This auction type involves one seller and multiple potential buyers, where the seller sets a minimum acceptable bid and entertains bids that are incrementally higher than that minimum. The forward auction is extremely beneficial for maximizing returns on sale, reducing inventory stocks, and promotes proper optimization of stock assets.
Bidders submit bids for item(s) being offered at auction and other bidders can view these bids in bid history. In this auction type, there can be no ties. Each bid that a bidder submits must be higher or lower than his last bid, based upon the auction format (Forward or Reverse Auction). The order is awarded to the highest (Forward Auction Type) or the lowest (Reverse Auction Type) bidder.
This auction type is similar to the Dutch Auction type except instead of a single-line item, it's now a whole lot that is put up for bidding. Each bidder specifies their respective highest bid that they're willing to pay for the whole lot. The one with the highest bid wins the entire lot.
A typical Dutch Auction initiates with the lowest possible price, complemented by gradual increases at regular intervals. The auction ends as and when a supplier accepts the price in each interval. Here, the prices are governed by the buyer organization and bidders must acknowledge the price. This auction type is highly useful as it can be completed very quickly, easy to implement and understand.
