Online auctions are becoming an increasingly important channel for electronic commerce. There are a number of online auction sites on the Internet. It is hard for users to attend, monitor, and make bids at simultaneous multiple auctions. In this paper, we implement BiddingBot which is a multiagent system that supports users in attending, monitoring, and bidding in multiple auctions. Further, we propose a new cooperative bidding mechanism among agents. Our current experiment demonstrates that our new cooperative bidding mechanism can effectively support users to monitor, attend, and make bids on multiple simultaneous auctions.
