New ‘EasyTrade’ service simplifies logistics for Trade Me sellers
Posted on 30-Apr-2012 14:29 | Filed under: News



For many sellers on Trade Me, storing, picking, packaging and dispatching orders is a time consuming and expensive part of their business. It’s a job that has to be done right as the remedial costs from mixing up an address, packing an item badly, or shipping the wrong product to the customer can far exceed the price of the goods shipped.

To help Trade Me sellers focus more on the essential parts of their business, such as buying, selling and marketing, Brightstar NZ and Tradevine have joined together to create a new and unique fulfilment service offering called “EasyTrade”.

EasyTrade combines the expert warehousing and shipping services of global logistics giant Brightstar with the superb multichannel e-commerce software that Tradevine has developed for Trade Me sellers and New Zealand retailers.

The new service recently went live with its first customer - Trade Me Top Seller, “Bouncingzombies” – who says: “I’ve been storing and shipping my own stock for years and it’s been hard to take time off. With EasyTrade all I need now is my laptop and the internet and I can run my business from anywhere and anytime, safe in the knowledge my stock is being professionally handled and shipped to my customers.”

Prior to establishing a partnering relationship it was coincidence how Brightstar and Tradevine met: both companies happened to be working on the same fulfilment proposition for Trade Me sellers.

Peter Montgomery CEO of Tradevine explains: “We found that we were both fielding fulfilment enquires from Trade Me users, and realised that we could work together to bring the EasyTrade service to market. Linking our respective software makes for a great user experience – the minute an order is taken on Trade Me it flows into Brightstar’s system for immediate packing and shipment”.

Jamie Cormack, General Manager of Brightstar NZ says: “We're excited to roll out this new fulfilment service to the Trade Me selling community. By channelling our experience and expertise into the SME market, we see a great opportunity to help smaller Kiwi enterprises enjoy the benefits of a world class logistics service while taking away the headaches and distraction that running their own supply chains can entail."
