eBay Adds TecDoc Product Fitment Data Service
eBay auto parts and accessory sellers can now link to product and fitment data for over 500 global and Australian supplier brands for direct display and listing on eBay Australia.
TecDoc Australia and eBay Australia have concluded negotiations that allow eBay sellers to access TecDoc Parts Data securely simplifying online selling for auto parts and accessories. This deal means that any eBay parts and accessories seller who concludes a contract with TecDoc for a data package can have that data package made available within the eBay environment.
“Its the logical next step to add supplier product and fitment data to the vehicle KTYPE information already powering the eBay vehicle look-up. This makes it that much easier for eBay sellers to get on with selling leaving the data management to suppliers. Our arrangement with PARts means local suppliers can also enjoy the benefits.“ says Andrew Mattock from TecDoc Asia Pacific.
TecDoc data packages include product, fitment and image data for over 1.0 million part links to Australian and import vehicles. This data includes vehicle fitment links and is maintained by the supplier allowing the data subscriber or seller to list all the available product and fitment details.

This is facilitated by Enform and PARts of Sydney who also aggregate and distribute product and fitment data for many leading local suppliers using the TecDoc back bone. This allows TecDoc global data to be blended and distributed with local supplier data. Enform will deploy all of the relevant linked data from PARts into the active section of eBay Australia allowing the eBay seller to focus on merchandising using their price and stock information.
PARts is a permission based system so suppliers and sellers have full control of who sees their data and in what environment. PARts includes a full management and admin system in the cloud allowing suppliers and sellers to interact and manage their data. The key point being, it’s the suppliers and sellers data.

The service mirrors similar agreements between TecDoc and eBay UK, Germany and other online channels. You can read more about eBay and parts compatibility here.
