Auction starting bids
I put up a test auction on my site as an example and so users could get an idea of how to use it before making a mistake while bidding on a live auction (it's straight forward enough but for the newbies to the 'net........).
Anyway, I got the following as a response to the first bidder on the test auction:
"This is just a test auction, but this item had zero bids and a starting price of $500.00 - I tried to place a bid of $500.00 and got a error message saying I had tried to place a bid that was too low and that I needed to place a bid of at least $525.00 - I did that and was told I was the high bidder and then saw I was the only bidder... might have a small glitch in the formula or something???"
Which brings up the question; shouldn't the opening bid be accepted at the same value of the stated starting price? And is this an easy fix by updating a couple lines of code (as opposed to waiting for an upgrade)?
