Car buyer trust

We constantly improve our platform to help buyers feel confident. The more trust buyers have in you, the more likely they are to buy your vehicles. So, more trust means more sales for you. Below are just a few of the ways we’re helping you build car buyers’ trust.

Search changes

Improved sort order Quicker buying journeys More leads for you

Our new relevance-based search saves your potential customers time by showing the most relevant adverts to them. Here’s what it means for you:

  • Buyers can find the right car, at the right price as adverts are sorted by quality rather than being the cheapest.
  • We’ve shifted away from ‘lowest priced first’, so you can get ahead by focusing on the quality of your adverts.
  • These changes have increased the number of leads delivered to retailers, as customers can more quickly find the right cars for them.
