In most cases, your customers will first discover your vehicles and review the specifications and photos on third-party
automotive classified websites before visiting your online dealership.
AutoTrader.com and Cars.com are the two largest automotive classifieds in the U.S. Thousands of people search
their online inventories daily. AutoTrader.com and Cars.com accept automatic inventory feeds from approved
third-party data providers; CarWizard.net is now the approved third-party data provider for both websites.
We can feed your inventory daily into your AutoTrader.com or Cars.com accounts. After setup, the inventory
feeds will be automatic. There is nothing you need to do; we will take care of everything for you. This is a FREE service
for our customers and comes standard with all our car dealer websites.
AutoTrader.com and Cars.com will also feed your inventory to other major automotive classified websites such
Kelly Blue Book, MSN Autos, etc. greatly increasing the chance of generating more leads.
Both AutoTrader.com and Cars.com process all feed files once a day. Therefore, there is no benefit from feeding
the inventory more frequently. On the other hand, AutoTrader.com does require feeds to be submitted at least 3 times
a week. By using our automated service, you will not need to worry about these scheduling details.
We will validate all data before each feed to make sure that your data is in compliance with AutoTrader.com and Cars.com
policies. The data is checked for required parameters, format, length, etc. We will promptly email you a detailed report in case
of any identified problems.
AutoTrader.com and Cars.com do not allow submission of multiple “physical” photos. In order to submit multiple
photos, they must be hosted on a third-party server and submitted via URLs. It is not a problem since you host your
vehicle photos with us. We can submit up to 20 pictures for each vehicle.
