  1. Do Not Allow Retailers To Take Over Wheedle - like they have with TM

    I have noticed with TM that retailers have hijacked the site - the suggestion for this lies in the prompt "Would you buy New or Used?' Then there is the imagery going along with the prompt that depicts second hand goods, in a shabby light.

        Your search engine needs to revamped. It is second rate and needs to be a lot simpler. Your low listing prices are great but people are impatient and if they can't search for what they SPECIFICALLY WANT WITH EASE they will quickly go back to TM because it is quick and simple. I think your strategy is wrong. People are creatures of habit, they will go to what they know because they are used to it or because it is convenient.
        eg. If a petrol station is 5k's further away from your home and offers cheaper fuel then the one…

          Hi there. Thank you for your suggestions. I have passed having more options in vehicle listings on to our development team for their consideration.

          We appreciate your feedback, so any other suggestions you have please let us know!

          Thanks

        • Please place yourself more in the general Media's eye to compete with Trademe

          Having just joined Wheedle I am highly motivated by your favourable fees structure to list but put off by one big problem and that is your lower viewing stats in online ads overall compared to TM. I feel you need to do more to get into the general NZ mass media's eye to promote yourself. When news items about "unwanted Christmas gifts" come on the radio or TV, TM is mentioned as of natural right but Wheedle is ignored. You have an ad campaign but it obviously hasn't hit the mark. You can deal TM a major blow in the…

          • GIVE PEOPLE A REASON TO TALK ABOUT YOUR SITE... THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA

            Greate an app with easy to use -search, -listing with.uploading and paypal to buy items. A huge mistake is making it free to list an item- most people will think if something is worth doing you have to pay for it. So the mind automatically thinks if its free there is a catch. Another mistake is the name WHY? WHEEDLE??? We are here to trade so my neuro associations tell me TRADE ME.

                The problem with TM is that they have become to corporate and don't care about the person. It they don't like you for whatever reason they kick you out. No reason. I sure many have had this problem. They are very prejudice because they hold market share. I hope Wheedle will change all this. New Zealanders need to be aware they have some where else to go other than TM.

                  Thank you for your suggestion – we are working had to be a fair, easy and fun to use site for all New Zealanders, so your feedback is greatly appreciated.

                  • Make it easier to list My Products from scratch

                    Making My Products is a nightmare, importing csv files is hopeless if you are NOT importing your exported from TM, to start new ones is a real mission? I give up, it's complicated and it will stop most people using it I believe. I am totally familiar with TM My Products but this is crazy. There isn't even a photo upload, you need to list the photo names and then later when you try to edit My Products the photo name box is gone.

                    Sorry but I know TM very well and make websites and I still don't have the…

                          • Fixed price offer to watchers when the original buyer/bidder fail to complete the sale

                            There have been a number of cases where buyers win my auction but fail to complete the sale so other watchers lose their opportunity to show their interest to buy. If there is a option where you can still offer a product to other watchers when the original auction/sale goes nowhere with the original intended buyers/bidders.

                            • Make it possible to search your own watchlist.

                              My husband always has HEAPS of things on his watchlist (most of the time he is dreaming...) but when he wants to show me something or look at a particular listing again he has to trawl through 10 pages of items on his watchlist before he can find it!

                              Please please please make a search bar in the watchlist part so we can search for things in our own watchlists and not waste time going through every page again.

                              Thanks and good luck!

                                Hi there – thank you very much for your feedback! This is a really great idea – I have passed it on to our development team for their consideration. Keep your eyes out – this could be added to the site in the future! If you have any more great suggestions, we would love to hear them

                              • I would love this site to Thrive. Do This:

                                I'm a member, I would love this site to Thrive. TM has increased it's fees ridiculously since it's launch. Two Suggestions:
                                1. Let everyone bring their rating from another site (trademe/ebay); (this could be done by placing a unique code on one of our auctions there) I think this alone would get media attention free!

                                2. Although much harder to do now: Wheedle?? ...Does not roll off the tongue. A catchier name would have helped majorly in the beginning (and STILL could if possible...). This would also catch media attention for free. I'd seriously invest in this company with these…

                                    Can there be an improvement for support for successful wins..there are no links on the won auction for refund, complaints about seller, etc.

                                    I have a bad feeling about an auction I won 5 days ago....I have not got replies from 2 friendly emails so decided to browse for "complaining". It was disappointing to follow through on the help topics to discover the 2 options were to apply to the "tribunal" and to give feedback on the robber. That brings tit for tat and works against me! The auction has only cost me some $20 and not bothered with my…

                                      a pretty mousetrap is not a better mousetrap. The clue here is "Where do people in NZ trade outside Trademe and why" .. you have not identified that niche.

                                        Thank you for your suggestion – we are working had to be a fair, easy and fun to use site for all New Zealanders, so your feedback is greatly appreciated.

                                      • I reckon there is room in NZ for a second hand book marketplace, and Wheedle could be it.

                                        And some targeted marketing would help, perhaps targeting existing second hand bricks and mortar book shops. How about write to them by snail mail. Most books sell slowly and for not a large amount. Wheedle's fee structure, no limit on free listing numbers, free 14 day listings and free multi photos are all attractive to book sellers. However, saved searches would need to be in place as plenty of people are looking for specific books or authors. The other site is overwhelmed by a few huge listers of new books which puts people off searching.
