eBay Motors announced the launch of a national subscriptions program for auto dealers, enabling small and mid-size dealerships to reach millions of car shoppers across the nation for a fixed subscription rate. With the subscription program, dealers can leverage a consistent monthly online sales channel through one of the most trafficked online destinations, complete with dedicated account support and in-depth reporting.
“The national subscriptions program builds upon the existing services and support eBay Motors has offered dealers for years,” said Bryan Murphy, head of eBay Motors. “eBay Motors provides dealers with a critical sales channel that enables them to reach a broader base of consumers, and in the variety of ways that they prefer to shop, from online to mobile. This new program allows us to further customize our services for dealers, so they can choose the solution that is best suited for their business needs, providing them with even better access to one of the top online automotive destinations.”
The national subscriptions program includes new tools and services to help dealers sell more efficiently, effectively track sales information, and more. Services include advanced seller tools, detailed reporting and dedicated one-on-one account onboarding and support, helping dealers every step along the way.
As one of the largest online marketplaces for buying and selling all things automotive, eBay Motors enables dealers to reach eBay Marketplaces’ 120 million users worldwide. A passenger vehicle sells every two minutes on eBay, and in Q2 2013, 76 percent of all vehicles sold on eBay Motors were interstate transactions. eBay Motors also empowers dealers to reach customers in the way they want to shop, including via online and mobile. As of May 2013, 11,000 vehicles are sold each week through eBay mobile apps.
