Not sure on what category to list your Car Parts Ad?

As a first time user and seeing how many categories there are, we understand that it may be overwhelming so to help you, we’ll break it down and simplify it for you:

  • Once you’ve filled in your information and got to the “Select A Category To Place This Ad In*” drop down box, click on it. This will make all category options visible to you. You can either scroll through the list or key in a category then select an option you feel suits your ad. 

In the picture below you will see multiple options for the category “Body”. For example, if you are selling a “Bonnet” then you would select the option “Body – Bonnets” but if you were selling a “Body” part that isn’t listed then you would select the top option “Body” which is highlighted. 

If you’re still unsure please feel free to Contact Us.

Are my payment details safe and secure?

Yes, your payment details are safe and secure as they are handled by Stripe and Paypal.

Keeping safe on Fuelics

We want all interactions on Fuelics to be successful and trouble free so to help emphasise the importance of this, we recommend you follow the points below:

  • If you’re meeting up with someone, make sure you do it in a busy public place if possible and take a mate or family member with you. 
  • If a buyer/seller is meeting you at your home or workplace, arrange to have someone with you. Always allow the buyer to inspect the item before agreeing to a sale. 
  • Please use common sense!
  • If something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is!

For example: A stock clean Nissan 180sx is selling for $5,000.   

  • Fuelics does not send out texts so please don’t click on any links that get sent to you as it could be a phishing attempt. Fuelics will only send emails, so if you receive an email from someone that does not have  “@fuelics.com.au” in it please ignore it and don’t click any links.  
  • If you feel that you’ve been the victim of fraud please feel free to Contact Us and send through as much information as you can. We will try to assist as much as possible, but we do recommend you contact local authorities as this is a legal matter/crime.

  • Check to make sure your internet browser and device software are up to date.

We apologise for any confusion this might create. To clarify, the amount you will be charged will always show on the Fuelics checkout page (Image 1) and not on the Paypal popup window (Image 2). In the example below you would be charged $1.33 and not $1.00.
