We're stoked to be supporting the Starship Spring Clean again this year! It's a way for us to help out one of New Zealand's most awesome organisations, the Starship Children’s Foundation and will run through the month of September.
There are 3 things involved: list an item (preferably at $1 reserve), pledge to donate auction proceeds to Starship, and then donate once the item is sold.
It’s a win-win: while cleaning out your cupboards, you’ll also be raising money for a great cause. More...
The first change is to 6.2. We’re moving the following information out of 6.10 and into 6.2:

A couple of years ago we launched Rummage, a tool that gave us a fun, visual way to browse Trade Me.
Last week we said farewell to this funky feature to allow us to focus on enhancing our core site and mobile apps. If you head to Rummage, you’ll now be redirected back to Trade Me.
We’ve got lots of cool updates in the pipeline to make our site even better, so keep an eye out.
Today we delivered our full-year results for the 12 months to 30 June 2014.
If you're interested in finding out more information about the results, or just general information about investing in Trade Me, head on over to the official Trade Me Group investor relations site.
We’ve made a decision to change the rules around the sale of endangered animal parts on Trade Me. The revised rules will come into effect on 17 September 2014.
The ban will affect almost all ivory sales on Trade Me. It also includes parts from animals such as red panda, gorilla, chimpanzee, tigers, lion, leopards, jaguar, cheetah, elephants, dugong, manatees and rhinoceros.

We’re doing this as it is the right thing to do. We’ve consulted with a lot of experts in this area, including advocacy groups and the Department of Conservation. This move is in line with international trends. More...
