Reverse Auction

What is a Reverse Auction?

A reverse auction is a method of procurement in which the roles of the buyer and seller are reversed. In a forward auction, buyers compete to acquire a good or service by offering higher bids.  In a reverse auction, sellers compete to supply a good or service by offering lower bids.


eBridge facilitates an online, real-time dynamic auction that enhances competition from a group of qualified suppliers.  This competitive purchasing process finds the true market value and provides the best value to the buyer for goods or services.
