I just received an email from a new trading site because of something I bought in the past on Trade Me. The site looks legitimate and they say their source most of their stuff from England. A lot of their products seem to be cosmetics and the like (and English food!), though they also have a hardware section. They claim to be cheaper than ordinary retailers for most things they carry. I don't know if they are or not but thought I would pass it on here in case anyone is interested. I'm not sure about the rules in this case so I won't risk posting a link but if anyone wants to know more just PM me.

Cheaper as they are not a NZ company?

 

Cheaper as there is no GST?

 

Cheaper as there is no CGA?

 

Just give who they are :-)

Yup, if it's not your own Co. Then dropping a recommendation is clearly allowed as we all regularly recommend tech products and sellers on here :)

They say they are a NZ company but only do on-line sales and they source most of their stuff from Europe via UK importers. I'm happy to give you the company site if you PM me but I don't want to post it here because I'm not sure what is allowed and I don't want to get banned. I don't know anything about this outfit except what is on their site. I'm just passing on the email they sent to me in case it might be of use to anyone.

You've been around long enough to know what's okay around here and what isn't. It's not link dropping if you have no affiliation with the site or the people running it. And of course no posting an affiliate link to gain any advantage.

If you aren't willing and prepared to tell us all about this wonderful new site, the thread will be locked and hidden. No cloak and dagger stuff thanks.

Cheers!




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

As long as I have official approval I'm happy to pass on what I know. And no, I am not certain what might be regarded as link dropping and what wouldn't and I would rather err on the side of caution. How can anyone know if someone isn't getting a benefit on the side from pushing something? 

 

The site is http://www.everydaylowprices.co.nz/. I never heard of them before I received the email today but they say they have been around since 2015. I took a cursory look at their site and they didn't seem to have much in stock yet, but it could be a promising venture if they continue to develop it. That is all I know.

Looks very much like an online version of a $2 shop, except more expensive.

I thought the name sounded familiar, they have a TradeMe store. Can't remember exactly but I believe I bought something from them (batteries?) last year. 

 

 

 

The look of the website doesn't really give you much confidence. The FAQ says their website is "100% SSL secure" but none of the pages seem to use a secure connection, even the checkout page.
