FACEBOOK TRADE GROUPS
Trade groups have become a very popular and effective way for quickly trading small items, better even than trademe because there is no selling fee or much data entry - just post up a picture and some details and people can message you direct. The real benefit is that you can quickly scan through all the recent posts so things you weren't even looking for may catch your eye.
FACEBOOK TRADE ON WAIHEKE
If you don't already know about it, Waiheke Trading on facebook has been going great guns and is a fabulous way to trade small goods on the island. Check it out here;
WAIHEKE TRADING GROUP
(You will need to apply to join the group, or if one of your friends is already a member they can invite you.)
While the fast and easy access is great for smaller items for smaller amounts, what doesn't work so well is if you have an item that is more expensive, like lounge suites, cars or quality tables and furniture. Because they are less ímpulse driven due to a higher cost and need for transport/haulage, they don't get the same attention as smaller items and so tend to fall away on the feed. These larger items might take weeks or months to get the right buyer, in which time your post can get lost in history unless you are constantly bumping it to the top.
STAKE A SPOT
To help with this, you can take a display ad here on Planet Waiheke for $10 a month, and link to your ad from facebook, email or any other site you like. The ad stays up until it sells, so if it takes a bit longer you can just let it roll over. Just send us the pictures and any info you have and we will make them look good and put a display price on. We'll just roll it over at $10 a month till you tell us its sold, which on items worth over $200 is a pretty cheap way to get it out there.
CHEAP AS CHIPS
Trade advertising is reserved for items over $200. Items are listed on behalf of traders with their contact deals. Planet Waiheke does not have any part in the trade. Each listing is $10 and runs for one month or until sold. Listings may be linked to other trade websites. Planet Waiheke takes the set fee, no percentage of sale. It just gives people a solid way to display their valuable sale assets.
