The future of online auctions is here – How to get signed up to the Winfooz Marketplace

Nowadays everything you can think of can be bought at a click of a button. However, for decades, physical auctions have remained the same. You would think that at a time when you can buy everything from clothes to computers online, buying used cars would be more comfortable as well. That’s where we come in.

Used car dealers are used to buying and selling vehicles daily, up until now this has meant that dealers have had to send cars to physical auctions . This traditional method takes too long and costs too much. Our new online marketplace is set to change all of that. As of this Thursday, May 2nd we will begin hosting 2, 60minute auctions per week through our platform. We use innovative technology, such as our 360-degree imaging, coupled with our expert team of vehicle inspectors to guarantee you more insight at your fingertips than ever before. With hundreds of cars on our virtual lot, you are sure to get the best deal whether you are buying or selling a vehicle. Here we will show you just how simple it is to get set up on the Winfooz marketplace.

Step 1 – Where to find us

We are available on desktop, Android and iOS. Regardless of whether you are in the office, or out on the road, you will be able to get to the auction.

Step 2 – Register

After finding us, the next thing you will have to do is register. It’s a straightforward process, enter in your details and hit register. The information we will require is as follows:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Country
  • Mobile No.
  • Email
  • Password

Once you have done this, you will receive an email asking you to click the link to verify your account. Click the link, and you are into the Winfooz marketplace.

Step 3 – Setting up your dealership/dealerships

After you log in, you will not have any dealerships. To buy and sell vehicles on the marketplace, at least one will have to be created. Go to the dealerships and from here you will either be able to add a dealership or join an existing one. With Winfooz you can manage as many dealerships as you like, using the one login.

Setting up your dealership is easy. We have divided the form into two short sections with the first looking for the following details:

  • Sales Registration Number
  • Expiry Date
  • Uploaded image of both Sales Registration

This helps us verify your identity as a dealer. Once this is complete you can click next and move to the next page where we ask for:

  • Dealership registration number
  • Dealership name
  • Country and Province
  • Your role in the dealership

From here you will be directed to a final page where this information is gathered to create your dealership. At this point, you are almost ready to go. On this last page, you will be asked to fill in the final pieces of information that are legally required.

  • Legal company name
  • Dealership registration number
  • Dealership class
  • Dealership licence expiry
  • Tax number
  • Rin number (optional)
  • Carfax key (optional if only buying)
  • Verification documents (Company Registration, Master Business License, Dealership License, Tax Registration)

Now your dealership has been added. At this moment in time, your information has been sent to a Winfooz admin to verify your details. You will see that the status next to your dealership is “pending”. Verification can take up to 48hours, so if you go into the marketplace you will not be able to buy cars, but you will be able to see what’s on offer. It’s an excellent time to get your research done and to work your way through the platform before the auction.

Step 4 – Joining a dealership

Once your account has been verified, you will be able to see the highlighted buttons alongside each vehicle in the marketplace; this says that you are ready to go and purchase. At any time you can go into your dealerships page to add other establishments.

You can also join a dealership that is already on our network. To do this, you need to click “Add Dealership” and enter the Dealership registration number. Our system will then find the dealership, and all you need to do is select your role in the company and wait for the Winfooz admin to verify the account.
