This paper investigates the effect of resale allowance on entry strategies in a second price auction with two bidders whose entries are sequential and costly. We first characterize the perfect Bayesian equilibrium in cutoff strategies. We then show that there exists a unique threshold such that if the reseller's bargaining power is greater (less) than the(More)
We examine the impacts of resale opportunity on entry and bidding strategies in simultaneous bidding process (auction mechanism) and sequential bidding process (sequential mechanism) with costly entry, and relative performance between the two mechanisms. Resale opportunity reinforces the partial-pooling equilibrium that a bidder submits a jump bid (even(More)
