eBay Motors Launches New Tools To Simplify Online Auto Parts Shopping

eBay has announced its latest auto feature, Shop by Diagram, which lets shoppers use interactive schematics to determine which parts are necessary and then quickly makes the exact items they need available for purchase.

Whether you’re a DIYer tackling a simple car repair or a serious gearhead with a difficult project, eBay Motors has are two new ways to shop for parts and accessories. eBay has announced its latest auto feature, Shop by Diagram, which lets shoppers use interactive schematics to determine which parts are necessary, and then quickly making the exact items they need available for purchase. A newly enhanced My Garage experience, also launched recently, allows buyers to shop a personalized “virtual garage” of parts and accessories tailored specifically to their vehicle.

Buying the wrong part or not having all the right parts to complete a repair is a common headache for both auto enthusiasts and professional mechanics. According to eBay Motors’ Automotive DIY study, nearly half of consumers (49 percent) have mistakenly purchased a part either online or in store that was incompatible with their vehicle. In addition, more than 70 percent have started a car repair before realizing they didn’t have all the right parts to finish the job. To address this, eBay has built algorithms that connect its catalog of more than 80 million parts and accessories to its unique visual diagrams and fitment data.

“More than half of all U.S. adults have tackled some sort of auto repair by themselves, and not knowing exactly which part they need can be one of the biggest obstacles to online parts shopping,” said Jay Hanson, chief operating officer and vice president of eBay Americas. “The new features we’re rolling out today eliminate the guesswork by helping people find and buy the specific part they need – even if they don’t know exactly what it is.”

Shop by Diagram on eBay

eBay’s Shop by Diagram makes it easy to find any auto part – even if a shopper doesn’t know the part’s name or part number – by making your car’s schematic diagrams interactive. For the first time, professional and amateur mechanics can use visual diagrams to shop for the exact part needed for a project. eBay’s proprietary technology combs through millions of listed parts that match the visual diagram for each vehicle, and eBay’s fitment technology guarantees compatibility with the year, make and model of the vehicle selected by the shopper.

Enhanced My Garage Experience

The updated My Garage experience offers a custom storefront for every auto shopper. By saving the details of their cars, trucks and motorcycles including year, make, model, trim level and engine type to the “My Garage” destination, shoppers get streamlined access to the parts specific to their vehicle. When a shopper searches for any item, eBay will only show items that fit the vehicles in their virtual garage.

Despite a tough commercial tire market in 2023 due to overstock and the effects of a rubber-banding supply chain, some tire manufacturers are expressing a cautious optimism for stabilization and gradual recovery through the rest of 2024 and into 2025.

"The economy is not showing signs that it’s going to slow down, but I don’t think the situation’s going to improve dramatically by the end of this year. It’s more likely next year," said Pierluigi Cumo, Vice President of B2B products, at Michelin North America. "We can see the light because the beginning of 2023 was very bad. I think now we’ve found the bottom, and I don’t think we’re going to get much further from the bottom in 2024."
