To create the listing for the selected product, the user preferably specifies the product’s condition and a selling price. The pending listings for a product are preferably displayed or summarized on the product’s detail page in the catalog. When no such listings exist, an option to preorder the product from an unspecified seller may be provided. In one embodiment, the electronic catalog also serves as a retail sales catalog of a merchant. Link: U.S. Patent 7472077
