Saved credit cards

When you top up your Trade Me account or make a payment using Pay Now or Ping, you have the option of saving your credit or debit card details to your Trade Me account.

Saving your card details to your account means that you won’t have to re-enter this information the next time you credit your account or make a purchase with Pay Now or Ping. Any card details saved when crediting your account can also be used to make a purchase with Ping.

Your details are safe

If you choose to save your card details, these will be encrypted and securely stored by Trade Me with our trusted payment partners. You can help keep your details safe too by taking extra care with your account and remembering to keep your passwords safe.

Deleting your saved details

You can delete your credit/debit card details from your Trade Me account at any time. Saved credit card details live in two places – your Trade Me top up account and Ping. If you're wanting your credit card details gone, they'll need to be removed from both places.

To remove your saved card details from your Trade Me top up account, click 'My Trade Me' on the homepage, from here select 'Add credit' and click the 'delete this card' link.

To delete your saved card details from Ping, head to 'My Trade Me' menu and look for the Ping logo, then select 'Manage'. This takes you to your Ping information page. Go to 'Payment methods' and you'll see your saved card details with the option to delete them.

If you are using our apps, head to 'Account' and select 'Manage Ping'. From this page, select 'Payment methods' and then select 'Edit', where you'll have the option to delete your saved card.

Changing or adding new details

You may enter and save new credit/debit card details at any time when you top up your Trade Me account or make a payment using Pay Now or Ping.
