eBay Motors announced on Tuesday it has recently added new partners to its Dealer Referrer Network, further expanding its selling platform to the U.S. dealer community.
Through the Dealer Referrer Network, partners can sell eBay’s subscription packages to their existing dealer networks.
eBay said increased dealer partners can ensure that buyers on its platform have a wide selection of vehicles listings direct from dealers.
“At eBay, we’re committed to providing our buyers with the best choice and most relevant inventory. Specific to our automotive shoppers, the new dealers we’ve signed on will help expand the breadth and depth of our vehicle inventory,” Tony Hoang, general manager of Vehicles at eBay Motors said in a news release.
“With the Dealer Referrer Network, eBay will be able to extend its reach to many dealers nationwide, introducing a new subscription model that’s armed with strong-lead generation and seller insight tools.”
The subscription packages available through the program provide dealers with ability to combine local listings and national buy-on-site listings, flexibility to easily modify inventory promotion and convenience to list inventory faster on eBay’s Vehicle Merchandising Platform, according to eBay.
“We’ve been a longtime partner with eBay Motors,” said Ray Basha of Auction123.
“With the new eBay Dealer Referrer Network, we’re able to help bring more inventory onto the eBay site. Our dealers are particularly enthusiastic as it allows them to get exposure to millions of global buyers.”
eBay currently has 167 million active buyers and approximately 1.1 billion live listings on eBay Marketplace.
