Quick Auctions 3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v3.1
by: Shadowed [More]
Quick Auctions is an auction tool to help speed up auctioning large quantities of items, especially canceling. While primarily Quick Auctions is built for large quantities of items, it can work fine for a few auctions as well. A bit of tweaking is required to get optimal settings, but it is very flexible and smart enough that you can use it for more than just mindlessly undercutting auctions by 1 copper every time. Summary window and craft queues are included so you do not have to memorize every item and quantity you need. Shows total materials required to craft as well as allowing you to click from the craft queue to craft so no searching through everything.

Slash command: /qa (/quickauctions)

Donations
A lot of time went into Quick Auctions, donations are appreciated but not necessary. And it's cheaper than buying gold while not being against the ToS!



Groups
Groups are how you manage what items should be managed by Quick Auctions. You can set auction settings either as a default, or per group giving you flexibility over everything without having to duplicate your settings 50 times. There are no limits to how many items can be grouped, see the configuration in /qa config to set them up.

Mail
Includes a timer in the top left of the mailbox indicating how much time before new mail data becomes available, and if you are not using Postal then QA provides its own auto looting for mail. The auto looter will work with the timer on the mailbox cache so it will loot everything, wait until new mail is available and then keep looting.

Auto mailing can now be done per item or per group to any character you want. For example, you can setup your banker to send uncut gems to your jeweler and you can setup your jeweler to send cut gems to your banker. The auto mailer is intelligent in when it sends mail off, and works best when using QA mail looter. If you are trying to loot herbs from your mailbox while auto mailing them to your scribe, it will send mail off whenever it sees your inventory is full. Basically, if you have 4 open slots it will auto mail/loot with only 4 slots, no more clearing out your bags to loot mail anymore!

General options
  • Smart undercutting - Instead of always using the undercut value, it will round it to the nearest gold piece if possible (10g99s -> 10g, 5g -> 5g - undercut price)
  • Smart cancel - Cancels auctions a bit smarter than usual, will cancel an item if you can re list it at a higher price and won't cancel it if items are below the threshold
  • Cancel with bid - Lets you choose if you want to cancel auctions with bids on them

Item options
  • Auto mail - Automatically mail items directly to your banker that are managed by QA
  • Post cap - How many of an item can be up at any one time (If you are undercut this number is reset)
  • Post time - How long to post an auction
  • Undercut - How much to undercut by
  • Bid percent - How much bid should be set to as a percentage of buyout
  • Threshold - Cap on how low an auction can go, if it'll be posted below the threshold price it won't be posted
  • Per auction - How many items to post per an auction
  • Fallback - If no other auctions are up, how much should it list an item for
  • Fallback cap - How high above the fallback an item can go, helps prevent posting a single Frostweave Cloth at 100g if someone sets it at an extraordinary price
  • Auto fallback - If the market price is below your thresold, QA will automatically post it at the fallback price
  • Maximum price gap - How much of a price difference is allowed between the lowest and second lowest items before QA undercuts the second lowest, this will also cancel your auctions if the price gap gets too high
  • Ignore stacks over - Allows you to ignore any auctions with a stack above X when determining price, useful if you want to post against the market price of 1 Abyss Crystal rather than the market price of posting 20 at once
What changed between 2 and 3?
While the configuration in QA2 was an improvement over the original QA, it still wasn't good enough. QA3 has a rewritten configuration and should be much easier for people to understand and use without having to learn to use QA through trial and error.

Scan speed has been increased quite a bit again and has been tightened up to reduce the chance of conflicts. In previous versions, QA would Query -> Wait 0.50 seconds -> Check Data -> Either parse it or wait 0.50 seconds, this made sure that whenever auctions were scanned all data was available including who posted them. The problem is, most of this data becomes available instantly after your initial 1-3 seconds. In 3 it's been changed: Query -> Check Data -> Wait 0.50 Seconds -> Parse or wait 0.50 seconds. Best case this means you will save 0.50 seconds per query (50 seconds/100 items), and worse case you won't see any speed increase.

Mail has been improved to make life easier for people, both a mail scrapper and a smarter mail sender were added. See the mail section above for more information.

Setting scope was improved, most basic options in QA including group settings have been moved to the global profile while server/faction specific settings can still be changed per profile. Letting you setup different profiles of how QA should handle different groups, without having to duplicate all of your group list over and over.
QA3 isn't done yet, and I have more planned still like summary improvements and easy buying of items.
Shadowed:
- Fix positioning of tradeskill frame
- Fixes for 4.3
- Fix tradeskill button positioning
- Should make canceling work again with hardware events
- Make open all work again, add posting back with necessary hardware event work, some initial work on canceling
- Initial conversions to WoWAce, nothing should actually work yet

Keep your eye on the bar it will move, slide the bar way up then type the number in to make sure it takes.

Is there a possibility that in the future we could great our own little "searches"? I'm finding myself wanting another button for Furs, Leathers, and Item Enhancements.

Thanks!

I just have one simple suggestion I was hoping you would take in to consideration. Could you implement a box next to Post Cap and Items per auction in which we could specify a number that is not currently available by just scrolling? The limited choices on such a small bar going from 1-1000 is a little frustrating =/

Also, any ETA on the enchanting scroll feature being implemented?

Thanks again!

Hi, when ever I cancel my auctions it cancels my own auctions even when my name is on whitelist. I think the reason for this is I am undercutting my auctions if say I have 5 glyphs posted and then created 10 more and post them. it undercuts the ones I already have instead of posting them at the same price. Is there a fix to this?

That is a good point, I'll add another standard per-group or global settings option to enable that. Don't particularly have time right now, so it'll probably be a week or so before I get around to it.


thank u for doing what i was asking 3 times now and 2 different sites
this is actually funny to read

"I would hope you realized by now that cross posting this not once, but twice is a very poor way to get something implemented.

This is not happening, end of story."

thats kinda wierd too did u suddently become clever or something?

Help

I started this using addon for the first time.

I was trying to get Quick Auctions 2 to post a stack of Saronite Bar (x20) per auction.
I listed the Threshold price at 20g.
I tried to make 'Items per auction' list as 20. But it's impossible since you can only scroll the number, so far I made it to list 26.
Fallback price at 29g. 100% fallback after.100% bid percent.
Post cap is 1 due to making sure.

Ok, on the AH. A stack of saronite bar is usually worth 30g+. One saronite bar is around 1g and 20s.

Right. I tried to click 'Post'. It won't post exactly because of one saronite bar. It says "Skipped [Saronite Bar] lowest buyout is 1g 60 s threshold is 20g" when in fact I was trying to post a stack of Saronite Bar (x20)

So, I changed the Threshold price to something like 50s.
Now, QA successfully posted a stack of Saronite Bar (x20) BUT
the price is so wrong, as it lists the buyout price as 13g!
13g compared to 30g? Did I put 17g (30 - 13) in the 'undercut by' thing?
No.

I looked at the Auction House. My 20x saronite bar auction is below a different auction by someone else; 9 saronite bars for 14g.

So, unless I did something wrong, this addon is horrible for sellers who try to sell stacks of herbs, ores, bars, etc.

Shadowed, way to be misleading!

To new players who are visiting this page, DON'T USE THIS ADDON! It's only good for glyphs. If you're looking for an addon that effectively posts herbs, ores, bars, etc. This is not the addon for you!

This addon is absolutely awesome!

The only problem that I'm having is that whenever I click "post", my auctions are always posted for 48 hours instead of the 24 hours that I specified in my settings. In the general settings I set post time to 24 hours and I've also tried to set each item group to 24 hours individually. Despite this, my auctions keep getting posted for 48 hours.

Other than this one issue, the addon is excellent and saves me a lot of time.

I wish there was a way to scan off Stack Amounts. For example I sell a ton of Infinite Dust in single stacks and very few stacks of 20. The stacks of 20 generally run about 1g cheaper each than the single stacks.

I would like there to be an option to scan all stacks of say 1, or less than 5, and than undercut off that price.

Not even sure if that is possible.

Right now I am using Auctioneer to post all my single stacks of Infinite Dust but that alone is causing quite a few problems. Everytime I scan with QA than Auctioneer wants the data too and generally it seems to lock up everything and I have to restart.

Thanks for a great add on.

Not sure if this is a bug or intended behavior, but QuickAuctions does not use the fallback price for newly posted items when the only competition left below the fallback price are your own older auctions.

Consider the following scenario:

I am selling Scrolls of Usefulness with threshold=100g and fallback=200g. Someone had posted a scroll at 110g so I posted three scrolls at 109g. In the meantime, two of my scrolls were bought and the one scroll at 110g has expired so the only scroll left is one of my own listed at 109g.
Now I use QuickAuctions to post new scrolls, but instead of posting them at the fallback price of 200g, they are posted at 109g. This simply doesn't make sense to me.

My understanding of the fallback price is that it is the price you would love to sell an item at and the only reason you are not listing the item at the fallback price is if someone else has posted the item at a lower price and you need to undercut them. In the above scenario, there is no other seller that you need to undercut, so it would make perfect sense to use the nicely profitable fallback price instead of the lowest price of your current listings. Do you see my point?

Apart from the above issue, I am extremely happy with QA. It's insanely useful.


EDIT:
In the above example, where your items are the only ones listed, there is actually a workaround for the problem of QA not posting at the fallback price: you can use the "smart canceling" option to cancel all your auctions and then post them again at the fallback price.
Unfortunately, this workaround does not work if someone else has an item listed beyond your fallback price (e.g., at 300g in the above example) because QA does not smart cancel your auctions in this case so that you can re-list your items at the fallback price (maybe this behavior would be a good addition to the smart canceling option).

First of all THANK YOU FOR GERMAN LOC! so i finally don't have to switch clients if i want to fetch data.
there is still a little localization error. if an item is skipped because the price is too low there is a little spelling mistake: "‹berpringe" should be "‹berspringe".
If an auction is skipped cause it's already up it is spelled correctly.
all fuctions are working perfectly with the deDE Client.
You see?

The upper spelling is correct.

Thanks alot
