Archive for April 2014 announcements
Sellers can now choose from a list of brands when selling in the Clothing & Fashion category, if appropriate for their item. This will make it easier for buyers to search for and find clothing items on Trade Me.
Using the brand attribute is optional, but we reckon it’s a good idea – the chances of buyers finding your item goes up the more relevant information you provide. More...
This means you can now view and filter by 'zone' and 'type' of school in the area for listings that have the correct address information. As with boundary zones, we think this is another handy feature to help potential buyers in their property hunting. It will also be useful for people looking to rent a home in the right place. There is some general information about property maps in our Help section.
Easter is almost here, so we wanted to give you a heads up there will be a delay with processing payments over the long weekend.
The banks will be closed on Friday 18 April and Monday 21 April (they need time to eat their Easter eggs, too!), so if you use phone or internet banking to top up your Trade Me account there will be a delay in your payment reaching us.
If your payment is made after 8pm today, it will arrive in your Trade Me account on the morning of Tuesday 22 April. More...
We've just finished tinkering away in the Hunting & shooting category and thought we'd give you a progress update. As mentioned last week, we made changes to this category in two stages and have now completed our work here. Boom!
In short, we've added subcategories to the Shotguns, Rifles and Ammunition categories. You’ll still need to provide your firearms license ID for purchasing in these categories.
We’re currently working on ways to make it easier for members selling vehicles on Trade Me, and for buyers to find the vehicle they are looking for.
To achieve this, we’re making some changes to the sell process to improve the data we have available. As part of this work we’ve deployed a change today that alters the way we handle the ‘model’ attribute for used cars in Trade Me Motors.
Previously when you listed or relisted a vehicle, a free text field for the model attribute would need to be filled out. We’ve changed this to a drop-down list with a pre-determined set of models based on the chosen vehicle make. We’re also adding a ‘model detail’ field, which allows more specific detail on the sub-model or vehicle badge. More...
