What is Online Shopper?

Our Online Shopper platform enables customers to select, finance, and buy a car online from Coastal Kia through mobile devices such as a laptop, desktop, mobile phone, or tablet. Thanks to real-time inputs, customers will be navigated toward the best deal or offer on any of their favorite Kia models. This is done through a series of questions answered by the customer that are then used by the Online Shopper to personalize an offer for you.

How to Buy a Car Online Using Online Shopper

If you’re new to using our online personal shopper tool, follow these simple steps on how to buy a car online fast and efficiently:

  1. Select Your Car: Find the new vehicle or used vehicle you’re looking for in our online inventory, and then select “Explore Payment Options.”
  2. Answer Questions: A new tab will open, and you’ll be asked basic questions about you, your driving habits, any potential rebates, and your credit score. This information gives Online Shopper what it needs to create your personalized deal.
  3. Trade-In: If you’re trading in a car toward your purchase, you can also fill in details about the year, make, model, and condition of your current vehicle.
  4. Down Payment: You can tell Online Shopper how much you’d like to put down toward your vehicle purchase. You don’t make the payment at this time; rather, this info is used to create your finance offer.
  5. Choose Finance Terms: Select your preferred finance terms, and you’ll be given a finance offer based on all of the previous information you’ve provided.

Finalize Your Online Car Purchase

Once you’ve answered all of the Online Shopper questions and made your choices, you can finish off your purchase with the following items: 

  • Optional Credit Application: If you choose to complete the credit application, Online Shopper will send you an automated email directing you back to Online Shopper so you can finalize the deal. If you don’t complete a credit application, Coastal Kia will get in touch regarding next steps.
  • Final Terms Sheet: You’ll receive a final terms sheet displaying your monthly payments and your approved interest rate. You can also add a warranty or any accessories to protect your purchase, after which you will receive your final payment plan.
