A bundle of features that are at the top end of the online auction software platforms.
Layout, features, countdown timer, options to have multiple items from multiple auctions into 1 account, accounting features...
While the price is competitive with similar platforms, I would like to see a greater range of multiple pricing options available to auction companies. Something along the line of flat fee per auction, monthly fee regardless of traffic flow, a max cost per auction, etc. I would state this about any auction software as some auction companies starting out would love this platform but may need lower initial cost to get going and then increases based on increase in number of auctions. Auction Method is fantastic about working with auction companies but more pricing options would bring in a greater number auction companies just entering into the online area.

I love my website! They hand built my auction site last year to suit my company's needs which anywhere else would have cost me thousands. We are consistently evolving the site to keep market relevant which helps me grow and keep my edge in a very competitive market! Easy to use, incredible service, low prices! Best there is out there, hands down! Auctionbridge .bid!
PRO: Ease of use for my company, my bidders and for my Affiliates.
PRO: The fact that the company treats me like I am there only customer. I know the owners by name because They care enough to know your name too.
PRO: They saved me so much money upfront and after.
I was a startup online auction company with little to no money to invest in a 200k website. I hit the jackpot with Auction Method.
PRO: Terminate at will contract! If I ever don't like them I can simply say I am out.
PRO: They thought enough about the future of my company to have a contingency plan in case of a catastrophe. That means my site can keep going, even if they are all suddenly struck by lighting! (God Forbid!) Can your software maker/management company say that??? Mine can!!
PRO: This software program saved me so much money! $$$ It's all in one package from easy automated accounting to billing to affiliate & bidder invoicing to Intuitive consignor tools, Integrated Cc payment management solutions.
PRO: One on one developmental support & server management.
If I have a problem they are always there for support almost immediately.
There are NO CONS, it's perfect because the owners worked with me from start to finish customizing the software and the website to suit our company's short and long-term goals to maximize our ability to grow.
At first you will be tempted to try to rewrite the software yourself to every little tweak that pops in your head! Trust me, just use it for a few weeks and then start to talk to them about how you want it customized because you can not anticipate how you will need the program to work for you until you have it working for you for a couple weeks. It will save you so much time trying to get the program to do something that isn't really as efficient as you first thought it would be!!
Jennifer from Auction Bridge Llc
No cons only pros! This company will rule the market soon!
Molly from West Auctions
Since our auction management software is web-based and integrated with our online auction bidding platform, it is so easy to handle invoicing, user-communications, and especially data entry. I don't have to use a bunch of other software applications to do my job. AuctionMethod gives me all the tools I need, right there on our own website.
