Trade Me has made a new push for auctioning off old goods. Featuring an old treadmill and dress, the campaign encourages owners of dust-gathering and rust-covered items to list them on Trade Me and turn them into extra cash.
While the treadmill jests its owner won’t run the marathon like he says he will, the dress sulks about its owner not wanting to wear it twice.
The push is a new aim for Trade Me who have recently been focusing their attention on retailers selling new goods through the site, introducing flat shipping rates, buyer-seller protection.
Trade Me currently is also going through a possible accusation, with its resigned CEO Jon MacDonald remaining at the helm longer to support its new moves.
