TradeMe Faces Criticism for Poor Customer Service and Lack of Buyer Protection

TradeMe, the popular online marketplace in New Zealand, is facing criticism for poor customer service, high fees, and a lack of buyer protection.

  • Unreasonably high fees and Poor Service

    Used to be a great Kiwi company which is now a hugely overpriced monopoly with poor customer service and ever increasing fees. Purchased by overseas holding that doesn't care about New Zealand. All they want it top margin and onsell it with profit to another investor fund.

    Purchased an item on trademe from Salelink store, postage said 4-7 days, 5 weeks later I’m still waiting for the item, left negative feedback to warn other buyers that items paid for may not arrive, trademe removed the feedback, no item no say. Two businesses acting fraudulently.
