Dealer Portal - How to Add Used In-Stock Boat Listing

Modified on Wed, 18 Jan 2023 at 05:10 PM

The portal will let you add and edit the list of all used in-stock boats available.

 


The screenshot seen above is the dealer portal dashboard that appears when you first log in. To add a used in-stock boat listing, click the “Manage” button on the “In-Stock Boat Listings” tile. This will proceed to the Used Boat Listings page. 



Scroll down to locate the Used Boat Listings section to add, edit, delete, and search existing listings of used in-stock boats. To add a used boat listing, just click the "Add Used Boat Listing" button on the upper right section, to proceed to the Used Boat Form.



Just as you would when adding a new boat listing, fill out each field on the form.


Note: Bear in mind that when you’re using the “Make” field, some boat brands have existing data of their models that are available on the site. As you enter the model name, the system will look up and display a list of existing models on the website. You can select a model from the list. A select button will appear beside the “Name” field. Click the “Select” button for the system to automatically pre-fill all the fields in the form e.g., boat specifications.  However, not all brands from the “Make” have this feature. When this happens, manually input the name of the boat mode and the rest of the fields in the form. 



Review the boat’s specifications and engine specifications to make sure they have the right details. You can update or edit any of the fields e.g., steering type, brand, if you wish to do so.



In the pricing section, provide details of the boat's Regular Price, Price Label, and Special Price. Take note that the “Special Price” field will activate if you clicked Yes on the "Is this on special?" option in the Listing Details section. 


For the "Enable Purchase Through Your Website" option, you have the option to decide whether you want your clients to purchase on the website or not. However, we recommended that you should not let clients purchase a boat on the website so refrain from enabling this option.

Enter the boat's stock number, registration number, expiration date, and warranty status in the Details section. Fields left as "N/A" will not be displayed on the website except for the stock number. 


Note: If you push the boat listing on the Boatsales website, make sure to input the price field since the site will not allow the listing to be $0. Don’t forget to also include the stock number of the boat as well.



In the “Main Listing Image” option, the image you have chosen will be the main highlight image that will be visible in the in-stock new boats listing.


If you wish to include a Youtube clip that highlights the boat model, paste the video link into the “Youtube Video Link” field. 


To upload images to the gallery, you can either drag and drop them or choose the Browse option. You can upload a maximum of 15 images. Once the images are uploaded, you can easily click and drag the images to re-order them.



On the “Listing Information” subsection, you can add and edit the content for the Details, Specifications, and Features & Options sections of the boat. Bear in mind that the contents on these fields can be prefilled by the portal when you select an existing used boat model from the Listings Details section.



If you wish to list your boats in third-party listings sites, there is an option that will allow you to list your boat on Boatsales.com. Choose the “Yes” button to allow this. Click the “Save Draft” button to save all your changes. To finish the entire process, click the “Complete & Submit” button. Once that is done, the boat listings will be automatically posted on the website.
