We’re changing the way you top up your Trade Me account. Soon you’ll be able to top up via Ping, using Ping credit or any of the cards or bank accounts saved through Ping.
As part of this change, the minimum top up when Trade Me account is at $0 balance or higher will only be $1 (as opposed to the previous $10 limit), and when your Trade Me account balance is in debt there is no minimum top up.
In the coming weeks we’ll also remove the ability to top up your Trade Me account over the phone and by cheque, as we focus on more secure payment options. More...

Trade Me will be unavailable on Saturday, 6 July between 2am and 5am for scheduled maintenance. All auctions that are due to close between 2am and 5:30am will be extended by four hours. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
As we announced on 14 June, we've made a minor change to the Ping, Pay Now and Afterpay terms and conditions.
This change clarifies that we may dispose of goods that have been returned to us under Buyer Protection, where we've been unable to return those goods to a seller within 90 days.
This doesn't reduce or affect the seller's obligation to repay any amount that we've refunded to the buyer on their behalf.
