Complete the Sale: Finalize Payment, Shipping, and Title Transfer

Receive Payment

You should have already established your payment terms in your eBay Motors listing. Sellers are encouraged to accept deposits via PayPal and the balance of the payment via the Financing Center. However, sellers are welcome to accept or deny any type of payment, as long as those terms are clearly explained in the listing.

Complete the Sale: Arrange Pickup / Shipping

You should have already established your pickup and/or shipping terms in your eBay Motors listing. Most buyers opt to pick up the vehicle in person; however, if shipping services are required for your transaction, please make sure the shipping company that you and the buyer agree to use is fully bonded and insured.
eBay Motors recommends a number of dependable shipping companies that are listed in the Shipping Center. But if you have a prior relationship with a trustworthy shipping company, you might want to offer to help arrange for shipping.

Complete the Sale: Transfer Title

You will need to transfer the title of the vehicle to the new owner. Each state has slightly different rules on how the title transfer should be completed. We recommend that you visit your state's Department of Motor Vehicles to review detailed information about transferring titles to the new owner.
