Work in Progress
The popularity of auctions handled through eBay’s website demonstrates the marketing power of the Internet. This study examines the influences of price, quality, reputation, and country-of-origin effects on buyers’ repeat purchase decisions of jade products listed on eBay. Lower price, although promotes higher volume of bidding, tends to have negative impacts on quality perception. Repeat purchases and reputation differs significantly depending on the country of origin.
