Online Penny Auctions work by harnessing the power of individuals all betting for the same item. In a traditional online auction, the bidder pays nothing unless he/she wins that auction. Conversely, in Online Penny Auctions, every bid costs a predetermined amount. For example, an online penny auction might sell bids at $1/bid, and therefore raises money on people betting on items for sale through their website. These auctions are call "Penny Auctions" because each bid raises the final price of that item only $.01. Thus, the winner of said auction can get the item at an incredible discount, where the other bidders lose-out.
