Heads up: Success fees and Top Seller discount

Written by The Trade Me team in General and Top Seller at 2:46pm, Thu 27 Jan 2011

We wanted to give you a heads up that as of 7 February, we are making a few changes to our success fees and our Top Seller programme.

First of all, we’re increasing our Top Seller discount on all auction fees (including extras) to 15%. That’s an increase from the previous 10% discount.

We’re also including more traders in our Top Seller programme. From 7 February, you may qualify over the standard six-week period if you sell 60 or more items or $10,000 of items (the existing sell-through rate and feedback criteria still apply).

We’re also increasing our general item success fees. We last changed our fees for general items back in 2008, and since then our audience has grown by 91% and we’ve introduced a number of new site features. Remember, you only pay a success fee if your item sells.

Here’s a chart with the success fee changes marked in bold:

Please note that sellers who list an item up until 11:59pm on 6 February will be charged the current success fees, even if the item sells on or after 7 February.
