CLIENT OVERVIEW:

Acro Media is a Drupal Commerce development agency that specializes in enterprise-level ecommerce. It is headquartered in Kelowna, BC, Canada. Acro Media has been building and maintaining Drupal websites for their clients for the past 7 years. On February 1st 2016 they acquired the Commerce Guys’ service division for United States and Canada. Now they are the exclusive delivery partner for Drupal commerce related projects.

UNIQUE NEEDS:

The client wanted us to build a simple auction setup, through which the users should be able to create their own auctions and place bids on other auctions. An auction should show the bid history as well as who the current top bidder is. Auctions should have a reserve price and the ability to be tagged or categorized in some fashion. The program should be web based and the data should be stored in a database.

OUR SOLUTION:

The goal of the project was to develop an auction platform using Drupal 8 and Drupal Commerce 2.X. The platform was built with a web-interface, which will allow the users to create their auction and bid on other auctions created by other users. There will be an admin panel which will have user analytics, reports and operational modules to run the portal efficiently. We did migrate the entire auction module from Drupal 7.x to Drupal 8.x. We have also built the same web based auction platform using Drupal 7 and Drupal Commerce 1.X as well.
