Shipping Rules
PSS manages shipping rules for OEM data feeds.  Go to PSS Settings > Shipping Rules.  It is price banded.  We recommend free shipping on anything above $50-$60.  You may add up to 5 price bands.

Creating Listings
Once you complete the Inventory Rules and Shipping Rules you will want to have the listings created.  With the OEM feeds PSS will be creating the listings in bulk on your behalf.  Notify your account manager when you have completed the above and he will trigger development to begin creating listings.  We typically create about 5,000 per day for you.

***Frequently Asked Questions***

How can I adjust pricing?

You cannot.  Part of the agreement with these OEMs is that the pricing will remain fixed.

Why do I have the same part listed multiple times?

Each part is listed multiple times because it might reference a different application or be used on one application more than once. We have restrictions with how we are able to list OEM products due to parameters given by eBay. While we are aware that it is not ideal, we will continue to use this structure for at least the next 90 days.

If each part is listed more than once, and the image/diagram refers to a different section of a different application, will you be pushing fitment so buyers know what the diagram is for?

Fitment will have pushed to OEM listings by 12/15

Why are there no Images/diagrams on some listings?

Once listed, we go through and retrieve them 1-by-1. We do not push them over with original listing. The images seem to be populating 5-7 days after the listing creates.

Can you please explain the reference number?

The first 3 digits of the reference number pertains to the part or assembly that is referenced in the diagram. The middle part of the reference string pertains to our database and should be considered irrelevant for the time being.

Why is the name/title of the part in the subtitle and not in the listing title?

Being cautious of character lengths and avoiding duplicate violations.  We are going to be attempting to include Year and Model in the titles in the future.

Is it safe to assume that the first three digits of the reference number are always going to be telling the buyer what to reference in the diagram?

Yes.
