Selling face masks on Trade Me

Our members are welcome to sell face masks on Trade Me without requiring prior approval, but its really important that members list facemasks in the appropriate category. 

If you’re wanting to sell medical grade face masks that have been recognised as medical devices, and can demonstrate their compliance with an appropriate standard, the best place to list them is:

Health & beauty / Medical supplies / Face masks

Please note that you may be asked at any time to provide evidence that the medical grade face mask meets the appropriate standards.

If you’ve made your mask at home out of reusable fabric, or have a ‘construction or industrial’ face covering, it might even be more of a fashion mask, the medical supplies / face mask is not the right category to sell it in. These masks must only be listed under:

Health & beauty / Face care / Masks

Note that if you claim that a homemade, or as described above, mask meets any recognised safety standards you may be asked at any time to provide evidence of that claim.

If you’re making or buying face masks with the intention to sell them, you must have the ‘In-trade’ badge turned on, and you must also make sure your listings will be priced in accordance with our National Disaster and Civil Emergency Policy.

Face masks can be bought and sold on Trade Me, in accordance with our policy – check out our policy for more info.
