eBay Motors Group confirms lockdown support measures for UK dealers
Following the government's confirmation that automotive retailers in England must close their vehicle showrooms for at least four weeks from 5 November 2020, eBay Motors Group has confirmed the following measures to support all its advertising dealers across the UK:
Free advertising throughout December 2020: Advertising vehicles on all eBay Motors Group platforms will be free throughout December 2020. This means dealer invoices for classified advertising products will be zero for this period, though other products (such as dealer websites) will continue to be chargeable.
Removal of over-posting fees in December: Dealers will not be charged for any reasonable over-posting on their accounts during December.
Market insight and analysis: We will be providing regular Market View updates over the coming weeks to help automotive retailers understand wider market dynamics, which will be available on our website.
Matt Barham, Country Manager, eBay Classifieds Group UK said: "We hope the reduction in advertising fees and other measures we have put in place will provide all our dealer partners across the UK with meaningful support as they enter into another unusual and challenging period of trading. We continue to see positive levels of consumer demand across our platforms and wish retailers well as they adjust once again to selling cars via Click & Collect and Home Delivery and building their pipeline of orders."
