With Reverse Auction Factory, end-users can post their requests in order to obtain the best price for needed services or desired products.

Here just a couple of examples:

  • Freelancing (developers, programmers, designers.)
  • Constructions (materials, architects, interior design, pools, etc.)
  • Technicians (utilities, locksmiths, plumbers, electricians, etc.)
  • many other branches.
