Today I was browsing Twitter to see that Wp1stop has released a wordpress car dealership inventory plugin. This plugin makes easy use of wordpress custom fields to allow users to easily enter the vehicle data directly within a post. Having the ability for car dealers to easily add their vehicle descriptions within wordpress streamlines the process of entering vehicle data.
In the above screenshot you can see all of the fields built right into the post edit feature of wordpress. This is a welcome step forward for the auto dealer industry. Most wordpress auto dealership websites have had to have a programmer customize it for them. The ability is now at everyone’s fingertips to easily manage car dealership easily from within wordpress. Some great uses right off the top of my head is for cleaning companies, finance companies, repossession companies, and people like myself. I plan on using this plugin to showcase the different auto detailing packages that my clients received along with a picture of the finished vehicle. This can be used for an infinite amount of applications.
The car dealer plugin is easily inserted into any post by using the shortag [ cardealer ]. By inserting this shortcode into your post/page wordpress automatically knows to insert the code that the plugin produces. Wp1stop could not have made this any easier.
The release of this wordpress plugin for car dealerships is a welcome step in the right direction. Until now there have not been many plugins created for auto dealerships. Some features we would like to see in the future are an integrated inventory system. Maybe adding a panel in the backend that would show your current stats such as # of makes, # of models and how many of each category. Right now the plugin is simple, yet powerful and effective. The best part about it is it’s free. I am sure as features are added to the auto dealer plug so will price.
There are many different applications that this plugin can be modified to fit. Not only care dealerships can benefit from this plugin. By changing the names of the custom fields it inserts a wide variety of functions can be performed. The plugin is free and available for download directly from Wp1stop.
