There are several ways for dealers, auctioneers, and traders to post equipment listings on PlantAndEquipment.com. Please see below the 5 data sharing methods for our online marketplace.
1. Website Scraping
Scraping a website involves automated data fetching and extracting. We crawl your website and sync it with PlantAndEquipment.com to fetch regular updates on your listings; this enables our clients to have control over managing their listings on PlantAndEquipment.com from their website.
2. Data Sharing Platforms
Hexon, Autodo, and Autoline's Export Dashboard are connected with PlantAndEquipment.com. These data-sharing platforms allow clients to share their ad listings on PlantAndEquipment.com with a click of a button. With such platforms, you get a dashboard and have complete control over managing your listings.
3. XML Feed
XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is a standardised way of structuring data. PlantAndEquipment.com supports data transfers through XML. You can get your listings from your website or any other platform in an XML format and easily transfer them to PlantAndEquipment.com.
4. CSV Upload
A CSV is a comma-separated values file, which allows data to be saved in a tabular format. You can share your listings in a CSV file to bulk upload on PlantandEquipment.com. For the correct CSV format, please request it from your Account Manager.
5. Manual Upload
PlantAndEquipment.com has a backend dashboard that lets you upload, edit and manage your listings yourself. Just upload the pictures/videos, fill in the essential information such as Brand, Model, Year, Category, and click save. Your listing will go live automatically if all information is filled correctly.
