We wanted to let you know about some changes we’re making to our privacy policy on 1 August.

Trade Me Job Profiles

In December last year we announced a change we’d made to our privacy policy to enable us to begin work on Trade Me Job Profiles, which enables job hunters to display relevant skills and experience to recruiters and prospective employers.

SafeTrader has closed

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 10:30am, Mon 3 Jul 2017

Today we switched off our escrow payment service SafeTrader.

Very few members still use this service and we want to focus our efforts on developing better products for our members. Buyer Protection, Ping and Pay Now are just some of the newer products we have that provide safety for all members when buying or selling items on Trade Me.

If you're still using SafeTrader to complete a trade then please get in touch with us, so we can help you finalise this.

SafeTrader closing soon

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 2:00pm, Mon 19 Jun 2017

We’re closing down our escrow payment service SafeTrader on 3 July 2017.

SafeTrader has been around since November 1999, however very few members still use it and there is no longer a strong need for this service. We now have better products that provide safety when buying or selling items on Trade Me such as Buyer Protection, Ping and Pay Now.

We’re always working hard to improve the experience for our members. To focus on building better products, sometimes we choose to stop providing services that are not highly valued or frequently used by our members so we can focus on those that are. More...
