Basic Setup for The Buying Platform Follow
Out of the box, The Buying Platform comes pre-configured with our standard list of questions and default deductions based upon those answers.
For any changes you wish to make to the default configuration, email email@example.com.
Customizing the "Sell Now" Heading and Text
After a consumer receives their market report, you can customize the text they see to encourage them to get a firm offer on their trade-in.
Customizing The Base Deduction & Total Deduction Boundaries
The "base deduction" guarantees that every market report a consumer sees has a minimum amount for reconditioning, and an explanation of that fee.
The "total deduction boundaries" include three elements:
- Minimum Amount - this is your true minimal amount that you would ever spend to recondition a vehicle
- Maximum Percent - this an upper limit to the total deduction amount. If a dealer sets a maximum percent of 10%, then the most the deductions could ever total up to on a $20,000 vehicle is $2,000.
- Maximum Amount - this is another upper limit to the total deduction amount. Our software will automatically choose the lesser of the max percent or max amount when presenting a user with their final value.
The max percent and amount are safeguards to prevent the deductions from becoming too high.
In the example below, the software would choose $1,200 as the total deduction amount, preventing the total deductions from being unrealistic for the dealer and end user.
Final Offer Presented - Customize The Congratulations & Disclaimer
Once the user completes the questions, they return back to their market report and now have a single number for their trade-in, instead of a range of estimated price.
Dealers can customize this "Congratulations" message, as well as the disclaimers.
Dealers can also choose to display a mockup of a check to the consumer, and can control the look and feel of that check with CSS.
