Looking for the best Auction script (Itechbids, Phpprobid,??)

Discussion in 'Scripts' started by sethuhdiah, Jan 31, 2008.

    I really need an auction script that can handle up to say 1mil users per day, and has 0 security holes.
    I have been thinking between itechbids and phpprobid but I want to know if there is anything better?
    I want to know that I could built an enterprise auction with this script and it will hold up perfectly fine.

    Please give me all comments about auction scripts.
    Thanks

    Itechbids is far better. I installed it myself. It supports everything in auction and many extra features
    like 4 level affiliate, private auction etc. The best part is the pricing - almost half than that of probid.

    I went through itechbids and phpprobid and neither of them were really good enough CMS wise, so I went with Joomla Auction Factory which seems to be working fine and the modifications are easy enough to make.
    Thanks for the tips

    I paid for this script. I installed and it would not let users place auctions. I had them install and it would not work. I emailed them to tell them and tell them that they had a problem with the category.php page. They even had the problem on the demo one. They then fixed their demo and told me that they didnt have any problems. I asked for a refund after many back and forth emails to customer service. They ignored my request. I submitted a request through paypal. Paypal just deferred it. So I am out 125 for a non working script.

    I did decide to go with phpprobid. It is kind of expensive, but at least the script works properly.

    being a professional web developer, i wanted the best possible auction script for my own site. after reviewing all the available options, i decided to try itechbids. Initially i was a little skeptical because of its low price but they provided free trial & installations!!! And I was completely bowled over. On top of this the support system is simply superb. Hats off, will surely try other products from this company.

    I agree. This platform shouldn't be used for unwarranted advertisement.

    I actually have a problem with phpprobid install.

    I set up the MySQL database in my CPanel ->
    created the database: items
    listed as: fashiona_items
    added the user to it: fashiona_derek
    password: derek

    Now I get the message when I put the stuff into the online database setup:
    The connection to the database server was established successfully.
    Error: Could not connect to the database items.

    Why can't I connect using the install included with the product and what could be wrong? I know the password is right. Am I filling out the install form wrong?

    Dont usee itech Bids. PhpProBids is the best and you can also get it for a very low cost..
    I have one copy of it. if you want to save your 180$,then i can give you the copy for 50$ only..

    phpprobid has good themes but expensive.

    Any of their themes costs 400 GB Pounds, but they have great themes for all types of auctions out there.

    I need something low cost and I need a Car themed auction script if any of you know where I could get one.


    Thanks

    Did you try to use a CMS and to add an Auction extension? for instance Joomla together with Auction Factory

    You can find a lots of templates (a lot free and very good ones for decent prices) and you can easy add Community features (forum, chat, profiles)

    Just a thought..

    I tried AJ Auction system, only to find out you couldn't work with it what so ever, unless of course you purchased the enterprise edition that retails at $ 2938.53, no refunds are available once downloaded the system. I hope this helps someone out there.

    By the way i am still looking for the perfect system, please PM if anyone has any suggestions.
