  • Q: What if I don't know my DealerCenter ID?
    A: Your Carzing Representative can provide you with this value during the integration process.
  • Q: Can I change the size of the widget?
    A: If you choose our Modern Medium theme, it's responsive in width up to 300px at maximum and down to 150px at minimum. The Modern Small theme has a static height and width, so it cannot be resized.
  • Q: What is the maximum number of characters I can use for the button text?
    A: To accommodate the maximum (300px) size of the Modern Medium theme, we offer a limit of 50 characters. Expect text to be truncated for sizes smaller than 300px.
  • Q: How do I populate the price, vin, and primary image url values?
    A: Depending on your provider, these values should ideally be populated programmatically per vehicle. For the convenience of our DealerCenter customers, these values are pre-populated for our Dealer Websites product.
  • Q: What should I do if the widget looks distorted?
    A: If you encounter any strange sizing or distortion issues with the widget, there may be a case of style inheritance from existing CSS. The Carzing team is happy to advise if this happens to you. Otherwise, consider that the widget is rendered directly on your site. Try working your way up through parent elements until you find something setting an inherited static height, width, padding, or margins.
  • Q: All of my widgets are showing turned down or no results. What's wrong?
    A: The best course of action in these cases is to contact your Carzing Representative. However, you may also check to make sure that your inventory feed has been transferred to us successfully. Be advised that there may be a short delay while we sync your inventory.
  • Q: I don't like the payment results I'm seeing. Is there anything I can do to customize the results?
    A: We fully support the implementation of any lender rate table or custom rate table you'd like to use. Contact your Carzing representative for assistance in getting this set up.
  • Use the Widget Positioning options to conveniently center or float the widget.
    These are simple classes that are added automatically to the markup via the code generator above. This way, you don't have to rely on custom css or in-line styles to wrestle with the positioning of the widget. Use the "none" option to remove any such positioning if you'd still like to apply your own styles for this purpose.
  • Responsiveness is built into the widget, but still have size requirements
    The widgets will automatically resize in width until they hit certain minimum and maximum sizes. The heights also have a minimum size requirement. These requirements vary depending on the theme you've chosen. After considering this, drop the HTML markup into a parent element that is sized for your site's own size requirements.
  • The display of Teaser Rate values is optional
    Many dealers only want to show customers numbers after they've submitted their prequalification, and we offer this as a configurable option with the Carzing widgets. Simply set the "Show Calculator for Teaser Rates" option to "no" in the code generator above.

Currently Supported Feeds

Many DMS providers have already been integrated with the Carzing experience. If you currently use one of them, it should be a snap to set up.

These are the providers currently supported:

  • DealerCenter
  • CarsForSale
  • DealerCarSearch
  • Chroma
  • PRcoPower
  • Dealer Socket / Fire
  • Motorcar Marketing
  • Dealer Front- Coming Soon
  • Auto Manager - Coming Soon

Q: What if my DMS isn't listed here?
A: No problem. The Carzing team is happy to work with any DMS to set up your inventory feed.
Data File Format

We support the widely accepted standard HomeNet feed format. The only restriction we add on top of this is the file naming convention (DCID_MMDDYYYY.csv).

For example, if your DCID was 123456, you would use this file format if transmitting on 11/28/2016: 123456_11282016.csv

Q: What if I don't use DealerCenter DMS?
A: If you are not currently a DealerCenter customer with a DCID, the Carzing team will provide you with the number to use.
Data Transfer
Feeds may be transmitted to us over SFTP. We will provide you with unique credentials upon implementation.
