The current study presents emerging evidence of the heterogeneities of dispersion in price and number of bidders and the combination of factors that predict auction success across electronic auction (e-auction) markets in various countries. We argue that heterogeneities in e-auction markets exist and understanding them can benefit market participants. A spider program was developed to collect live auction data of commodity transactions from e-auction markets in three different countries: Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Our results confirm heterogeneities across these markets. We also found that each e-auction market has a different set of success factors. The article concludes with recommendations to participating members of auctions.
