Bidango is a an offshoot of the popular Pure Holiday Homes website which provides home owners with the opportunity to market their home to holidaymakers online. The Bidango auction site seeks to address a gap in the market where home owners can find it difficult to sell unsold weeks in off-peak periods and those available at short notice.
Whilst work in ongoing with this site, the most notable features on this site so far are:
- Integration of the homeowners admin console on the Pure Holiday Homes website with the auction site using our API. This means homeowners can select and send their properties for auction at the click of a button.
- Properties sent for auction are sent back the Pure Holiday Home website using the auction feed API which is used to promote those items for sale by auction on the main site.
- Homeowners’ user accounts are integrated with an account on the auction site so that they can respond to questions left by bidders on the auction site.
- Deposit payments for the holidays are paid for on the auction site using a fully integration Paypal solution that also informs Pure Holiday Homes and the homeowner who has won the auction and that they have confirmed the purchase of the holiday.
