Car Dealer Autotrader Inventory Posting Software, Nightly FTP Upload, Online Marketing

Dealer Autotrader Inventory Posting Software

Autotrader is one of the biggest car marketing channels on the Internet as well as offline media. If you are thinking about spending some money on online marketing, this is the venue to go. Carsinia provides automatic inventory posting software to Autotrader.

A lot of DMS (dealer management system) providers have integration with Autotrader. That does not mean they are the same. From a marketing perspective, features may seem like check marks in a list but there is quite a lot of detail to it. For example, a major online marketing software for car dealers does not even show what kind of info they post to Autotrader. Or when they actually sent the inventory last. With Carsinia, you can see all the details and times of the the cars sent to Autotrader. Every night, we put all info on your vehicles in two files (used and new cars separately) and we upload it to ftp.autotrader.com via your FTP account.

Note about FTP account setup: You need to get an FTP account with Autotrader separately. Carsinia only provides the integration and automatic inventory posting. The details about your service agreement with Auto trader may affect how your listings appear.

Automatically Added Comments: You can add auto comments for every vehicle posted to Autotrader. This is commonly used for adding a line about invitation to your website for viewing all your inventory. For example: "We have many high quality used cars like this one. Check out our website at carsiniademo.com to view all our inventory. We are located at 555 dealer st. San Diego, CA."

New Lines: As surprising as it may be, new lines are not handled properly by many dealer software companies when posting to Autotrader. We translate your new lines and your comments properly during posting and keep the best look for your ads.

Standardized Features: Autotrader has a standardized set of features to be used during posts. Using these codes makes your ad look better and also leaves more space in comments. A major online dealer marketing software provider does not use these codes. Carsinia goes the extra mile and matches the VIN decoding results with standardized features as much as possible.

Comments Limits: The maximum number of characters allowed in vehicle comments is 2000. Your VIN decoding results that cannot be matched to a standard feature will be sent in comments as well. If at the end, your comments are going to be truncated, we will let you know. In that case, you can either cut down on the specifications or your comments.
