Abstract: Internet marketing is a field that is continuing to grow, and the online auction concept may be defining a totally new and unique distribution alternative. Very few studies have examined auction sellers and their internet marketing strategies. This research examines the internet auction phenomenon as it relates to the marketing mix of online auction sellers.

These two approaches are further distinguished in terms of the internet usage strategies employed by each group.
