I had listings for items on Trademe that have since sold
Since Trademe charges a fee for withdrawing them, I added a few 00's to the start price.

Trademe cancelled the items because they thought the listing wasn't real.
How do they know that my item wasn't worth the new price?

Saved me withdraw fees anyway (but probably put a black mark against my account somewhere)

lack of communication from a trademe seller, its more then a little annoying when you spend more then 100 on something, the only thing i really want from them is confirmation they got the money and a message once its been sent so i can keep eye out for the package... heck the email can just be one in the same.

Or over zealous buyers that email 3 hours after buy knowing, asking if the item is shipped then never communicate with you again by confirming they got it or giving postive feedback.
