Abstract

A system (Figure 6A) includes an auction price-setting process and a fixed price process for purchasing a seller's offering to a buyer. The system is provided with a mechanism to adjust (618), publish and activate (620) a seller fixed-price offer (605) during the auction price-setting process. Furthermore, the system provides a mechanism that would allow a buyer to submit a question to a seller, and optionally have the seller post the relevant question as well as a response for inclusion within a listing.
