GST changes for international purchases live today

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 8:30am, Sun 1 Dec 2019

As we announced in September, from today, we will be collecting NZ GST of 15% on all Trade Me purchases from any international seller to a New Zealand buyer.

Here’s what you need to know:

• International sellers will provide us with a GST exclusive item price and a GST exclusive shipping price. NZ GST of 15% will be included by us, and this is what Kiwi buyers will see on listings.

• Buyers will continue to pay the GST inclusive price. However, international sellers will receive the GST exclusive payment.

• When a New Zealand buyer makes a purchase from an international seller, we’ll be sending a GST receipt.

• Our terms and conditions now reflect these changes.

Check out our Seller Information Centre for more details, or get in touch if you have any questions.
