The internet access in your computer and mobile devices is not only for messaging or socializing. The usefulness is quite enormous. Let’s use this opportunity to discuss how to sell cars online in Nigeria without joining a dealership association or needing the service of a professional.
The Nigerian marketplace is gradually shifting to the online platform. In order words, Nigerians are becoming more familiar with the internet community. It is no more the era where the only thing you can do on the internet in Nigeria is limited to sending emails, surfing the internet or doing a project research. These days, virtually everything can be done online, including buying and selling of goods and services.
There are quite a lot of eCommerce websites available in Nigerian today. And these sites are thriving just because they are getting encouraging patronage from Nigerians.
Enough of all that talk; our focus is on how one can maximize the new found love Nigerians have for buying things online, to sell a car. I keep wondering; before the internet gained so much popularity in Nigeria, how were people able to find buyers for items such as cars? It must have taken a very stressful process, such as using the expensive, traditional means of advertising to promote their businesses.
Imagine where one has car(s) to sell, especially in the case of a private seller, who is not a car dealer and as such, does not have a store where he displays his car. For instance, let’s say someone who is in dare needs of cash wanted to sell off his valuable property, such as his car, where will he sell it? How fast can he get a buyer or even a good deal for his car? This is where the internet that we have today swoops in, to give a perfect answer.
Nigeria can boast of very trustworthy sites exclusively made for sales of cars. For the desperately-in-need-of-cash guy who wants to sell his car, or the car dealer who wants to improve sales, these sites are available to you to post your ads, get interested customers and sell your car(s) – very simple!
To begin the process of selling your car online, you must have a car, of course, then head over to the car sales website of your choice and take the following steps:
- Register on the website
- Upload the photos of your car. Most of these websites require a .jpg or .png photo format. So take very eye catching photos of your car and upload.
- You will come to the point where you enter your car information. These information will help your potential buyers find your car among the many other cars available for sale on the website. Information such as vehicle registration number, make and model of your car, engine size, year of manufacture and very importantly, your price is needed in this field.
- You will also need to enter your details. Your name, contact email, phone number. With these, your customers can contact you. Therefore, make sure you enter a valid email and an active phone number so you don’t miss any customers.
- Finally, you enter your payment options which include mobile money, cash, quickteller, etc. It is up to you to set it as is convenient for you.
Now that you have seen the process of setting up your car for sale online, the next step is to see the websites where you can enter all this information and put up your car for sale. Find them below:
Cheki boasts of being the Nigeria’s no. 1 car site. And this record is not unfounded: it is backed up by rankings on www.alexa.com . According to them, they “reach more car buyers than any other car website” Statistics from Google show that Cheki records over 2.5million page views and 350,000 car buyers per month. You can advertise with just N2,000 for each car per month.
With these incredible records, the choice is still yours to make but I recommend that Cheki be one of the websites where you sell your car(s)
