Collector Part Exchange (CPX) is changing the way the collector car world works. Our aim is to make it easier for both the buyers and sellers to find the right parts quickly.
We are a marketplace where sellers of parts can list their items for sale. There are no up-front costs to getting started. Buyers can easily find what they are after and complete the transaction quickly. Once completed, CPX processes the credit card and can make shipping easy and trackable.
CPX wants to offer an outstanding experience for buyers and sellers whether you’re a business or a DIY enthusiast. However you fit into the collector car world, we will make your experience better.
Bringing the collector car community together, one part at a time.

You have a couple options:
Then go ahead and set up your Garage.
It starts by clicking “Buy” but it doesn’t end there. If you’ve used the system before, your payment and address will already be there.
CPX is here to help. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your concerns with us. We will help resolve the issue to everyone’s satisfaction. We want you to focus on your car, not on sorting out problems that may arise.
Think of it like a concierge to help you find the parts you need. If you can’t find something, or don’t know where to start, then try Part Ping™! Complete the form and hit the “Ping” button. The request will be shared with suppliers that are knowledgeable about the car you are working on. It will also be posted where owners of the same vehicle can see it and provide advice. You will receive helpful responses with parts that are available, other parts that would work, or even a contact for someone who can refurbish the part you have. Give it a try!
A Garage is where you can store information about the vehicles you own or are interested in. If you are a restoration or repair shop you can store your fleet of client vehicles. You can even give them nicknames, which could be customer names for professional service providers.
Start by going in and select the year, make, model, sub-model, trim and engine (where applicable). Having a Garage set up will help you:
Set up an Account, open your store, and sell your parts.
First, create an Account then open up your Dashboard under Account Settings to connect a bank account to our secure payment system so that you can receive your funds quickly. Be ready with key information such as your bank routing and account number as well as your tax ID number.
Second, create a store by picking a store name, then you can add your location, logo and description, if desired.
Last, list your parts. With the set-up work done, now it’s time to list a part. On your Dashboard, select Inventory and then Add Product button. It is a quick three-step process:
Congratulations, you are ready to sell your part or parts!
Come on board! We provide ‘white glove’ treatment and can help you enter your parts at no cost to you. This is particularly helpful for those with a substantial inventory. If you have an existing inventory management system, we can also connect it so you only have to manage parts in one place.

Collector Part Exchange was designed to make procuring and tracking parts lists as easy as possible.
Do you provide a service that directly relates to collector car parts, such as repairing radios for Model Ts, refurbishing an original speedometer, or rebuilding a rear-end (aka a differential), then we can help. Services like these will appear when someone is searching for that category of part for the vehicles that you service. These services can often be invaluable for maintaining the originality of a vehicle.
To list a service, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you set it up.
Commissions are paid only when an item is sold. There are no up-front costs to list a part. The seller is charged a reasonable commission which is subtracted from the sale price when the funds are transferred to the seller’s account. The commission is lower than any other marketplace and we have seen and there is a cap on total fees.
We want our pricing to support sellers by being simple and transparent.
When you create an account you are automatically part of the CPX community. Welcome! The most visible way to engage the community is by asking a question regarding a specific car model on which you need advice, or conversely replying to a request from another owner. This is a great way to meet other owners and either share or benefit from the wisdom of others. Also, if someone issues a Part Ping for a part for a car in your Garage, you’ll receive a notification. If you can assist, then by all means reply.
This helps build the fabric of trust in CPX. Sharing positive experiences will benefit sellers and encourage others to patronize them. If a purchase could be better, the feedback will help the seller address any issues to avoid them in the future. Finally, if a seller is behaving poorly, this will help us address them swiftly to ensure that CPX continues to provide a positive experience going forward.
CPX’s commission structure is designed to be transparent, but more importantly we want it to be the lowest option out there. Our fees structure is friendly to parts sellers to help support their businesses by having them keep more for themselves.
Our pricing is about as simple as it gets: a 4.85% commission on the final sale price. We also pass through the credit card processing costs which are 3.15% of the sale price and a fee of $0.60 per transaction. It nets out to 8.0% plus $0.60. By comparison, eBay is in a best-case scenario 12.9% plus $0.65.
CPX has no other fees to use the system. We do not "nickel and dime" buyers or sellers like other marketplaces which even charge you to have a bold headline!
For shipping, we use a service which handles providing options for shipping and then can generate shipping labels. The costs for shipping are passed through, but the credit card processing fee does apply. We do not mark up the shipping costs.
We believe this is how it should be done, but it’s not how most marketplaces work. Compared to eBay, a seller will keep approximately 5% more of the final sale price when selling on CPX. That makes a big difference on your bottom line.
