A tweak to our privacy policy

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 3:30pm, Tue 23 Jun 2015

We wanted to let you know we’re making a minor change to our privacy policy to update the provider we use for remarketing, which is when we display Trade Me ads to you after you leave our site. When you do things like browse around Trade Me, make purchases, create listings or add things to your Watchlist, we place a cookie on your browser so that we can serve you with ads when you’re browsing other websites later.

We’ve previously used the Google Display Network to do this, but we’re keen to start using another service called DoubleClick instead. We’ll be tweaking our policy at section 12.g to reflect this. Section 12 of our policy sets out information on how we use cookies.

These changes come into effect on 7 July 2015. As always, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to drop us a line.

Site performance issues

Written by The Trade Me team in Site status at 9:00am, Sun 21 Jun 2015

Trade Me experienced intermittent performance problems over the weekend due to power outages and flooding affecting the links between our data centres, reducing our capacity over peak periods. We are also experiencing some email delays as we clear through a large backlog of outbound mail.

We’re really sorry for any inconvenience that this event has caused. We are continuing to work with local providers to get things back to normal, and adding extra capacity to reduce the chance of ongoing problems.

Payments issues RESOLVED

Earlier today we experienced an issue processing credit card payments – sorry about any pain this caused you.

We’ve now fixed this problem so you should be able to use your credit or debit card on-site again.

New makes and models for Trade Me Motors

Written by The Trade Me Motors team in General and Motors at 3:00pm, Tue 16 Jun 2015

We’re always looking for ways to make it easier for sellers to list vehicles on Trade Me, and for buyers to find the vehicle they are looking for.

A listing that is described accurately is important to buyers and sellers alike, so today we’ve updated our Used car category by adding three car makes: McLaren, Morgan and Tesla, along with nearly 300 car models. We’ve also updated Motorbikes with the addition of 29 bike makes.

We hope you find these new categories useful. More...
