Improving Online Bidding System for Spanish Vintage Stamps Collection Shop – Colectalia

Visit Website

Colectalia is an exclusive shop which specializes in Spanish civil war local stamps, political labels, and postal history. Besides having a physical shop, they sell and auction their vintage stamps collection online.


Carles Prats is the chairman of Colectalia, he was looking for an online bidding system for his business. Using PrestaShop platform, he made the Colectalia e-commerce site.  PrestaShop is a freemium, open source e-commerce solution, but don’t offer auction selling functionality out-of-the-box.

While searching for an auction extension for PrestaShop, Carles came across Webkul’s Product Auction for PrestaShop. This allows merchants to sell products via. online bidding system supporting:

  • Standard auction
  • Incremental auction
  • Automatic auction
  • Buy it now

Following that, we asked some series of questions to Carles about his success story journey and how Webkul helped him along the way. Please view the interview questions & answers below:

What is your company’s mission?

Colectalia is an online stamp store and auction house, specialized in Spanish civil war (1936-1939) local stamps and postal history.


What was your challenge?

We needed to improve the bidding system in our website, which runs with a thirtybees (a Prestashop 1.6 fork) install that was migrated from Prestashop 1.6.23.

How did you overcome your challenges?

Webkul’s auction extension for Prestashop 1.6 has been the module that has helped us in our goal. Now we have the exact bidding system we needed.

How was the result?

Webkul’s auction extension, despite being designed for Prestashop, also works on any thirtybees install. Requested customizations of the module matched the exact requirements we needed to adapt this function to our customers and to our stamp business.


How would you review Webkul on its products and services?

I would definitely recommend Webkul’s extensions and customization services to anyone on e-commerce. This company is a problem free solution: fast reply, excellent coders and great customer service.

It has been a pleasure working with them, and it will not be the last time. We have some projects to improve several other functions in our website, and this top experience with Webkul has made it clear who will have our confidence to apply them.

Would you like to share anything else?

Special thanks to Prerna Arora’s professionalism, in Prestashop department, for continuous assistance and efforts, who has been a key piece in the process of customization of the module.
