A new way to communicate with buyers and sellers

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 11:00am, Thu 28 Jul 2016

We’ve developed a new messaging system to make it easier for Trade Me buyers and sellers to communicate once a trade has happened. Now you can send a message about a trade from within Trade Me, without having to jump into your emails.

This is currently available to 50% of members and will soon be available for everyone to use.

When you have access, you can use it once you’ve bought or sold something. Wherever you see the ‘Email buyer’ or ‘Email seller’ links or buttons on Trade Me, you’ll be able to send a message. More...

As well as a massive archive of car reviews (thanks to our partners at Auto Media Group), there’ll be new content added every day. This should make it even easier to research vehicles and make informed decisions when you’re buying a car.

Keep an eye out over the next few months for even more features. More...
