Trade Me experienced intermittent performance problems over the weekend due to power outages and flooding affecting the links between our data centres, reducing our capacity over peak periods. We are also experiencing some email delays as we clear through a large backlog of outbound mail.
We’re really sorry for any inconvenience that this event has caused. We are continuing to work with local providers to get things back to normal, and adding extra capacity to reduce the chance of ongoing problems.
Earlier today we experienced an issue processing credit card payments – sorry about any pain this caused you.
We’ve now fixed this problem so you should be able to use your credit or debit card on-site again.
We’re always looking for ways to make it easier for sellers to list vehicles on Trade Me, and for buyers to find the vehicle they are looking for.
A listing that is described accurately is important to buyers and sellers alike, so today we’ve updated our Used car category by adding three car makes: McLaren, Morgan and Tesla, along with nearly 300 car models. We’ve also updated Motorbikes with the addition of 29 bike makes.
We hope you find these new categories useful. More...

There are a few moving parts to this, but it will include a new Code of Animal Welfare, a listing cap for sellers which will come into effect on 23 July 2015 as well as some changes to the listing process which will be introduced over the coming weeks and months.
We’ve consulted widely on our policy changes over the past year and have already made some incremental changes along the way.
We have produced the Trade Me Code of Animal Welfare in close consultation with the New Zealand Veterinary Association, the Ministry for Primary Industries, and RNZSPCA. We would also like to acknowledge the input of the New Zealand Kennel Club, The New Zealand Cat Fancy, SAFE and Trade Me members into the policy. More...
