List Sell Trade Prepares To Welcome Sella Users


List Sell Trade Prepares To Welcome Sella Users

New Zealand owned-and-operated auction, advertising, and trading site List Sell Trade is preparing itself for an influx of displaced users from the APN-owned Sella, following Sella’s suspension of auction services and the planned integration of www.sella.co.nz into the New Zealand Herald website.

List Sell Trade continues to offer consumer-to-consumer auction and fixed price sales listings, features which will (at least initially) no longer be available at Sella after APN’s announced decision to re-focus it as a business-to-consumer offering.

“We know that Sella’s user base is made up of people who are interested in a viable alternative to Trade Me and its high fees,” says List Sell Trade director Brenda Treacy, “and we’re well placed to continue to offer them that alternative now that Sella is moving away from the consumer-to-consumer auction and sales listings market.” Ms. Treacy added that List Sell Trade had already fielded enquiries from Sella users looking to find a new online auction and listing venue.

List Sell Trade operates under an “all you can list” policy, allowing users to list and sell as many items as they like for a flat fee of $10 a month, with no success or other fees. Bidding and buying on the site are free.

Ms. Treacy said that List Sell Trade already had features that would make the move from Sella to List Sell Trade easy for many Sella auction users. “We’ve already integrated with several third-party systems to allow our users to transfer bulk listing information” she said. She added that List Sell Trade has the functionality to offer a listing information transfer service specific to Sella clients.
