Looking for guidance on building an auction site.

Hey all, to preface, I have some experience and am pretty good at figuring it out as I go, but I am no expert.

A client of mine is wanting to setup an auction website. The site will need to work alongside a live streamed, in person auction. The items would be listed one after the other on a live stream and the bidding window would be between 3-5 minutes. My issue is figuring out how to integrate the online auction with the in person auction.

Ideally, we would like for the items to be listed on the website with detailed descriptions, but only allow bidding during and directly from the livestream. However, I am open to any suggestions.

I have been looking around at some auction plugins and they all appear to be online based similar to Ebay, Etsy, etc. Do you all think that something like [Ultimate Auction](https://wordpress.org/plugins/ultimate-auction/) or [WPAuctions](https://wpauctions.com/features/) would be able to be customized to allow something like this? I am hesitant to buy a plugin and spend a lot of time on it if it’s not capable of doing the things we need to do.

Do you all think this might be possible with WP, or am I biting off more than I can chew? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!
