Payment delay for Labour Day

Written by Shona & Shanin in General and Top Seller at 9:58pm, Wed 20 Oct 2010

The banks shut up shop on Monday 25 October for Labour Day, which means some payments to Trade Me accounts will be processed a little later than usual.

If you pay via phone or internet banking after 10pm on Friday 22 October, the payment won’t be processed until the morning of Wednesday 27 October.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused, but that’s the nature of public holidays. Enjoy the long weekend!

New air rifle rules

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 4:01pm, Mon 18 Oct 2010

As a result we have suspended the sale of Tattoo Inks pending getting further direction from ERMA. For more information visit the ERMA website.

Written by Brendon & Yael in General and Motors at 3:33pm, Thu 14 Oct 2010

Team Rainbow Bright reporting in from the finish of the Energywise rally. We landed the short straw and the shortest drive, but potentially the most important (in our own minds). Sean and Nathan handed the keys over with us sitting in a solid 9th position overall for the drivers' comp so the pressure was well and truly on.

6.00am: Woke to a cool wet Rotorua morning, both of us wondering how not to get the car sideways on the wet grass en route to the start line.

7.00am: Car still there thanks to the huge guard dogs. Other teams checking over their cars. Yael and I are nervous. Two texts and a phone call already from the support team back at Trade Me all with the same message: “Don’t f*** it up guys.”  More...
