The banks shut up shop on Monday 22 October for Labour Day, which means some payments to Trade Me accounts will be processed a little later than usual. If you pay via phone or internet banking after 10pm on Friday 19 October, the payment won’t be processed until the morning of Wednesday 24 October. Sorry for any inconvenience caused, but that’s the nature of public holidays. Enjoy the long weekend!
We wanted to give you a heads up that from 1 October, our success fees for general items will be increasing. The average sale price for an item on Trade Me is around $50. This change will see the success fee on an item that sells for $50 increase by 20 cents.
We believe we still provide sellers with excellent value, and over the past year the number of visits to the site has grown by 18%.

We delivered our first full year financial results as a publicly listed company today, for the 12 months to 30 June 2012. 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.
As well as all the financial information, we also announced the acquisition of Tradevine. This is a cloud-based inventory management tool with cool integration into Trade Me. It provides sellers with a dashboard to manage sales, inventory and listings and we think it will be a valuable tool for retailers. You can read more about what they do over at tradevine.co.nz.
