I used this to: Joomla 2.5.28
This is a great auction extension for Joomla, the support for this product is outstanding.
I bought this component as the website i needed would not be commercial and some of the other components were very expensive. This component works like it should and i have made some customisations with good help from the developer.

He is very good at proposing changes to fit your site.

Excellent work !!!

Great Extension

Posted on 08 April 2014
We are a charity and from time to time we need to run our own auctions. Tim's extension was an excellent fit in terms of cost and functionality. It does exactly what it is supposed to do and Tim provides very helpful responsive support. We are currently auctioning tickets and getting donations for a good cause.

Highly recommend this extension.

If you want an Auction facility on your site look no further.

The extension is easy to use. I had a few problems setting it up,mainly due to my stupidity, but the support was excellent and very prompt.

I have no hesitation in recommending this product.

Love this software!

I just purchased my 2nd version of this component for J3.0 (have been using it for J1.5 since 2007). So easy to set up and works well for our needs. I had a few requests for some minor changes and Tim replied the same day with the changes that I needed. Excellent component! Excellent customer service! Highly recommended!!!
This component is excellent overall technical assistance received by TIM and their service is excellent. It's great, I recommend all users to buy only this component of auctions because the other was an unsatisfactory experience, spend lots of money on other components and really the best investment was with BF Auction Plus.

The technical support was all the time with me and helped me a lot. I am very grateful. I recommend.
I have tried several auction components available for Joomla, and this is the best of the ones I have tried.

It has got good documentation and works fine as intended.


- support forum is slow. I have posted there several times with 2 posts taking 4-7 days to get an initial response, and 1 post left unanswered (after 2 weeks)

- the component is in some ways a work in progress. New updates do come with new features, so that is great. At the moment the main feature I think it lacks is the ability to lets users contact the sellers directly with questions.
I contacted Tim when doing a translation of his component after I bought it. I need to stress the I did several translations on major components in the last 2 months and I can state without any hesitation that this is the best service I got from ANY Joomla component provider. Not only did he get actively involved, he showed real interest. I must still test the component over time, but if this is the kind of service you get, it just sets a standard! I really appreciate the way in which he supports his product and the documentation is clear and instructive. Thank you Tim!
