will political manipulation overcome the dmv rulebook for used car startup @beepi ???

USED-CAR STARTUP BEEPI RAISES $300 MILLION

FOR THE SECOND TIME THIS WEEK, A USED-CAR STARTUP HAS SCORED BIG FUNDING.

A used-car marketplace site just scored the holy grail of the startup world: a massive funding round of at least $300 million. Beepi, a California-based company that offers a secure platform for finding, buying, and selling used cars, declined to disclose the investors and said the round would be closing soon.

This is the second gigantic funding round for a used-car site in the past few days. Rival Carvana announced plans for a $300 million round of its own earlier this week.

Both Beepi and Carvana revolve around similar business models to match used cars with buyers. The difference is in how they operate: Beepi’s model lets people sell cars to it online, while Carvana primarily acquires stock through auctions and vehicle trade-ins. But both companies, as well as competitors like Shift, offer hand-inspected cars, delivery to the customer’s door, extensive stock and car choices, and no-questions-asked return policies.


Ale Resnik

Ale Resnik, Beepi’s CEO, told Fast Company the funding would be used to begin operations in one new American city every week, and to scale the company up from 150 to 500 employees. The funding will also be used to ensure regulatory compliance in new markets, and for eventual international expansion.

The reason the used-car marketspace is so hot right now is an unusual culprit: Craigslist. When it came to national prominence at the beginning of the century, Craigslist disrupted traditional used-car marketplaces such as newspaper classifieds. But Craigslist has been slow to keep up with the mobile Internet age for a variety of reasons, and its smartphone-unfriendly interface (despite a plethora of unofficial Craigslist clients), along with a profusion of scammers, means more-agile services have been able to steal considerable market share. Now, it seems, investors are warming up to the possibilities of these sorts of sites.

Avi Steinlauf, the CEO of used car listing firm Edmunds (which competes with Beepi and Carvana by offering used-car advertisements from dealerships), said smartphone use has transformed the way people shop for cars. “All buyers are turning to mobile devices more and more, but we see especially higher engagement for used-car shopping on our mobile site,” Steinlauf told Fast Company in an email. “In fact, on our site, mobile users view the inventory of actual vehicles for sale nearby at rates that are at least 30 percent higher than their wired counterparts.”

The next challenge for Beepi is dealing with the thicket of regulations surrounding the used-car market in regional marketplaces. Resnik told Fast Company that Jim Messina, the influential political adviser, is working with his company. Messina also advises Uber and Airbnb.

Bay Area startup Carlypso to launch used-car selling service in Sacramento
BY MARK GLOVER

Story
Comments
Got a used car to sell? For most, that means negotiating a trade-in at the local dealership or trying to sell it yourself. Both scenarios can be time-consuming, frustrating and potentially risky, especially if you’re unacquainted with current vehicle values and DMV-required paperwork.

Enter a different solution: Carlypso.

Started last year by two Stanford University business school graduates, Carlypso is among a flurry of startup companies offering new ways to help consumers sell their used cars. With its website, a GPS tracking system and a secure “lockbox” for car keys, Carlypso takes on the car-selling burden, even scheduling test drives by potential buyers.

On Monday, the Bay Area startup will launch its service in the greater Sacramento area.

Co-founders Nicholas Hinrichsen and Chris Coleman, who graduated from Stanford last year, say their business concept was forged from their own frustrations trying to sell their own cars, particularly when potential buyers showed up late – or not all – for a test drive. That’s one of the biggest hassles their service is designed to eliminate.

In a phone interview, Hinrichsen, 30, said the pair raised $1.2 million from angel investors after graduation. The origin of their San Carlos-based company’s name: “We wanted something with ‘car’ in it and something that was fun and dynamic.”

Hinrichsen, who noted he’s putting in 80-hour workweeks, said much of 2014 was spent ramping up the company’s business model. Since getting under way in October, first in the Bay Area, then Los Angeles and Orange counties, the company has handled nearly 500 vehicle sales.

Hinrichsen said the push into Sacramento was a natural expansion into a strong car market.

“We were hearing a lot of demand for us there,” Hinrichsen said. By eliminating the hassles of private car sales, “We really can offer something that is safer and more convenient than selling your car yourself.”

Carlypso is just one of a recent rush of U.S. startups aiming to grab attention in the one-on-one car-selling market. The companies – with names like Carphoria, CarLotz, Beepi, Carvana and Tred – all share a common goal: to simplify the car-selling process by handling the sales, testing and document-filing chores that typically frustrate sellers in private-party transactions.

Carlypso claims that it can net sellers on average $1,500 to $2,500 more than they could get on a typical trade-in.

Here’s how it works: Car sellers enter their vehicle’s details – make, model and mileage initially – on Carlypso’s website, www.carlypso.com. Carlypso generates what it calls a fair market price, based on analyzing a nationwide database of vehicle sales, typically 1.2 million transactions a week. Once a price is established, Carlypso sends out an auto expert to inspect the car and clean it inside and out, if necessary.

To handle test drives by prospective buyers, Carlypso installs a device that enables it to track the vehicle by GPS. Sellers can park the vehicle where it’s convenient, such as at work. Potential buyers access the ignition key or fob by swiping their driver’s license or credit card.

Carlypso schedules the test drives, talks to prospective buyers and accepts offers, eliminating those that are low-ball. If a prospective buyer makes a fair offer, Carlypso advises the buyer on how to submit the required paperwork to the state Department of Motor Vehicles. For the seller, Carlypso says it can verify the buyer’s funding.

The company’s fee is 5 percent of the original sales price agreed to by Carlypso and the seller, with a $400 minimum. If the vehicle sells for more, the seller pockets the difference.

Hinrichsen said that about 85 percent of Carlypso’s business is in California, although it has arranged sales in states as far away as Maine.

The concept gets mixed reactions among some in the auto industry.

“From a convenience standpoint, it sounds pretty attractive,” said Len Brewster, a Detroit-based auto industry analyst. “As long as the device they use to keep track of the car when it’s being (test-driven) is foolproof, I’d say it’s a fairly promising business plan. It enables to seller to go about his business and not be constantly interrupted during the selling process.”

John Driebe, who sells Nissan, Infiniti and Mazda vehicles in the Elk Grove Automall and heads the ForAnyAuto Group, said he’s not familiar with Carlypso or its business model but expressed some concerns.

“If you’re selling a $20,000 car, that means they get $1,000 for starters,” he said. “You also don’t know what kind of people are getting into your car (to test drive it), what kind of insurance they have and what kind of financing and myriad other things.

As for the company’s claim that it can get better pricing than from a trade-in, Driebe noted that with so much price information available online, “It’s easy to see if a dealer is offering you a fair price.”

red flag rules is federal law

+++

Long delayed, enforcement of the Fair and Accurate Credit
Transaction Act (FACTA) Red Flags Rule finally began in January
2011. With this regulation in effect, it’s no longer enough to ensure
the proper disposal of sensitive information.

+++

Now, businesses of all kinds are required to create

and put in place a written Identity Theft Prevention Program ( ITPP )

– and can suffer civil penalties and
injunctions if found to be in noncompliance.

+++

What’s in it.
The Red Flags Rule spells out what compliance is – essentially,
what needs to go into the written plan. With a reasonable plan
in place, companies should be able to:
• Identify the so-called “red flags” – patterns and activities
that may indicate the presence of identity theft
• Build methods for detecting red flags into standard
business practices
• Document all responses taken in reaction to signs of
potential identity theft
• Update the plan over time to stay current with evolving
risk factors

+++

we offer a complete red flag program for $ 500.

Visit us for the Red Flag Program

+++

Fortunately, the Red Flags Rule “includes guidelines to help
financial institutions and creditors develop and implement a
Program, including a supplement that offers examples of red
flags.”

+++

Who should pay attention.
As with FACTA itself, the Red Flags Rule has implications for
organizations of all sizes and kinds.
Broadly, it covers two categories of businesses: “financial
institutions” and “creditors.” The definition of “financial institution”
is relatively straightforward:
• All banks, savings associations, and credit unions, regardless
of whether they hold a transaction account belonging to a
consumer; and
• Anyone else who directly or indirectly holds a transaction
account belonging to a consumer.

+++

As for “creditors,” that term covers a lot of ground. Inclusion is
based on three general criteria. Creditors:
• Obtain or use consumer reports in connection with a
credit transaction;
• Furnish information to consumer reporting agencies in
connection with a credit transaction; or
• Advance funds to – or on behalf of – someone, except
for funds for expenses incidental to a service provided by
the creditor to that person.

+++

Last-minute changes to the rule somewhat limited the scope of

what constitutes a “creditor,” but to date there are no hard-and

fast guidelines for which businesses fall under the rule and which
don’t.

+++

According to the Federal Trade Commission, “Examples of
groups that may fall within this definition are utilities, health care
providers, lawyers, accountants, and other professionals, and
telecommunications companies.” But the rule could theoretically
cover any company (or person) that provides a product or service
at a given time and accepts payment for it at a later date.

+++

If that’s not confusing enough, the rule only comes into play if
an organization holds consumer accounts “designed to permit
multiple payments or transactions – or any other account for
which there is a reasonably foreseeable risk of identity theft.”

+++

How to comply.
Because of the Red Flags Rule’s complexity and recent implementation,

it’s best to consult an attorney to see if your organization

falls under its jurisdiction.

You can also search the FTC website
for information on the rule and guidelines on creating an Identity
Theft Prevention Program.
