We’ve just rolled out the new listing page to all members browsing in the Car parts & accessories, Car stereos, Motorbikes > Parts for sale, and Motorbikes > Helmets, clothing & footwear categories. Soon we'll be rolling it out to the Shotguns, and Rifles categories too.
We’ve redesigned the listing detail page to make the browsing and buying experience better across Trade Me’s desktop site. There’s a fresh new look with tabbed sections for quick access to the Description and Questions & answers. More...
We’ve added new information to Trade Me Property listings on our desktop site. You can now see the rateable value (RV) of nearby listings on the map of residential properties listed for sale in Auckland, Wellington City and Christchurch.

How do I see this information?
When you are on a residential listing that is for sale in Auckland, Wellington City or Christchurch on our desktop site, select the tick box “Show nearby RVs” to see a selection of RVs for nearby properties. More...
We’ve kicked off our trial of a new shipping service for a selection of sellers on Trade Me. It’s part of an exciting but complex initiative to make shipping on Trade Me easier and faster, with great prices.

We’re just getting started but it’s great to have something out in the wild – we’re looking forward to the feedback, getting more sellers involved and expanding the functionality. The aim is for the new shipping option to be available to all Trade Me sellers over the next few months. More...
Today we announced that oldfriends.co.nz will be closing in a couple of months.
Why are you closing down Old Friends?
We’re always working hard to improve the experience for our members and we’ve struggled to give Old Friends sufficient oxygen recently, given the bigger opportunities in the core areas of our business. Because of this, we think the time is right to pull down the shutters.
