In an auction, people bid on a thing they want to buy. The auction can end after several days or in an hour if the seller agrees to sell the thing at the price the buyer is willing to pay. Auctions are exciting. They can also be a big reason for the worry. For example, a person is in urgent need of money. He decides to sell a thing in exchange for cash. The person lists the product on an app/website but unfortunately, very few people show an interest in the bidding as the app is not very popular. No one knows what will happen when the bidding starts. But to make sure that your product is in front of 1000s of users and is sold fast at a great price, you must use a bidding application.
