You can authorise apps to connect with TradeMe right? Surely could verify a user also was this user on TradeMe and link through to help establish trust

Listing goes under an alias, sale between the two parties is done using Facebook credentials. IE, you're anonymous to the public, not so much to the actual buyer/seller.

surfisup1000: Trader history/feedback is another reason why trademe will be difficult to topple. 

I have a good trading history, why would I want to lose 10 years of trading history to jump ship to a new trading platform?

In my view, auction websites should be regulated in that people should own their trading histories and be able to move them between sites. Kind of like number portability . 

It is just clarifying who owns the right to ones reputation. 






In a way I don't think feedback is that important these days. I don't often look at someones feedback. Very difficult to make it portable. If they regulated for that, then they would have to do the same for things like yelp, facebook etc, and their reviews. I mean who actually owns the feedback / review?

gzt: Trademe own all your base.

 

Is there a source for that? I would have thought that something people write, they retain copyright for what they have said, as well as any liability if it is defamatory .

I was really surprised hearing Trademe say this morning only 6% of products sold are over $200 so price increases will be minimal.

I'm really surprised that figure is so low, it really shows how the site is become rather meaningless for online sales of anything but cheap junk.

Surely this has to be the biggest single fee increase, well, since I joined TM 12 years ago.

I tend to look at certain categories, but there must be lots similar to mobile accessories which are chocka with crap and with multiples (10) of the same listing, massively skewing the percentage down to get it to 6%.

If you trade as a brand you can achieve that.

Old meme based on badly-translated videogame: All Your Base Are Belong to Us. It means complete domination on a specific sector.

Ah. Thanks! Being old and a bit special needs in an internet sense I had never heard of that.

(That video makes perfect sense if you say the captions in your head in a Japanese accent!)

Sold a few big ticket items in recent times. Glad to get those sold before the fee hike.

Bring on eBay to NZ!
