Coming up: fee change in the services category

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 5:30pm, Thu 27 Mar 2014

We wanted to let you know that from 3 April we’re increasing the fee for a standard Services listing from $19 to $39 for a 90-day listing (which works out to 43 cents per day).

It’s the first fee increase for a standard Services listing since we launched the category back in August 2010. Note that the optional ‘Feature’ fee will not change.

The category currently has over 9,000 listings. Our favourites include animal riders for kids (North Shore), foam cannons (Marton) and the dog fixer (Wellington). More...

We've been strutting the runway to make Trade Me's most popular category even better. It's not just clothing, it's fashion - Trade Me Fashion!

This is just the start, and these changes are only available on the desktop site for now, but we think you'll like what you see in the new Fashion landing page, with trends and ideas to make your own.

Simple, sleek departments
We’ve reduced the departments in Clothing down to the big four - Women, Men, Girls, Boys - and created a new navigation bar just for Fashion. More...

We’re back and ready for action, this time with some changes to the Hunting & shooting category. We’ll be making some changes to this category in two stages, so after today’s announcement we’ll reload and shoot out another announcement a little further down the track.

Motors pricing changes on the way

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 4:00pm, Mon 24 Mar 2014

On 7 April we’re making some changes to listing and auction withdrawal fees for selling vehicles on Trade Me. This includes cars, motorbikes, boats and other vehicles such as aircraft, buses, caravans & motorhomes, earthmoving machinery, horse floats, specialist cars, tractors, trailers, trucks and wrecked cars.

If you are selling a vehicle via a classified, the listing fee for vehicles with an asking price over $10,000 will increase from $69 to $79. Auction fees and all other classified listings under $10,000 will remain unchanged. Please note that if the asking price is increased, this may increase your listing fee. There is no success fee for a classified listing.

The auction withdrawal fee will increase from $19 to $39. When you list an item for sale on Trade Me as an auction, you should have the intention to sell this item through the site.  More...
