Today's consumers have become accustomed to seamless experiences on their mobile devices, and automotive professionals are no exception. On eBay Motors, a single car part is purchased every three seconds via mobile devices. Couple this mobile-first preference with the rise of the connected vehicle and it's clear the automotive industry is poised for explosive growth – it simply needs the right platform.
Today's repair order processes are costing repair shops an average of fifteen minutes, but technology can enable a quicker experience. By integrating with eBay's APIs, ShopLite™ connects automotive repair shops to eBay's vast selection of aftermarket automotive parts. With ShopLite™, discovering and ordering the right part is a one-click affair.
"Through this partnership with SHIFTMobility, we are extending our technology and expansive selection of automotive parts to independent repair shops," said Matt Thomas, Director of Merchandising, eBay Motors. "This relationship allows us to further provide a powerful and simplified shopping experience for these critical business customers."
The integration with SHIFTMobility is part of a broader API initiative undertaken by eBay to help connect buyers and sellers together seamlessly.
