Some websites that allow individuals to list and sell auto parts are JustParts.com, eBay.com and Shopify.com. JustParts.com and eBay.com take small fees out of each sale prices, while Shopify.com charges a monthly fee for its storefront technology.
JustParts.com acts as a platform between buyers and sellers of automobile parts. As of May 2015, over 4.5 million parts are listed on the website. Users can list individual parts for buyers to browse or users can apply to promote third-party websites on JustParts.com. Posting a part for sale is completely free; fees are only deducted after the part sells.
Sellers can also list and promote auto parts on eBay.com. Most listings include pictures of the item along with a description. It is free to post listings on eBay; as on JustParts.com, though, a fee is deducted after the sale is complete.
Shopify uses a different business model by providing an interface for sellers to create their own parts marketplace websites. Shopify simplifies the implementation and process of creating the website and listing parts. The benefits of Shopify include a simple interface, business tools, professional templates and customer support. As of 2015, Shopify provides a 14-day free trial, with monthly fees ranging from $14 to $179 depending on how many features the storefront uses.
