Buyers and sellers participating in online auctions can experience difficulty communicating about the color of items for sale. Photographs can be misleading and words that sellers use to describe items such as yellow, green, blue, purple, violet, pink, red, orange, and brown are not specific enough as there are many shades and hues of these colors.
Adding to the potential for misunderstandings, different computer monitors depict colors differently. When a seller says an item is lighter than shown in the picture, in reality, the item could be darker than shown on the buyer's computer monitor.
For inexpensive and easy to return merchandise, miscommunication about color may pose a minor inconvenience. For expensive, difficult to ship, or non-returnable items, miscommunication about color can be a major problem. This is why the Online Auction Color Chart was created.
The Online Auction Color Chart is a tool that can be used by buyers and sellers to communicate more effectively about the color of items for sale.
The Online Auction Color Chart has over 900 color samples, each of which is assigned a unique color label. The "OAC" is professionally printed on sturdy card stock and is coated with a semi-gloss finish to resist wear. The OAC is 12 pages.
When a buyer and seller each have an Online Auction Color Chart as a common point of reference, they can communicate about color in very specific terms.
