I want to add a parts store on our website and on EBAY. We use Reynolds for our DMS (parts inventory) and we use Vinsolutions for our website. Can someone point me in the right direction to create a parts online shopping cart feature for both our website and EBAY. I know I need a way for the parts to push from our DMS into a listing tool. What tools can I use?
THANK YOU!!

Not sure if you want a full blown parts eCommerce site or if you want an accessories website but you could probably contact the folks over at Insigniagroup in Rock Hill and they could probably help you out. They could probably help advise with ebay to.

Here's a link to our toyota stores accessory website. We are only showing a very very small fraction of all the accessories and parts they offer in their tool.

Julie,
For Parts and Accessories e-commerce the two recommendations are Simple Part (www.simplepart.com) and Revolution Parts (www.revolutionparts.com);Both are great companies with very smart people. Both offer success stories with dealerships. They also approach the business in different ways so it will give you a choice on exactly how you want to attack this business. In our experience, e-commerce is all about inventory, ad buys and logistics - volume wins.

Once you have e-commerce rocking, please think of us for your showroom and service drive Vehicle Personalization Solution.
Can you reach out to me to set up a demo?

It really depends on your focus. Does your current platform allow for E-commerce? There are plenty of 3rd parties out there, some have been mentioned, but you could easily (get a WordPress guy) set up a sub-domain and install something like https://themes.vamtam.com/?theme=auto or http://demo.lpd-themes.com/preview/?theme=456-Repair or http://themeforest.net/item/fix-ride-automechanic-car-repair-theme/full_screen_preview/12162086 or for a full-width (on your current site page) using http://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-carparts-filter-plugin/6556524 or a combination of both. It's fairly simple and I'm surprised groups like Dealer Inspire and Dealer X haven't fixed-ops WP options. Maybe they do and I'm not paying close enough attention, but there is money there.

As for eBay, I am positive they accept product and inventory feeds, so look into that process and incorporation.
