Customizing Questions and Deductions Follow
When you get started with The Buying Platform, we'll already have a list of default questions and deductions. Unless your dealership knows exactly what your average reconditioning costs are, we recommend starting with our default configurations. We can easily adjust them after a few weeks to fine tune the results to match your buying strategy and local market.
To add new questions, re-order the questions, or change the deductions email email@example.com.
Types of Questions & Setting Deduction Amounts
You can choose from our "built-in" questions, or create your own custom question
Let the user select a single answer or multiple answers. You can have as many answer choices as you need.
The "Disqualifying" box means that the consumer WILL NOT be presented with a price for their vehicle, but instead told to bring their car into the dealership for a final appraisal.
The "Minimum Deduction" amount is exactly that. You can choose different amounts for different answers.
The "Percent Deduction" enables you to deduct higher amounts for higher value vehicles that are more expensive to recondition
The "Maximum Deduction" sets an upper limit on the amount you'll deduct for each answer.
A slider question lets consumers select a numerical value for their answer. Example: On a scale of 1-10, with one being awful and 10 being perfect, how would you rate your interior condition?
These allow the consumers to answer Yes or No to question, with the ability to ask a follow-up question. In the example below, if a consumer answers Yes to their vehicle being in an accident, the software asks the follow-up question, "Was it towed?".
If yes, it was towed, then this disqualifies the vehicle from receiving a trade-in offer right now
If no, it was not towed, then the software makes the deductions
If the consumer answers No, not in an accident, there is no deduction and the next question appears.
