We are here with a new gateway integration for auto-payment in the product auction app i.e, Checkout.com. You can use this feature for auto charging the auction winner once the auction is ended.

Go to “auction configuration” and then enable autopay to use the autopay feature . Once the autopay feature is enabled, you can opt for the gateway you want to integrate for autopayment. To use checkout.com, choose the same and save. (refer to the below-attached screenshot)

Now, please check the additional settings for autopay explained below:

BULK AUTOPAY

In case you want to charge your winners in bulk at a particular time of the day, you can enable the “bulk autopay orders” feature. For example: Charging all the winners declared in the last 24 hours at 2:00 PM every day.

Please note: In case of bulk autopay, there will be a single order if a winner has won multiple auctions.

Front-end flow:

Let us checkout the front-end flow of these features from the customer’s point of view.

Once the bidder clicks on “Place bid” to place the first bid, there will be a pop-up asking for the card details of the bidder so that the card is charged automatically in case the bidder wins the auction.

Once the card details are saved, there will be another pop-up asking for the “shipping method” that the bidder needs to save.

Moreover, the customer can update the card details and shipping methods from the “my account section here.
