TradeMe set to raise fees
One man's trash might be another man's treasure, but flicking off old junk online will soon cost more when Trade Me boosts its fees.
The auction site makes the change from February 7, when its "success fees" on a basic listing will jump to 7.5 per cent. Previously only 6.9 per cent of the sale price was deducted from a seller's online credit.
Fees on more expensive sales are also going up.
Items in the $200-$1500 range will be charged an additional $4.65, a raised flat fee of $15 plus 4.5 per cent.
This means a $200 sale will attract $24 in fees rather than $19.35.
An auction that sells for more than $1500 will be charged a slightly higher $73.50 flat fee plus 1.9 per cent - $2.40 more than before.
What do you think about this change?
