Search tips

  • Use quotes " " to find an exact phrase, e.g. "Bob the Builder"
  • Use an asterisk * to search a partial word, e.g. Tea cup* matches cup, cups and cupboard
  • Use an uppercase ‘OR’ between two search terms to find either one of the terms, e.g. Canon OR Nikon will give you results for either one of those brands. You can also use a pipe ‘|’ to perform this function, e.g. Canon | Nikon
  • Use an uppercase ‘NOT’ with two search terms to find the first term but ignore the second term, e.g. iPod NOT shuffle will give you results for iPods but exclude references to shuffle. You can also use a minus sign ‘’ immediately before the second term to perform this function, e.g. iPod shuffle
  • By default, Trade Me will find variations of search terms, e.g. fish will give you results for fish and fishing. Use a plus sign + immediately before a search term to find only that exact term, e.g. +fish
