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

dspx: Bug that should be fixed, see below github link.

scorch82: #1 is a bug that should be fixed on http://github.com/Shadowed/QuickAuctions/tree/master but I haven't had a chance to specifically test it yet.

#2, Basically what Vidboy said, the threshold value is basically a "If an item is sold at this, I still make profit but not really enough to be worthwhile." If it always posted it at the threshold then you would kill your profit margin and in the long term kill the market faster.
eliminate2: Nope there isn't.

Re: Post Cap and fallback to threshold price

Originally posted by scorch82
First off, excellent addon!

Excellent move getting on the fallback functionality, if you can't go below the threshold. Two things though:

1)
As mentioned, it does seem to ignore the post cap, so let's say i have 20 glyph of uselesness in my bags. When it hit post, the addon detects that the lowest item is below my threshold. Since I've enabled the fallback, it posts 5 of them @ 59g (these will never sell, but hopefully drive the price up a bit)
However, the next time i click post, it will put 5 more on the AH, totaling 10 up for auction, which I'm thinking is a bug, since it doesn't make sense.

2)
Second, I'm not sure why you want it to post at the fallback price, but I'm no AH pro. As for my self, I'd like to have it post at the threshold value instead! That way, if the ones below actually sell, my items might end up being the lowest, especially if it's a lonely bird put up by someone just dumping 4 malachite from a leveling toon.
The best way to make this, might even be to add a "Undercut the best you c an, but never below the threshold." In other words, you're putting stuff on the AH, hoping for a sell, but not forfeiting your calculated profit. It's nice to have most of my stuff on AH instead of my banks, as stated below that's worth the posting price for me. But to maximize sales, I'd rather have it up at the threshold value than the fallback value.

Again, excellent work, nice keeping up with the suggestions, thanks alot!
Point 1 I can understand needing a fix of somesort

point 2 the reason I wanted things at the fallback price was to keep the average price up and if the price does go up when you scan your "fallback" priced posts will get canceled so you can repost and undercut. An easy fix for you is to turn this feature off and when you have all those glyphs in you bags that are below your threshold just lower your fallback price to your threshold, your profits may drop but if that's the way you want to do it this would work for you. Not everyone uses QA other programs use set prices based off of average prices so newbs know what to sell at, keeping the average up helps fight the lowballers who don't really know the glyph market.

Is there a way to setup 2 different banker auto mail?

1 Alt with 4x 32slot inscription bags isn't enough >< gonna need a second.

But can't seem to figure out how to auto mail a second banker option.

Everytime I use "Post" and there are auctions under my threshold, it will post my postcap for fallback. This is of course a nice option. But if you posting it a few times a day, there is going a lot of glyphs into the auction house for fallback, because it ignores the post cap for new posts. It would be nice if it keeps postcap like for undercutting or posting for normal fallback

Would it be possible to list items we cannot craft, but flag to be crafted in the tradeskill window?

I look at the AH for the best gem/glyph prices and sometimes the highest ones I cannot craft so I find people to cut/craft them for me then post.

It'd be helpful if I could see them when opening my tradeskill window so I knew which to find someone for.

Perhaps just having an "x" or mark it in red like when we're out of materials to know they are the ones we cannot craft.

Thanks!

Vidboy's suggestion will more or less do what I want and is probably a lot easier to implement. Thanks for the consideration, though

canceling my own auctions :(

Suddenly QA is cancelling my own auctions coz I'm undercutting myself...

It displays my own characters name as the undercutter and cancels the auction.

What might cause this?

I don't do anything weird. just post, cancel and post all the time

Yup thanks for that Vidboy!

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.

Program works great the way it runs now....the only thing I'd like to have an option to turn on/off the ability when posting that if the item is below your threshold to post at the fallback price in stead of not posting at all.

Holding items in your bags waiting for the price to go up is fine but when you're dealing with 350 glyphs it's easier to store your glyphs in the AH and when the prices go up QA will cancel your fallback priced auction so you can repost and start undercutting.

I think this should be an option based on your needs per grouping as costs to post items vary.

Shadowed I hope you had a beer on me.
