An Examination of Seller Pricing Options at Online Auctions This paper developes a theoretical model for understanding how the ultimate bidding volume and price of an item are affected by the seller choosing to use an option called reserve pricing in comparison to the traditional option where a reserve price is not used. pdf-file  
An Integrated Model for Who, When, and How Much in Internet Auctions We develop an integrated (yet parsimonious) model for bidding behavior in Internet auctions in order to explore features of online bidding and selling behavior. To this end, we incorporate three key components in building a model of bidding behavior in Internet auctions: who has bid, when they have bid, and how much they have bid. pdf-file 2003  
Auctioning Off The Future Of Shopping Our consumer economy is being transformed, says online exchange founder Daniel Nissanoff. From an "accumulation nation" of consumers clinging to our possessions until the end of their useful life or beyond, we're becoming an "auction culture," where one constantly trades up to newer, better products, or just resells them on the open market when utility wanes. January 2006  
Best Practices in eSourcing: Multi-Attribute eSourcing Supports Buying and Selling the Best Value There has been a heated debate about the value of reverse auctions. Buyers are starting to realize they are a means to lower costs while improving procurement productivity, especially for more standardized/commodized goods and services. Pdf-file 286 KB. 2003  
Building an Exchange Machine Creating your own e-market is not an out-of-the-box experience; article by  Amy Helen Johnson, October 2000  
Consumer Surplus in Online Auctions Despite the growing research interest in Internet auctions, particularly those on eBay, little is known about the quantifiable consumer welfare accrued from such mechanisms. Using an ongoing novel field experiment, we collect and examine a unique dataset to empirically quantify and understand determinants of consumer surplus in eBay auctions. pdf-file. 2005  
Current and Future Insights From Online Auctions Internet technology can alter business models within organizations. Nowhere is this more evident than in online auctions. In this article, a research framework is presented that describes how the research of online auctions has progressed and what areas still need to be examined in future research. pdf-file. 2004  
Doing Their Bidding: An Empirical Examination of Factors that Affect a Buyer's Utility in Internet Auctions What factors make individual bidders pay more or less for the same item in online auctions? We use data on over 55,000 bids over a three-year period collected by a customized Internet software agent. This data is used to perform a within-bidders quasi-experiment, testing bidders who bid on the exact same item at different times during a 30-day period in online auctions. pdf-file 2003  
E-Marketplaces and Distributors E-marketplaces can still generate enormous value for the small distributor, who is most likely proceeding with caution with respect to his e-commerce initiatives, especially since smaller distributors lack the manpower to develop, standardize and update content required for e-commerce. October 2002  
eMarkets: Fixing What Is Broken Discusses some problems of eMarkets and how to solve them (Nov 2000)  
Emotional Bidders An Analytical and Experimental Examination of Consumers' Behavior in Reverse Auction. Pdf-file  
Follow the Leader: Price Change Timing and Strategic Pricing in E-Commerce Conventional wisdom and current research predict that intense price competition will occur in online markets. However, this does not seem to be happening. Internet technologies can lessen information asymmetry among Internet sellers, allowing rapid reaction among competitors, thus allowing tacitly collusive strategies as price changes are more easily detectable by competitors. pdf-file 2003  
Open to the Public Does the prospect of falling years behind your competitors in e-commerce scare you? It should. It's why industry powerhouses are coming together to build public marketplaces. Working with your enemies to build a public marketplace might just save your business.   
The Effect of Reputation on Selling Prices in Auctions  In this contribution we argue that a positive reputation of sellers should have an effect on selling prices. Analyzing auctions of popular DVDs at eBay we, indeed, find support for this hypothesis. Secondary, we unmask the myth that it is promising for eBay sellers to let their auction end at the evening, when many potential buyers may be online. pdf-file 2006  
What's in an Online Marketplace? Web-based trading exchanges are the e-hot e-spots for buyers and sellers to meet and conduct business, from simple catalog presentations to, in the future, fully integrated back-office transactions. Here's what those exchanges are going to look like. (April 2001)
