The benefits of Edmunds Online
Peace of mind for vehicle Sellers
The Buyer sends the agreed upon payment to Edmunds Online. After verifying funds, we alert the Seller to send the vehicle to the Buyer.
Protected from fraudulent checks and money order scams, the Seller has peace of mind knowing funds are behind the Edmunds Online's shield.
Confidence for vehicle Buyers
We do not release the money to the Seller until the vehicle has been received and accepted by the Buyer.
This provides online car buyers the opportunity to inspect the vehicle before sellers are paid.
