Feedback and stars

At the end of every auction we encourage the buyer and seller to place feedback about each other. This feedback should represent how the person was to deal with in terms of their obligations as a buyer or seller on Trade Me.

By reviewing a member's feedback you can see what other traders thought of their trading behaviour. It will help you assess whether they are a reliable trader or not.

Reviewing a seller's feedback and trading history before bidding is essential, and is the best way to protect yourself as a buyer.

The number in brackets next to a trader's username is their feedback rating. E.g. super_trader(5). Feedback ratings are calculated by subtracting negative feedback from positive feedback.

A higher feedback rating is given to traders with more positive feedbacks. The number of stars next to a trader's name represents their feedback rating. The more feedback, the more stars.

Note: If you've received feedback you believe to be unfair, check out our help pages for buyers or for sellers.
