Auction Netiquette A Culture of Bidding and Selling

Auction Netiquette

Auction Netiquette is the culture of communities that sell to the highest bidder. Auctions are the sale of items online to the highest bidder within a set time period.

The format has proved useful for social capitalists, governments, and businesses. Social recommendations drive sales.

Governments have been able to sell surpluses. Businesses use it as another method to sell their products. There are popular auction websites.


Auction netiquette rules are the customs of bidding and selling. A whole new set of norms and common practices apply that do not apply to traditional auctions.

The rules that come from the common practices are cultural. Feedback is central to these customs.

Seller feedback is important because websites cannot guarantee the authenticity of items. A sellers reputation makes a sale more than anything else.

Brokers may be employed for high price items. Buyer feedback works in a similar way. There are tips, customs, and guidelines that make up the culture.

Tips on bidding can help buyers get a better deal. Customs make for smooth transactions. Guidelines keep buyers and sellers from making a bad deal.

Online auctions are a form of sale to the highest bidder. Buyer and seller must register with the domain. Fees are incurred for selling items.

Registration is required to purchase them. A valid method of payment for seller fees and buying items is taken when accounts are set up.

The time period of sales is incremental. It varies from site to site. Most measure increments in days. One, three, and seven day auctions are standard.

Pictures and descriptions are included in the sales page. Buyers and sellers have feedback scores. Comments are aloud after transactions from participants.
