About Auctionator


Auctionator needs a new developer!
If you are interested in taking over the development and
maintenance of Auctionator send a private message to Zirco.
Preference will be given to a developer with an established track record.



Auctionator makes the auction house easier to use, by presenting auction house listings clearly and succinctly, and by eliminating the tedium involved in posting and managing auctions.

Auctionator is designed for casual everyday auction house users.

To find out more about Auctionator head over to auctionatoraddon.com or, better yet, just download it and try it out!

If you're already a user and have a question, you might find the answer in the Auctionator FAQ.

If you find a bug, you can report it in the comments below. Remember, when reporting bugs, the more detail you provide, the more likely I am to actually look into your bug report.

    ok got to say for selling auctionator is the best except for right now when i try selling anything in the sell tab it will only list 1 to 2 of the stacks and then pops me over to the auctions page and with any auction i post it pops me over to the auctions tab very annoying let me know if you know of a fix or why it would do this
  • #1330
    I can't reproduce this. Is it happening every time?
  • #1320
    First off, love this addon. Is there anyway to add a percentage to what the historical median price is? Makes it nice to be able to see if items are being sold WAY above the norm or WAY below the norm.
  • #1332
    Auctionator doesn't track enough information to calculate historical median prices. Doing so would require saving a LOT more information. But more importantly I try to avoid any kind of statistical analysis of the auction house. It's complicated and there is no one result that everyone would agree is THE number that best represents the "right" price for an item.
  • #1319
    I tried Auctionator recently and I like how lightly it runs, using very little memory.

    The only issue I found is that I play on multiple realms sometimes, and it appeared the information saved in the add-on was the information it had gathered no matter what realm I was on. (When starting a new character on a new realm I had never been on before, it was displaying sales information even though I hadn't even been to an AH yet.

    Would it be possible to change this so it only saves information by the realm you're on? Or perhaps make this an option somehow? I don't know if that would make it use more memory or not. But in my experience the prices on the AH can vary wildly from one server to another. (For example I personally saw a stack of linen cloth being sold for well over 10g on one server, when it was only a few silver the same day on another server.)
  • #1328
    The scan information IS kept separate by realm and faction, but the history of your postings is not. Someday I'll probably fix this but I think the scan information is more important to be kept separate.
  • #1317
    How about hot key on "back button"?
    It's great update!!!
  • #1331
    Thanks for the suggestion. Not sure if it's worth the added complexity but I'll give it some thought.
  • #1312
    Is it possible to show names of other sellers?
  • #1315

    This has been a fairly common request so it's something I'd like to add someday. It'd have to be an option though as it would making scanning take longer.
  • #1311
    Using the addon 'fubar addonspam', it seems auctionator is sending a lot of background messages all the time it's running - even when I'm not in the auction house. Just out of interest, what is all this data?
  • #1316

    Shouldn't be "a lot" of messaging. Whenever a guildee who uses Auctionator logs on, he'll broadcast a message to other guildees asking for the latest version of Auctionator so that Auctionator can tell you when you're not running the latest version.
  • #1309
    Since versions 2.4.9 there is problem when using the sell function (tab), and also the look for undercut tab.

    After I use the ‘sell’ tab and place an action, the tab switch direct back to the tab ‘auctions’
    Normally the tab stay on the ‘sell’ field and I was able to place my next action, without every time tab back to the sell tab on every auction I placed.
    This switching of tabs - after u place an auction - is so fast that for example when I choose for 4 stacks of 5, he only can do one stack because after he is done with the first he already is on the auctions tab and he is not able to making the other 3 stacks.

    Same if I use the undercut procedure, he checks my list and after that i choose which auction I want to cancel. Every time I cancel one auction he switch to the auctions tab and I have to tab back to the 'check for undercuts'
    This results that after a view times switching back that I have to do the undercut procedure again, because the results are gone.

    Greetings Ray
