Registration on Trade Me is free. There's a simple registration form which we require you to fill in before you can start trading.

We 'll send you a confirmation email to confirm your email address, so click the link in the email to activate your membership. If you haven't received a confirmation email, it would be worth double checking your junk mail settings aren't blocking our emails.

If a confirmation still doesn't come through, please get in touch.

Business memberships

If you're using your account to sell goods on a regular basis, we recommend that you open a business account. To be considered eligible to open one you need to have a feedback rating of 95% or more on your personal account.

Business and personal accounts don't share a username or email address, and memberships must be kept entirely separate.

Business accounts automatically have the ‘in trade’ flag turned on, and are charged slightly different fees – check out our fees help page for more info.

To register for a business account, make sure you're logged out of your personal account, and fill out the registration form.

Note: Buying and selling on Trade Me is restricted to members located in New Zealand and Australia, except where a member has been specifically accepted as an ‘international’ seller by Trade Me. Sellers based in Australia must have a NZ bank account, and may not sell vehicles or property located in Australia.
