Market Maker

The phrase ‘market maker’ is commonly applied to intermediaries in reverse auctions who facilitate the meeting of buyer and sellers in an online auction. The market is made when the intermediary persuades the sellers to participate and competitive bids are received. In practice, buyers stimulate market making by making it easy for sellers to compete for their business. See also Auction and Marketing, Reverse.
