    FAQ

    How do online auction websites work?

    Just like at offline auctions, there are sellers, bidders, winners, and losers. Before using such websites, visitors should sign up. Bidding is often time-limited and closes at its expiration. In most cases, it is free to bid, that is, only if a bidder wins, the provider will contact the winner for payment arrangements. Still, some types of auctions require paying beforehand.

    What are the advantages of auctions over stores?

    There are multiple types of auctions where you can hold sales. In this regard, online auctions are more flexible. You do not need to constantly monitor the flow. You simply check the maximum bid in the end. Online auctions have redefined shopping sales and become a better way to reach clients.

    Are online auctions allowed in my country?

    Each country has its legislation concerning this aspect. To get comprehensive information on this matter, you can contact the Merkeleon team, and our legal experts will surely guide you on your country’s jurisdiction in virtual biddings.

    What software is better for a launch: developed from scratch or ready-made?

    It plays no role as far as the quality is preserved. Yet still, newly-made software usually requires more launch time because certain adjustments should be made and some bugs fixed. The Merkeleon product for a reverse auction comprises 10 years of experience; it is easily modifiable, thus resulting in time and money savings.

    Why does a reverse auction exist?

    This model is convenient and efficient in the electronic trading of those assets whose market price is undetermined. Besides, it is also suitable for selling low-demand products.

    How does a price break occur?

    At first, an owner sets a price and number of reduction stages. Then, the start date is announced when buyers can bid. Eventually, biddings and price cuts take place, after which a winner is identified.

    What is a reverse auction applicable for?

    In this auction, the price declines so its purpose is reversed compared to more traditional auctions: to obtain more goods at the lowest price. The reverse auction process is dynamic; suppliers compete for a contract, offering alternatives and competing with one another. A reverse auction is a top-notch method for sourcing goods and services.
