Recommendations on Online Auction and Coupon plugins for WordPress?

I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for plugins for a nonprofit to use for Online Auctions (ie. a benefactor has donated a car that we auction off at the website and where the proceeds go to charity).

We’re also interested in finding a Coupon plugin where people buy a product or service via a coupon where the supplier gets most of the payment and the rest of the payment goes to a charity.

Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated. And I will, of course, do my own research on available plugins … but it’s always worthwhile getting other people’s recommendations.

Thanks … Michael

    Hey Micheal,

    Greeting and thanks for posting on the forums.

    While I do not have any personal recommendations, here are a couple of links.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jaspreetchahals-coupons-lite/

    These have been recommended a few times now.

    In that case, you can use MarketPress and its commission feature.

    You can set it up as a multisite store where merchants can sell their stuff and a % off sales goes to the main PayPal account, which can be of your charity. Wouldn’t that be a nice idea ?

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers, PC

    Hi PC,

    You’re becoming my regular mentor on things WordPress/BuddyPress … thanks.

    In doing my own investigations regarding coupons/gift certificates I’ve come across WP Gift Certificate Reloaded Modular v2.0 (which is a pretty stange name for a plugin) at https://www.wpgiftcertificatereloaded.com/wp-gift-certificate-reloaded-modular and it looks like that plugin can do what I want … but it does look a little “edgy” to me, so I’ll proceed with caution and will test the plugin thoroughly.

    Thanks again and best regards … Michael

    Hey Michael, you are most certainly welcome :slight_smile: I am always happy to help !

    That plugin looks sleek to me but we can only trust once you have tested it. So use it on a test site and make sure that its the right choice before you deploy it live.

    Cheers, PC
