Payments delay for Labour Day

Written by Charles in General and Top Seller at 3:26pm, Thu 18 Oct 2012

The banks shut up shop on Monday 22 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 19 October, the payment won’t be processed until the morning of Wednesday 24 October. Sorry for any inconvenience caused, but that’s the nature of public holidays. Enjoy the long weekend!

We hope you enjoy the new look, and of course you’re welcome to flick us an email to let us know what you think.
