Site Changes

Member feedback

You can now only place feedback if you were the seller, winning bidder, or accepted an offer in an auction. This is to prevent abuse of the feedback system from people who haven't been involved in any transaction.
You can place feedback from any expired listing if you were involved.


The watchlist has been updated so that you can view all the options available to you (placing feedback, adding a note to the auction) in the same format as the listing pages for sellers.
View the watchlist by clicking wither of the links under 'My bids / watchlist' on the My Trade Me tab.

Fixed-price offer

If an auction closes below reserve, the seller can choose to offer the item to any or all of the bidders, at a fixed price. The first bidder to accept the offer wins. Standard success fees apply.

Leaderboard removed

The leaderboard has been removed for the time being, as it was becoming slow due to the number of calculations involved.

Site changes and new features

Subscribe to a category

You can now get the latest listings in a category sent to you via email. To subscribe, go to the appropriate category and click the new 'subscribe' button on the right hand side.

Sort a category by latest listings or closing soon

You can now sort category listings by closing soon, or by latest listings.

New search engine

There have been changes to the search engine. Previously, if you searched for 'new ram',
you would only find listings containing the exact phrase 'new ram'.
The new search engine will search for either or both words, and returns results ranked in this order:

  1. An exact match for 'new ram' in a listing title
  2. An exact match for 'new ram' in a listing description
  3. Both the words 'new' and 'ram', but not next to each other. Eg: 'new 128Mb Ram'
  4. Listings with either 'new' or 'ram' but not both
  5. Listings with words containing 'new' or 'ram' Eg: 'newspaper', 'ramstein'

You will now get a lot more results from your searches, with the most relevant ones at the top of the list.

Buy and sell tabs, new "run an auction" page
