From 1 November 2017, the price to list a vehicle by auction will increase from $39 to $39.99, and the success fee will increase from 1.95% to 2% of sale price. The maximum success fee and withdrawal fee will remain unchanged.
Over the past year we’ve made a bunch of improvements to Trade Me Motors, like extending our functionality on mobile, releasing an enhanced listing detail page and extending our Reviews & Advice section to include more reviews on a wider range of vehicles.
Trade Me has entered into a conditional agreement to purchase Motorcentral (motorcentral.co.nz), a cloud-based platform for motor vehicle dealers.
Motorcentral’s system provides dealers with an easy-to-use platform that combines inventory management, customer relationship management, advertising plug-in options and website functions.
The business is based in Christchurch and has 15 staff.
As we announced last week, today we’ve made some changes to Trade Me Motors.
Q&A added to classified listings
Previously on a Motors classified listing, buyers only had the ability to email the seller. We've now added the ‘question and answer’ function to classified listings too.*
This means potential buyers can use the Q&A function on Motors classified listings as well as auctions, and other buyers will be able to see what questions have been asked and answered. More...

As we announced last week, today we've changed the listing fees for classified listings on Trade Me Motors. All other fees on Trade Me Motors will remain the same.
We’ve reduced the listing fee for vehicles under $5,000, including adding a new $9.99 listing fee for vehicles under $1,000. We've also added two new pricing tiers and increased the listing fees for vehicles over $5,000.
You can see the new pricing over on our fees help page.
