Kijiji Autos announces continued dealer support with 30% relief in June

TORONTO, ON - May 29, 2020 - Today, Kijiji Autos is announcing additional measures to help support its dealer community as the automotive sector continues to adapt to the effects of COVID-19.

Continued support
Kijiji Autos is waiving 30% of all Listing & Feature monthly subscription fees in June. This will be in addition to extending payments for March to 90 days and waiving 100% of all April and May monthly subscription fees. All dealer listings will remain live on the platform during this time, giving customers the opportunity to continue searching for their next vehicle.

“We’ve been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely. While we know that provinces are updating their economic approaches in real time, we recognize that there is still uncertainty across the country that impacts businesses within the automotive sector,” says Leanne Kripp, Head of Autos, Kijiji. “We are committed to partnering with dealerships on their success. We hope that through providing this extended relief we can help our dealer partners to remain focused on their businesses at this time.”
