Online Auctions

Online Auction Companies

This is a category of companies that operate auctions online, where you can place bids for items and buy online, sell online, etc. An early example of a computerised buying and selling system was Zyra's Bazaar which was founded in 1987. Not many people believed such a thing was possible then, so it's had to wait for the world to catch up and for someone else to invent it.

Anyway, here's a list of some companies who operate international buying and selling systems online, each with their own different way of doing things...

The Bid For CompanyThe Bid For Company (af)
The Bid for Company was set up with the vision of offering desirable items for people to bid for and win. However, there's a twist! To prevent all the items going to the people with the deepest pockets, we've implemented a "reverse auction" process - so for the same nominal entry fee, everyone's got an equal chance of owning the items for a tiny fraction of their value! We set the maximum amount of a bid on an item and the person with the LOWEST UNIQUE BID WINS.
