Net Auction system

Auctions is an event or process where a product or goods can be sold or bought or can be bidded. For any product which is placed in the auction will be the first bid by customers looking to buy it and in the other way out it will be placed for sale by owner or admin. Basically, in our project we will come up with an online auction system wherein the products can be added to the system and they will be provided with needed details that are needed for being placed in the bidding process. Once a product or good is added to the system, the system will approve them via admin and then allowed for bidding. Bids will be accepted from different customers and whoever gets the highest bid will be buying the product.

Each product that has been allowed or placed for bidding will have an initial start bid price and no customer can bid a price less than that. A specified quantity of product will also be provided. The timeframe for which a product will be open for bidding will also be provided at the time of adding the product and after that customers cannot bid for it.

Auctions basically can also be like vocational process too wherein people say their prices and there will be a bidder calling the prices in an event organized specifically for certain products. But our system will allow a secured process where transactions will be done online and final sales price for a sold product can be known only when it is done with bidding.

User Types:

Admin Customers Vendors

Admin: Admin will approve a customer who can place bids. He can also approve a vendor who will register the product in the application which is placed for bidding. Admin can see all info related to bids that have been placed on any product and approve the highest bid and declare the customer who has won the bidding. Admin is the one who will have access to admin panel.

Customers: They will register themselves to place bids and purchase products. A registered customer can view his transactions and bids that he or she has placed. He or she can update his or her profile info too after getting registered.

Vendors: They will register and also add the products that are to be placed for bidding and then sold to a customer whoever bids the highest in bidding.  vendors registration has to be confirmed by admin and then only can log in to the application and then will have the option to add the products. Add products will be provided with info like minimum bid price, bid end date, bid start date, a picture of the product to be bidded. The vendor will also have the option to view the bids that have been received for his or her products, the option will be there to edit the profile.

Bid: This module is the main module for this application and it is basically the heart of this system, we may need a web service for this app. As per feasibility is concerned we will have n number of customers logged in for an online bidding process. Logged In customers are basically the registered customers who are basically approved by an admin to participate in the bidding. this module will have the option to show Picture of the embedded product, Start price of the product, Quantity, Bid start date, Bid end date, Enter Bid price and submit. These options will be available for each customer whoever is logged in for bidding for a particular product. we can come up with a concurrent bidding system where n number of customers can place biddings at a specified timeframe or allow only a certain number of customers to place bidding.

Admin panel: This module is an important module wherein products will be added to the system and also be managed. Products can be added to the system via vendors. Each vendor will be allowed to add a product after being registered and approved to showcase their products in the auction. Admin panel will have options to view the products saved by vendors. This module will allow management of added customers and vendors also. Whenever a vendor registers it is saved to the database via admin panel. Similarly, customer registration info will be saved to the application via admin panel. It actually provides an efficient way of saving the data and managing it.

Existing System

The transaction between the buyer and the seller was being carried out conventionally where everyone will gather and shout out their bidding prices and this actually is not secure and a tedious way of bidding for products.  This process will also be affected by influences of personalities from bigger societies.

One of the concepts that the online auctions were started with was the idea that people could police themselves, but those with the intent to take advantage of others have found the means to bypass this mild safeguard as well.  It was envisioned that with the opportunity to give ‘feedback’ on each other as buyers and sellers, honesty would remain intact.  However, some have found a way to inflate their ratings which makes them appear trustworthy to do business with.
