Fees and fee calculator
A success fee applies if your item sells, but is refundable if the sale isn't completed.
Feel free to contact us about special rates for registered charities.
Trade fees (and increased support) are available to very large professional sellers who put through significant volume. These are negotiated directly with the company and depend on volume (typically over $1.5 million of gross sales per year). If you think you may qualify for Trade fees please contact the marketplace team at firstname.lastname@example.org

|Super Feature||Pricing varies depending on category of listing|
From time to time, Trade Me may test new pricing on listing and promotional fees and optional add-ons by raising the price or offering a discount. This may be for existing or new features. We do this to balance the level of use of promotional options in our categories. Price changes may run for a limited time, and may be specific to a particular category, promotional extra, optional add-on or listing method. Sometimes as part of A/B testing our pricing, some members will be offered a different price to other members. If you have any questions about these, just contact us.
