a.k.a. buyer's auction
An online auction in which sellers bid against each other to win a buyer's business. A reverse auction empowers the buyer (in this case, the end-user) to find the best deal. For example, Priceline.com sells airline tickets, hotel rooms, and additional products based on the price the consumer is willing to pay.
