Reputation in Auctions: Theory, and Evidence from eBay

Daniel Houser () and John Wooders ()

Journal of Economics & Management Strategy, 2006, vol. 15, issue 2, pages 353-369

Abstract: "Employing a procedure suggested by a simple theoretical model of auctions in which bidders and sellers have observable and heterogenous reputations for default, we examine the effect of reputation on price in a data set drawn from the online auction site eBay. Our main empirical result is that seller's, but not bidder's, reputation has an economically and statistically significant effect on price."
