    Gary, I'm a bit over this defence of TradeMe. If they are supplying products that everyone can use they ought to get them right - it's been years - and yes, you can list all the can and cannot but that's like leaving pot holes on a road and telling drivers to keep swerving to miss them assuming they will be paying 100% attention to every metre of road they drive instead of just fixing them - it's not a major job their end and they've done literally nothing over except take fees, and increase those fees, especially for professional sellers, and give nothing in return.  And just this past wee...

    A RELIST request, actioned, generates a new listing NOT linked to My Products. So if you ACTIVATE your My Products listings again, you will have TWO listings for the ONE item. Go to MY PRODUCTS and you will see the RE-LISTED item does NOT have listing number next to it. Can TradeMe please finally sort these issues out so we do not keep selling items that we don't have because we've sold it days, weeks, months or years earlier due to exactly this fault. And to those people who insist on defending the status quo, NO, I should not be expected to ASSUME I, or anyone else, who may be using My Pr...

    Hi Callum and Co,My concern is it took over two weeks to get a response and when I got one it had an excuse in it, there is no excuse, and it didn't answer either question. Every business has expenses but my question was why in-trade sellers who bring in far more money by definition than non-trade sellers have to pay more in fees when they get no additional services. TradeMe, want to have another go at that?And the fact he/she/they didn't provide the second part of the answer seems to mean that questions are a nuisance and they can't be bothered reading them.

    I asked TradeMe on Sep 28, 2023, 10:06 GMT+13 the following: I’m confused now. Why are in trade sellers charged more when we bring more business in? And what are the categories that are changing as they don’t seem to be in that reminder email, thanks. This really makes no sense and it’s forcing sellers of used items especially to reconsider selling on the platform. Rob On Oct 13, 2023, 17:50 GMT+13 TradeMe responded: Kia ora Robert, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you about this, we've been under the pump here at Trade Me. Like any company, we review our prices from time t...

    For all we know they have and negotiated their own deal below cost which is why the rest of us are expendable

    Who’s to say they’ve gotten away with it yet? They’ve lost mega goodwill, opened the space up to competitors, and showing all the signs of a company trying to achieve short term goals having given up on the long term vision.

    Lucy, I pointed out rather clearly that TradeMe choose NOT to be pro-active around these scammers from what I can see. For example, these scammers hack into peoples accounts, create listings, and then change payment instructions or various other things. A simple confirmation email to the listed email of each hacked account would alert the account holders to having been hacked. Two-step authentication would stop it. Requiring authentication when a login from a new device occurs would stop these scams. I could go on but I don’t believe they are taking it seriously. That’s my opinion. An...

    The only thing necessary for evil to triumph......TradeMe, are you good people? Do something, please.

    That new look isn't so much bad to look at it's just not as helpful to buyer or seller. One does wonder if they have cut corners on their testing so they've done what they wanted to do but didn't check to see if it was the optimal layout. It is getting to the point of "who cares" though isn't and last one out turn the lights off. I wouldn't like to see a competition come in and split the market but you can't help but think FB Marketplace isn't just going to gain more and more market share.
