SELLING PARTS & ACCESSORIES THROUGH AMAZON & EBAY
With new car sales and collision repair declining, selling parts online can make up for dealership revenue loss. Selling online through marketplaces like Amazon and eBay is a great way to add new sales channels and revenue while reaching more customers. There is still plenty of opportunity for dealers not already online to join in on the increasing revenue gains through online marketplaces.

So, what will it cost you to successfully sell parts and accessories on Amazon and eBay? We did the math just to show you how much time and money your dealership will save by partnering with RevolutionParts instead of doing it on your own.
THE CHALLENGES OF DOING IT YOURSELF
Managing Amazon and eBay listings effectively often requires additional resources. Relying on your Parts Manager to create and optimize listings, adjust shipping prices, and monitor sales will require a lot of time in order to be successful.
On top of managing all the existing orders coming in from the phone and the service department, it’s more than likely your Parts Manager is already too busy to dedicate the time required to list your entire inventory online.

If Your Inventory is 3,000 Products, It’ll Take You…
Just to get 3,000 parts and accessories up on Amazon & eBay, it’ll take your Parts Manager almost half of the entire year, not including any holidays. That also doesn’t include changes to the listings, parts sold, or new inventory that comes in. At that rate, you could’ve sold thousands of dollars in parts and accessories with RevolutionParts.
With man hours like this, you might have to hire additional team members to manage your Amazon and eBay stores. But, hiring an additional salaried employee to take on the responsibility of these online sites could cost your parts department and dealership anywhere between $50,000-$70,000 a year. This cost doesn’t even include your listing fees on Amazon and eBay.
