Trademe does not offer buyer protection like ebay does. Thas poor service.
BUT you should be ready to stay without REAL help from Trade Me when you paid to a seller but didn't get goods. They can give info to police about the seller but they say to you that police has not interest to such small problems like $20. It is strange cos the seller didn't send goods to 10 buyers who paid more than $20 even. But Trade Me does not care! Otherwise cos of popularity it is goog site to buy and sell. I'm happy with such opportunity while I'm sitting with my baby at home.
Great site. Fun buying and selling stuff, very addictive.
They have had a virus inside a click ad which caused havoc for a thousand users before they caught it. They helped fix their pc's.
9 out of 10 one of the best sites I use.
