Buying through CarGurus : "Electronic Payment & Paperwork"

Asked by Abhishek Mar 23, 2019 at 07:17 PM about the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta SE

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I don't understand what the paperwork in "Electronic Payment & Paperwork"
refers to. It is listed as one of the advantages of buying through CarGurus.
If I buy a car through CarGurus, would they take care of the DMV registration
and title transfer?
Can somebody please explain this process to me?
