On-line auction companies, like Ebay, can integrate AMExT bid-premium technology
to offer their bidders an new way to earn money using auctions, while also raising
the final auction prices for their sellers. Other companies offering on-line
auctions, like Yahoo and Amazon, can use AMExT bid-premium technology to offer
larger incentives to their users to help increase their market share in the on-line
auction business relative to the leader, Ebay.
On-line retailers, like Amazon or Overstock, can use a Dutch auction with
AMExT bid-premium technology to sell items in a "stock market" style environment
where bidders who do not end up with the sale item can earn cash while their bidding
increases the ultimate price of the sold items.
TV Shopping Channels
Home shopping television programmers can use AMExT bid-premium technologies with
telephone and Internet enabled Dutch auctions to stimulate sales and revenues by
letting their viewers earn money on products they bid on and do not win.
On-Line Advertising Companies
Keyword and banner placement auctions, like Google AdWords, can incorporate AMExT
bid-premium technology to stimulate bidding and offer their customers an opportunity
to earn money on placements they did not win. The other bidders help assure that
the the final price paid is the best price for the seller and a fair price for the
Investment banks can use AMExT bid-premium technology in conjunction with or to
entirely replace their Dutch IPO (like the $1.6 billion Google offering) and
bond auctions to stimulate bidding and ensure that the offering company or
organization receives the best price possible. This could create an opportunity
for bidders to profit on the auctions even when they do not acquire any or all
of the securities they bid on.
Government agencies can use AMExT bid-premium technology to increase revenue
from auctions as complex as the United States Department of the Treasury bond
and the Federal Communications Commission spectrum auctions and from auctions
as simple as the General Services Administration seized property auctions.
