Upload Vehicles to

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Good day, if you are here you are looking for instructions on how to import your dealerships’ vehicle inventory in to

Here are the steps I’ve gone through and next time, I don’t want to spend the time, so hopefully I can save you some time too.

1) Make sure you have an account

2) Contact for ftp login credentials

3) Create an export file with the following keys for import. (Dealer_Id,Stock Number, Year, Make, Model, Trim, VIN, Mileage, Price, Exterior Color, Interior Color, Transmission, Image, Description, Body Type, Engine Type, Drive Type, Fuel Type )

4) Lablel your images correctly, (img#_stockORVin#.ext) so stockNumber 1239 = 1_1239.jpg, 2_1239,jpg, 3_1239.jpg etc…

5) Setup a cron script to export the data file with the proper image names in the image field and zips the .txt file and the images together

6) Setup a cron script to auto-upload images and data

7) Sell a bunch of cars
