Selling on eBay Motors
Use at least eight characters in your password, including numbers and upper and lower case letters.
Our most successful dealers find that high-speed Internet access (broadband) is essential to efficiently list and track their inventory on eBay Motors. High-speed examples include: cable, DSL and satellite. Contact your local phone or cable company for more information.
Solution Provider Listing Software
Most successful dealers rely on Solution Providers, allowing them to spend more time closing deals and less time creating listings.
Most listing software involves an additional charge, but in the long run you'll save time and money on each listing. Ask for the details on exact charges before deciding which software provider to use.
Honesty and full disclosure lead to more sales and greater profits.
To save time, fill out a copy of the Listing Checklist as you photograph the vehicle.
