Check if the upload is successful


Double-check for any missing vehicle details before pressing OK to confirm.


Verify a successful upload by going to Sales > Misc > Online Database Processing > Dealerbase/TradeMe.

 

For faster lookups, search the Rego in the Search Anywhere field.


Assuming everything is done correctly, the Status column should display Registered. If it shows Failed, check two things: 

  1. Did you add a photo?
  2. Review the previous steps (click on the vehicle name for details) on the DealerBase Page.
