Frequently asked

General

What are the main differences?

Simply put,

White label is a self-branded platform for dealers who want to operate and promote their auction sales to their own audience, typically as an add-on to their traditional sales channels.

Motanexus is a national marketplace for dealers who want to optimise their stock turn and minimise their average "days in stock", sell to both Public and trade buyers, source fresh retail stock from Trade sellers, underwrite and offer part exchange vehicles to a trusted trade network.

Can I add images to my listings?

Yes!

Upload images from your own storage or directly from your mobile device. There is no limit to the amount of images to support each vehicle listed. Include service history, documents, keys etc.

How do I set reserve prices?

Through your platform administration dashboard, you can easily set reserve prices, opening bid value, add estimated min/max as a bidders guide, and even set bespoke bidding increments for specific listings.

- Your platform will utilise parameters such as bidding increments.

How user-friendly are these platforms?

Both bidders and platform users benefit from our clean and fresh design. Bidders are offered a very simple registration process and have access to their own history and account management area. Dealers can easily upload and manage listings, their dealership settings and more.

What kind of support and training is provided?

Our dedicated team is available weekdays and on hand to provide help on the phone and online tp support all platform user and bidder inquiries.

How secure are these auction platforms?

Paddlup platforms are hosted on AWS servers. User data is secure behind an integral firewall and payment details are never stored. We integrate with third parties for subscription and payment gateway management.

Can the platform integrate with my existing systems?

System integrations are possible through our own API

How does the platform handle marketing and promotion?

Templated notifications are built in so bidders are kept updated on listings they are watching or bidding. Social sharing for buyers is also built-in. A seamless integration with Google ad platform ensures that listings are promoted to the correct demographic audience.

What is the scalability of the platform?

There is no maximum amount of listings, dealers can host as many vehicles for auction as they like. Pricing is not a one-size-fits-all, so you only pay for what you need.

How many admin users can I have?

As many as you like, there is no charge for additional administrators either. We recommend you have at least 2 members of your team with access to your platform.

How does the platform prevent fraud and ensure fair bidding?

As part of bidder registration, identity and fraud is checked using an integrated payment gateway (its free to register we just use the card details). if a registration fails then the bidder is not able to proceed.

Can I have both?

Yes you can!

There are many user cases where a white label dealer would like to access trade buyers and sellers, underwrite and sell part exchange vehicles and also the opportunity to source stock from public sellers with Motanexus's built-in "sell my car" feature.

White label

Who is white label for?

White label is a self-branded platform for dealers who want to operate and promote their auction sales to their own audience, typically as an add-on to their traditional sales channels. Ideal for dealers who:

Want their own on-line auction.

Want to extend their brand with an additional sales channel.

Have excess stock commitments.

Use traditional auctions to dispose of stock.

Want to maximize profits.

Need to improve stock turn.

Need to get online quickly

Do not have thousands of £'s to build a new platform

How will my platform be branded?

Your company brand colours and logo are embedded in the platform, your company details including contact numbers and social media channels are incorporated.

You can choose whatever URL you like, we recommend using a subdomain, auction.[mydealer].co.uk for example, it entirely up to you. We look after all of this as part of your set-up by the way, all you need to do is supply your asset, let us know when URL you'd like and we do the rest!

How do I add stock?

Stock can be either added manually or via a bulk uploader. Manual entries are super quick to list with our vehicle data look-up tool. Each listing has its own management area, you can add write-ups, feature and spec details in addition to setting auction parameters and multiple images.

How do I manage my auctions?

Your admin panel enables you to make as many edits and updates to any listings you create.

Can I trade with other dealerships?

White label is a platform for your dealership to sell to external buyers. You can choose to sell "trade" vehicles, however anyone registered can bid, so you will need to ensure that trade listings are specifically marked as such. For dealers who want to sell to both the public and trade, we recommend Autonexus, with its national coverage for trade "reach".

My dealership is not in the UK

White label is a cloud-hosted platform and is available to dealerships worldwide. It's in-built bidder/buyer registration feature incorporates validity checks through a third-party gateway, contact us, and we'll be delighted to chat through your requirements.

There is a fixed buyer fee built into every listing, this is paid directly to PaddlUp when the hammer goes down, at the end of every auction. At just £198 inc VAT, regardless of the hammer price, the charge is the lowest in the market.

White label dealers can add a margin for additional sales revenue from their auction vehicles, collected at the end of the auction and transferred from PaddlUp, so no need far additional payment gateways or admin!

How long before my platform is ready?

Typically your white label platform will be live in 7 days, however, it may be quicker, this really depends on how soon your branding asset is available and your team completes their QA and training.

Monthly subscriptions from just £99.
