The study aims to determine consumers' shopping habits with online auction services, specify the problems experienced in service quality, and create an innovative and time-saving service suitable for consumers by choosing their wishes and needs.

According to aspect and Anova tests of consumers on consumer behaviour; it is revealed that "Trust" with P: 0.047 < 0.05 shows a significant difference depending on income, and "purchasing process" with P: 0.013 < 0.05 has a considerable difference depending on age, "competition" with P:0.032 <0.05 has a significant difference depending on gender, "budget" with P: 0.046 < 0.05 has a considerable difference depending on income and education (F: 3.422 -P: 0.031 <0.05).
