Photos: General marketplace photo guidelines

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 3:00 pm, Thu 18 Dec

We know our buyers love great product photos. In fact a good, clear photo of a product is the single most important way to attract a buyer on Trade Me. For this reason we’ve developed some guidelines that we encourage sellers to follow in order to maximise your sales in Trade Me’s general marketplace.

We encourage our sellers to follow these guidelines when uploading photos of your products in Trade Me’s general marketplace: More...

Good news for renters & property managers

Written by Paul & Jeff in General and Property at 2:00 pm, Tue 9 Dec

The Trade Me Property team has some good news for property managers and people who rent: we’ve signed an agreement to purchase Viewing Tracker, a small Wellington company that minimises hassles around making arrangements to view rental properties. The business has been going for 18 months and has one staff member, founder Aaron Clancy, who will join the Trade Me Property team later this month.

Our head of Trade Me Property Nigel Jeffries reckons Viewing Tracker is a clever product that clients love and he’s looking forward to getting it in front of taking it to a wider audience. "We want to increase the value we add and make the user experience on Trade Me Property better for both property managers and tenants."

We were given a massive box of chocolates for entering, which we're auctioning off for KidsCan too. Check it out and throw down a bid if you've got a sweet tooth! More...
