    Yes, its king of annoying. While all my courier stuff has TM shipping templates attached to them, I have some larger item which have to go on freight. My freight company quotes per job location( and dont produce a set of rates) so its not possible to quote as per TM shipping templates as there are many hundreds of different prices for NZ. King of between a rock and a hard spot. While I offer shipping options to main cities , business zone delivery, all other locations need to be custom quoted

    Sandy, you might also ask why buyers dont place feedback, it will be the same answer I guess. Feedback placement from buyers nowadays is very low (maybe 50%) as opposed to 85% 10 years ago. Just because they cannot be bothered or feel its got no purpose, or too busy doing other stuff. There is however more reason for sellers to place feedback (at least regular sellers) as it in turn encorages buyers to reciprocte to place feedback which in turn should help build trust in the seller when traders in future consider buying from them

    I would say legally that Phillipa has no problem. She has promised them shipping, its up to her how she sends. The contract was to deliver it without specification of how many packages. Legally she can charge what she likes on shipping. However within trademes regulations, she cannot profit on shipping (even though TM plainly do by charging success fees on shipping, "Do as I say, not as I do comes to my mind) which she would likely be doing if she was paid 2 lots of shipping, but sent as one parcel. Morally is a different story though, and hard to justify morally. When in a dilemma of this ...

    No Amy. There is no rule about "when" you should place feedback as it is voluntary , you can place when you like or not at all. TM do however have guidlines about feedback. " General guidelines All Traders are expected to maintain a feedback rating of at least 95%. We encourage members to place feedback for all trades. Feedback is a permanent part of your Trade Me account. Negative feedback can be disputed for up to 45 days from the date of purchase.   Although certain exceptional circumstances will result in feedback being removed or edited, feedback will remain a permanent part of you...

    Im trying to blacklist a trader. I get as far as putting their name in blacklist box. But when I click go I just get a banana error coming up. Are others getting this?

    Only really 2 ways. Search your emails with key words like cat or the cats name. It may bring up trademe emails or some after sale correspondence with new owner.  Also there will have been a listing fee or success fee perhaps so can click on the listing numbers within your trademe account transactions which will then show the listing title. If you dont list on TM much, it maybe simple as not many entries, if you list a lot it could be impossible  with so many to check

    I now have an answer. Its about 18 cents/ click. As a result of 16 clicks I sold 1 item. Sale price of item $25, cost of the 16 clicks, $4.50. So just on that trial I cannot see it being of value. The trouble is you want to promote your hard to sell items, but there is no option to select which item you you wish to promote, it promotes all of your present listings
