We’re proud to have added the Shielded Site Project shield to the footer of Trade Me. The shield allows victims of domestic abuse to get information and help without it showing in their search history.
The Shielded Site Project was started by Women’s Refuge and Saatchi & Saatchi to help victims of domestic violence and is on a number of sites around the country including Countdown, Z and the Warehouse.
It’s something small we can do for Kiwis who need help and we’ll be telling members about it in our newsletters, Newsroom and social media. More...

We’ve taken a couple of small steps towards providing more support for te reo Maori.
We know we’re not perfect, as you may notice with the missing macrons in this announcement – our site technically can’t support them yet. Today’s changes are a small step, but the first of many and we hope you enjoy them.

We announced in May that we've teamed up with Afterpay to offer a buy now, pay later payment option on Trade Me. We're pleased that as of today Trade Me members can now use Afterpay on over 1.3 million items across 230 categories.
Buyers who use Afterpay get their items immediately but pay it off in four fortnightly interest-free payments. For instance, if a buyer bought a pair of pants for $100 using Afterpay, they receive them straight away but pay them off in fortnightly payments of $25.
For more information check out the Afterpay help pages.
While Trade Me already places a number of restrictions on the sale of firearms, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes with Police to increase the safety and transparency of our firearms community.
From 13 September, we'll begin to ask for the name and number on a firearms licence before allowing a Trade Me member to bid, ask questions, click ‘Buy Now’ or continue with the purchase of a firearms listing. We will use this information to verify that the buyer or seller has a legitimate and current firearms licence, and that those details match their Trade Me membership. More...
