Cool builds
We've been flat tack building all sorts of features to make buying and selling on Trade Me a breeze. Here are the top three things we've recently released out into the wild:
New feature: Shopping Cart

We're chuffed to see thousands of members using our new Shopping Cart to buy multiple items at once. While the Cart is only available on the desktop site for now, we're working on introducing it to mobile so watch this space.

The Cart can be used for listings that offer Buy Now and credit card or debit card payment via Pay Now. It's super-easy to use – all you need to do is hit the 'Add to Cart' button when you see it on a listing.
Neat update: Trade Me iPhone app
Our clever mobile gurus have been hard at work creating all kinds of handheld awesomeness, including a fresh, new-look Trade Me for iPhone app.

What's the benefit to you?

Stay up-to-date with your buying and selling activity. A notification will appear if something changes on your account (eg. you are outbid or asked a question). Over time we'll add even more personalised information to this feature.

Find the stuff you want faster with our redesigned Search. If you're looking for that new pair of pants, Holden V8 Ute, bach by the sea or high-flying job, we'll help you narrow down your search results by category, location and other refine options.

Navigate around the app at pace and with ease with our new, more flexible tab bar at the bottom of the screen.

We've also got dedicated Trade Me Jobs and Trade Me Property iOS apps that are pretty darn cool too – check them out.

Sell your car by number plate
We've just released a nifty new feature in Trade Me Motors that will make selling your car even easier.

With some help from our friends at NZTA, we can now grab a bunch of information about your car and fill in most of the listing details for you – all you need to do is provide us your number plate or VIN. Add a description, some photos and the price, and your listing is ready to go.

The nose knows...
Our buddies at FindSomeone are holding NZ's first Pheromone Party in Auckland on 24 July.

Pheromone parties are matchmaking events based on scents. "Whaaat?!" I hear you say. Sleep in a t-shirt for three nights, then pop it in a zip lock bag for the party. You'll get to sniff the other t-shirts and if you like someone's smell you will get to meet each other.

If you're aged between 20 and 30 you could win tickets to the party plus return flights from anywhere in the country, and accommodation for you and a wingman or BFF.
