Bulk upload Car Listings for Auto Dealers

Bulk upload service provides car dealers and dealerships with free bulk upload of car listings to GVANGA.
You provide us with XML file containing your current vehicle offers and your ads will be imported to GVANGA and updated on a daily basis. As an extra, we add manufacturer specs for each of advertised car for free. 
To start using our automatic bulk listing service please sign up as a new user on GVANGA and submit a link to your XML file in My Account area.

Steps for connection to the service:

Step 1: Create an XML file (feed) - a structured, updated data file on your site. The supported format is specified below. 

Step 2: Registration on Gvanga.com. To upload the XML feed, you need to be a registered user of our site. Please note that the XML Feed Import service is only available for companies.

Step 3: Submit a URL of the XML feed. You can fill out the feedback form below or send a link to your XML feed from the “My Account” page under “XML Feeds”.

After you add your XML feed, it will be verified and checked by our moderators.
When approved, the data from your XML feed will be automatically uploaded and updated on our website once per day. In “My Account” page under “Ads from XML file” tab, you can manage the imported ads.

 

Feed Requirements
