Modal sources data from Kelley Blue Book to determine the estimated value of a customer's trade-in vehicle in Checkout, Shop, and Trade. Once the customer has entered the required fields for their trade-in, a KBB evaluation is presented to the user where they can accept or decline the offer. In Checkout, the estimated value will be applied to the vehicle of interest's checkout price.
Modal has the ability to adjust the final values presented to the customer after they have entered their vehicle's information. The following customizations can be made:
- Use the 'LOW', 'MIDDLE' or 'HIGH' value.
- Adjust the value by a percentage, either positive or negative.
- Adjust the value by a dollar amount, either positive or negative.
Please note that the value displayed to the user will always fall within the Trade-In Range produced by KBB. For example, if your dealership uses the 'MIDDLE' value minus $2,000 and the Trade-In Range from KBB is $13,000 - $15,000, the customer will be shown $13,000 not $12,000 ($14,000 - $2,000) as this value is outside of the Trade-In Range.
To update your Trade-In value settings, please contact your Modal Customer Success Manager or open a support ticket with Modal's Integration & Support team.
Can Modal Use Another Data Source Besides KBB?
Currently Modal only supports trade data from KBB. Please talk to your Modal Customer Success Manager to discuss potential future integrations

KBB Evaluation will have the following in the ADF XML:
