Partsforu.com Line Item Listing using Tier Level Pricing, By the Line, By The Month.
Reading the Pricing Tier’s
The tier’s are stair stepped and each level is billed quarterly (Month X 3) at the top step of each tier’s level.
Meaning that a dealers list of 85 line items in Tier Three is billed at the minimum of 150 line items, or $2.49 monthly, $7.47 for three months. Yes, might as well have 150 items in Tier Three. That’s kind of the point.
All tier levels are calculated this way based on solid factors. The time and energy to parse or scrub a list of 500 line items is pretty much the same as doing 60. There’s the daily maintenance to add, remove, upload, correct and remove line items regularly. This Tier Level listing pricing is helpful in encouraging to strive for the listing of all your NOS parts that have had “No Sale in 12 or more months” and at least the maximum number in each tier. We have found that a three franchise dealer in business for just under 10 years, can have well in excess of 2500 – 5500 items on their “509 Obsolete items by Vendor, ALL Vendors” ( Lightspeed) report.
CAUTION: DO NOT HOLD BACK ITEMS FROM YOUR SUBMITTED LIST TO TRY AND CONTROL THE NUMBER you submit.
Your won’t be charged for all you submit, just what’s agreed to after we do the work and return the suggested list to you. Before you agree to anything you’ll know exactly what will be listed and what you’ll be billed. We DO NOT automatically Up Load the entire list! We do not attempt deception or surprises. We will scrub your entire list and send back to you what we suggest. You take it from there! and let us help with what’s most important to you.
Obviously, Tier pricing was not adopted for money. Seriously, $0.0058¢ or about a 1/4th of a penny, it’s not a lot of money. It does help pay for some updates and maintenance but comes nowhere near covering the cost of new technology, new plugins as well as the cost of hosting, bandwidth and processing power, not to mention marketing of the site itself, all in which YOU benefit. Regards to processing power, admittedly the site is Hosted on GoDaddy servers and is slow right now, I’ll be moving to a single virtual server on Amazon Web Services as soon as possible. Huge difference for a little money!
So!. . We’ll scrub the list you submit for you and submit it back to you with recommendations. Then YOU decide your course and your pricing. We can easily automate some of this process faster in our software.
Example, We know you probably don’t have those 09L00-YXB-10TDR Red Tie Downs from Honda or the ACC-0SS58-40-30 Blue Tie downs from Yamaha. You sold those under another part number probably aftermarket. So now your inventory is off. We can help find those instances and get your inventory in better shape as well as have an affordable way to try and turn your NOS into cash and get you paid.
The base commission structure is set to a 60/40 split between your obsolete parts and Partsforu.com. There is some flexibility in certain circumstances to be determined between each vendor and Partsforu.com. Several have said they’d be pretty happy to recover 60% of their NOS parts, that have on the average, been on the shelf over 33 months, or longer. That is how the 60 dealer/ 40 Partsforu.com split was derived. Most of the time the buyer would pay shipping but that detail can change for each purchase, for each vendor. We foresee that there could be instances when the shipping cost’s could be shared three ways or even totally paid! A dominant number of items will easily ship USPS and the nature of this market is that overnight is rarely ever necessary. Ask yourself again, ” How long has it been sitting there?”

Seems confusing at first but remember we’re going to parse your list and send it back to you with recommendations and what the monthly listing would be.
Variance’s for your final parts list will fall wherever it will based on the number of parts in it, that’s the explanation for so many tiers or pricing levels.
