    Great list Dragos, I personally like SiteMile because it can be used as a marketplace theme. However, I would much rather just use a plugin to convert my one of my current sites into an auction site. The 3 plugins you’ve listed here look great but I would rather download one for free. Do you know of any free auction plugins?
