2017 Responsive Software Optional Upgrade:
Existing Maxanet clients now have the option of upgrading their account to our new 2017 Responsive software and bidding pages. This new update has streamlined the auction calendar, details, and bidding pages to a mobile-friendly layout that dynamically changes the page layout depending on the screen size.
Take a look at our Sample Auctions Demo Page to view a working example of how the inventory and photos appears on a mobile device such as a smartphone.
This Responsive upgrade is very flexible...you can continue to use your own custom calendar or step into an event/details page via a link and not use the calendar at all. If you want to upgrade to Responsive you must currently host with Maxanet...if you are not currently hosting with Maxanet please contact us to setup a new hosting account with us.
The cost of upgrading to Responsive is a minimum $100 charge. Some websites and layouts may need additional HTML & CSS coding work and will cost more to upgrade. We are working with clients on a case-by-case basis so please contact us today with any questions or to get started.
SSL Secure Website Optional Upgrade:
All Maxanet administrative pages and sensitive bidder data have always been and always will be encrypted & SSL secure.
However, recent browser updates for Google Chrome & Mozilla Firefox have left many Maxanet clients seeing "Not Secure" warning messages in the URL address bar of their website & the public facing auction pages.
To make your website secure, we will need to configure and install an SSL certificate for your domain name on our server. The cost for the SSL certificate is $200/year (setup/install included).
Adding an SSL certificate will not only make your site secure (with a green lock icon in the URL) but it will also give you full branding across all pages - including the Bidder Registration & Profile Update pages.
You can request additional workspaces for your Maxanet account at any time by emailing us through our Contact Page.
Add Affiliate/Partner Sub-Accounts
Maxanet gives clients the ability to add "sub-accounts" to your main Maxanet account for your affiliate sellers or franchises. Sub accounts get their own Maxanet administrative panel with their own password with access to only their auctions. We will add a new "Combined Calendar" feature to your main account which allows you to add your sub-accounts workspaces to your main Calendar page when they have a new auction that's ready to go live. Sub-accounts share your bidder list, but have no access to download any sensitive data. The billing is handled through the main account. Sub-accounts are setup the same way as regular Maxanet accounts and there is a one-time $100 setup fee per sub-account and a monthly fee dependant on the # of workspaces and if the sub-account is sharing the same main account URL, or has it's own unique URL/website address.
Website Design / Development:
Maxanet provides all new clients with their choice of one of three web templates. You can build upon these templates yourself, hire an outside web designer, or hire Maxanet to create additional pages and/or features for your website, including an advanced design/template. Our rates start at $50/hr and we've found our prices tend to be less than an outside developer who would need to learn the Maxanet system in addition to building you a website around your auction pages.
