They aim to enhance the visibility of a sellers' goods to interested buyers, while making sure that these items are available and affordable. An auction is an event where buyers place bids on assets and goods. Online auctioning, also known as E-auction, is the conventional auction conducted over the internet. However, the concept of E-auction is not understood by the majority of the Nigerian populace. This is because of the slow progress of economic development in the country, which implies that it still has a long way to go in the country.
Many businesses have begun to invest in the online market's opportunities since the advent of the internet. Goods from different sellers are displayed online for interested buyers to get. This enterprise's benefit is that interested buyers from anywhere in the world can buy these displayed goods at reasonable rates. The auction, a complex form of shopping, has also been translated from its traditional form to incorporate the online market's intricacies fully. This transition birthed what is now called online auctioning or E-auctioning.
Online auctioning can revolutionise the online business market in Nigeria though it is a late entrant. It is to fulfill this need that EesAuction was born. It is a company that seeks to address the gap between public sales and the purchasing character of interested buyers. Its services cut across concepts of e-Commerce, e-Auction, and e-Empowerment. The operations on the EesAuction platform are similar to the standard processes involved in auctioning.

With EesAuction, bidding is time-based, which implies that bidding will commence at a set time, and the timer will countdown to zero. It is important to note that the item to be sold is displayed online days before the bidding is set to begin. This period is known as the previewing period that allows interested buyers to get acquainted with the item they want to purchase. To start to bid on the EesAuction platform, buyers will have to follow some steps to make them eligible for bidding.
First, a buyer must register and sign-up on the platform, creating a profile on their page. An e-wallet will be provided that the buyer has to fund with #1000 to be an eligible bidder. When the item of interest has been marked, the buyer has to click on the bid button to commence bidding. The last valid bidder with the highest bid is declared the winner of the auction.
