How can I make my car lists attractive to buyers?
Since buyers can’t take a look at your car closely, it is important for you to provide as many as details in your listings:
- Take photos from several vantage points can help buyers see your cars better. (Example: exterior: all four sides, interior, engine, odometer, close-ups of any dings, dents, stains, or other damage)
- Support documents can help increase the buyer’s confidence in your cars. Upload your Carfax report if you have one.
- Provide warranty and Free returns
What are some rules and requirements I need to know when I list my cars?
You will need to upload new photos for every new listing. Same images will be regarded as duplicate listing and would not be approved. The images should be inconsistent with your cars and the description.
The description should not contain your contact information, weblink or logo of another website.

How should I price my cars?
Setting the right price for your car will lead to more bids and the successful sale of your vehicle. In general, set the starting price low to attract buyers' attention can attract more buyers to join the auction. To maximize your profit, we recommend you to set a fair reserve price, which is the minimum full price that you are willing to sell your car. The car will be sold ONLY WHEN the reserve price is met.
Please note: You will need to post the full price of your car. Don’t put the down payment price or installment payment price as the FULL price. A misleading full priced car will NOT be approved in reviewing.
