New bid limits to protect sellers

Written by Trade Me staff at 5:45pm, Mon 27 Sep 2004

Today we have introduced a limit on the number of auctions each member can bid on. Members will be limited to bidding on an absolute maximum of 100 auctions (or buy now purchases) in a given 24 hour period.

This has been introduced to stop scammers (or automated software) bidding on large numbers of auctions where there is no intent to purchase.

You can now see the last day that a member logged into Trade Me on their feedback page. The “Last logged in” date is available on the top right-hand of the page.

The change will help other members, in the event of communication problems, to see when you are away from Trade Me for an extended period.
