Dealers Role In Used Car Buying And Selling

Have you ever wondered why do you see lots of cars advertised in Online Used Cars Portals from dealers than individuals? Only a few websites have the right proportion of cars from individuals and dealers. The reason behind is, these portals are charging the seller for a fee to list the cars with their system. Most of the individuals are not interested in paying money for the portals listing fee, as they afraid of wasting the money if the car is not sold. However the dealers are doing this as a business, and also for dealers there are attractive offers for selling in bulk.

What are the commissions a typical dealer can get?
