about this. I will inform you tomorrow. If you can tell us about your requirement in auction feature then it will helpful. If possible then provide me some screenshot.

So far that's what I have noticed. Perhaps the option for bidding on a auction-owner item (button) should be disabled with a message “you cannot bid on your own auction” message if clicked.
I will look around more to see if I can see anything else.

All the feature are coming from the simple auction plugin. We did integration with Dokan. But i have forwarded those issue to our team if possible then they will work with it.

I have contacted the WooCommerce auction plugin you requested for your auction plugin and they said:
You need to have ability to create your own auction via some 3rd party plugin like multiple vendors plugins. Keep on your mind that site owner can create regular users and test them. It's up to site owner to manages and defines unacceptable behaviour on auction site she / he owns and act on reported issues. Also keep on your mind that our plugin does not officialy support multiple vendor plugins, it's up to site owner to implement that and eventual restrictions on bidding and other modifications if needed. We provide woocommerce auction extension plugin, nothing else.
So, since your plugin is based on theirs and you require us (your customers) to buy this plugin as well, I think you need to make this adjustment.April 22, 2015 at 10:49 pm #42071
I also noticed that when an auction ends, the item still shows with no indication that auction ended. I think the system should display a note that auction has ended and it's no longer available and also stop displaying it after X number of days.
Please let me know where you are with this.

I had to buy the WooCommerce Simple Auctions because it was your add-on's requirement. The issue that I reported earlier about the owner of the auction being able to bid on his own auction was threw back at me by WooCommerce Simple Auctions people as I pasted their comments above.
I think when you are requiring customers to buy another add-on in order to use your add-on, you're ultimately are responsible for its functionality and issue with your plugin. I'm sure they were happy to get more business through your channel.

I guess there is a little confusion here. Dokan Auction add-on just make a bridge between WooCommerce simple auction plugin and Dokan plugin. It doesn't control or change any feature of WooCommerce simple auction.
The problem you states – “Owner can bid on their own auction” should be fix by original developer. Nothing to do with our add-on here.
you can find their documentations here: http://www.wpgenie.org/woocommerce-simple-auctions/documentation/
we contact with them (wpgenie) before release this add-ons, but they refused to create a new plugin or provide supports dedicated to Dokan plugin. so, we created this add-on which works only as bridge between two plugins, nothing else.April 23, 2015 at 9:59 pm #42162
As I mentioned to your colleague earlier, what “WPGENIE”, the developer of Woocommerce auction has developed is based on the notion that Admin is the one who will be doing the posting not multiple sellers which is the case in Dokan's plugin. True, you have built a bridge between the Simple Auction and Dokan, but as a customer I don't have a choice when buying your plugin to have an auction feature because you required me to buy Simple Auction. I think Dokan needs to make proper adjustments so such plugin would mesh well will Dokan's product line which is a multi-vendor WooCommerce plugin.
To not to go back and forth about this and making a resolution that would benifit all, I think the adjustments should be fairly simple for a well-talented developers such as yourselves to place a condition so that bidder cannot bid if the user id is the same as registered user.

I am afraid that you are slightly wrong.
WooCommerce auction plugin don't have such feature that admin can't bid on their own auction. Admin can bid on their own auctions (test it your self without Dokan).
anyway, as Wpgenie guys are the original developer so it would have been more easier for them to tell how to prevent admin's to bid on their own auctions.
Our add-on just simply bring backend auction options at front-end under seller's Dashboard. However, we will try our best to give you a solution. Just give us a little bit time.
