The newest trend is that an individual seller conducts consumer electronics auctions mostly online. A major advantage of online auctions is that they save time and money. Consumer electronics auction sites demand that sellers register, and pay a fee each time they auction an item. In almost all cases, sellers list a reserve price, or the minimum bid they are willing to consider, and also set a time limit for bids. Some sellers also include a full description of the item being auctioned, and a photograph, and are willing to respond to any questions about the item. At this point, the seller establishes contact to discuss payment options, shipping, refunds and follow up service, if available.
These auctions may not proceed smoothly or to the satisfaction of the seller and the bidder. Fraud may be committed by either party, usually involving payment or receipt of items. It is important to research online auction sites and to find one that enjoys a good reputation.
