as you can see in the title, I am not sure about the name of what we are looking for. In Germany we call it “Liveshopping”.
It’s a businessmodel where an onlineshop offers one product with limited quantity for one day for a very low price.
This way, the customer is encouraged to buy immediately, because the very special deal is available only now.
The module mainly should feature a frontend widget and a backend configuration interface.
The fronted should show the product, the time left this product is still available and the remaining amount in stock.
We are planning to develop this feature as a magento module.
Maybe you have in mind some further detailed features that you would like to see included and that you can tell us here ?
DAILY DEAL FEATURES:
- Fully customizable flash countdown
- Countdown is based on your store Locale settings, displaying the same time to all your customers.
- Schedule/Queue/Edit/Delete Daily deals
- View the number of views and sales the deal had while on display
- Possibility to make products disable after deal ends or product’s quantity reaches 0
- Display on homepage or other cms or store pages
- Display in left/right sidebar
- Ability to show the remaining qty of the product/deal
- Choose whether you want to be notified when a deal isn’t scheduled for the day
- On download, aside from the extension files, the package also contains the countdown fla file

You can also have a look at two more extensions which are perfect for promotions in any Magento store.
Promo Banners module allows to display promotional banners on category, product pages, cart activating impulse purchases at your store. The deals shown are relevant to the products people view which increases the effect.
