Dutch auction with a twist

Postby mkbyri » Tue Nov 23, 2010 10:23 pm

I am looking into Web Auction for the first time. So far looks promising. Does anyone know if it can do "dutch'' auctions? If it can, here's a twist. I need an dutch auction system that locks the a higher bidder at his bid amount rather than the customary.

Do-able? Anyone heard of something like this?

Sorry, I don't mean a "dutch" auction in a pure sense. I should say a multi-unit auction where the winner pay their actual bid amount.
Thanks.

Web Auction basically only has 2 settings right now. Regular and reversed. You would need to modify the source code to achieve different results (although such modifications have been made for particular projects before without too great a difficulty if you are familiar with PHP and Xataface).
