Frequently Asked Questions

Unlike payment apps like PayPal and Cash App, KeySavvy verifies the buyer's identity and the seller's ownership of the vehicle. We guarantee buyers receive a clear title and sellers get paid. In contrast, PayPal explicitly excludes vehicles from purchase protection.

Other peer-to-peer payment services are primarily intended for smaller transactions between friends and family. They have limits that are much lower than a typical vehicle sale price. KeySavvy has no transaction limit and guides buyers and sellers through the process, including help with all the necessary paperwork and title transfer. As a licensed dealer, we have access to data that enables more thorough verification and helpful services like temporary operating permits.

Sellers pay a flat fee of $79. If the vehicle has a loan, KeySavvy charges an additional $99 to pay off the loan as part of the sale.

Buyers also pay a flat fee of $79.

Buyers and sellers can split fees equally, or have one party pay all fees.

After the seller adds their vehicle to KeySavvy and a buyer accepts their price, verification generally takes 5-10 minutes. If the seller has a loan, we'll contact their lender which can delay a transaction depending on the lender. After the buyer submits payment, we usually approve the transaction within 15 minutes.

Tips for using KeySavvy when you're in a rush.

Yes! Unlike traditional private party sales, when you buy an eligible used electric or plug-in vehicle using KeySavvy, you may qualify for a tax credit of 30% of the purchase price, up to $4,000.
  • The vehicle must be in the list of eligible vehicles
  • You must be a qualified buyer
  • The purchase price must be $25,000 or less.
  • The vehicle must not have been sold to another qualified buyer after August 16, 2022. KeySavvy will help confirm the vehicle's eligibility.

Because the tax credit is partially based on your income, we cannot determine your personal eligibility. Review the IRS Used Clean Vehicle Credit website or consult a tax professional to confirm your eligibility.

KeySavvy uses third-party identity verification technology to confirm the seller's identity. We then use a combination of public records, seller-provided information, and DMV records to verify that the seller is the legal owner of a vehicle.

KeySavvy provides a NMVTIS vehicle history report, verifies the identity of the buyer and seller, and checks for loans and liens that would prevent the buyer from registering the vehicle.

CARFAX and AutoCheck provide vehicle history reports, but they don't protect against buyer or seller fraud, or allow buyers and sellers to complete their transaction online.
