Canada is just our northern territory

Now I've seen it all in TradeMe land... A week ago sold small 80c lot to "John" from Nelson. A few days later he advised me that he is Fergus from Canada, and can pay by international bank draft by mail, for which he needs my postal address. He did not ask questions before bidding. My first thought ...

Just one person - Brett Waterson.
He also built qwerk.co.nz and klickex.com, Turners Auctions software and some other projects.
Good guy, but lacks marketing skills :)

Sorry, Scott, but oneway.co.nz built from scratch and long ago, and still running. :)

New fees - TM tricks

From 1st February TM introduced new fees structure. Flat rate 7.9% on any sale over $1, and no fees below $1. Sellers of expensive items will be significantly out of pocket. Sellers of low-volume items will save. But wait, there are some tricks on TM part. You did not expect TM to lose on fees, righ...

Re: More Feedback Problems

Your link goes to "selling" feedbacks. They have more negatives for buying:

Re: eBay stagnating, Amazon attracting merchants

Aliexpress too cuts its share from eBay. It grew really popular among buyers in the last few years.
Site offers better security, as it does not pay seller unless buyer confirms delivery of goods.

Re: KRN4 - Off in a Flick of the Tail

I dont understand what are you guys doing, and what is your real goal, but you act very weird. You gossip around the people you even dont know. Why you hate us so much? Maybe you are an opposition, people who are selling Mane`n Tail also? Its looks like. But I can tell, we are not opposition to any...

Re: New Auction Page Layout for some categories

I do not browse "new layout" categories on TM anymore. If I need something from there, I use eBay or other places to find and buy goods - much easier (and usually cheaper and safer). I try to sell one item under Fashion now, and the first week it turned 0 views, the second one - 3 views and only bec...

Re: Chinese to buy 24 NZ dairy farms?

I hear a lot of cry along the lines: do something to not sell our land to foreigners. But I never heard about local property owner refusing to sell to higher paying foreigner and offering an asset to local buyer with less money. Kiwis look at property as an investment, and expect returns. Market wit...
