Abstract

A customer profit sharing conditional purchase offer (CPO) management system is disclosed for processing CPOs received from one or more buyers for a product. The system processes each received CPO to determine whether one or more sellers are willing to accept a given CPO. The customer profit sharing CPO management system is operated to share the profit that is earned from a given conditional purchase offer with the buyer by returning a portion of the profit to the buyer in the form a buyer discount. The buyer discount can be, for example, in the form of (i) a monetary discount to the current transaction, (ii) a rebate, or (iii) a coupon or credit that may be redeemed for a discount against future transactions.
