eBay Motors Goes Local with Dealer Subscriptions

eBay Motors has launched a new subscription-based service for auto dealers to list their entire used-vehicle inventory to customers within a 100-mile radius of the dealership.
eBay Motors Local Market costs $1,000/month, which covers listing fees for an unlimited amount of vehicles, with no individual insertion fee per vehicle. As with traditional eBay Motors listings, a $50 sale fee applies for vehicles that sell online. The new subscription service requires no contract or commitment.
All eBay Motors Local Market listings utilize eBay's Best Offer format. Buyers submit their Best Offer, which the dealer can accept, reject or counter-offer to build buyer commitment and even negotiate the final price online. Buyers may also find a vehicle locally on eBay Motors and choose to go into the dealership to negotiate and close the transaction in person.
"eBay Motors Local Market is designed to help dealers engage the growing number of consumers migrating online to find their next vehicle," said Rob Chesney, senior director of eBay Motors. "Today's consumers are demanding a one-stop automotive shopping experience that provides access to deep local inventory, the ability to negotiate price and the option of an in-person test drive."
