Online flea market system for safe and efficient individual transactions

 Fujita Satoshi 

Research Summary

Most existing online flea markets are based on so-called B2C (business to consumer) systems where individuals carry out business transactions via intermediaries such as enterprises.
Our laboratory conducts research on a new online flea market system based on a Consumer-to-Consumer model geared towards direct and safe business transactions on an individual basis.
The system we propose under this theme is based on a new search mechanism, which efficiently searches for products via a network that correspond to the attribute value set that a user has requested. By implementing this system on a network and registering items at one's own store (one's own personal computer connected to the network), users can safely receive business proposals from other users who really want these items.
