Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0049546A2] A system and method for allocating conditional purchase offers (CPO's) among a plurality of agency-based and broadcast-based sellers in a buyer-driven commerce system. In one embodiment, the system determines which agency-based or broadcast-based sellers can fulfill or satisfy the CPO and orders those sellers in a priority order (703). In another embodiment, the priority is determined by relative market share and number of recent opportunities to satisfy a CPO. In another embodiment, priority is also determined by metrics and buyer information. In another embodiment, the priority is determined randomly. The system ensures that when a buyer can satisfy the CPO at multiple prices levels, the highest price level fulfills the CPO. This ensures maximum seller revenue for each CPO.
