Do you comply with our Code of Animal Welfare?

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 3:00pm, Thu 23 Jul 2015

We recently released our new Code of Animal Welfare to promote greater animal welfare when cats or dogs are listed with us.

From today, sellers listing a cat or dog can now indicate on their listing if they comply with the Code by selecting a tick box when they create their listing, or by editing their current listing. You’ll notice that cat and dog listings now display one of the following options:

“Animal welfare: The seller has indicated this animal has been bred and cared for in accordance with Trade Me’s Code of Animal Welfare." More...

Earlier this evening we experienced an issue that caused Trade Me to be slow or unavailable for some members. We’ve resolved this issue and have extended all auctions due to close between 9:39pm and 10:30pm out by 2 hours. We do apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.

Changes to our Cats and Dogs categories

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 3:00pm, Mon 20 Jul 2015

We recently released our new Code of Animal Welfare for Cats and Dogs. When we announced the code we gave Trade Me members a heads up about some changes coming to listing cats and dogs in order to promote greater animal welfare when they’re listed with us.

The first of those changes comes into effect today. We have now split the Cat and Dog categories into 'to buy’ and ‘to adopt’. This allows sellers to clearly state whether they are selling a dog or cat, or if they’re simply trying to rehome an animal they can no longer care for.

All current listings are in the process of being migrated to the new categories so sellers don’t need to make any changes to their listings.  More...

Privacy Policy change coming into effect today

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 2:00pm, Tue 7 Jul 2015

Two weeks ago we gave you a heads up about a minor change to our privacy policy. We’ve previously used the Google Display Network for remarketing, which is when we display Trade Me ads to you after you leave our site. Going forward we’ll also be using another service called DoubleClick. We’ve tweaked our policy at section 12.g to reflect this, so make sure you have a read of our updated policy as this change comes into effect today.

When you do things like browse around Trade Me, make purchases, create listings or add things to your Watchlist, we'll continue to place a cookie on your browser so that we can serve you with ads when you’re browsing other websites later. Section 12 of our policy sets out information on how we use cookies.

As always, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to drop us a line.
