Seller-Driven Auctions

July 11th, 2023

What is a seller driven auction and how can it help your bottom line?


Today’s post is by Ronald D. Southard, CEO at SafeSourcing Inc

At SafeSourcing we run many seller driven auctions. These may come in handy as the supply chain loosens and retailer realize they have way overbought and have backrooms full of dated products. We actually use our Forward Auction Tool from our SafeSourceIt™eProcurement Platform. This is also a great way to reduce SHRINK which I have written about in the past

A seller-drive auction is an auction where sellers post goods for sale and buyers will bid on them. A good example of a seller-driven auction would be eBay©. A seller would place a particular item that they want to sell online, and buyers wanting to purchase that item will place bids trying to ultimately win the auction for the product (s).

SafeSourcing is an eprocurement company that operates across multiple industries. As such we have specific experience in almost any commodity, service or capital related spend. Our SafeSourceIt™ Global Supplier Database has over 500,000 suppliers including companies that often bid on aged inventory. You are probably sitting on quite a bit of inventory right now.
