It would be great to have a widget to run auctions for products
Unfortunately, I have to say that this widget is unlikely to be released within Q2-Q3, we're so sorry about this 😥
Our engineers are swamped with urgent tasks at the moment, and I'm afraid we still don't have clear release dates for the new widgets.
I'm truly sorry for such a disappointing news, we're doing everything in our power to get back to developing new widgets.
Thank you for your understanding! 🙏🏻

Hello Is there any updates to the release time of this auction widget?
A huge thank you for the understanding, Cory! It does mean a lot to us 🙏🏻
That's okay, I understand! Busy busy. Busy is better than bored! Thank you for the update Helga.

We're so grateful that you're waiting for this widget to be released and I'm really sorry that we haven't done so yet.
I wish I could share the good news, however, I have to admit that we're not able to release this widget in the coming months. I'm extremely sorry about this!
You see, everything depends on our dev team's overall load and at the moment they are swamped with urgent tasks.
It surely doesn't mean that our Coming Soon widgets are not going to be developed, it just means that we'll try our best to get back to them as soon as we can.
We're terribly sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding 🙏🏻

I have found a competitor that has found a solution to my needs. Thanks for your help.
+ 1 for this feature!Just waiting for it to be released! Running a charity auction for kids with cancer, and a feature like this would mean a lot. And help us raise more money
Hi there,Thanks for your comment!We understand your point and I'll be happy to share our plans regarding this widget development.Since the widget is still under consideration, we don't have a particular way of its development yet, but our dev team will definitely conduct a research study. You're right that functionality for such a widget is somewhat complex, and it's unlikely we will develop the whole platform to run auctions via our widget.One of the possible solutions is integration with a ready-made third-party platform, where our widget will be a handy interface for quick integration into the website.
These are our thoughts at the moment, but a more concrete solution will be seen only after some research.
I hope it helped, but if any other questions remain or if you have any suggestions, please don't hesitate to leave your comments.
Excuse me but I'm profoundly confused by how you are creating a "widget" that matters at all. I'm surprised Cory down below even cares. Do you understand the complexity behind tracking the authenticated user (how does this get passed to elfsight), confirming they have the available funds via placing a hold (how does elfsight integrate with the payment processor), do you plan to save this data to your own database (this may be against the law in some locations), and how do you notify the website owner after auction closes (automated workflow, websockets, what?). If you can't program this yourself, you aren't getting a leg up by purchasing some stupid frontend widget. This is a fucking joke.
In the same boat as the other members. Whether I buy elfsight or not depends on how soon this launches.
Thanks a lot for your kind words!
We'll try the best we can to release this widget as soon as possible :)
Thank you. I'm eagerly waiting. Ready to choose a long-term option but within a month or two. Hopefully your launching of the action widget will be just in time!
I totally understand your frustration and we're truly sorry for having misled you.
We've made the Coming Soon section to demonstrate the widgets which we're planning to release so that our users have an idea about the upcoming solutions.
Since we realized that we're unable to set the release date, we didn't do so.
We're really sorry that it's taking longer than we expected and that the widget you desired to try hasn't been ready yet.
We do appreciate your trust in us, and we'll try our best to release new widgets faster.
Thank you so much!
Then why advertise like its already there. True clickbait and focusing on getting customer acquisition very poor
We totally understand you and we wish we could speed up the process!
Unfortunately, we're not able to set an ETA for this widget release as everything depends on the developers' overall load. We're doing our best to implement features and release the widgets you request as promptly as we can.
Thank you so much for your understanding!
How is the progress of the widget? I really need it badly
Thanks for your interest!
Unfortunately, we don't have release dates for our upcoming widgets at the moment, I'm very sorry for the inconvenience.
We do try to release them as soon as possible, however, everything depends on the dev team overall load. And we will be happy to notify you here as soon as we have this widget on the list.
Thank you for your understanding and patience!
Is there a release date for the new Auction Widget?
Thanks a lot for adding your request!
We also think Auction widget would be another good solution for your websites, so we do have it as our Coming Soon one. You are most welcome to take a peek at how it's going to look here - https://elfsight.com/auction-widget/.
And if you have any ideas or suggestions to share, please don't hesitate to write them here in the comments - it will be a huge contribution to releasing a great product 😊
Thank you so much!
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
