eBay looking to team with automakers to sell certified used cars

eBay Motors said today that it wants to team up with other automakers to sell certified used-vehicle programs to its online auction market place. Currently eBay has a partnership with GM and its certified used car dealers. Over 3,900 of GM dealers list their entire inventories on eBay Motors.

Korecker said the eBay is looking for an automated way for automakers to upload their inventory.
