Auction NZ Site Eyes Trade Me Traffic

Auction NZ Site Eyes Trade Me Traffic

Auction NZ is a new online auction website set to rival Trade Me. Adam Fenech owner of Auction NZ is going from strength to strength with the site receiving more and more hits each day.

Currently Auction NZ has over 2000 members. Auctions range from Clothes to Computers to household items.

Auction NZ has a "can do" attitude which is the reason it will succeed as a dominant player in the New Zealand online auction scene.

There is a feedback system where buyers and sellers can leave feedback about each other to help future buyers and sellers decide whether or not to trade with the said member.

Auction NZ also had a great forum where members can chat with each other about almost anything. The forum is a very busy place with over 20,000 posts so far.

Auction NZ does not charge any fees for buyers and fees for sellers are very reasonable at only 3% commission when an item sells. When an auction is listed on the seller can choose to pay for additional features to further enhance their auction. Such as home page features, or bold listings.

More buyers and sellers are needed to make Auction NZ a real success. Registering as a member of Auction NZ is a painless process and is as simple as clicking on Join Now at Currently all new members will receive a $10 credit to be used for auction fees, so there is nothing to loose.

Fenech who currently owns a computer store in New Plymouth and an online store has several strategies for growing Auction NZ, including approaching businesses to open an "Online Store" on the Auction NZ website to sell their products. Stores are already set up with several currently trading on Auction NZ.
