Revenue will be generated from profits of the sales of cars made on the website. These cars will be bought at a price less than the listed selling prices, and thus profit is attained from every single sale. Revenue will also come from commissions. As said before, the website lists both new and used cars. Therefore, by listing cars whose owners are willing to sell them off, each sale of such cars will lead to a direct commission. The commission rate will be a percentage of the selling price of the car as agreed with the owner of the vehicle. This website will seek to attract customers using discounts, terms of payment and after sale services. Occasionally, cars will be sold at discounted prices, lower than sellers thus attracting customers.
