eBay Motors Launches Motorcycle Parts Compatibility. eBay is launching parts compatibility in select eBay Motors Motorcycle Parts & Accessories categories this month. With the Parts Compatibility feature, sellers can create one listing describing a single part and add a complete list of compatible vehicles. Listing with parts compatibility also helps get your relevant items in front of buyers via search – both on eBay and via off-site search engines like Google and Yahoo. It may save you both time and money on insertion fees. Parts Compatibility functionality is already available in two motorcycle categories: Motorcycle Parts – Exhaust and Motorcycle Parts – Body & Frame – Seats
