NexAuctions How It Works

  • Dutch Auctions – During a Dutch Auction the item price is lowered until a bid is received. If the Reserve Price has been met the first bid received is considered the winning bid and automatically results in a sale. This is different to most auction types, where the item price increases as bidders’ compete.
  • Japanese Auctions – Bidders’ must accept the opening price, defined by the Buyer. If they don’t they can’t participate in the auction. By accepting the opening price the Bidder is agreeing to supply the goods or services for the price defined by the Buyer. As Bidders’ agree to prices, NexAuctions reduces the bid price at pre-defined intervals and prompts Bidders’ to reject or agree to the new price. This continues until there is only one Bidder remaining.
  • Multi-lot Auctions – During a Multi-lot Auction the Supplier will list multiple identical items, or lots, to multiple Buyers. Winners’ are determined by sorting all the bids from highest to lowest. The winners’ then pay the lowest amount they bid over the Reserve price. Bidders’ are entitled to refuse lots if they aren’t given the quantities they requested. Bidders’ with higher bids are given priority when allocating lots. If there are more sucessful Bidders’ than lots the Bidders’ who submitted first will be awarded the items.
  • Forward Auctions - Forward auctions allow you to create your own marketplace for your goods to increase sales, get you the best price and ensure you can dictate the best price for your goods. Bidders’ compete in real-time until the auction is complete, guaranteeing good value for the Supplier. The item is awarded to the highest Bidder.
  • Reverse Auctions – Buyers’ list requests for goods or services. Suppliers’ then place bids that reflect the amount they are willing to be paid for providing the goods or services. Once the auction is complete the Supplier with the lowest bid wins.
