Auction123 Fully Automated Craigslist Posting Application

The Auction123 Craigslist Application offers a fully automated process for listing and maintaining your inventory live on Craigslist. Dealers participating in this program have been reporting a large increase in inbound calls, walk-ins, and sales!

Through a series of filters and settings, you can determine which inventory should be eligible to go live on Craigslist. Let us know your store’s monthly Craigslist budget, and the application will automatically list your vehicles during the days and time range you want! Furthermore, the application eliminates the need to pre-purchase postings from Craigslist or manually enter your credit card information for each posting. Simply enter your credit card information into the application stored on your PC, and your posting fees will be automatically charged to your card.

Eye-catching ads are created using your images, vehicle data, and descriptions. Each posting displays multiple calls to action for interested shoppers to contact you about your vehicle. We also include a link to a complete vehicle details page along with a website showroom displaying your entire inventory.

As pricing and vehicle data changes, the application can revise your live ads automatically. Additionally, choose if you want to repost live ads on a set schedule or elect to have the process end your postings as your vehicles are sold.
