  • PRE-SELL Listing
What does a Pre-Sell item mean and why?
Normally items that we advertise are readily available and in stock but there are instances where product is due in shortly or has to be custom made like upholstery where stocking every color for every make, model, and body style is just not possible or economically wise to do.

eBay along with the Federal Trade Commission have rules & regulations in place when it comes to customer orders from sellers by mail, telephone, fax, or on the Internet. It is not our purpose to sell items, collect money and have you wait forever for your product. We deal with almost a hundred different vendors with thousands of various parts which is a huge task to monitor itself, so pre-selling items is one way for us to manage it.

Why advertise it if we don't physically have it?

Just because we physically don't have something in our hands doesn't mean that it is not readily available in stock with the manufacturer or our supplier. Again, to stock everything for every car is just not practical. This doesn't mean that it is not available as in most instances it is in stock with the manufacturer/supplier for shipment directly to you as a "drop ship". Drop ships are more common place then most realize and a majority of the sellers out there use this method as a standard business practice.

In addition, like with interior upholstery, the most popular options, colors or styles are in stock and ready to ship. Less popular items are still available but are produced on demand to fill the order.

Also, eBay has become an international shopping ground that most people are familiar with because it gives the buyer a free place to compare product & prices and not feel trapped into ones website or catalog. If we don't advertise the variety of products that are available then one may not be aware of its existence or availability.
