1. A method for auctioning a bidding product associated with sales volume, the method comprising:
a bidding start price determination step in which a bidding product shopping mall server determines a bidding start price of a shopping product in association with the quantity of shopping products selling or sold online or offline;
a bidding information transmission step in which the bidding product shopping mall server transmits bidding product information, a bidding schedule, and the bidding start price to communication terminals of customers entitled to bid for a bidding product, wherein the customers entitled to bid for the bidding product are customers who have purchased a shopping product before online or offline at a shopping mall which auctions the bidding product;
a winner determination step in which the bidding product shopping mall server proceeds with bidding at the bidding start price, as a lowest price, for the customers during a preset bidding period; and
a bidding product selling step in which the bidding product shopping mall server sells the bidding product at the winner's bidding price, wherein
determining the bidding start price of the bidding product in association with the quantity of sold shopping product includes determining the bidding start price by a floating price calculated by a discount rate (%) set by a manager when the bidding product is registered, and wherein the bidding start price is determined by “bidding start price=consumer price of bidding product−floating price×quantity of sold shopping product,” wherein the floating price is calculated by “floating price=consumer price of bidding product/quantity of sold shopping product×discount rate (%)”, wherein
the winner determination step includes a bidding step to receive desired purchase prices not less than the bidding start price from communication terminals of bidders of the bidding during the bidding period and to receive bids; a bid ranking step to calculate bid ranks of the bidders in descending order of desired purchase prices; and a bidding award step to determine a winner in descending order of the winning ranks, and wherein the bidding product selling step includes a bid rank result notification step which transmits lists of bidders and desired purchase prices which have been sorted out in descending order of the desired purchase prices to the bidders' communication terminals; and a bid rank-linked selling step which proceeds to sell the bidding product to the bidders in descending order of desired purchase prices.
