BiG DEAL : BiG Auction Model #6 : English Auction

The English Auction is like the auction standard and most prevalent auction type. The seller starts with a reserve price and everyone is supposed to bid above this. All bidders can see the price offered by other bidders. The highest price bidder wins. Please note that the reserve price is also called the ‘bid floor’ price.

A slight variation of the English Auction is the sealed bid English Auction, like the standard English Auction but where the bid prices are sealed. The seller has a minimum reserve price which is announced. All bidders submit their best price offering in a sealed envelope. The highest bidder wins.
