Definition Edit

E-commerce Edit

A reverse auction (also called a procurement auction, e-auction, sourcing event, e-sourcing or eRA) is a tool used in industrial business-to-business procurement. It is a type of auction in which the role of the buyer and seller are reversed, with the primary objective to drive purchase prices downward. In an ordinary auction (also known as a "forward auction"), buyers compete to obtain a good or service. In a reverse auction, sellers compete to obtain business.

Telecommunications Edit
