Hot Sellers Reports
Car-Part Gold offers accurate information about the parts your customers are trying to find

Did you know that all Car-Part Gold subscribers are eligible to access Hot Sellers Reports at no extra charge? Hot Sellers Reports allow you to view information about what your customers look for in their searches and on your website. If you are a Car-Part Gold subscriber and you are not using your Hot Sellers Reports, you are missing out on a great way to understand your customers and your selling potential.

Hot Sellers Reports, which are based on interchange numbers, give you information about the search activity on the Car-Part marketplace, your website, and most importantly, your F-Key searches. Your F-Key searches, or Trading Partners searches, are the parts your salesmen look up when you do not have the part in your own inventory. By studying this Hot Sellers Report, you can see which parts are looked up most often and which parts your customers want to buy from you that you have been unable to provide. By studying these searches, you can buy smarter and better fill your customers’ needs.

Other available reports inform you of the Hot Sellers from’s main search, the Hot Sellers in your region, and the Hot Sellers on your personal website. In each category, the Top 100 Models Report will show you the 100 most commonly searched models. You will see the number of searches made for each model, and what percentage of the total searches were for that model. You can also see the top 30 part searches for this model, along with the number of searches and appropriate percentage for each part type for that model. The Top 52 Parts Report shows the most popular parts and interchange numbers, and helps to make sure you are inventorying the parts people are buying.

If you already have Car-Part Gold or Website Advantage and would like to learn more about how to access your reports, please contact your Car-Part support representative. If you do not have Car-Part Gold and would like information on how to subscribe to this service, please contact your salesperson. Statistics tracking for your business only begins once you have signed up for Car-Part Gold.
