Direct orders from Mopar coming (clarified)

by David Zatz on

Beginning next month, consumers may log on to the Mopar eStore at www.mopar.com and purchase any of the more than 100,000 parts and accessories available for a variety of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Plymouth vehicles.  Mopar will ship parts anywhere in the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii.

Saw the blurb regarding MOPAR direct shipping parts to the customer,
we hadn’t heard about it so we did some digging. Looks like it will be
similar to MOPAR’S Dealer 2 Dealer referral system.  D2D, as we call it
is used by MOPAR to; One fill orders of Back Ordered parts by purchasing
them from Dealers that have signed up a paid for the D2D service. It is
also a good way to utilize  obsolete inventory that otherwise might have
been thrown away and written off. From what we found out so far is;
Customer looks up and orders part from MOPAR website, MOPAR in turn
finds a dealer with stock of that given part number. The Dealer then
sells the part to MOPAR and ships it to the customer, MOPAR also pays
for freight too. With the D2D program MOPAR reimburses the dealer for
the cost of the part, if the part number is obsolete or discontinued, if
the part is on Back Order, I.E. MOPAR is out of stock they will
reimburse the supplying dealership 110%, or cost + 10% which is
generally what Dealers in a given geographic area will sell to one another.
