    We got the site at around 4:00 and promptly we were dictated what we had to do. We were told that we would perform the duty of ‘runners’ and proceed to issue the bidders’ items to them while keeping them from taking their own items. This was merely to make the paperwork easier to address on the side of the organization, and to prevent any thefts, which was evidently an issue last year. The auction did not take place until much later in the day, around 7:00, but until then, we were given miscellaneous odd jobs, including a little physical labor. Up until the actual, verbal auction, people who

E-bay made many mistakes just by looking at the four Ps (product, place, promotion, and pricing). It didn’t do enough of a cultural background check on its consumers as far as what makes them spend or what they expect for their money.

    E-Bay, the online auction giant is losing ground in Asia. Back in 1995 few thought that E-Bay would have grown up to be the behemoth of internet trading that it has. It did incredibly well in the U.S. for a decade and once it started talking about taking up roots in Asia, most felt that this would be the proverbial, “nail in the coffin,” for any company that had aspirations of becoming a contender in the internet auction battle on a global scale. Amazingly, most were wrong and “Goliath” is being brought down in Asia by several “David’s” who sat back, watched and learned from the pioneer. E-Ba

    Online Auctions Online auctions are “networked communities of buyers and sellers who exchange product information, coordinate and transact” (Pavlou & Gefen, 2002, cited in Meents, Yao & Verhagen, 2004). Most of the time, online auctions are available to most people in the world with the access to the Internet.

    Why is urban Asia growing richer? Mostly, because Asian governments have moved away from the older state economic controls. They have freed up their economies. China is the obvious example.

That system killed at least 60 million people.
