We have setup a special installation of xcAuction right here so you can actually see it work from both the perspective of the visitor that would come to your website, and from the perspective of the site administrator. There are a few things of note about the demo version of xcAuction installed here that you should realize. So please be sure to review the information here before starting the demo. There are some important facts that will certainly help you in your evaluation.

  • This is a complete operational installation of xcAuction, but certain administrative functions will only be emulated. For example, you will not be able to make configuration changes, as any errant configuration changes could potentially disable the site - if only temporarily. So to make sure that the demo stays operational for all users, some of those features are disabled for the safety of the demo site.

  • We will not "harvest" any information that you might enter or use when trying out options in the application. Please feel free to use your own email address for test registrations, and we promise that we will not send you anything else based on that. If you are concerned about your email address and do not want to provide it, then please use an address using the domain "example.com". That is a domain that will never be used for a real site on the internet and we filter out all messages sent to that domain so that we are not erroneously sending any email to any persons or servers it is not intended for.

  • The demo system will automatically reset itself daily to a known configuration. This means that any activity placed on the site will be lost when the demo site resets itself. This occurs at about 3am EST (8am GMT) every day. In the event you are using the demo site at that moment, your login will also be reset. Simply create another account and login again. We do this to allow you to see what a fully populated or active installation might look like at anytime you want to visit the demo site.
