Summary

This article explains which websites are populated by Catalyst FindIt, and what requirements are necessary to have your units upload to the website.

More Information

Units: Unit is a general term used to cover all types of vehicle and machinery, including items such as motorcycles, scooters, cars, trucks, vans, caravans, motorhomes, boats, tractors, ATVs, agricultural equipment, wholegoods and construction equipment.

For your Used Units to appear on Visordown, MotorcycleSuperMarket and Auto Trader websites, your units will need at least the following information filled in :

  • Manufacturer
  • Description
  • Engine Size
  • Colour
  • Reg. Date
  • Mileage
  • Price
  • Used only
Your units MUST have the Catalyst FindIt tick, and the tick for the third party website, enabled in the Web Publishing Tab on the unit record.
Adding Images to your unit stock not only lets the buyer see your unit at a glance but it will increase the likely chance of having someone contact you about the unit - would you buy without seeing the unit? Neither will your customers.
