Bidder

A potential buyer. The term may apply regardless of what the bidder is seeking to buy. To give only a few examples, bidders seek to buy houses, stocks, bonds, and whole companies. A bidder may be an individual or a corporation. Generally speaking, a seller finds the bidder who offers the best deal and executes the sale with him or her.
