Selling face masks on Trade Me

Only members who have the explicit permission from Trade Me may list face masks in the face mask category. 

All in-trade members wanting to sell medical/surgical or respirator masks must apply and be approved to sell in the category.

We will consider on a case-by-case basis non medical masks which have filters and demonstrate compliance with a recognised standard.

Homemade’ or fabric face masks are not permitted to be listed on Trade Me. 

You need to supply the following information which will be used as part of the assessment: 

  • WAND registration numbers.
  • Test certificates that demonstrate compliance to recognised standards. Here are some examples of good standards.
  • Photos of the actual goods outside of the packaging with logos, printing and all other markings clearly identified. Also include images of the boxes/packaging the masks are homed in
  • Receipts from your supplier.

Be warned, we have seen a lot of fake certificates and honest traders have been duped. Applications with incorrect test reports will be declined, regardless of good faith intent. 

To be an approved face mask seller, you must have the ‘In-trade’ badge turned on

By making an application you are affirming to Trade Me that you have undertaken your own assessment of your goods against all the relevant safety regulations and that they meet the applicable safety standards. 

You may only list the items for which you have submitted for approval.

Listings will be Buy Now only and your goods must be priced in accordance with our National Disaster and Civil Emergency Policy.
