What are forward auctions?

Forward auctions are, essentially, eAuctions in which bidding starts with the lowest possible price and the bid value increases gradually. Such auctions usually feature a single supplier offering goods or services and buyers competing against each other by submitting higher bids. The highest bid wins.
