Getting started is easy. If you’re initiating Caramel checkout, all you need is the year, make, & model of the vehicle you’re looking to buy, as well as the email address of the seller. If a seller initiates, you skip this step.

How selling works

Information
Getting started is easy. All you need is the VIN and mileage of your vehicle. If you’re initiating Caramel checkout, you can optionally enter the email address of your buyer if you have one.
Compatible with any private sale
We’re not a marketplace or listings site. That means buyers can find a car anywhere and sellers can advertise their car for sale anywhere, and then use Caramel to checkout.

Everyone’s verified. Even the cars.

With multiple layers of identity verification technology & biometrics, we authenticate each buyer & seller. Once verified, buyers & sellers unlock premium third-party vehicle reports – for free.

No pressure, lots of options

Buyers can add financing, vehicle protection, insurance, & delivery in a tap or click.

Never send cash or wires to a stranger

Payment is digital, secure, & traceable. We hold money in escrow until car & title are delivered, so buyers know they’ll get what they’ve paid for & sellers know they’ll get paid fast.

Goodbye DMV line

We take care of all the title & paperwork, saving you headaches & hours at the DMV.

    I was nervous to buy a car from someone online, but Caramel made me feel safe. They verified the seller and even sent me reports about the car.

    I love being able to agree on a price without any calls or texts. It makes negotiating easy.

  • Eva P.

    I like that you can do financing in Caramel. It allows me to buy private party with the convenience of a dealership.

    Going to the DMV is my least favorite part of buying a car. I still can't believe that Caramel does the DMV work for you.

    Definitely makes me feel more secure in buying a vehicle private party. I also really like the delivery option.
