My Products is Trade Me’s in-house listing tool, aimed at small-to-medium-sized sellers on the site. It allows you to run your business more smoothly by automatically managing your Trade Me listings, based on the parameters set by you.

To get started, you begin by creating your products. Products have the same details as a standard Trade Me listing, but also include extra details such as setting the stock level and choosing a SKU that enables you to manage your stock.

Once your products are set up, My Products will ensure there is always a listing running for each product, for as long as stock is available.

In using My Products you’ll also have access to features such as automatically sending out Fixed Price Offers, updating products in bulk, listing footers, and the My Products ‘Sold’ tab.

Tradevine is an ideal solution for online sellers and retailers who wish to sell products in multiple internet marketplaces and have the convenience of managing it all in one place, but can also be a great option for medium-to-large businesses where Trade Me is a main channel.

Trade Me also has direct integrations available with the following e-commerce providers:

  • Channeladvisor
  • Blackpepper
  • Solutionists

Auto-billing

Auto-billing is a great way to ensure your products continue to relist automatically without worrying about your account balance.

Once set up, auto-billing will automatically charge your credit card on a weekly basis for the fees you’ve incurred. Every Tuesday, we check your balance and if you’re in debt, we’ll pop you an email with a heads up on how much you’ll be charged. Then on the Thursday of that week, we’ll automatically charge your saved credit card.

If you credit your account between Tuesday and Thursday, we'll deduct that from the amount that is due to be charged. For example, if Tuesday's account balance was -$200 and you topped up by $50, we'd only charge your credit card $150 on the Thursday.

Throughout this process, as long as auto-billing is active on your account, you’ll be able to relist while in debt.

If your credit card declines, your auto-billing is turned off and you'll go back to the usual prepaid process. You're able to enable and disable auto-billing at any time via your My Trade Me page.
