It is also known as Swoopo Clone or Telebid. it not only allows one to create one’s own fully-functional auction website but also allows to manage the complete online auction operation like creating new auction within seconds, managing auctions, managing bids from customers, generating transaction reports, presenting the “buy it now” option, generating discount coupons and configuring hot lists among other things.

There are two kinds of auction which is taken up by this penny auction software. They are the regular penny auction and the "buy seats" auction in which users must buy seats to participate in bidding. Site administrator has the control to regulate auction steps, auction time, date format, bid increment, graphic design layout, user authentication and other parameters within the admin control panel. The auction software is written in Object Oriented Programming in PHP and mySQL which is usually referred as LAMP (Linux, Apache, mySQL and PHP). And bids can be placed through either getting online or through SMS.

The standard penny auction software packages contain encrypted code that can be installed on one domain and the professional version contains non-encrypted code that can be installed on multiple domains. Standard penny auction software should include the following: design customization and scalability for the unique themes of the website and also to make it look attractive.
