The Backstory

The auction events that take place offline require tons of organized efforts, setting up a venue for the sellers and buyers to gather, making arrangements for all kinds of necessary auction requirements and more. Moreover, the buyers from remote areas are not able to visit the auction event due to some reason or other.

Coming to the expenditure, the money spent for organizing a well-organized auction event with a superb venue, food arrangements, gatherings, security, entry tickets and more is a tad bit high which is not affordable for all.

Therefore, to solve this challenge, the CP Bids online auction platform was developed with custom client requirements. The client was already running a successful auctioning events business and now wanted to take it online for the ease of its buyers and sellers.

The online auctioning platform CP Bids now helps the client to organize the mobile phone and inventory auction events virtually without having to tackle all the issues related to organizing the events on-site. It allows the sellers to auction their products in bulk while the buyers can bid for winning the products without having to gather at the same place and at the same time.

What is CP Bids?

The application CP Bids(CellPoint Bids) is an online marketplace, designed to cater to auctioning events with all the necessary features, catering to buyers, sellers and admin. It has been strategically designed for hosting the auction events of bulk mobile phones and their other accessories. It allows the sellers and buyers across the country to participate in the auctioning events.

For Sellers

The sellers are allowed to sell their inventory and products in bulk in multiple combinations whereas the buyers are invited to place bids for the different products/stock. The sellers can add their products under different tags and categories while setting the start and ending time for the auction. The seller is solely in charge of setting the minimum bid pricing for the bulk products.

For Buyers

The buyers are allowed to place their bids with a minimum price of the lot as well as an increment price. The buyer with the highest bid price gets to win the auction and access the inventory/products after the payment of the bid price. The buyer that loses is also notified of the outbidding with real-time notifications on the app. Apart from this, the buyers can simply purchase the entire lot with a “buy now” button and pay for the products in full.
