Buying and Selling by Region

Written by Trade Me staff at 3:01pm, Fri 28 Feb 2003

We have just made it a whole lot easier to browse auctions by region. Have a look at the new options that are available on the categories and listing pages. Your default region is set when you login and will continue to turn up as your preferred option. If you click 'other' and change your preferred region, Trade Me will remember this as your default. Buying and Selling locally just got a whole lot easier. Enjoy.
