Hi Everyone,

Im setting out to build out a concept I have for an live auction experience and Id love to figure out ways to do this on Shopify. Does anyone have any advice? Anyone with great coding skills interested in working on this with me?

Im happy to answer any questions and I sincerely appreciate any advice or references.

I expect that Im going to need a genuine shopify-whisperer (with full-stack ninja skills) to pull this off, so please feel free to post any references to ferrari-level developers if you know any!

Hey, @AuthenticBizCo.

Elias here with Shopify Support. That's a great question!

There are a couple of third-party apps, such as Product Auction or Tipo Product Auction, which can help set up your products for auctioning. Both of these apps offer a free trial, so I'd recommend seeing which one fits your store and has the features you need. However, depending on which other areas you're looking to customize, coding is generally for customizing your theme or aesthetics. If you're interested in custom coding, you can hire a developer to assist you with this - You can find one on Shopify Experts. Experts are experienced with custom coding and may be able to help create a solution for your concept. 

If you need any assistance with either of these apps, you can also reach out to the developers through the contact information found in the Support section of their app pages. 

With that said, which other specific features are you looking for in a live auction?
