    The new TradeMe alternative

    Hi everybody.
    I just wanted to take a moment to tell you all about the new trademe alternative. It's http://www.dealing.co.nz. We're proudly100% kiwi owned and here to make online trading affordable again. To entice you along to have a look at the site, firstly let me say that until the end of June, we're 100% free, regardless of what you're selling, your bike, your house, old furniture.........what ever! One very cool feature you will find on www.dealing.co.nz is video embedding. You won't find that on any other site in NZ. Cool huh?

    So how much will it cost to advertise after the end of June?
    $1.00.................yep, just $1.00.
    Heres how it will work from July 1st. If you are selling your item as an auction, it will be completely free to list, including up to 30 photos + video embedding, subtitles etc. When your item sells, it will just be a $1.00 success fee. This applies accross the board, regardless of what you're selling. Bikes cars what ever. So, that's it, just $1.00 success fee to sell your motorbike at auction.

    To sell your motorbike as a fixed price classified, just $1.00 up front, and no success fee upon sale..........total cost, just $1.00. This includes 30 pics and video embedding just as you may hope for. All these little extras are all inclusive, not something we charge for.

    Naturally we have the spares category and everything else you would hope to find in any good auction site. So remember, completely free until the end of June, then just $1.00.

    Please check us out at www.dealing.co.nz and support a kiwi company.

    abit of feedback after a quick squiz...

    can you use more drop down boxes to choose categories instead of having to navigate through so many layers of choices?

    Eg. when I click on cars, immediately show all "car" listings, and then have drop down boxes to refine the search by brand, type etc.

    Just my 2c... useability is key!

    - Your navigation is hard to use, especially with being so far to the left on widescreen format monitors (yes it is quite common nowadays). TradeMe's navigation is simple and effective being in the middle of the screen with relatively large font. Not saying you should copy it but they indeed have the main idea right. Ebay navigation sucks.
    - Do press release to major news website (herald, scoop, stuff). Short one will do, but make sure to tell them your web address and why it is different from the other 271,882 trading websites. Wait....forget Stuff (they own TradeMe).

    I think before this, you need to get people (or online shops) putting up lots of items for sale... otherwise joe public logs on once, sees there's not much on and doesn't come back...

    you definitely need good widespread exposure in the media to kick the ball off rolling. I will tell everyone I know about it...the rates are fantastic! I guess that will change as the usage increases
    Are you going to put up 'users currently online' stats? would be good to know how many are looking..

    BetradeMe appears to be doing itself no favours, recently.
    Viable alternatives are most welcome.
