Introduction to listing tools
Save time and effort – listing tools can do a lot of the heavy lifting for you by automating time-consuming tasks.
What’s a listing tool?
A listing tool is another way to create and manage your listings and inventory – outside the Trade Me site. They’re purpose-built for pro-sellers and are designed to save you time – and time is money!
We recommend all professional sellers use a listing tool, so you can make the most out of your Trade Me presence and keep the effort to a minimum. Some listing tools can also integrate with other e-commerce platforms, if you have multiple sales channels.
Many of these tools are way more powerful than the main Trade Me site, giving you more options to manage your listings and sales.
Automatic relisting – so long as there’s stock available.
Automatic listing withdrawal when out of stock.
Bulk listing creation & editing – hit them all in one go.
Shipping Templates – shows shipping timeframes in search (preferred by buyers).
Xero accounting integration.
Multiple-variant listings (e.g. size and colour options).
Listings and sales don’t expire after 45 days, as they do on Trade Me.
Integration with third-party inventory management.
Bear in mind that not all tools offer all of these benefits – and some might offer more. It’s always good to do your own research, to find the right solution for your business.
