  The popular Internet marketplace, eBay, implements the Name-Your-Own-Price mechanism by offering the “Best Offer” format. This study focuses on a buyer''''s behavior under such a mechanism. We characterize this mechanism as a sequential game between the seller of an item and its buyers. Our model suggests that a rational buyer’s offer price increases in the number of buyers who have made an offer on the item beforehand and the Buy-It-Now price chosen by the seller. On the other hand, the offer price decreases when the item has been listed on eBay for a longer period of time. We empirically test our theoretical predictions by using sales of Toyota Camry cars on eBay. The empirical evidence is consistent with our model.
