BID4 is real-time bidding e-market place where customers can bid or use the buy-now functionality to purchase products and services. One of the key features of BID4 is the fact that only 10 people can bid per similar item, keeping competition high within a small group of enthusiastic buyers and giving the buyers the confidence and equal opportunity of actually winning a bid. We will also have an implementation of a compare API, which tells our customers how much our competition are selling similar items helping them make a buying decision without visiting multiple platforms.

- Customers lack confidence if actually winning a bid due to the high volume of people bidding per similar item.
Solution (product or service)
