This drive from the eCommerce marketplace has shown no signs of slowing down, just a few months ago eBay UK partnered with the iconic tv show “Pimp My Ride” and eBay US hosted its own Ultimate Road Trip across a number of states.
For the past few years thanks to the pandemic and global supply chain issues, both new and used car prices soared, resulting in more people than ever before turning to sites like eBay to help maintain and extend the lifespan of their existing vehicles. This in turn created a new buzz around the aftermarket and performance car parts industry and led to a huge opportunity for many sellers.
That opportunity still exists to this day, as fuel prices are coming down yet vehicle prices still remain quite high, huge numbers of buyers are looking for ways that they can maintain or improve their vehicles on a budget.
