Introducing Clayton Stanfield, Senior Manager of Dealer Training at eBay Motors

Dealers  /   /  By Clayton Stansfield

Greetings! My name is Clayton Stanfield and I am the Senior Manager of Dealer Training at eBay Motors.  I have been in the car business for twelve years and at eBay for five years. I currently oversee all training and industry outreach programs for eBay Motors. This includes organizing and speaking at Industry events, running eBay Motors live training events and management of eBay Motors new Online University.  Prior to my time here at eBay Motors, I worked for five years as a consultant in the auto industry building and training Internet Departments and Business Development Centers.

Clayton StanfieldIt was during my college years that I first entered the industry selling cars for a dealership in Sacramento, California.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and graduated with my MBA from Pepperdine University in August 2011.

I am lucky enough to be one of those guys who loves his job.  I have been a seller on eBay for over ten years and was buying and selling vehicles on the site long before I started working at eBay Motors.  This year alone I have bought two vehicles on eBay Motors, a 2002 Jeep Sahara and a 2003 Ford F150.  Overall I have bought eight vehicles on eBay Motors and sold close to thirty, not counting the countless numbers I have helped friends and dealers sell.

I literally started on eBay helping my mother sell Beanie Babies. “They are going to make us rich”, she said.  I never did get rich selling these for my mom, but what I did find was a marketplace that was more vibrant, with incredible inventory and most important to me, more fun, than any other I had experienced.  All these years later I still enjoy eBay for the same reasons, but instead of selling Beanie Babies on my Compaq Presario, I am selling a GMC Yukon and a Bayliner Capri ski boat using my iPad

    In your vehicle listings under Hyundai please add Veloster to the models for Hyundai. You had it there and now it disappeared

      For approximately 3 monthes there is a problem with lowering the reserve of our listings. Using Dealer Hub we keep getting a failure notice everytime we try. We then have to call Ebay Motors support. They tell us that they have turned in a trouble ticket to your IT team numerous times and that they cannot fix the problem!? Please advise.

    I am looking into this. I am told they have fixed a part of this but are still working on one more piece. They are actively working on it. I hope to have an ETA on full repair of functionality in a day or two. I will contact you as soon as I get a firm date.

    Thank you
