The advertising screen is available via the Vehicles tab or from the home screen from the Advertising button. In this screen you can upload you vehicles to selected advertisers.
You must have filled in Usernames and Passwords for at least 1 advertiser to be able to access this screen. Refer to page 6 on how to setup advertising accounts.
Search – The search button will use what is in the search box to filter stock records.
Active Yard – drop this box down to filter vehicles based on the yard you want to view.
Sometimes photos don’t upload successfully due to loss of internet connection whilst uploading: use this process to resend photos.
There are many reasons why you might not want to send a vehicle to an advertising site, it’s not ready for sale yet, you simply don’t want to advertise a certain vehicle on a certain website etc. There are 2 ways to exclude a vehicle from regular listings.
One: This option will hide this vehicle entirely from your advertising screen.
Two: This option will allow you to choose which advertisers you exclude this vehicle from.
Every vehicle can print a brochure that you can provide to a potential buyer.
The most common reason for this is that the user account that you are logged into doesn’t have access to view all yards. Contact your administrator to obtain permissions.
If your website is hosted by another provider, we can send a .CSV file or create an iFrame page at an additional cost. Contact Jeal’s Sales team for pricing.
Every Advertiser uploads feeds at different times, normally feeds should be updated within 3 hours. If you have never uploaded a feed to a certain advertiser this process can be up to 24 hours. You must notify Jeal or the advertiser when a feed has been sent for the first time so it can be mapped correctly.
The username and password you have entered into EasyAd is incorrect. Try retyping in the details into the ‘Settings’ and ‘Advertising’, alternatively contact the advertiser and request the details to be sent through again.
Advertisers take can take some time to upload fresh feeds to the websites. Your website feed updates every 30 minutes. If the prices still haven’t updated within 3 hours it is best to contact the advertiser and provide them with the stock records so they can review.
When sending a feed through to a website you MUST always upload all stock that you want to be advertised. Never upload the ‘new’ vehicles that you have added to the system. The feed must contain all stock.
Depending on the rules for each advertiser you send to some require every vehicle to have images attached. For example if you send a feed containing 40 vehicles and on 30 of them have images, the other 10 vehicles will not be displayed on the advertising site. (Not all websites require images though)
