One of the great advantages of WebManager is its vehicle export tool, which allows you to send current vehicle listings to more than 100 popular online auto marketplaces. In today’s how-to, we’ll show you how to automatically update your listings four times per day on sites like Cars.com, AutoTrader and eBay Motors.
From the WebManager dashboard, hover over Settings at the top, then Inventory, then click Exports.
At the top of this screen, you can choose which vehicle price you want to export, as well as a few options for your vehicle description. Below that, on the left hand side, you will see WebManager’s website export list. Each site may look for something different, so to see what you need to do, click the name of the site you want to export to and read the instructions that pop up.
To enable an export, click the check box to the left of the site name. If the site wants you to input a Dealer ID, you can put that in the middle column. The right column will tell you when that site will export. (Please note that all time stamps are Pacific Standard Time). When you have finished, click the Save Changes button.
From the exports window, you will see all of your Live vehicles on the left. To the right of each vehicle, you will see a box for each export site you have set up. If the box is green, that means that the vehicle is selected to go to that export site. If the box is gray, that means that the vehicle is NOT selected to go to that export site. Clicking on a box will toggle between the vehicle exporting to that site and not exporting to that site on the next export cycle.
You can also view the export history for all of your vehicles by hovering over Inventory at the top, then clicking on Export History.
From the Export History page, you will see a list of all the vehicles that went out, when they went out, and which sites they were distributed to. These are organized by export site, but you can choose a different sorting method by clicking on the arrow to the right of date. You can also filter which site you want to see the export history for — under whichever date you’re looking at — by clicking on the arrow to the right of Site.
