List With Parts Compatibility
Reach more buyers and simplify your listings by adding Parts Compatibility (also known as “fitment”). You can add all the Years, Makes, Models, Trims, and Engines that your part fits (up to 1,000 or 3,000 combinations, depending on the category), which makes it easy for buyers to find the right parts for their vehicle.
There are two ways to add fitment to your listing—through our Parts Catalog or manually. First search our Parts Catalog to see if your item is available. Selecting an item from our Parts Catalog will automatically add all the compatible vehicles and important information like the part Brand and Manufacturer Part Number to your listing. If you can’t find your part in our Parts Catalog, you can continue to the listing form and manually add the compatible vehicles.
Enhance your business search results listings by upgrading to our new Structured Data changes. We are revamping and expanding our recommended item specifics and values in all P&A categories to help your buyers find your listings faster and easier.
