PostSubject: Reverse Auctions   Tue Oct 05, 2010 10:24 am

1. Reverse auctions are business-related auctions held among buyers and suppliers. Suppliers will offer bids for their products or services, and the buyer will take the lowest or most attractive offer. There are several fields where reverse auctions are common, one of the primary being contract work such as construction.

The buyer will have a specific project that needs to be completed, and various companies will compete to be chosen for the project, offering and counteroffering with lower prices and advertising their value-adding features. The buyer will then choose which company they want to complete the project.

2. Reverse auctions are also a common method of choosing suppliers, especially by government organizations. Sellers will offer to provide specific items at reduced rates or with certain special bonuses attached, such as free shipping or discounts when ordering extra supplies. The buyer can then accept whatever offer is the most attractive, or reject all offers and hold another auction.

Regular business auction rules generally apply to reverse auctions. The primary difference is that there is one buyer and several sellers instead of the other way around, and prices are driven down instead of driven up. For most reverse auctions, sellers only make one offer, the lowest price they are willing to provide their products or service at. Reverse auctions can either be anonymous, where none of the parties knows who else is bidding (at least formally), or open, where companies can see who else they will be bidding against. This puts a large amount of power in the buyer's hands, since it is up to the buyer to choose which company will participate and ultimately which company will win the auction. Sellers do have some power, though, and may decline to take part in an auction for buyer looking for too low or price, or for a buyer without enough prestige to attract high-level sellers.

Thus far we have added the following categories to list a reverse auction: Modding, Painting, Terrain, Other. If you have a category idea, please contact us with it and we will add it asap.
