Retail Rating explained
Our Retail Rating is a unique measure of how fast a car or van is likely to sell in your location if the vehicle is priced at the market value.
Retail Rating considers a number of factors, including Average Days to Sell and Supply and Demand, to score the vehicle between 1-100. Helping you to make more data driven decisions when buying stock, so you can make more profit.

Retail Back explained
Thinking Retail Back is the process of starting with the Retail Valuation of a vehicle and taking away expected costs and your target gross margin to reach the maximum price you should pay for a car.
