[Objective] A multi-dimensionality reputation model, named e-BRM, is proposed to surpass (1, 0, -1) scoring system used in e-Barter (one type of emerging online C2C market). [Methods] Based on Wilson score interval and uniform distribution, e-BRM can calculate positive ratio and positive coverage ratio respectively. Meanwhile, time-delay factor, negative punishing factor and real name authentication factor are designed in e-BRM to be further aggregated as barter's transaction value. [Results] The positive ratio, coverage ratio and transaction value are aggregated as barter's reputation degree by e-BRM. The aggregated value can describe barter's true reputation degree better than that of (1, 0, -1) scoring system. [Limitations] For the application of e-BRM, an online updating mechanism should be designed for improving real-time performance. [Conclusions] Simulation experimental results show the validity of e-BRM, thus barters can make reasonable deal decisions based on reputation degree for decreasing transaction risk.
