This acquisition is an important step in growing eBay’s key parts and accessories category and advancing its tech-led reimagination by bringing a valuable, tech-based tool in-house and ensuring continued benefits for eBay sellers and buyers.
myFitment Helps Sellers Provide Accurate Fitment Data
myFitment’s tools help sellers by optimizing fitment data for their listings, ensuring customers order the right parts and accessories for their vehicle, reducing returns, and increasing buyer satisfaction.
“eBay is home to more than half a billion parts and accessories globally, ranging from brand new replacement parts to the vintage and hard to find. As we look to elevate the user experience within this category, it is critical we provide innovative tools to help shoppers find the right parts at the right price,” said Chris Prill, VP, eBay Motors.
“The integration of myFitment’s proven technology marks an important step in eBay’s tech-led reimagination. Not only will we optimize the listing process for sellers, but we will offer an added layer of confidence for buyers by simplifying how they navigate inventory to find parts that fit their vehicle.”
“We founded myFitment to help online parts and accessory sellers use technology to better connect with their customers, increase their sales, and grow their businesses,” said Brian Williams, chief operating officer, myFitment.
“eBay is one of the leading platforms in the world for people looking to start or grow their online business, and I can think of no better partner to help bring our technology to more of the vehicle and motorsport businesses and enthusiasts we have served for nearly ten years.”
This announcement follows yesterday’s news that eBay is acquiring Trading Cards and Collectibles marketplace TCGplayer, making it now two acquisitions in a row the company made to bolster two of its focus categories.
