Do you sell parts for motorcycles, scooters, dirt bikes, and ATVs? Are you looking for the best online marketplace to sell your parts for snowmobiles, personal watercrafts, and jet boats?
If you’re a powersports parts seller planning to sell online, you can build your own website or use an eCommerce platform. However, online sales doesn’t have to be limited to your website. You also need an online presence on the most visited online marketplaces, where the majority of consumers are already looking for auto and powersports parts – eBay and Amazon.
eBay Motors is for selling all things automotive, including parts for powersports. eBay is categorized by cars and trucks, parts and accessories, motorcycles, powersports, boats, and so on. People looking for parts on eBay Motors can shop parts by category. The categories are as follows:
- All Parts & Accessories
- Car & Truck Parts
- Wheels, Tires & Parts
- Motorcycle Parts
- ATV, Side-by-Side, & UTV Parts
- Commercial Truck Parts
- Automotive Tools & Supplies
If the customer is looking for powersports parts specifically, they can click ‘Other Vehicles’ on the ‘Find Parts & Accessories’ page. They will find a Category drop-down list that will show them options like ATV, Side-by-Side, UTV, Personal Watercraft Parts, Snowmobile Parts, and so on. Because eBay Motors makes it so easy for consumers to find the powersports parts they need, eBay is one of the top places for you to sell online.
Similar to eBay, consumers can also shop by category on Amazon. They can find powersports parts by clicking the Automotive department followed by ‘Motorcycle & Powersports.’ The Motorcycle & Powersports section can be further categorized by parts, protective gear, vehicles, fluids and maintenance, and accessories.
Becoming a seller of auto parts and powersports parts on Amazon comes with a list of requirements, which include having a professional selling plan and compliant product images. To be successful at selling powersports parts on Amazon, you need to give your customers confidence that your powersports parts will fit their vehicles.
Customers can check if the part fits by specifying year/make/model (fitment) and clicking ‘Check Fit’ on your product listing. Fitment or compatibility refers to the brand/part number combinations that can be applied to certain vehicles. If you don’t provide clear and accurate fitment data, a potential customer may never know your parts fit their vehicles. They won’t find you in a search, or they may move on to another listing that provides complete fitment information.
Unlike eBay Motors, Amazon doesn’t have a user interface for specifying compatibility. Instead, it has a Part Finder within the Amazon catalog.
Whether you sell on eBay or Amazon, one of the biggest challenges will be providing customer service. Some customers will struggle to fit an item, and they may want to call you to confirm they’re getting the right part before they place their order. It costs time and money to provide 24/7 customer service. And no matter how high-quality your listings’ photos are, they may not give customers peace of mind that they’re ordering a part that is compatible with their powersport vehicle.
However, both Amazon and eBay have fitment restrictions that may mean lost sales and opportunities for you. myFitment is the solution that fills those gaps.
