I suggest you ...

Support standard auction format

Currently only BIN sales are supported. A way to reserve stock for auction items listed to eBay could be possible.

    I'd like to add that the ability for OpenBay to relist auctions would be ideal as well.. either when they sell, pull out another one and re-list it, or if the auction doesn't sell, relist it.. all using the same information that was used on the previous auction.

    unfortunately not much movement on this. i would love to have automatically recurring auctions that were linked to my items in OpenCart.. Especially if we could dual link items.. have BIN sales, and Auction Sales of the same item at the same time... It would really drive sales for me....

    I was just about to add this myself! :-) Glad I'm not alone in wanting this. Here's my 2p just in case....

    Like a lot of sellers I use auction-style-listings, with low or no reserve prices to drive traffic to my other Fixed Price listings. It would be great to do this through OpenBay too. There doesn't seem to be much difference between auction-style & fixed price listings as far as OpenBay is concerned.

    I guess for safety's sake the specified number of products for sale in the listing would need to be grabbed by the auction-style-listing so it wasn't available to other marketplaces such as Play or Amazon (remaining stock could be dropped back into general availability in OpenCart if the listing ended without selling everything), but aside from that the listing setup would be similar AFAICT? Obviously we'd need to be able to specify Start Price and Reserve Price values in OpenBay.

    Fingers crossed....
