The search box is a powerful way to look up bidder statistics, items, penny auction sites, and auctions.
Search for just the username (without site) and see all the sites that username has been seen on.
Looking for a specific auction? Try searching for an "auction ID" For example, "5432" if the URL of the auction is www.example.com/auction.php?auction=5432.
Find common items by searching for Amazon ASIN or UPC.
2012-11-08 - A couple new features were added to the user report page. Logged in users are now able to set a custom bid price for each site, which will affect user reports they view for that site. Results charts now show a running "Promo Bids" balance, which estimates bids won in auctions that have not yet been used. Problems? Questions? Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through our forums.
2012-06-28 - New "My Sites" feature: If AllPennyAuctions shows an unknown or incorrect "bids placed" for an auction you bid on, you can now enter the actual (corrected) number of bids you had placed in the auction. If the auction was previously an "unknown" bid count, adding a corrected bid count will include it in "Net" stats. See the "My Sites" page for more info.
2012-06-25 - We have added some new reporting options to item details pages, mostly covering end price statistics. You can now view charts of average end prices by hour, day of week, week, or month. You can also include groups of similar items in these statistics, such as "All Gift Cards with values from $20.01-$25.00". Comments, questions? See the official forum topic.
2012-05-01 - In May we are focusing on tracking new sites and upgrading sites to "Live Tracking". Have a penny auction website that you want to see listed on AllPennyAuctions? Let us know at email@example.com, or through our forums.
2012-04-09 - We're happy to announce that AllPennyAuctions.com "Unlimited Subscription" pricing has been lowered to $30.00 / month or $300/year!
2012-01-14 - AllPennyAuctions.com is one year old today!
2011-11-06 - "Penny Wise" is an impressive new book covering a wide range of topics on the penny auction industry. From the history of penny auctions, to the business model, to strategies bidders can use to win more. It's very likely the most complete reference on the penny auction world that exists today. Highly recommended read to anyone that visits this site (from bidder to site owner).
2011-10-19 - Just1Penny is recording videos using AllPennyAuctions. Today I fixed several bugs I saw in the videos. The autocomplete in the seach box works again. HUD windows won't pop up on the APA website anymore. The bid-bob banner overlapping the login window is fixed. The pennypanda page not showing the normal info is fixed.
2011-08-22 - My Wins is a new feature that allows you to easily keep track of the receipt of penny auction wins, from payment to delivery. It will eventually allow for cool reports like "How fast does each site ship?". More information and screenshots on the forum.
2011-08-19 - Did someone steal your username on a penny auction site and is now reaping the benefits of your hard work? You can now mark them as Imposters! Read More...
2011-08-14 - The Firefox version of PennyHUD, v0.3 is now available. This version is a major overhaul of the code. It's less feature-rich, but performance should be substantially improved. The main difference the end user will see is all chart graphics were removed.
2011-08-06 - Progressive (AKA Scaled, Expander, Multiplier) auctions should now be accounted for correctly (they were previously ignored in most reports). Profile pages now have site and category summary tabs.
2011-07-07 - The item details page (the pages linked to from searching for item names) has been reworked and will now show more detailed information on the item in addition to a list of recently completed auctions.
2011-07-03 - New features added today: (1) "My Sites" users now have the ability to tag auctions in which they used "Buy it Now". See the "My Sites" page for more info on this. (2) Site-specific user pages will now show live auctions the bidder has recently been bidding on. (3) Auction details pages for common retail items will now include best available pricing for the same item from 3 different sources (Amazon, BestBuy, and Shopzilla).
2011-07-02 - New features added today: (1) When viewing a user's bid history there is a new "Compare to Bidder" link which allows for comparing bid histories of two users side by side. (2) There is also a new page under "Help" for submitting missing auctions to us. (3) We're now taking (and archiving) daily screenshots of penny auction sites homepages - thumbnails have been added to the site details pages.
2011-07-01 - Wow, it's been a while since the last update! Today we released two new features in tandem - site reviews (which you can find on individual penny auction site pages), and the "Site Owner Control Panel" - a set of tools and resources for penny auction site operators.
2011-06-02 - We have a new system called "My Sites" which customizes your AllPennyAuctions.com experience using your site preferences. It does a few cool things already, but we have much more planned, and we need some guinea pigs.. err.. beta testers!
2011-05-28 - By request, the new Hall of Fame - Epic Battles features historical (and live) penny auctions with crazy amounts of bidding.
2011-05-21 - Time for another random report. Today we took the 2,829 usernames that have been seen on 5 or more sites, and looked at which penny auction sites are most popular among those users. Where the "Prolific" are.
2011-05-15 - Oh snap, PennyHUD 1.0 is out! New in this version is the "Auction Toolbar" feature - customizable AllPennyAuctions auction statistics right inside the actual auction.
2011-05-11 - Some nice new features were added in PennyHUD v0.9 today.
2011-05-10 - You can now add AllPennyAuctions.com as a custom search engine in your browser. Quickly look up bidders, items and sites right from your search bar! Just click the little down arrow next to your search box and select "Add".
2011-05-05 - The database maintenance taking place for the last 12 hours or so is now complete. For the geeks out there, we were rebuilding our MySQL bid history table (by far the largest table we have, with about 170m rows). It was previously BIGINT/BIGINT/DATETIME/DECIMAL and is now INT/INT/TIMESTAMP/DECIMAL. Along with some index improvements, it resulted in a 65% savings on space and should help with performance too.
2011-05-03 - The auction page has received a makeover. Now includes all kinds of statistics, information, and charts. Also live auctions are kept up to date in real time.
2011-04-20 - Took a small break from adding sites to optimize the Hall of Fame and Auction pages - both were loading super slow. Also fixed the live auction list (now updates faster, and supports currencies).
2011-04-18 - Have been working furiously at adding new sites and improving accuracy. This is the #1 project for the next couple months until we're as close to living up to the name "All Penny Auctions" as humanly/robotically possible.
