Michael Lyons: Mypafway Is the Leading Marketplace for Canadian Automotive Parts Industry

Mypafway is the leading marketplace for Canadian automotive parts industry. Mypafway’s auto part search engine and the leading provider of online marketing services for automotive part merchants.

Mypafway specializes in the buying, selling and searching of automotive parts and accessories online, using new and existing technology.

Our mission is to ensure the competitiveness of auto the parts industry, so that consumers have choice of product, receive quality parts at competitive prices.

Tell us about yourself?

As an avid car enthusiast and prior car detailer, I was tired of rummaging through books, magazines and websites to find the best deals on auto parts and accessories.

So I came up with the concept of allowing enthusiasts and others intuitively browse through a large catalog of auto parts and accessories. Purchases become confusing to say the least.

Very often, car parts are not available at all outlets requiring multiple trips not only to different vendors but even to the same one. At some point in time, we all get tired, give up and take home something only to find that our purchase is not suited to our budget and needs. This is where Mypafway comes in.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

“I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.” Elon Musk.

Based upon that quote I think it’s important to embrace change even though change might be unsettling for the time being.

What problem does your business solve?

Mypafway manages flow of part information from manufacturer or resellers to consumer by providing a time, place and ownership utility for consumers.

Mypafway’s distribution channel creates efficiencies by reducing the number of transactions necessary for goods to flow from many different manufacturers to a large number of consumers.

This occurs by creating Assortments (Web Based Applications).

What is the inspiration behind your business?

Disinformation and clutter. Mypafway’s Comparison Shopping allows consumers the ability to conveniently find many auto parts from more than one seller at one time.

What is your magic sauce?

Mypafway’s Comparison Shopping Engine is an application enabling consumers and businesses to search for automotive parts.

The Comparison Shopping Engine is easy to navigate and fun to use. Its design theme looks fantastic. Consumers can select from a wide variety of car manufacturers and select which automotive parts they want to buy.

Mypafway’s Comparison Shopping Engine allows consumers to search for many different automotive parts from many different clients.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

Shopping is a time-consuming activity especially when one is faced with a budget constraint and/or unfamiliarity of the auto part. In this aspect, comparison shopping is the safest thing to do.

Shoppers need to gather information about the auto part to be purchased; and most importantly the quality and price information. We’re in the process of re-developing the website with new applications, a new user interface, a B2B Client interface and a new comparison shopping engine.

We plan on positioning Mypafway as the new Canadian auto part network for manufacturers, resellers and suppliers.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

Our biggest hurdle is the transformation of client data. We want to transform our catalogue data whereby its universal across all platforms within Mypafway’s applications.

How do people get involved/buy into your vision?

Interaction between the customer and the service provider should not be overlooked. The quality of service can play a big role in determining how the customer views the product.

The most expertly cooked meal is ruined if an incompetent waiter brings it to the table. In this case, the quality of service can play a big role in determining how we feel about the service we receive.

New clients can reach out to [email protected] to test drive our beta website. By doing this, they can get a glimpse into how the new UI works.
