Ecommerce

Hi Guys,

I’m looking for a gem or extension that could allow me to build an ecommerce store in which the following are possible:

  1. When a user sets up an account, they should be able to add their own products to the shop. (think eBay.com)
  2. Products listed can be listed as either straight-sale or auction-type sale.

Thanks in advance.

Do you know about Spree? - https://github.com/spree/spree

It’s a ecommerce gem, and there are plenty of plugins on github… on a quick search I found a plugin for auctions… https://github.com/puneetgupta/spree_auctions

Maybe it can be what you are searching…

Good luck,

Carlos Figueiredo

Unfortunately that gem is not maintained.

Spree is a ecommerce platform well maintened, and customizable…

I 've never tried spree_auction… I just put as example that spree can also deal with auctions with some customization… Github are plenty of others gems to help you… if you find any that fit your necessity, let us know…

Or if not… it’d great say us more about your necessity. maybe someone else can help you more if know exactly what you are searching…

Yes, I’ve used Spree before and digging through the docs as we speak. Was wondering if anyone would throw out something I hadn’t heard of before that would have the auctioning piece included, but it looks like spree is pretty much as good as it gets for a good/stable ecommerce foundation, plus it’s customizable. Thanks for the chat…sometimes, it’s just about hearing someone else say it ;-). I’ll also dig into spree_auction a bit more, just because it’s not maintained doesn’t mean it’s broken or unfixable.
