Aug. 30, 2017—eBay announced the availability of Online Repair Manuals for over 80 percent of vehicles on the road. The manuals are available as an add-on purchase whenever a customer buys a part or accessory on eBay Motors, according to eSeller Cafe.
"With Online Repair Manuals, we are taking the shopping experience one step further for our buyers by providing them with the parts and resources—including expert instructions—that can help shoppers make their rides an extension of their unique individuality and meet their needs," said Todd Madeiros, vice president of eBay Motors Parts & Accessories.
Once purchased, Online Repair Manuals are accessible via an access code sent by email.
eBay’s Online Repair Manual program is a time limited subscription service. Buyers will have the choice to purchase access to them for 14 days, 90 days, or a full year.
The addition of Online Repair Manuals follows a continuing development of vehicle fitment data, item specifics for the parts and accessories categories, and expansion for a new tire installation service.
Today, eBay Motors Parts & Accessories is one of the largest automotive marketplaces with some of the widest selection of parts and accessories. Unlike traditional auto parts stores, eBay Motors Parts & Accessories offers more than just new parts.
The category features many used, refurbished, performance, and rare spare parts offered by professional sellers and individual car enthusiasts.
eBay did not provide pricing information on the new Online Repair Manuals.
