Auction123 Now Offering an Exciting New eBay Listing Subscription Package

Auction123 is excited to offer a new eBay listing subscription package unlike anything that has ever been available to dealers before now. The Premier Placement Package (P3 Package) provides dealers with the opportunity to purchase listing “slots” on eBay, which can be used to launch and swap national Auction-style and Fixed Price listings throughout the month. Prior to the P3 package, each listing was for a single vehicle to be live for a set number of days. These new, affordable packages allow the ability to rotate vehicles within your listing “slots”, greatly increasing the national exposure you can gain on the #1 site for automotive traffic. As an added bonus, the remainder of your used inventory will be automatically listed in the Local Market format.

Best of all, the Auction123 system provides a 100% hands-free solution to manage your P3 package. Through a series of filters and posting priorities, you can easily identify the inventory that should be eligible as a national listing. The Auction123 system will do the rest, seamlessly launching your vehicles in your preferred listing format. As listings expire or vehicles are marked sold, we will automatically launch a new ad to take its place. If you have a specific vehicle you want listed as a national ad, the Auction123 system allows you to quickly select which live ad you wish to replace with your hand picked vehicle.

To sign up today or for more information, call (888) 514-0123 or email Sales@Auction123.com.

At this time, eBay’s P3 Package is only available for listings in the Cars & Trucks, Commercial Truck, and RVs & Campers categories.

Mapping Your Auction123 Images to eBay’s Gallery Images

eBay’s Picture Services allows up to 24 images to be uploaded directly to eBay.com, with your first 12 images being free for each eBay Motors listing. These images display in the eBay gallery at the top of your listing and are prominent in the mobile view of your eBay ad. The Auction123 system automatically sends the maximum number of free images available to the eBay gallery. However, you have the ability to increase the number of images sent for all listings from your default eBay settings.

We’ve added a new setting that allows you to select which images in the Auction123 system are used for the eBay Picture Services. This provides an opportunity to create a better representation of the vehicle within the 12-24 images that are uploaded directly to eBay, especially if you capture images in the same order for each car.

Picture Services Mappings

To set the order of your eBay images:

  • Click on Account Settings under the Preferences section in the left-hand navigation menu.
  • Click on the eBay tab.
  • Locate the “eBay Picture Service” section and turn on the switch for “Enable Manual Photo Ordering”.
  • Set which Auction123 image slot should be used for each of the eBay Picture Services images.
  • When you have finished setting the order, click Save.

New Automated Posting Process for eBay National Listings

Auction123 understands that one of the major challenges faced by dealers who depend on eBay as part of their online marketing program is the time and energy it takes to create and manage their listings. We have worked closely with eBay to develop and implement tools which streamline and automate the listing process and the management of live listings! Simply let us now how many Auction Style or Fixed Priced ads you would like to go live each month, which days of the week you would like for us to post, your preferred pricing format, and our system will do the rest! By eliminating the need for manual interaction, you can now focus primarily on working with the bids, offers, and questions received from eBay listings as you do with any other online classified site or marketplace!

Inventory Selection:

The first step is to determine which inventory will be eligible to list. Choose from a variety of filters such as condition, price range, year range, minimum image count, and include or exclude certain makes and/or models. Next, choose how Auction123 will select from the vehicles that are eligible to be listed. We can systematically take a snapshot of the makes or the models included in your subset of eligible inventory and be sure that the number of listings we push live match the ratios that exist within your subset! Want us to push your aging units live first? No problem! We have priority settings in place to let you choose how we should prioritize which vehicles should go live by vehicle age, price, or model year.

Inventory Launch:

Now that we know which inventory you want to go live, we can set the days and time you want us to list for you. Simply tell us which days you prefer to have your eBay listings go live, and our system will do the rest. You can also decide if we should continue to relisted your initial ads until sold or if you would want us to automatically rotate which vehicles we push live from the pool of eligible inventory.

Listing Format:

Do you prefer to list your vehicles in the Auction style format or would you rather have vehicles live in the Buy It Now format? How about a mix of both? Simply tell us how many listings should go live in each format each month, or tell us a percentage of your active inventory you want to go live on eBay Motors. For your Auction style listings, we can set the duration, your preferred starting price (either a fixed amount or a percentage of your Internet price), and if you would like a Buy It Now included or not. For your Fixed Price ads, let us know the duration, what percentage your Buy It Now should be of your Internet price, and if you would like the Best Offer option included or not.

Automated Listing Management:

Once inventory has been launched to eBay, we have a series of processes and settings to allow for automated listing management. These solutions allow you to simply work the leads and respond to questions that are submitted from your ads.

  • Revisions – We can automatically revise eligible live listings with pricing and data updates generated from the import source (DMS, Service Provider, Pricing Tool, etc.).
  • Sold Vehicles – We can automatically end vehicles that have been marked sold from the import source, reducing the likelihood of a “double sale” of a vehicle on the lot and on eBay.
  • Automated Title Generator – eBay provides a space to enter 80 characters of searchable text for customers to find your listings. We offer settings to automate this process by allowing you to choose the data fields to be included in the title and the order in which it should be presented.
  • Auto Lower Reserve – eBay recommends you lower the Reserve on your auction style listings 2-4 times per 7 day listing. We’ve included a setting to automate this process by lowering the Reserve price $1 on the schedule you set.
  • Auto Decline of Best Offers – Setting which auto declines any Best Offer that is less that X% of your Buy It Now price or Classified price.
  • Bidder Contact Distribution – Choose to not send bids to your CRM or email that are less than X% of the Reserve price. These leads will be held within your Auction123 Dashboard in the event you wish to push them to the CRM at a later date.
  • Best Offer Distribution – Choose to not send declined Best Offers to your CRM or email. These leads will be held within your Auction123 Dashboard in the event you wish to push them to the CRM at a later date.

If you are interested in setting up our Automated eBay Posting service, please call us at (888) 514-0123, Option 2 or email Support@Auction123.com.
