Epicor Helps Florida Jobber Get Established on eBay Motors

Miami-based New Jersey Auto Parts has become the latest auto parts business to establish a successful online retail presence using the Epicor ListingExpert software solution for eBay Motors.

Epicor ListingExpert enables businesses to list virtually any part, in any quantity, for sale through the global eBay Motors marketplace. The solution generates comprehensive eBay Motors product listings that include part description, application references and photos as well as quantity, pricing and shipping information.

“This software solution is awesome,” said Roger Tapanes, owner and president of New Jersey Auto Parts. “Even though we’re just getting started, we’re already making multiple sales a day on just the part numbers we have in the store. We will be expanding to our full available inventory as soon as possible, and Epicor will automate the listing process so we can focus on fulfilling online orders and serving our wholesale customers.”

Epicor ListingExpert is fully integrated with New Jersery Auto Parts’ previously installed Epicor Eagle®business management system. Confirmed orders are transmitted to their system via secure Epicor AConneX electronic connectivity. The solution also automatically updates their inventory records following each sale.

“eBay Motors is one of the aftermarket’s most promising new channels,” said Paul Magin, senior director, content and connectivity, retail distribution solutions for Epicor. “Epicor ListingExpert helps distributors and jobbers reach millions of prospective customers around the world without investing in additional overhead or losing focus on their core business.”

Sellers utilizing Epicor ListingExpert simply provide Epicor with lists of products to be sold via eBay Motors. Epicor automatically populates each listing with all required part information as well as pricing and shipping charges as established by the seller. Each resulting order is transmitted to the seller’s business management system and payment is processed through PayPal.
